This episode of the ‘Valentine’s Views’ podcast is a special one, with a first-ever appearance on our show by long-time NFL talent evaluator Dave-Te Thomas, who is both exceptionally knowledgeable and delightfully unique.

Topics discussed:

  • The mess at wide receiver, where Dave-Te predicts a revolving door of players coming and going throughout training camp and the preseason.
  • Thoughts on the Golden Tate suspension.
  • Dave-Te’s feeling that if the Giants are going to have a successful season in terms of won-loss record, Eli Manning is going to have to play better than he has for a while.
  • The “pettiness” of some ex-Giants.
  • Dave-Te is bullish on Darius Slayton. Now, if he can just get on the field.
  • UDFA tight end C.J. Conrad is a player to watch. An offensive line sleeper might be UDFA Paul Adams.
  • Dexter Lawrence is a player Dave-Te is high on.
  • Corey Ballentine is a “kamakaze” on special teams.
  • Jabrill Peppers should eventually be a free safety.
  • Dave-Te is not a Daniel Jones fan.
