    ROOKIE RUEBEN RANDLE D***LES AT GIANTS' CAMP

    ROOKIE RUEBEN RANDLE D***LES AT GIANTS' CAMP

    "Rueben Randle heard there were two knocks on him, two main reasons why he
    slipped out of the first round of the NFL Draft and very nearly out of the
    second.


    Ive heard work ethic was an issue, and knees were the two main things,
    Randle said yesterday during the Giants rookie mini-camp. Im here trying to
    prove Im fine and work ethic is no issue.




    Randle dismissed any health concern, saying a bout with tendinitis in his
    knees as a sophomore at LSU is no longer a problem. As far as a
    less-than-desirable work ethic, well, Randle said judge him on what you see, not
    what you have heard.

    I guess its my demeanor, he said. Im not one of those quick-twitch kind
    of guys. Im a strider, so I can come off as being a little lazy.



    The Giants do not share the perception Randle is lazy, which is why they took
    him with the final pick in the second round. Randle made an extremely positive
    first impression. After the first practice of this camp, coach Tom Coughlin,
    though not wishing to single out any player after such a small sample, did
    admit, I was very impressed with Randle out on the field this morning.




    The highlight of the session was Randle, who is 6-foot-2, getting a step on
    third-round pick Jayron Hosley, a 5-foot-10 cornerback from Virginia Tech.
    Quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, who spent last season on and off the practice
    squad, hit Randle in stride and he made an over-the-shoulder catch deep
    downfield.




    Hes coming here and hes proving to everybody hes going to be the guy for
    us to go and get it, said Perrilloux, who like Randle played at LSU. Hes
    definitely polished. After this mini-camp Ill go to Eli [Manning] and tell him
    what to expect, what kind of guys we have. Hes definitely going to be a guy
    youll like throwing to.




    It was not the only eye-catching moment for Randle, whose production suffered
    this past season primarily because of LSUs struggles at quarterback. On the
    first passes thrown to Randle, cornerback Brandon Bing from Rutgers anticipated
    the throw and knocked the ball away. Next, Randle bobbled a pass out of bounds.
    After that, Randle caught everything thrown his way, including a leaping grab
    over San Diego rookie cornerback Al-Rilwan Adeyemi.




    In terms of going deep and going down the field he looked pretty good,
    offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said. We saw what we needed from him,
    which is go get the ball.




    * All seven Giants draft picks signed before or immediately after stepping on
    the field.




    Running back David Wilson, the first-round pick from Virginia Tech, signed a
    four-year deal (with a team option for a fifth year) for $6.68 million,
    including a signing bonus of $3.3 million.




    Wilson, as advertised, looked extremely quick.




    He looks like if hes got a hole hell hit it and hes got a chance to do
    some damage, Gilbride said.




    * Defensive tackle Markus Kuhn, the seventh-round pick from North Carolina
    State, did not participate in practice because of a non-football related leg
    laceration he suffered in the past week. ... The Giants signed eight undrafted
    free agents: WR David Douglas (Arizona), WR Julien Talley Massachusetts), FB Joe
    Martinek (Rutgers), G Stephen Goodin (Nebraska-Kearney). DE Adewale Ojomo
    (Miami), DE Matt Broha (Louisiana Tech), S Jojo Nicolas (Miami) and S Janzen
    Jackson (McNeese State).




    One player in on a tryout basis is S Will Hill of East Orange, N.J. Hill was
    suspended, then kicked off the team at Florida, left school a year early and
    spent last season in the Arena League.




    Another player in for a tryout is WR Limas Sweed, a 2008 second-round pick of
    the Steelers who never panned out because of injuries and too many dropped
    passes."

    It's good to see rookies stepping up. But remember this is the rookie mini-camp. We'll have a better idea about actual regular season contributions after training camp and pre-season. Hopefully some of these guys will prove to be "NFL ready."

    i know...if anything, our entire team just got infused with some serious talent...

    seems randle was a 1rst round talent but teams were worried he'd be lazy and that his knee issue from his sophomore year could come back, its why he dropped...

    but i dont see those issues when i watch him play. i think he's gonna make an impact, and real quick too. the qb in the rookie camp said hes gonna tell eli how randle is gonna be the kinda target qbs love to throw to...

    he is deceptively fast, quick in and out of his breaks, good over the middle, underneath and deep...eli is gonna make this kid look like a star imho

    I'll be honest, Randle was the one pick I didn't really care for.

    You can say anything you want about who he's looking good against and the stage he's doing it in, but one thing's for sure: This can't be a bad thing.
    We need our coaches to assign playing time based on something other than player salary.
