Giants HC Tom Coughlin was reluctant to answer a question about which players impressed on the first day, but he did mention one by name: WR Rueben Randle.
“I was very impressed by Randle out on the field this morning,” the Giants coach said.
“What you see on film, it looks like we have a receiver that is capable of making some deep catches, running by some people,” OC Kevin Gilbride said. “As you guys have seen us unfold with those other two guys (Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz), they’re intermediate (threats) and certainly Hakeem can go deep.
“But you need that third component so that when people start skewing over and clamping down on Cruz and Nicks, you’ve got a guy who, if he gets 1-on-1, has the ability to get over the top and hurt people like Mario Manningham did.”
It appears that Randle is on track to become the team's WR3 behind Nicks and Cruz.
