Excerpt: "Rookie camp opens on Friday, the day we eagerly get our first look at potential future Giants stars.

I'll be tweeting (@NotoriousOHM (https://twitter.com/NotoriousOHM)) and blogging from the first day of Giants rookie camp. In the meantime, here's some things to watch for on Friday and Saturday:

Nass appeal: Obviously Eli Manning (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5526/eli-manning) won't be there, but we will get a first glimpse at Ryan Nassib (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/15891/ryan-nassib).

Remember, the Giants did something rare in last month's draft. Not only did they trade up, but New York did so for a quarterback.

Yes, it will be his first professional baby steps and there's zero pressure on him since he is being groomed to back up Manning. But we still want to see what the kid has to offer.

Even though he won't be throwing to Hakeem Nicks (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/12586/hakeem-nicks) or Victor Cruz (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13553/victor-cruz), Nassib will have a lot of eyes on him.

Pugh debut: Besides Nassib, we'll be looking at that big guy protecting him -- Justin Pugh (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/15808/justin-pugh). Nassib's Syracuse buddy will make his Giants debut as well, and it will be interesting to see where the coaches line up their first-round pick. Will the versatile Pugh start off at right tackle?

If Pugh spends the majority of his rookie camp there, the Giants very well could be prepping their top pick to compete with David Diehl (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/4618/david-diehl) and James Brewer (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/14098/james-brewer) for the starting right tackle spot. Of course, it's a long, long way to go before training camp. But we'll get to see exactly how long -- or short -- those arms are on the field. Let's hope he doesn't get smothered by defensive linemen the way his boys piled on him (http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/giants/post/_/id/25004/pughs-draft-night-reaction-video) on draft night."

There's already, predictably too much hype on Nassib. Nearly every pick we've made but our last two will have more of an impact than him. Obviously a backup QB is important but this isn't the Jets ESPN, I don't want constant Nassib updates.

Great day for those young players. Eager to see them all, specially Herman. Hope he brings tons of mean streak back to the Oline.

I kind of like the hype. I was reading a pre-draft ESPN or SPORTSCENTER article about the probabilities of success of college quarterbacks, It stated a high probability of success for Geno Smith, Nassib and the Landry guy (can't remember his name) . Although the article states that it is truely a hit and miss concept to judge whether quarterbacks will be successful or not. it was statiing that the number of starts and completion percentage and whether the team was better since the start of the quarterback, were strong indications of a quarterback's success in the league.

I hear there will be a special "Nassib-Cam" installed so we can get non-stop Backup QB Action this season.

The problem is Easy Eli drives the media nuts because he is the most emotionally stoic person ever. That's why Eli's matter-of-fact statement of considering himself a top-5 QB in 2011 was so overblown into "hubris" by the media, because that was the first time Eli said anything that could be construed as something they could use...

So of course the media is going to gun for Nassib. They want SOMEONE to get blustery and put on a show for them...

+1.

I'm sure TC & Reese will not allow it to become a circus.

Nassib isn't supposed to have an immediate impact if we're lucky. He's the one guy we don't want to play. BUT, if he can get a year under his belt being mentored by Eli we may finally have a QB backup who can come into a game or games and win games.

The title of this thread drew me in...great marketing RF. However, I wasn't looking for a heated discussion on a 4TH RD QB. Is rookie camp in pads? If not we won't know much.
