Video: Rookies to watch
By Ohm Youngmisuk
So the fine video people up in Bristol asked me to do a video on a rookie to watch in camp. Of course, I couldn't just pick one. I had to go with David WilsonandRueben Randle.
But Giants fans know all about those two already. So here are a few other rookies to keep an eye on in camp, especially if you are planning to come up to Albany (and if that is the case, I will provide times and schedule for practices Thursday morning).
Here are some of the rookies to keep an eye on in camp:
RB David Wilson: Already being labeled as the most explosive player on the team.
WR Rueben Randle: Going to be fun watching him compete against Domenik Hixon, Ramses Barden and Jerrel Jernigan.
CB Jayron Hosley: Quick cornerback who has had some moments in OTAs and minicamp. Somewhere behind the top three cornerbacks on depth chart at the moment. Also can be an asset on special teams as a returner.
TE Adrien Robinson: The "JPP of tight ends." That's all we need to keep an eye on this guy.
DT Markus Kuhn: Cleared from visa issues, the native of Germany will finally take to the practice field. We haven't been able to see the seventh-round pick do much at all so far.
WR Brandon Collins: The 5-11 receiver has impressed some already in rookie camp, OTAs and minicamp.
WR David Douglas: Has good hands and athleticism. Douglas and Collins could be practice squad possibilities.
RB/FB Joe Martinek: Giants like his versatility and attitude. Rutgers product could be a lock for practice squad unless injuries open something up.
LB Jake Muasau: The coaching staff liked this undrafted free agent so much in rookie camp that they brought him back for OTAs and minicamp and moved him to third-string MLB while putting Greg Jones at outside linebacker. Giants say Jones still will get snaps at MLB in camp.
S Will Hill: Talented safety looking to make the most of opportunity with Giants and so far he has impressed Perry Fewell, who has praised Hill's attitude so far.
S/CB Janzen Jackson: Another defensive back who was passed over by some teams due to off-the-field issues, but Giants liked his versatility enough to move him between safety and cornerback in OTAs and minicamp.
Tell us what you think of these rookies and who you are excited about below.
