David Sills – NY Giants WR

When the NY Giants’ first depth chart of the summer was released Wednesday, Sills is currently head of first-round rookie Kadarius Toney.

Sills has built a strong case to make the team, making at least a couple of nice catches per day during practice. His strong training camp shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, after Sills spent a significant amount of time traveling and training with Daniel Jones throughout the offseason.

All of that work on timing between young quarterback and receiver has manifested itself on the practice field.

Sills has the frame to be a big-bodied 6-foot-3 and 211 pound target for Jones in the red zone as well as over the middle on contested passes. Given that Toney has been limited throughout camp, and John Ross has been sidelined the past several days with an injury. Saturday night presents a major opportunity for Sills to make strides towards winning a job.
