New York Giants OTAs Retrospective: Did We Learn Anything?

Here are three things we learned last week during the New York Giants OTAs.

  1. Injuries will happen regardless of how soft Commissioner Roger Goodell wants to make practices for NFL teams. Witness the torn ACL of Brian Witherspoon and the broken foot of Hakeem Nicks, both suffered in non-competitive drills.
  2. David Diehl will play right tackle and Kevin Boothe will begin as the starting left guard. Maybe Mitch Petrus can take that spot away from Boothe, but installing Boothe in that spot is typical of the Giants. Tom Coughlin is nothing if not loyal to players who are successful for him.
  3. Running back might be the most interesting position to watch unfold throughout the preseason. Ahmad Bradshaw and first-round pick David Wilson are locks. Fullback Henry Hynoski should also be a lock -- and might have a bigger role in the offense. But, the competition between DJ Ware, Da'Rel Scott, Andre Brown and Joe Martinek will be fun to watch as it unfolds.
