Larry Donnell:

You know that I cannot get enough of Larry Donnell. I think the big 6-6 tight end is a good player on the path to becoming great. Donnell surprised many last season by becoming the Giants number one tight end. Donnell exploded on the scene in a game against the Washington Redskins where he had three touchdown receptions. That was his entering of the big stage and now he has to put on a show in 2015.

Donnell is entering his third season in the NFL out of Grambling State. The biggest problem Donnell had in 2014, his first year as a starter, was fumbling. Donnell lost control of the football four times which certainly frustrated Tom Coughlin. Donnell needs to do the little things, like securing the football and running precise routes to become an even better player this season.

Donnell had a strong and solid 2014 season as far as the stats are concerned. Donnell caught 63 passes for 623 yards and six touchdowns. I cannot stress enough how important it is to remember that the best is yet to come from Donnell.
