So far through the NY Giants OTAs, we have seen some players stand out in a strong way. Guys like Darren Waller and Nick McCloud have been putting on a show and have us excited to see what they can do during the 2023 season.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, there are some players who have been a little quiet. These guys may not be stars this season, but it would be nice to see them make an impact this year. A good way to get their names in the mind of the coaches is to have a standout OTA, so they better get cooking and soon.
These four guys have been quiet through OTAs, but could very well play a big role if they show out within the next couple of camps.
4. CB Aaron Robinson
Coming off the heels of an injury-riddled 2022 season, Aaron Robinson enters a new season with likely his last chance with the Giants before he is eventually moved on from. It won't be easy, as the Giants have plenty of depth at corner. Despite this, Robinson has a chance to move up the depth chart if he begins to show out at the remaining OTAs.
Robinson hasn't had it easy thus far in the NFL, having dealt with some pretty rough injuries in his rookie and sophomore season. However, when he's been on the field Robinson has shown some promise to be a speedy man-coverage corner.
In the 11 games we've seen out of Robinson since his third-round selection, he has racked up 32 combined tackles. Alongside this, he has allowed 18 receptions on 33 targets for 181 yards and one touchdown. Considering how inconsistent his playing time has been due to injuries, these stats are pretty darn solid.
We're hopeful for what Robinson can do, but with all the players Joe Schoen added in the secondary this offseason, Robinson needs a standout OTA performance to help make his case. Realistically, Robinson can get snaps over everyone not named Adoree' Jackson and Deonte Banks, he just needs to stay healthy and keep performing well.
