Throughout training camp for the NY Giants, several guys have been standing out. The list of course includes Darnay Holmes, Kadarius Toney and others. On the other side of things, however, there have been players who haven’t put together the kind of performances people were hoping for.
With that said, there truly are some guys in the Giants squad that really need to show some improvements from last year. With not too many practices left before preseason games arrive for the team, it’s time for these four players to take things to the next level.
4. OL Jon Feliciano
Jon Feliciano was signed in free agency, joining general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll on the move from Buffalo to East Rutherford. Feliciano, who played guard for the majority of his NFL career, made it clear that he wanted to make the switch from guard to center when he signed with the Giants.
Unfortunately, Feliciano hasn’t had the ideal start he would of wanted to training camp, especially with a new team and a position change, as he has missed some practice with heat and hydration issues. This has resulted in other players taking reps there, such as Shane Lemieux, who has been the left guard for the G-Men the past two seasons.
Lemieux and 2022 third-round pick Joshua Ezeudu have been in a camp battle over the starting job at left guard. With Lemieux seeing reps at center, it could open the door for some movement during game days if Feliciano is ever sidelined.
Feliciano must respond to the critics with some strong reps the rest of camp, as he is already has the label of being the weak spot on a revamped offensive line. Feliciano has some time to bounce back, but he’ll need to get moving on that.
