A breakdown of the New York Giants' 2017 draft class and its progress after two weeks of training camp:
Evan Engram, TE, first round (No. 23 overall): Engram was quiet the first week of camp but has slowly become more involved. He’s splitting first-team snaps with Rhett Ellison -- Engram is more the passing-down tight end -- and really shows up when the Giants run red-zone and two-minute drills. Engram’s speed and athleticism are obvious. He's adding a new element to the offense with his ability to separate from defenders after the catch. His body control has also been impressive. He can go up and get the ball. Engram's blocking (big question entering the draft) has been serviceable at training camp. Engram remains in line to play a significant role as they continue to line up their tight end all over the field.
Dalvin Tomlinson, DT, second round (No. 55 overall): The Alabama product started the summer low on the depth chart but has slowly worked his way into the mix for a starting spot. Tomlinson and Jay Bromley are the front runners to start next to Damon Harrison on the defensive line. Tomlinson has flashed more quickness and twitch than expected. And he’s strong. Center Weston Richburg has been impressed with that part of his game. Tomlinson had one day last week where he was constantly in the backfield. He also flashed in his first preseason game but needs to do a better job against the run. Tomlinson may have his work cut out to win the starting job, but he’s going to be part of the defensive line rotation regardless.
Davis Webb, QB, third round (No. 87 overall): When the Giants drafted Webb the plan was for him to spend this season as the third-string quarterback. Nothing has changed almost three weeks into training camp. Webb rarely receives reps during team drills at practice. Coach Ben McAdoo had to create an “opportunity period” for the young players (specifically Webb) to get him some live 7-on-7 work. When Webb gets opportunities he looks as if he knows what he’s doing and his physical skills are impressive. He’s more athletic than advertised and his arm is noticeably strong. He’s a rookie quarterback making a significant jump from an Air Raid offense to the NFL. This will be a redshirt season.
Wayne Gallman, RB, fourth round (No. 140): He has spent the summer fourth on the running back depth chart behind Paul Perkins, Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa. He’s long and skinny but runs hard. Gallman hasn’t stood out much at camp (for better or worse). He catches the ball adequately. Right now it appears he’s destined for a reserve role this season.
Avery Moss, DE, fifth round (No. 167): He has been among the most impressive rookies at camp. Moss has displayed a quick first step off the line of scrimmage and proven to be a force as a pass-rusher. Of course, he’s doing it mostly against second- and third-team offensive linemen. Still, the early returns are positive.
Adam Bisnowaty, sixth round (No. 200): He has spent the summer as the second-team right tackle. It has been an up-and-down adventure. Bisnowaty needs to add strength to compete with the more physical NFL defensive linemen. He hasn’t done enough to seriously threaten Bobby Hart as the starting right tackle. Bisnowaty appears destined for a backup lineman role this season.
