We have reached the mandatory minicamp portion of the NY Giants offseason and there are plenty of talking points for fans to enjoy. There are still some questions head man Brian Daboll must answer before the preseason gets here, but we're going to get a close look at this team this week.

After going 6-11 last season, the Giants simply have to turn things around, as we're entering Year 3 in the Daboll/Joe Schoen era. With that said, what should fans keep an eye on at mandatory minicamp in East Rutherford? Here are five things in particular we have in mind:

5. Will Cor'Dale Flott maintain his momentum to start at CB2?

One of the biggest storylines from the Giants this offseason has been who will man the CB2 position alongside Deonte Banks. Surprisingly enough, Schoen opted not to draft anyone in the offseason to play the position, seemingly trusting the current secondary to find their guy - Schoen alst missed out on Steven Nelson, Darous Williams and Tre'Davious White.

Early on, it seemed the strongest candidate for this was Cor'Dale Flott, a third-year corner who has shown flashes of excellence thus far. While he played in the slot for most of the 2023 season, when put outside, he shined. This is backed by the extreme confidence Jerome Henderson and the rest of the Giants' coaching staff has had in him over the offseason.

Last season, again, while playing in the slot, Flott allowed 40 receptions on 62 targets for 452 yards, three touchdowns, while posting an interception. His size and skill set are best fit on the outside, but with Adoree' Jackson and Banks playing ahead of him last season, he was forced to move to the slot.

It will be interesting to see how Flott performs in minicamp. The Giants have a pretty talented receiver room, so if he can hold his own it could be a good sign of what's to come in the 2024 season and on. Keep in mind that NY could end up signing a veteran CB soon too. This will be something to keep an eye on.
