Thomas makes good first impression

Very nice article about Terrell Thomas , the USC cornerback drafted in the second round by the Giants, in Newsday the other day.

It is way too soon, of course, to be putting Thomas in the Pro Bowl. He did have an impressive weekend at mini-camp, though, and from his comments you can see why the Giants think he fits in their secondary.

"I hate playing off," he said. "I can do it, but I love being in a receiver's face, challenging him."

That is exactly the type of aggressive attitude defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is looking for.

The Thomas pick raised eyebrows, since he was relatively unnoticed at USC and has a history of injuries. The more I learn about him, however, the more I think he has a chance to be a very good player for the Giants.
