New York Giants rookies took to the field for the first time during the rookie minicamp. With it still being mid-May, there’s not a lot of groundbreaking details to find out, but it was still the first time these players have been in Giants uniforms on the field. Let’s take a quick look at a collection of what was reported from the field on Day 1.

There was one notable omission during practice, fifth-round pick R.J McIntosh did not participate.

We’ve talked about how Saquon Barkley’s receiving production could be more important than what he does as a runner and the first-round pick was running routes early in the practice.

Third-round pick B.J. Hill made an impression working the blocking sled...

...which was located next to the Port-a-Pottys...

...but was also well-watched.

There was a little clearer look at some of the defensive linemen getting some drill work in.

The Giants have not yet committed to either side of the line for second-round pick Will Hernandez and in the first practice he spent time on both sides.

His snaps, as well as those for the other offensive linemen were closely watched by the general manager.

Kyle Lauletta Updates

Haley, an undrafted cornerback out of Penn State is a guy to watch and should have a good chance of making the final 53-man roster with a lack of quality depth at the position.

It all ended with the second overall pick leaving the field last.

That’s it for the first day. Check back tomorrow when we’ll have another report from Day 2.
