It’s midway through the New York Giants’ 2018 season

Womens Customized New York Giants Jerseys , so it’s time to check in on the rookie class. It could be argued the play of this class is one of the few positive points in the season so far. To assess the impact of these players, we’ll break them into categories instead of handing out arbitrary letter grades.Promising building blocksWill Hernandez, OL, second round (34th overall)There might only be one offensive lineman who hasn’t been disappointing this season and that’s Hernandez. He had possibly his worst game of the season against Washington, but the UTEP product has easily been the most consistent lineman on the team — admittedly not a high bar when there have already been three starters replaced.Throughout the first eight games of the season, there have been more instances when the rookie has helped out veteran left tackle Nate Solder than the other way around. There have been some rookie mistakes, as would be expected, but Hernandez has been the best lineman in pass protection, can be a beast in the run game, and has the athleticism to pull on the rare occasion the Giants ask him to do it.What’s been truly impressive about Hernandez is his awareness to always look for work. Once communication improves along the entirety of the offensive line, Hernandez has the chance to be a star.B.J. Hill, DL, third round (69th overall)Hill has made an impact with limited snaps. Those snaps will increase with the trade for Damon Harrison and the Giants might look for his impact to as well. Hill is tied for the team lead with seven tackles against the run at or behind the line of scrimmage (Harrison had nine). Tackles aren’t a perfect stat, but Hill has as many tackles (24) as Dalvin Tomlinson despite 82 fewer snaps. Here’s a play from the last game against Washington. Hill worked past center Chase Roullier (73) to fill Adrian Peterson’s intended gap and before the back had a chance to reset to the other side, Hill was able to get his hands around Peterson’s hips and bring him down for no gain.With two sacks, Hill is also tied for the team lead — though his impact has been mostly that. Sports Info Solutions has charted him with just two pass pressures and he’s only been credited with two quarterback hits. But converting on the chances is not a bad thing, even in a limited capacity, and he’s already shown the ability to rush from the interior and the edge. It’s complicatedSaquon Barkley, RB, first round (second overall)What can we say about Saquon Barkley that hasn’t been said already? We can come down to these two statements that can both be true:Barkley has been incredibly good given the circumstances.His selection hasn’t exactly helped the Giants’ long-term futureBarkley is second in the league by yards from scrimmage, which is great. Despite that, the Giants’ offense has been ineffective for most of the season. For as good as Barkley has been, does anything about his play so far prove that running backs are more important than the offensive line when it comes to a good run game? The Giants are 21st in rushing DVOA. Barkley’s production has also dropped off over the past few weeks. He’s now 13th in rushing DYAR (a counting stat) and 15th in DVOA (efficiency) after he was among the league leaders over the first few weeks of the season. By Expected Points Added, all of Barkley’s rushing attempts have combined for minus-4.0 EPA. Football Outsiders has him 31st among running backs in success rate. Some of that is out of his control, but that’s also kind of the point.The question now going forward is how valuable will Barkley be for the next era of the Giants’ offense? There’s the argument that placing a new quarterback into an offense with Barkley and Odell Beckham will help, especially with an improved offensive line, but when will that be? Is that going be 2019 or will that stretch into 2020 and 2021 when Barkley will be on the third and fourth years of his rookie deal when he’ll make $8.5 million and $9.9 million?So when you judge Barkley do you focus on his individual accomplishments (quite good) or do you focus on the lack of overall impact on the quality of the offense? It’s going to be an argument possibly for Barkley’s entire Giants tenure or at least until the offense is good again. But even that should take a new quarterback and improved offensive line. That is why it is and will continue to be complicated.Wait and seeLorenzo Carter, EDGE, third round (66th overall)Not putting Carter in the promising category might be a surprise to some. But Carter is the rawest prospect the Giants drafted and while there have been some flashes to get many excited, the play-to-play consistency leaves something to be desired. Carter is tied with Hill for the team lead with two sacks, but that’s less impressive for an edge defender whose main goal is to get to the quarterback on every play. Carter does have those two sacks, but just five pressures per Sports Info Solutions charting. When put in the context of the amount of pass rush snaps he’s had this season , it’s at the bottom compared to the other pass rushers on the team.EDGE Pressue RatesPlayerPass Rush SnapsPressuresPressure RatePlayerPass Rush SnapsPressuresPressure RateCarter is definitely a plus-plus athlete. His Speed Score (weight-adjusted 40-time) was the second-highest of this edge rushing class. But the concern is the nuances of being a pass rusher have yet to click and Carter can be handled easily by opposing offensive linemen at times. Why that is a concern is that Carter wasn’t a full-time pass rusher in college. He had just 14 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss total across his four seasons. You could say that gives him more promise because he’s still just learning the position, but these athlete-to-pass rusher transitions don’t always go smoothly early in careers. Carter could click soon and become the secondary edge the Giants need or he could continue to show just enough flashes keep that promise but never put it all together.Kyle LaulettaPhoto by Elsa/Getty ImagesIncompleteKyle Lauletta, QB, fourth round (108th overall)There’s a lot more going on here than there was just a week ago. With the Giants struggling on offense, it would not be hard to imagine Lauletta getting some play over the second half of the season. But with his arrest this past week and the unknown consequences of it, that could be put in question. There’s still a lot to find out in regards to his situation, that will be something to monitor.R.J. McIntosh, DL, fifth round (139th overall)McIntosh has been on the non-football injury list since July. He finally got on the practice field in the middle of October and has three weeks from his first practice to be activated — that timeline would be around Nov. 7.UDFA roundupGrant Haley was promoted from the practice squad and got a start in the slot against Washington after the Eli Apple trade. He held up pretty well and was targeted just twice. He allowed one reception but was in close with the receiver who was brought down immediately. The Giants made a big effort to sign Haley after the draft and he’ll get a chance to make an impact as the slot corner for the remainder of the season.Sean Chandler made it on the 53-man roster out of training camp but spent most of the season playing special teams. He played 26 percent of the defensive snaps against Washington and will bounce between a dime corner and safety.Tae Davis has made his way into the linebacker rotation over the past two games. He played 17 percent of the defensive snaps against Atlanta and bumped up to 62 percent against Washington with Alec Ogletree out. Before that, he had mostly been on special teams.Quadree Henderson looks like he might be the legitimate return man the Giants have been looking for. Jawill Davis had that role before injury with a small role on the offense as a receiver.Giants practice report, 8/14: A Detroit writer’s takeaways from today’s workouts Hey, Giants fans! My name is Jeremy Reisman and I’m the managing editor over at Pride of Detroit, the SB Nation blog for the Detroit Lions. I’m here at the request of your glorious leader Ed Valentine to bring you personal observations from Tuesday’s joint practices between the Lions and Giants. While I’m sure many of you know the Giants a little better than I do, I think I’ll be able to put the Giants’ performance into context in a unique way, considering I know a lot about the players they’re going against. With that in mind, and a little guidance as to what may interest you, here are some observations from Tuesday’s practice about the Giants, but from a Lions point of view.Slay vs. BeckhamLet’s be honest, you were going to skip to this section first, so I may as well lead with it. We’ve seen Odell Beckham Jr. and Darius Slay face off twice before, but both matchups underwhelmed. In the first, Slay left the game in the first half with an injury. In the second, Beckham was coming off an injury of his own and didn’t quite look like himself.Tuesday, both looked full speed, and I must admit, Beckham got the better of Slay. The 2017 Pro Bowl cornerback has looked unbeatable in all of training camp, but it’s clear he hasn’t been lined up against anyone the likes of Beckham. Odell wasn’t completely dominant, but he consistently had a step on Slay and Eli Manning was able to find him more often than not.Also, during individual drills Beckham roasted rookie undrafted free agent Chris Jones for a bomb, which isn’t a nice thing to do to a guy with no chance of making the team.Kyle Lauletta getting the rookie treatmentI heard y’all have a backup quarterback battle brewing, and nothing grabs more headlines than a backup QB battle.Well, on Tuesday New York Giants T-Shirt , it didn’t look like much of a battle. It’s not that Kyle Lauletta looked bad—he didn’t. It’s that the Giants barely gave him a shot. During one-one-one drills, Lauletta was busy checking down to running backs against linebackers, while Eli and Davis Webb were throwing bombs to the wide receivers vs. corners.And when it came to full 11-on-11 drills, I could count the amount of reps for Lauletta on two hands. Toward the end of practice, each team (first, second, and third) got a single drive against the opposing defense. Lauletta didn’t even get a full drive. He split it with Alex Tanney.As for Webb, he had a very inconsistent day. He threw a couple deep dimes during the one-on-ones, but when it came to the full 11-on-11s, he looked much more uncomfortable. He sailed a handful of passes Tuesday, and when the Lions came with an A-gap blitz, you could see the panic in Webb, as he sailed a pass well over the receiver’s head and was nearly intercepted.It’s hard for me to give an honest review of Lauletta at this point in considering the very limited sample size, but it’s clear to me the Giants coaching staff isn’t ready to hand the fourth-round rookie too many responsibilities at this point.Saquon looks fineI’m no doctor, but I wouldn’t expect Saquon Barkley to miss any time once the regular season rolls around. Though he obviously didn’t practice on Tuesday, he did just about everything else the coaches would let him. He was even sporting pants and a helmet—missing only the shoulder pads.You can see above, he went through the motions of position drills early in the day before taking the rest of practice off.Overall thoughtsWhile I’m not going to sit here and tell you Team A was better than Team B, I will say that the Giants were able to control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball when the first teams were facing off. Jonathan Stewart seemed to slip through considerably-sized holes on a fairly regular basis. While that isn’t all that surprising from Detroit’s point of view—the Lions’ front seven is the team’s biggest weakness—it’s definitely good news for the Giants.When the Lions had the ball, the trenches were a little more evenly matched. Though the Lions running game continued to struggle, Matthew Stafford sat pretty comfortably in the pocket for much of the day. However, when it the second and third teams took the field, it was clear the Lions’ offensive line depth was no match for the Giants’ defensive line depth.However, the Lions’ skill position evened out the day. Marvin Jones Jr. and Kenny Golladay made some impressive catches over Eli Apple and Curtis Riley. Additionally, the Lions running backs—specifically Theo Riddick and rookie Kerryon Johnson—were giving Giants linebackers fits in the passing game. To be fair, those guys have been embarrassing Lions linebackers all camp, too.As for Eli Manning, I came away more impressed than not. He has a pretty clear command of the offense and looked decisive and comfortable the entire day. Perhaps it was just the juxtaposition next to Webb, but there was a certain command to the offense when Manning was in that made the Giants look efficient. The same can’t be said when Webb was i.However, Manning’s day ended with a poor read on a two-minute drill, leading to an interception by Lions safety Glover Quin. That’s the Eli Manning I know.If you want my Lions observations from Tuesday’s practice, head over to Pride of Detroit.Our thanks to Jeremy for the extra work he has done for us here. Hope you all appreciate it.
