Giants news, 4/25: Sterling Shepard — Davis Webb can be QB of the future

Let’s learn about that and the rest of your Giants news with the draft getting closer

NFL: New York Giants at New England Patriots
Davis Webb

Wide receiver Sterling Shepard said Tuesday he sees no reason Davis Webb can’t be the New York Giants quarterback of the future.

“I don’t see why not. If he works hard and keeps doing what he’s doing and has the same attitude, I don’t see why not. He’s been learning a lot from Eli and what better guy to learn from than Eli,” Shepard said.

The wide receiver has had an up-close look at Webb’s offseason preparation.

“I’ve been with Davis going over the offense. He lives in the same building as me, so I’m fortunate to have him with me. I go over the plays with him every night. He’s a guy that studies really hard, knows the offense like the back of his hand already. He’s been in here the whole offseason, so I try to surround myself with guys like that and just work tremendously hard. That’s all you can ask from a guy in his position,” Shepard said.

“He knows the new offense, I wouldn’t say like the back of his hand, but he knows it pretty well. He’s been up here throughout the whole offseason and has been going over some stuff, so he knows it pretty well.”

Giants offensive lineman Chad Wheeler endorses Sam Darnold - NY Daily News

Wheeler, who lined up as the Giants' first-string right tackle in Tuesday's first practice of voluntary minicamp, played left tackle for the Trojans when Darnold was starting as a 19-year-old redshirt freshman in 2016. And he said Darnold showed the traits of a steady leader right away.

"I think it starts with the little things with him," Wheeler said of Darnold on Tuesday. "He just kind of would be the same guy, in and out the building, bring the same attitude and approach every day no matter if it was a locker room, game practice. I think those are good qualities of someone who has to lead and take command of an offense."
