OTA Report: Notes & observations from sideline


The Giants hosted their seventh OTA at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on Monday, with the final three following on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. The weather was perfect with a lot of sun, highs in the low 70s and a light breeze.

*The Giants returned to a lot of red zone work in this OTA. The offense managed four straight touchdowns in the early 7-on-7 period, with touchdown passes to Isaiah Hodgins, Jamison Crowder, and Kalil Pimpleton. It would be the beginning of a trend in today's practice, where the offense and defense would alternate making consecutive big plays against the other group. 

*Bobby Okereke had a strong day roving the middle of the field and got his hands on two passes. 

*Micah McFadden also managed an interception, coming up with a short pass just beyond the line of scrimmage. 

*Darnay Holmes had an interception, showing excellent concentration to bring in a bobbled ball to secure the pick. 

*Crowder has been as-advertised in camp. He is a quick and excellent route runner out of the slot with reliable hands. He came up with a couple of touchdown catches today. 

*Collin Johnson has been just as reliable for Tyrod Taylor, catching wo touchdowns from the backup quarterback. 

*Darren Waller continues to thrive catching passes from Daniel Jones. His size is a very attractive target in the red zone, and Jones has not been hesitant to target him any place on the field. 

*Jashaun Corbin caught a pair of touchdowns in practice, including one of the prettiest catches of the day. After rolling to his left, Jones found Corbin right by the pylon. Corbin extended his arms to make the catch and then did a picture-perfect double toe tap to secure the reception. 

*Veteran Jaydon Mickens has had no trouble getting open in 7-on-7s and caught a touchdown from Tommy DeVito. 

*Darius Slayton, David Sills, Jeff Smith, Isaiah Hodgins, and Lawrence Cager also had touchdowns.
