Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Love says Wink Martindale is one of the most approachable coaches he’s met and that Martindale has big plans for him.
Michigan tackle Chris Hinton fills the second description perfectly. With just 55 tackles and two sacks over three years, he was never the star at Michigan. But he made the jobs of Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo much easier in 2021 because he occupied the middle of the offensive line.
His top competition to make the New York Giants roster is Arizona State’s D.J. Davidson. Davidson was a fifth-round pick and stands at an impressive 6’3” and 327 pounds. He has 23 pounds on Hinton but measured as a significantly worse athlete in his vertical and broad jumps. There is an opportunity for Hinton to beat his drafted counterpart for a final roster spot.

The Giants also added explosive Kentucky safety Yusuf Corker, but I’ll go with Allen — and his behemoth traits. The 6-7, 253-pounder (33 5/8-inch arms, 80 7/8-inch wingspan) can get in the air and finish with the best of them (10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, 34-inch vertical). He’s also very agile. There’s work to do here, but there’s so much to work with.
