Kadarius Toney. Thibodeaux a little banged up
Daboll said “hopefully he’ll be good to go.” Sources have previously indicated that Thibodeaux’s undisclosed injury isn’t considered serious. And the rookie edge rusher did some light running on the side of Thursday’s ninth OTA practice.
Evan Neal doing a great job in mini camp
All eyes will be on Evan Neal entering this season as one of the Giants’ most exciting offseason acquisitions. After a few short weeks of practice, the rookie is already standing out. Neal’s comrade on the right side of the offensive line, Mark Glowinski, described him as a “dominant” player.
Mark Glowinski was asked what his first impression has been of rookie right tackle Evan Neal so far during this summer’s practices:
Just dominant. As long as he gets his hands on guys, that’s the end of the story. So just making sure that we put him in the right place; make sure that he is doing the right things. He has come along drastically every day, learning more and more. – Mark Glowinski on Evan Neal via Giants.com
Evan Neal was a dominant force during his collegiate playing career at Alabama. It should excite Giants fans to hear that their first-round draft pick is continuing his dominant ways in practice. It is also exciting to hear Mark Glowinski describe Neal’s development, explaining how he is learning and improving drastically with every day of practice.
Neal started all 13 games at left guard during his freshman year in 2019 before moving to right tackle in 2020. He was a starting member of the team that won the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship. Following the 2021 season, Neal announced that he would forgo his senior year and enter the 2022 NFL Draft.
