Practice Report (7/31): Observations before pads come on


The Giants practiced in shells for the second consecutive morning on Monday. Temperatures touched 80 degrees in what was the longest practice of the summer (approx. 1:45).

* Instead of doing wide receiver-defensive back 1-on-1's after the individual portion of practice, the Giants worked on 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 passing drills alternating on the right and left side of the fields. Adoree' Jackson broke up a pass in one of the two-man games, while Darnay Holmes played good coverage on another play.

* Nick McCloud played tight coverage during his two reps during that initial period. Later, a pass was thrown ahead of a receiver and McCloud drove on the ball and came up with the interception.

* The final part of most of these early practices has been a competitive portion where the coaches on both sides of the ball call the plays to create a facsimile of gameday where nothing is scripted. The first-team offense got the ball in the end zone on a Darius Slayton pass over the middle. It was set up by a Daniel Jones-Parris Campbell connection on the sideline, where Campbell turned to his back shoulder to come down with the ball cleanly and get his feet down near the sideline. Campbell made another leaping catch later in practice.

* Jalin Hyatt caught a deep pass toward the sideline after getting behind the defense. An even more impressive catch came earlier in practice. He ran into a hole in the zone and Jones threaded the ball to Hyatt, who had to reach out while getting his feet inbounds to secure the catch.

* During the first session of 11-on-11's, Tyrod Taylor hit Daniel Bellinger for a touchdown. In the same period, Jamison Crowder reached out to grab a one-handed catch in the middle of the field. Bellinger caught another touchdown at the front pylon.

* Deonte Banks, Micah McFadden, and Tre Hawkins had pass break-ups during practice. McFadden, Azeez Ojulari, and Kayvon Thibodeaux found themselves in the backfield.

* Tuesday is the first padded practice and it starts at 5 p.m.
