NY Giants offensive line
In: Andrew Thomas, Evan Neal, Tyre Phillips, John Michael Schmitz, Mark Glowinski, Ben Bredeson, Josh Ezeudu, Marcus McKethan, Matt Peart
Out: Shane Lemieux, Devery Hamilton, Jack Anderson, Wyatt Davis, Korey Cunningham
Thomas and Neal are the Giants two starting tackles, and Glowinski is trending toward starting at right guard again. The joint practices in Detroit also revealed Schmitz at center, and Bredeson at left guard, which is the most likely interior lineup to start 2023.
Schmitz was by far the most impressive Giants offensive lineman on Friday. The center logged 19 pass-blocking snaps and did not allow pressure. He also picked up his progressions very well, which was great to see.
Peart played 32 snaps and allowed just one pressure, which should help his chances to make the team as the swing tackle. According to PFF, Wyatt Davis recorded an unfathomably bad 21.2 pass-blocking grade, and Korey Cunningham's, 17.4, was somehow even worse. Those two won't sniff the Giants 53 and shouldn't even be wearing Blue after the performance.
NY Giants tight ends
In: Darren Waller, Daniel Bellinger, Lawrence Cager, Tommy Sweeney
Out: Chris Myarick, Ryan Jones,
No Giants defender has yet to be able to stop Waller this summer, and the Lions defenders found it equally problematic. After his strong rookie season, Bellinger is firmly entrenched as the No. 2 tight end, while Cager is locked in as the Giants No. 3.
The real intrigue with the tight end position is whether the Giants will keep four guys. Tommy Sweeney caught a touchdown pass in the Giants preseason opener from fellow Don Bosco Prep Alum DeVito. Sweeney is familiar with Daboll's offense from their time together in Buffalo. Mike Kafka's will likely use a lot of 12-personnel in 2023, so tight end depth will be necessary.
