With Jason Pierre-Paul still not appearing at training camp, the development of Kerry Wynn becomes all the more important. The undrafted free agent impressed in his rookie year and looks to be a bigger contributor in 2015. Now it appears that he is given that chance as the New York Giants list him as a starter in their first unofficial depth chart. Wynn didn't know about th depth chart until teammates told him, but expressed confidence in his ability.

"I feel like I can be a starter," he said.

Wynn knows he has no guarantees.

"To be honest, I don't really put much into it. I mean, whether I'm a starter or I'm a second team player, I go with the same mindset to do what I can to help the team and make sure I'm doing my job ....I'm definitely trying to get better every day, cut out, don't have any mental errors and just make sure I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing," Wynn said.

The Giants like defensive ends with the versatility to move inside on passing downs. The 6-foot-5, 264-pound Wynn can do that.

"I played inside in college so I'm comfortable there and outside obviously, so I'm pretty comfortable in everything," Wynn said.

Whether he starts or not, Wynn looks like a player who will be a major part of the defensive end rotation.
