2024 NFL Scouting Combine: Wrapping up the defensive line, edge, and linebacker workouts

2024 NFL Scouting Combine: Wrapping up the defensive line, edge, and linebacker workouts

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Who showed out on the first day at Indy? The first day of on-field workouts at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine is officially in the books. The front seven players opened the week of workouts, starting with the defensive tackles, followed by the edge defenders, and then finally the off-ball linebackers. The New York Giants might not be drafting any of these players in the first round, but we could well see one (or more) of them become Giants on the second or third days of the draft. Big men movin’ We have to talk about the elephant on the field in...

The NFL Scouting Combine is the event of the season and the NFL’s tent pole between There’s so much that gets done during this week that we never get to see. Things like medical exams, formal meetings between teams and prospects, and of course backchannel talks between teams. But what we do get to see are the on-field workouts, and they often bring us some of the most entertaining moments of the NFL calendar. The New York Giants could go in any number of ways over the first three...

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports NBC NFL analyst says Giants need to support the quarterback, not replace him INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Put NFL analyst Chris Simms firmly in the ‘build around Daniel Jones’ camp when it comes to the question of what the New York Giants should do at quarterback this offseason. In an exclusive chat with Big Blue View on Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine, Simms called Jones “problem 74 on the Giants” and said they need to help him, not cast him aside. “I am one that leans more toward let’s keep Daniel Jones and let’s build the...

Giants Reacts: Which position group do you want to watch at the Combine?

Giants Reacts: Which position group do you want to watch at the Combine?

Photo by CFP/ Who do you want to see work out? We say this every year, but the 2024 NFL Draft is going to be very consequential for the New York Giants. It’s certainly possible that the Giants’ roster is more competitive than it showed in 2023, but right now it’s about as highly regarded as it was back in 2021. The more negative view is that the Giants are riddle with holes and aren’t close to competitive. The flip side of that, however, is that the Giants could go a number of directions in the draft and improve their roster. So, with the 2024 NFL Scouting...

The New York Giants, 20th in the NFL in pressure percentage in 2023 despite being second in blitz rate, can use a significant infusion of pass rush help in 2024. Could they turn to a place that produced one of the greatest pass rushers in franchise history to find it? Javon Solomon is an under-sized edge defender from Troy, which produced Osi Umenyiora.

2024 NFL Draft prospect profile: Tyler Davis, DT, Clemson

Photo by John Byrum/Icon Sportswire via Can Davis overcome his limitations in the NFL? The New York Giants had an interesting problem when it came to rushing the passer in 2023. While they won their pass rushes at the 11th highest rate in the NFL, they had comparatively little to show for it. Their high win rate was due to a heavy reliance on the blitz, but the Giants struggled to finish their rushes before the ball came out. Their new defensive scheme will rely much more heavily on a four-man pass rush, which means their Front Seven defenders will need to be that much...

Players are arriving every day and going through the behind-the-scenes process that is so important for draft stock, but we never get to see on the outside.

Joe Schoen at the Combine on Tuesday. | Photo by Stacy Revere/ GM said it was simply something he had always wanted to experience, not a reflection on Brian Daboll I guess we can call it ‘Headset-Gate.’ Remember during the season when New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen spent a few games plugged into the headset monitoring sideline communication between head coach Brian Daboll and his assistant coaches?

New York Giants news for Wednesday Good morning, New York Giants fans! NFL free agency: ‘Value for Saquon really hasn’t changed’ -- Joe Schoen In recent weeks there has been a lot of chatter that the New York Giants might let running back Saquon Barkley test free agency, allowing the market to set his value.
