Rueben Randle: 'I'm a lot more confident in what I do'

Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

Second-year wide receiver Rueben Randle hoping to make bigger impact on offense this season.

Last season Rueben Randle was drafted by the New York Giants in the second round and spent most of the year as their punt returner. This year he is ready to show them everything he's got. Randle's confidence is higher and he's ready to prove that he can be an impact guy as a wide receiver.

"I feel pretty good," said Randle during OTAs this week. "I just want to go out there and make plays and make an impression. I'm a lot more confident in what I do going out there and making more plays and understanding the offense and on the same page with Eli [Manning] and also getting more trust from the coaches and go out there and get more reps so I can show my ability more. I'm ready to step up and make more plays this year."

Coach Tom Coughlin mentioned that with Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks not attending OTAs Randle has an opportunity to step forward. Coughlin said that Randle is moving in the right direction and that "If there's a guy that really has a chance to step his game up and really show what he can do it's happening right now for Rueben."

Randle caught 19 passes for 298 yards (15.7 yards per catch) and three touchdowns as a rookie after being selected 63rd overall by the Giants out of LSU. He said this week that he knows the opportunity presented by the absence of Nicks and Cruz.new

"I understand that going in anyway," said Randle. "I think that's why they drafted me. They wanted me to come in and make an impact. I've just got to go out there and get my job done and do it to the best of my ability. You've just got to go out there and do what you're supposed to do. Two guys are gone, but the rest of us have got to step up and get the job done."
