WR Rueben Randle
Building off a strong showing in OTAs and minicamp, the second-year wide receiver's stock keeps rising at training camp. Randle, the Giants' 2012 second-round draft choice, has come down with some of the biggest catches from the first week at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center, while spending time with the first unit with Hakeem Nicks being limited by a groin issue.
CB Prince Amukamara* Co-starring with Randle has been Prince Amukamara, the Giants' former first-round pick entering his third season. The cornerback and wide receiver have been challenging each other all camp, and when one has made a big play in practice, the other has been right there to respond. The competitive streak of Amukamara has pleased Tom Coughlin, who said "he's rising to the occasion."*
DE Damontre Moore* The Giants' third-round draft pick didn't wait for the full pads to come on to set the physical tone at practice. Perhaps overzealous at times if you ask Coughlin – and fellow rookie Justin Pugh, for that matter -- Moore has come out of the gates strong at training camp and has exploded off the ball on every snap. Coaches will be anxious to see what he can do in the Giants' first preseason game, which is 10 days away.*
CB Aaron Ross* Rejuvenated by his return to the Giants, Ross hasn't missed a beat on the field with his coaches and teammates. He's coming off back-to-back practices with interceptions, including a nifty one on Monday that still had Coughlin talking about it on Tuesday. "He really enjoys being back, and he has a big smile on his face," the coach said. "He's worked hard, I like it."*
TE Adrien Robinson**
Back in the spring, tight ends coach Mike Pope said Robinson has gone to the "Land of the Believers." Now Robinson is making believers out of anyone who has seen him at camp this year. He's as athletic as they come at his size, and now he's putting it together mentally in practice, making a few outstanding grabs along the way. He was also on the receiving end of Steve Weatherford's touchdown pass off a fake field goal attempt on the second day of camp.
