On Leonard Hankerson:

"He has significant upside as a long strider who can stretch the field and use
his quality size (6-foot-2) on shorter routes, but the frequency at which he drops passes is a bit stunning"

I was really hoping Hank would start opposite Santana. I don't remember him having a problem with drops at the U but I guess he did. I remember him making big catches when everyone knew the ball was going to him. He looked like a great physical receiver. Hopefully, he puts some more time in catching footballs off the machine.

I was also unaware of his drops problem until I saw that he was working with Mark Duper in the off-season to try to combat this problem. Lets hope he gets over this (would not be the first WR to have this problem early in his career/college and then fix it) and goes on to have a productive career for us!

They've been training together since 2009. They used to be neighbors. I think he needs to go to Fitzgerald camp. He seems like a hard worker. I hope the drops become less frequent, so the coaches will trust him.

Re: Training camp 2011 thread

Yeah i am most excited to see how the new additions on the D work out. Last year we knew entering the season we didnt have the right peices and it showed.

I dont expect the D to be top 5, but hopefully with the pieces we added and another offseason to add more pieces next offseason . . we can get back to being a top 10 D.

On the offense, i get the feeling this year we will see pretty much the same as last year. Maybe hopefully a lil better but i dont have much hope for a significant increase on the O as I do the D.

Re: Training camp 2011 thread

This sucks- Looks like Cooley is going to miss "at least a few more weeks...."

So this essentially ends his preseason, or at best maybe he gets some action in the last game. Fred Davis is going to have a real shot to show out as TE 1.

A blessing in disguise, perhaps? Cooley is the kind of player whose versatility will fit in nicely to an already established offense, like the one he will be returning to.

Re: Training camp 2011 thread

Does anyone know what kind of injury Malcom Kelly actually has? I have never heard a good explanation of what is wrong with him. All i know is they say it is his foot.

I believe his specific foot injury is called plantar-vaginitis. I think some dark chocolate and milk might cure it right up.

Re: Training camp 2011 thread

Didn't feel like making another thread about this, but...

Blast from the past.. Kelly and Thomas will forever be linked at the hip. Both could never stay on the field healthy. At least they got paid millions of dollars to stay on IR and warm up the bench..

Quote:
Coughlin on D. Thomas: 'It'll be a while' - Giants Blog - ESPN New York

As far as Devin Thomas and his dislocated finger are concerned, head coach Tom Coughlin says, Itll be a while.

Its a bad spot for a receiver, Coughlin said of the injury, in which the bone broke the skin.

For Thomas to return, the training staff has to confident there will be no infection.

Im sure it will be until the time when they feel like hes not going to gain some kind of infection because of the taping, untaping, showering, all that, Coughlin said. So, lets face it, its a bad spot for a receiver because there are an awful lot of things that Devin could be doing out there other than that. Itll be a while, itll be a while.

Thomas had been a candidate for the No. 3 wide receiver spot, but with him not being able to compete for that spot in training camp, that appears in jeopardy. Thomas had also been hampered by an ankle injury during camp as well.
