Since no one player has distinguished himself at TE thus far at the Giants' workouts, GM Jerry Reese has not named a frontrunner, only stating on WFAN on Monday that the position will be handled "by committee."

Reese said the following on WFAN on Monday:

Adrien Robinson has been thought of as the likely starter at tight end, but hasn't earned that distinction yet (Raanan, June 19).

While Robinson has worked with the first-team offense more often than not this Spring - and performed well - tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride is not ready to name him the starter:

"It's fully open right now to all five guys. Whoever can step in and play the role the best way, that is the way we need to go. We're not worried about who was drafted where, who was just signed in the offseason, who is a rookie. None of that matters."

When Jerry Reese told the media he drafted the "JPP of tight ends" during the 2012 NFL Draft, Giant fans were immediately excited. Two years later, those fans are still waiting for Adrien Robinson to show up.

The combination of injuries and a prolonged learning curve have held back Robinson's progress. The Giants, unfortunately, are short at TE these days so Robinson is being thrust into the fray of the teams' TE derby this summer. He's ready.

?It?s my third year, my weight?s down, we?ve got a new OC [Ben McAdoo], new tight ends coach [Kevin Gilbride Jr.]", Robinson said at the beginning of OTAs last Month. "Everything is fresh; it?s like a clean slate. I?m just ready to go.?

From Lou Musto of Giants Rush:

The New York Giants made a surprise move when they selected tight end Adrien Robinson with one of their two fourth-round picks in the 2012 NFL draft. Many had predicted he was a late-round pick and, perhaps, even an undrafted free agent at best.

The Giants scored big by signing up-and-coming TE Brandon Myers this past weekend and as Sam reported in the prior post, they may still be interested in drafting a TE this April. The variable in the Giants' strategy is, and has been, the potential of second-year TE Adrien Robinson, who GM Jerry Reese dubbed "the JPP of tight ends" last year after the draft.

Robinson came into the NFL very raw and got off to slow start, missing rookie minicamp in order to graduate and then spending most of his rookie season playing catch-up. Most fans and pundits have written Robinson off, but Reese has indicated the Giants are still sky-high on the former Cincinnati Bearcat...

First up at the podium this morning at the NFL Scouting Combine was Giants GM Jerry Reese, who fielded questions ranging from the team's priorities, to its approach in free agency, to in-house solutions.

Earlier this week, former Colts DE Dwight Freeney -- a native New Yorker who grew up a fan of Big Blue -- said it would be a dream to suit up for the Giants.

Veteran blogger and lifelong Giants season ticket holder Craig Santucci knows how pivotal fourth round draft picks can be for a team. This year the Giants had two of them: TE Adrien Robinson of Cincinnati and Auburn OL Brandon Mosely. He is leery about how Robinson will turn out, but Mosely - who was taken after Robinson - seems to be more of a refined product.

Giants GM Jerry Reese on Robinson: "We really think this guy has a huge up-side. He is a big, big man; long arms. He didn?t catch a lot of balls for them. But he is kind of a late bloomer who has really come on. And we think this guy is kind of a JPP of tight ends. We like these kind of people. We will get Mike Pope involved with this guy. We brought him in for one of the visits. We are excited about him. We think he can really come on and develop and be a terrific football player for us. So it is very exciting for us to get him."

With their first of two fourth rounds pick (127 overall), the Giants selected?Cincinnati?TE Adrien Robinson.

At 6-4, 265 lbs, Robinson gives Eli Manning another tall option in the red zone, to go with newly acquired Martellus Bennett and Rueben Randle. He ran a 4.58 forty, so he has solid speed for a big man. He was only a one year starter at Cincy, and is considered very raw. He has long arms, and although he is unpolished, could become a strong blocker under coach Mike Pope.
