2. Who Gets First-Team Reps at Free Safety?
The free safety position was one of the weakest position groups on the underachieving 2015 Giants team. With an ineffective turnstile of veteran stopgap players, the Giants look to get younger and healthier at the position. With three young and unproven players returning from season-ending injuries in Nat Berhe, Bennett Jackson, and Mykkele Thompson, as well as the third-round selection of playmaking free safety Darian Thompson out of Boise State, the Giants seem to have an infusion of youth at the position.
However, with the youth comes the uncertainty. None of these four players has much, if any, starting experience at the professional level. And as of now, there is no clear frontrunner to win the starting job alongside Landon Collins.
Although it is a long way from being decided, whoever receives the most first-team reps at Mandatory Minicamp could be a strong indication of who the coaches believe is the favorite to win the job.
