Takeaways from OTA No. 2: Malik Nabers gets on the board


The Giants were back on the field for OTA No. 2 at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. They spent the bulk of the morning practice in the red zone, leading to plenty of action during 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills.

So, let's get right into the touchdowns, takeaways, and other top plays from the day:

See all the action from spring practices at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.


Rookie wide receiver Malik Nabers notched one touchdown, likely two if it were a live game. The no-doubter was on a scramble drill by Tommy DeVito during 11-on-11 drills in the red zone, where last year's undrafted quarterback eventually found this year's sixth overall pick in the back of the end zone.

Earlier in practice, Daniel Jones kicked off 7-on-7 red zone drills with a completion to Nabers. The receiver took it up the sideline, but because no contact is allowed, he veered out of bounds at the goal line with a defender in pursuit. Whether or not he got in can be adjudicated in the locker room or during a film session. They can all agree, however, that during a live game, the competitive Nabers would be on the board for six.

Drew Lock threw a handful of touchdowns during team periods, including a pair to rookie running back Tyrone Tracy Jr. He threw two more to wide receiver Miles Boykin on back-to-back plays and one apiece to Gunner Olszewski (more on him next) and tight end Tyree Jackson after looking off a defender.

Olszewski, a midseason addition who recorded the second-longest punt return in Giants history and the longest in 95 years in Week 17, reminded people that he is officially listed as a wide receiver with another touchdown from Nathan Rourke.

Claimed earlier this month off waivers from the Patriots, Rourke has not played in a regular-season NFL game, but the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder did set the Canadian Football League record with a 78.7 completion percentage in 2022 as he earned the league's award for Most Outstanding Canadian. The newcomer also threw touchdowns during Tuesday's "development" period to Boykin, Chase Cota, and John Jiles, who showed his vertical leap on a highlight grab in the end zone.

Second-year wide receiver Jalin Hyatt caught a touchdown from DeVito.

Running backs Devin Singletary and Eric Gray each scored on the ground, but again, they can debate it in the locker room.


Defensive back Jalen Mills had the lone interception, which came on a tip drill in the final period. A Super Bowl LII champion with the Eagles, the veteran Mills signed with the Giants in March as a free agent. He has made 83 career starts in 106 regular-season games.

Other Notable Plays

Second-year cornerback Deonte Banks broke up a pass in the end zone to start 11-on-11 drills. He forced another incompletion later in practice.

Outside linebacker Brian Burns forced a throwaway. Rookie linebacker Darius Muasau also caused an incompletion in 7-on-7 drills.

Cornerback Nick McCloud sniffed out a swing pass and would have made a tackle at or behind the line of scrimmage.
