Touchdowns & more top plays from OTA No. 10


And then there were none.

The New York Giants wrapped up organized team activities on Friday, holding their 10th and final practice of this phase of the offseason program. They return to the field on Tuesday for a three-day mandatory minicamp before breaking until training camp in late July.

"It will be a little bit longer," coach Brian Daboll on the plan for minicamp. "We'll do an extra walk-through with the practice, but it's not going to be over the top. Again, no pads on. Player safety is important to us. We will be in a little bit longer meetings but not too much. Fairly similar."

Here are the highlights from OTA No. 10:


*Rebounding from a dropped pass in Thursday's practice, wide receiver Darius Slayton made the catch of the day in the front corner of the end zone on a ball from Tyrod Taylor.

"Nobody has a perfect career. Nobody has a perfect game, perfect day," Slayton said after Thursday's practice. "So definitely in our line of work where you're catching all the time and everybody feels like they can catch a ball because they've thrown it in the backyard, so when you drop it, you look like an idiot. Obviously, reality is we're all human, so definitely always have to keep a next-play mentality."

*Daniel Jones threw a touchdown to wide receiver Richie James, who signed with the Giants in March. Originally a seventh-round draft pick by San Francisco in 2018, James played in 40 games with 10 starts over three seasons with the 49ers. He has also played in three postseason games, including Super Bowl LIV. James missed all of last season with a knee injury.


*It was a clean day for the offense in the turnover department.


*Running back Saquon Barkley hauled in a handful of passes from Jones, a frequent sight at OTAs.

*Safety Xavier McKinney once again displayed his coverage skills. He prevented two potential touchdowns, one on a deep pass down the sideline. Later, he got his hand on another pass in the end zone during red zone drills.

"I just wanted to take [my game] to the next level," McKinney said last week about how he tackled his offseason. "I think my biggest thing this offseason has been a lot of film study. I've just been diving in on film and just seeing different things that the offense does, whether that splits, how they run things when they are going to run things, situational stuff. That's really been my biggest thing. Every day I train but I want to make sure that I overemphasize just staying in the playbook, staying, watching game film, watching practice film, watching myself, seeing what I can improve on. I think that was the biggest thing for me as far as really taking this thing to the next level. A lot of times, that's what separates the good guys from the great guys is the film study part of it – that's what I know, that's what I've seen, so just been focusing on that."

*Wide receiver Alex Bachman had a sizeable catch-and-run on a well-timed ball from Taylor. Fellow receiver Austin Proehl also made a handful of catches.

*Defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence batted down a pass at the line of scrimmage.

*Cornerback Khalil Dorsey forced an incompletion in the end zone.
