Touchdowns, takeaways & top plays from OTA No. 7

JULIAN-LOVE

The New York Giants returned from the long weekend for the seventh of 10 organized team practice activities (OTAs). It was a shorter one before the team boarded buses for the organization's annual charity golf outing.

Here are the highlights from OTA No. 7:

TOUCHDOWNS

*Quarterback Daniel Jones and rookie wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson hooked up for a touchdown from the red zone. The second-round draft choice wasn't done there. Robinson hauled in another short touchdown pass from Tyrod Taylor later in practice in a fourth-down situation.

"We have a very clear vision for the player and look forward to utilizing him," coach Brian Daboll said after the draft.

Daboll added, "I think he can play inside, and I think he's strong enough and fast enough, even though he's a smaller, shorter guy, that he can contribute outside, too. Again, what we're trying to do is put as many generating pieces out there to create pace and stretch the field, whether it be vertical or horizontally, and this is another good guy that has ability to run after the catch, which is an important aspect of it."

*Wide receiver Austin Proehl and tight end Chris Myarick caught short touchdowns, both from Davis Webb.

TAKEAWAYS

*Cornerback Maurice Canady ended practice with an interception during a two-point conversion situation. Canady, who entered the NFL as a 2016 sixth-round draft choice by Baltimore, joined the Giants on May 18 in a series of roster moves that included the addition of four defensive players with NFL experience.

MORE TOP PLAYS

*Wide receiver Darius Slayton had the highlight of the day, corralling a pass that was tipped near the sideline. Slayton showed good concentration staying with the redirected pass and managed to secure it in stride.

"He's been dependable," Daboll said of Slayton earlier in OTAs. "He's known what to do. He doesn't talk a whole lot. Pretty quiet guy but a pro. I've got a lot of respect for him, how he handles his business both on and off the field. He's done a good job."

*Safety Julian Love had great coverage in the red zone and forced an incompletion.

"Dependable, smart, plays tough on tape," Daboll said of Love last week. "I think he's done a good job in his group. Been a good leader for us, good communication with X (Xavier McKinney) out there. It is really a pleasure to be around. Seems like we can use him in a lot of different roles and he's, I'd say, ready for that challenge in terms of understanding the playbook and being able to perform it out there on the field up to this point."
