  • Giants rookie report: DT Dalvin Tomlinson impresses in debut

    Excerpt: "The Giants' rookie class was on display for the first time in Friday's 20-12 loss to the Steelers in the preseason opener. Here's a review of the six draft picks and some of the undrafted free agents:

    TE Evan Engram
    Engram had a quiet debut after a strong showing in practice last week. The first-round pick had one catch for 11 yards that ended with Engram twisting precariously in the air. Engram played 23 snaps. He was the second tight end alongside Rhett Ellison for a few snaps with the first-team offense and he was the top tight end with the second-team offense in the second quarter. Engram's blocking didn't stand out, although he and right guard John Jerry collided on one running play that got blown up in the backfield. Engram lined up in the backfield, in-line and in the slot.

    DT Dalvin Tomlinson
    Tomlinson had the most impressive debut of the Giants' rookies. The second-round pick logged 27 snaps, mostly with the second-team defense. Tomlinson finished with four tackles and was constantly in the Pittsburgh backfield. He also drew a holding penalty." Read more...
