This year’s biggest, and most pleasant, surprise is Nasir Adderly out of Delaware.

Adderley has high end coverage skills and tackling White B.J. Hill Jerseys , making him a desirable candidate to start in a single high role on defense. His projection would pair best in a man scheme, where he is then able to focus on prowling for the football as compared to passing off coverages. Adderley has excellent anticipation and ball skills, can be an impact starter. - Kyle Crabbs (The Draft Network - Scouting Report) Does He Fit The Giants?Adderley should be a good fit for what the Giants like to do on defense. He is typically used in deep zone coverage, and passers rarely targeted him there his senior year. While Delaware ran a lot quarter coverage, Adderley has the traits to give confidence that he will be able to play in single-high safety looks. He will face a significant jump in competition leaping from Delaware to the NFL, but he should be able to handle it. Adderley does a lot of what the Giants want from their free safety. He has a background as a cornerback letting him play in man coverage near the line of scrimmage B.J. Hill Jerseys 2019 , is quick to come down and play the run, and is a capable blitzer. He could deal with blocks better, but that should come with coaching.

Wide receiver Odell Beckham was the subject of trade chatter last offseason White Kyle Lauletta Jerseys , but wound up participating in offseason work and signed a big contract extension with the team before the start of the regular season.That seemed to settle the question of where he’d be playing football for the foreseeable future, but Beckham stopped short of declaring himself happy to be with the team in an October interview. There’s been more chatter about the prospect of a trade after Beckham missed the final four games of the year with a quad injury.All of the above led to a question for Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman about the team’s plans for Beckham when he held a press conference on Wednesday.“We didn’t sign him to trade him,” Gettleman said.Beckham had 77 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns to go with a pair of touchdown passes before he hurt his quad and that’s exactly the kind of production the Giants were looking for when they signed him in the offseason. The headaches that can be part of the package with Beckham were something they were well aware of when they made the deal, so it seems the plan is to continue down the same path in 2019.
