1. More Darren Waller highlights please

You've surely heard a lot about tight end Darren Waller in recent months. Well, we're hoping that continues this week in Jersey. The hype is real for Waller leading up to the new campaign, as he and Danny Dimes have wasted no time in building their chemistry. They looked strong together at OTAs.

Now, they'll have a great chance to get even more familiar with one another at minicamp. Waller gives this offense a completely different kind of package. Offensive coordinator Mike Kafka is a huge fan of Waller's game and it's easy to see why. He's going to be a big-time threat for the O, especially in the red zone.

Waller has had a rough couple of seasons, as he missed 17 games over the last two years with the Las Vegas Raiders. When healthy, however, no one can aruge that he's among the best tight ends in the NFL.

This will be crucial for the Giants, who gave up a third-round pick for Waller, moving forward. We think that will be the case. On top of that, Big Blue Nation's excitement for Waller's debut vs. the Cowboys in September will only go up if he hauls in some touchdowns from Jones during minicamp.
