Recap Paul Dottino on WFAN

A quick recap of Paul Dottino from WFAN during his interview with Mike Francesca while at GIANTS camp today:

  1. Believes that Tom Coughlin might be looking at keeping a kick-off specialist(Lloyd) this year. Especially given the serious concerns regarding the special team coverage.
  2. Starting wide outs will be Nicks and Manningham; with Manningham shifting to the slot in the three  receiver sets with Hixon moving outside.
  3. Victor Cruz has had a sub-par camp and has not been impressive at all. Has not looked dynamic at all.
  4. Kenny Phillips came into camp overweight. Hard to tell if he has lost a step because he played last season at about 70%.
  5. T. Thomas is looking like a pro bowl corner. This might be his year to become an elite corner in the NFL.
  6. B. Witherspoon has impressed in camp. Quick, shifty, and agile corner who could return kicks. Has been working with the second team defense but could be a good player for this team. Dottino compared him to a young Everson Walls.
  7. Regarding Osi: Believes Osi wants to be with the GIANTS but on his terms. Believes Osi will play well this year; next year is the real question.
  8. Kiwi has looked excellent so far in camp. He is fully recovered and looking to impress this year.
  9. Tight end is going to be a year long issue: Beckum cannot block, Pascoe is not an explosive receiver and Ballard is just young and raw at this point.
  10. Dodge versus Weatherford is even after week one. Dottino believes the GIANTS want Dodge to win and that is why they have brought in Feagles to tutor him.
  11. It may take Baas a couple weeks into the regular season to completely jell, but the GIANTS are extremely high on him. They love his in your face attitude that he takes.
