1. Will Hakeem Nicks
Be Healthy When The Season Opens? Victor Cruz
swears Nicks will be ready, and Nicks has also been adamant his broken foot will
heal in time. But, Ahmad
serve as examples that foot injuries are tricky. So, we shall
2. Can Cruz Do It Again?
After salsa-dancing his way into the hearts
of Giants fans, and catching and running his way into the team's record books,
what kind of follow-up season will Cruz have? The wide receiver spent the
offseason making what seemed like a gazillion appearances and writing a book.
Can he focus completely on playing football once camp starts?
3. What Can Marvin Austin Do?
The Giants drafted the big, talented
defensive tackle from North Carolina in the second round a season ago. But,
after spending last season in injured reserver with a torn pectoral muscle
Austin has not played in two years.
4. Who Will Be The Middle Linebacker? Chase
will be listed as No. 1 when camp starts, but Mark
and Keith Rivers
will be banging on the door trying to take some -- or all -- of the playing time
at that spot.
5. Will Will Beatty Be Healthy?
Beatty's eye is fine after he suffered
a detached retina. Beatty, though, did not practice during OTAs or mini-camp due
to a back injury suffered while working out. Offensive coordinator Kevin
Gilbride has expressed concern about his starting left tackle, so Beatty's
health will be a major focus in Albany.
6. Who Will Be The Third Wide Receiver?
We have talked about this at
great length. Your candidates are Ramses
7. Which Undrafted Free Agents Will Make The Team?
There are plenty of
candidates here. Safety Will Hill, safety/cornerback Janzen
, wide receiver Brandon
, running back Joe Martinek
and middle linebacker Jake Muasau
are the most likely possibilities.
8. Can The Giants Run The Ball Better?
They have first-round draft
choice David Wilson
and they have made some changes to the offensive line after their league-worst
rushing effort a season ago. Will it help?
9. Which Running Backs Make The Team?
Behind Ahmad Bradshaw and
Wilson, that is anybody's guess. Martinek, D.J. Ware
, Da'Rel Scott
and Andre Brown
likely in a dogfight for two spots. Your guess is as good as mine when it comes
to who will end up on the 53-man roster from that group.
10. What Will Martellus Bennett Do?
The Giants signed Bennett in hopes
that he would fill their tight end void this season. There are plenty of
doubters, so watching how Bennett progresses will be interesting."
