New York Giants minicamp: Biggest standouts from Day 1

The New York Giants commenced the final week of the offseason workout program Tuesday with the first practice of mandatory minicamp at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford.

Even though minicamp is essentially an extension of OTAs in the sense that there are no pads being worn or live contact permitted, the Giants still conduct full-team drills.

We put together a list of the biggest takeaways from the first minicamp practice, but now it's time to take a look at which players stood out the most.

The Giants will hold their final minicamp practice Wednesday, ending the offseason workout program before breaking for summer.

New York Giants minicamp: Biggest standouts from Day 1

WR Wan'Dale Robinson

The shift slot receiver enters a big season going into his third year in the NFL. He should have a pretty prominent role on the inside, especially with rookie Malik Nabers expected to command most of the attention on the outside.

Robinson was extremely active, catching five passes during team drills. This included a touchdown reception on a slant that ended in the Giants' wide receiver trio re-creating the iconic Spider-Man meme as a celebration.

CB Dru Phillips

The team's third-round pick from the 2024 NFL Draft, Phillips has been working as the nickel defender since arriving at the end of April this offseason. Phillips has worked with the second-team exclusively, and he made a big play during the first minicamp practice.

On a throw from Tommy DeVito that bounced off the hands of wide receiver Dennis Houston, Phillips came through with the interception. It's something he didn't do once throughout his collegiate career at Kentucky.

RB Tyrone Tracy Jr.

Another rookie from the 2024 draft class, Tracy reportedly "spent a good portion of 11-on-11 drills on Tuesday with the first team," according to Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com. That's a pretty significant development considering the running back competition behind Devin Singletary.

Tracy is known for converting from wide receiver to running back late in his collegiate career so the pass-catching chops are there. If he can prove to the Giants he's viable as a pass protector, Tracy could have the third-down role locked down going into the season.

QB Drew Lock

With Daniel Jones being held out of team drills until training camp, Lock has been running with the first-team offense. The former second-round pick has had his struggles this offseason, but he showed some improvement during the first minicamp practice.

According to Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic, Lock "completed 10 of 15 passes and looks to be sharpening his connection" with the wide receivers, specifically Wan'Dale Robinson.
