GIANTS NO. 13 IN PFT’S PRESEASON POWER RANKINGS
The team over at ProFootballTalk has been unveiling its preseason power rankings, and the Giants, who are set to hold their first training camp practice on Saturday, came in at No. 13, one spot ahead of the Dallas Cowboys.
“If the NFL seeded every team one through 32 last January and had a playoff tourney, the Giants would have been a chic sleeper pick to win it all,” Mike Wilkening wrote. “Everyone knows New York is a serious threat no matter its seed.”
Looking at the NFC East, the Giants were second behind the Redskins (No. 11 overall) and ahead of the Cowboys (No. 14) and Eagles (No. 26).
TWEET OF THE DAY
“I like his size. I like his mental… Cooper is a very intelligent young man. Right now we have him playing the will position as well as a safety and so I really like his size and his mental capacity, but he is a rookie. He’s messing up just like normal rookies would do and so he’s running around, but he has a lot on his plate. But I really like his size. 6-4, running a 4.4 40… I mean that’s pretty good. God didn’t bless me with that type of size, even as a linebacker.” – Safeties coach David Merritt on the Giants’ fifth-round draft choice Cooper Taylor (WATCH INSIDER)
