Giants might use rookie Beckum at HB

New York Newsday - [Full Article]

The Giants drafted Travis Beckum in the 3rd round April 26. Beckum will take part in the Giants' rookie minicamp Friday and Saturday. It's been years since the Giants have had an H-back like him, a weapon who can create mismatches with linebackers and safeties. At 6-3, 243 pounds, Beckum won't be asked to do much blocking. The Giants aren't quite sure what they'll be asking him to do. Like the staff at Wisconsin, the Giants will be designing new plays to maximize Beckum's abilities at a seldom-used position.
"It'll be fun to do that," Tom Coughlin said. "There are certain things you try to feature or develop with that particular kind of player." Beckum will get a better idea of those things beginning today.
