Touchdowns & Top Plays: Offense shines Thursday


The Giants were back on the practice field Thursday for the penultimate OTA practice at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.

The offense spent a majority of the team drills practicing inside the red zone, which produced plenty of fireworks. As we've seen throughout these spring practices, both sides of the ball have displayed tremendous effort during individual and team drills. The hard work put in during this part of the offseason should help the team jump right back into things when training camp kicks off next month.

"It's important," head coach Brian Daboll said about OTA practices. "Again, it's a voluntary camp, but we've had a great turnout. Again, this is really a teaching camp, too. It really is, particularly for the young players, so they're mentally prepared going into training camp in a month or so."

Let's dive right into the touchdowns and top plays from Thursday's practice.

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


*We'll begin with the 7-on-7 period, which saw Daniel Jones throw three consecutive touchdown passes to open the session, two to Jalin Hyatt and one to Malik Nabers. A few plays later, Jones found Wan'Dale Robinson in the back of the end zone for another score. The veteran quarterback finished the period five-of-six with four touchdowns.

*Moving to 11-on-11 drills, Nabers made two highlight reel grabs for touchdowns on passes from Drew Lock, one from the 30-yard line and the other from 35 yards out. Nabers' speed and quickness have been evident from the sideline, and his teammates have taken notice, as well.

"I'll just say how explosive he is at his weight; the way he catches the ball; what he does after the catch. The run after catch, all of that is elite," Hyatt said about the rookie receiver. "When you bring that to us and the Giants and with Coach Dabs, we can do a lot of things with him. Put him everywhere. That's one thing about him. You can put him everywhere, outside and inside, slot, running back, whatever you want to do. That's the type of receiver he is, and we're going to make sure we get to the ball to him."

*Lock threw two more touchdown passes during team drills. On the first one, Lock scrambled out of the pocket and found Isaiah Hodgins open in the back of the end zone. With the ball set at the 10-yard line later during practice, Lock hit Wan'Dale Robinson at the goal line for what likely would have been a score in a game situation.

*With the ball on the two-yard line, Tommy DeVito hit Allen Robinson for a short touchdown.

*Nathan Rourke also threw two touchdown passes, one to Lawrence Cager and the other to John Jiles.


*It was a clean day for the offense as they kept the ball out of the defense's hands.

Top Plays

*Lock began the first 11-on-11 period with four consecutive completions, ending with two straight passes to Nabers, including the rookie's first touchdown grab. Lock also connected with Darius Slayton and Wan'Dale Robinson.

*Dexter Lawrence stuffed a run at the line of scrimmage towards the beginning of team drills. Later in the period, Boogie Basham picked up what likely would have been a sack, while Jalen Mills broke up a pass. Basham picked up another pressure later during 11-on-11s, and Alex Johnson stopped a screen pass at the line of scrimmage.

*Nathan Rourke made a nice throw on the move to Chase Cota for what would have been a first down.

*Nabers wasn't the only rookie to get in on the action. Lock found Tyrone Tracy Jr. in the flat on a play in which the running back made an impressive grab to secure the football. On the next play, Theo Johnson made a great catch in a tight window from Lock.

"Tracy has been a good -- I wouldn't say surprise later round draft pick, but he's done a good job in this camp of picking up the information pretty quickly," Daboll said about the rookie running back.

*Kayvon Thibodeaux got into the backfield a few times Thursday, forcing the quarterback to get rid of the football on multiple occasions.

*With the ball set at the five-yard line, Carter Coughlin made a nice play to stop the receiver immediately after he caught the ball at the line of scrimmage. On the next play, Jason Pinnock broke up a pass in the end zone. A little bit later in the period, Jordon Riley batted down a ball at the line.

*On the final play of team drills, Tre Hawkins III and Tyler Nubin combined to force an incompletion in the end zone.
