2. Malik Nabers wasn't the only rookie to turn heads at minicamp

Yes, Nabers has been fun to watch, but let's not forget about other first-year studs. The list includes Theo Johnson, who is going to have to step his game up early on. Why? Well, it's because after months of rumors flying around, Waller finally made the call and let the Giants know ahead of minicamp that he's retiring.

Daniel Bellinger is going to have to step his game up in Year 3, as he's now the leader of the TEs room. However, Johnson, a fourth-rounder out of Penn State, will need to be a top pass-catching option for Jones moving forward. Thankfully, Johnson has reliable hands and he moves pretty well for a man of his size. We're excited to see what he can do.

Another offensive rookie to keep an eye on is no question Tyrone Tracy Jr. The fifth-round pick, per Art Stapleton, is already pushing to be the lead back on passing downs. Tracy is a WR-turned-RB, so it makes sense why Daboll might want to use him more for the aerial attack. Tracy also has the potential to be a special teams playmaker. He may have been a late-rounder, but NY fans should be hearing his name a lot in the regular season.
