Giants running backs Jashaun Corbin and Antonio Williams share many similarities. In addition to entering the league as undrafted free agents, both players are setting their sights high when it comes to their impact on the field this season.
Corbin and Williams recently joined the Giants Huddle podcast to share their goals for the season ahead and offer insight into the way that Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka are using their unique backgrounds to develop a new Giants offense.
Rookie Jashaun Corbin spoke to his unwavering commitment, sharing that he wants to become the "all around guy that can do it all." From developing his pass protection to working in the run game to catching passes to returning punts on special teams, Corbin recognized just how crucial it is for him to prove himself not only to his coaches but also his teammates. The wide receiver room, stacked with accomplished veterans like Saquon Barkley and Matt Breida, was nothing but accepting toward the first-year receiver out of Florida State, he revealed. "When I walked in, I felt like I'd been with the group for years already," Corbin gleamed.
Among the veterans in the running back room is Antonio Williams. Though it's Williams' first year with the New York Giants, his time at Buffalo lends him familiarity to Brian Daboll, Joe Schoen and most importantly the offensive playbook. Williams, too, hopes to make his presence on the field known. "Confidence is key," he said when asked how he will make the most of opportunities presented to him. Williams also revealed how his experience with Daboll's offense at Buffalo helped him to integrate quickly into the team dynamic and establish relationships with some of the veterans.
