- Rookie RB Andre Williams will have to earn his path to a higher depth chart standing.
- Fullback Henry Hynoski, who missed all of 2013 with a shoulder injury, begins training camp with the upper hand over John Conner.
- The Giants tight end depth chart could take a different form on any given day. Are they trying to send a message to Adrien Robinson by placing him at #5? No question. He’s got work to do to distinguish himself. The whole group does.
- Odell Beckham Jr. is not listed among the punt return unit.
