A few weeks ago during Giants minicamp, we profiled five dark horse players who turned heads. At the end of the day though, every football player knows that, while minicamp standouts are nice stories, the real competition starts in training camp.

Big Blue training camp starts in a little over two weeks. It's a 90-man competition for 53 spots, and more than a few veterans will be left behind if they don't put up a good showing.

Here are five guys who are on the hot seat for the Giants:

Say what you want about your opinion on the Giants trading away star WR Odell Beckham Jr. His former teammates miss him. 

"Just his presence," Sterling Shepard told The Post's Paul Schwartz, adding that there has been an adjustment period to get used to him not in the locker room. "He's a great guy, he's loved around this facility. Just his presence, I guess."

Beckham has always been one of a kind since entering the league, and it showed in his awe-inspiring play that was matched with an exuberant personality as well. Whether it was making his signature one-handed grabs like it was just another day on the gridiron, or dancing in around practice with players like Shepard and Saquon Barkley, Beckham was always keeping things light and fun.

After a tornado exerted severe damage on Dayton, Ohio, and the surrounding areas, Cody Latimer returned to his hometown. 

The Giants wideout left the team after Tuesday's practice and likely won't be on the field the rest of this week during OTAs as he provides aid to Dayton residents. Latimer was born and raised in the city and still has family that resides in the area. 

According to the Dayton Daily News, Latimer is one of several professional athletes giving back to the community. The former Jefferson High School standout helped provide meals for storm victims Wednesday through a partnership with a local pizzeria.

When Giants wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert walked to the podium during coaches availability on Wednesday, it was expected the slew of Odell Beckham Jr. questions were going to come his way. But with him now on the Browns, Tolbert wanted to talk about who he actually will be coaching in the new season.

"I'm going to say this about Odell, I don't want this to be an Odell Q/A," Tolbert said affirmatively. "Odell was a great player for us, with the Giants. We all love Odell, we respect him as a player and wish him nothing but the best with the Cleveland Browns."

For the Giants, though, it isn't as simple as replacing Beckham in the offense this season. He had over 1,000 yards receiving in four of the last five seasons, and was Eli Manning's favorite target when he was on the field.

The 2019 NFL Draft is over, and the Giants have made all of their picks to bring in prospects they believe can impact them for years to come.

Between the new rookies and veterans, here are some position battles to watch in the new year...

Eli Manning had a chance for some late-game magic, when he had 55 seconds to play, and all he had to do was get the Giants into field-goal range. Instead, he threw a game-sealing interception on an ill-advised pass over the middle.

But don't blame this 28-27 loss in Indianapolis on him.

After the news broke that Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. agreed to a five-year, $95 million mega extension, social erupted with congratuations for one of the league's brightest stars. 

First, it was fellow Giants wide receivers Sterling Shepard and Roger Lewis Jr. posting videos of the celebration in the locker room following practice. And, of course, the song playing in the background had to be "For The Love of Money" by The O'Jays.

Five Things for the Giants 00:00:31
SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano reveals the five most interesting things to watch for during this week's New York Giants minicamp.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | ArchiveNow that Odell Beckham Jr. is planning to attend the Giants' mandatory mini-camp, a major crisis has been averted.

But that doesn't make the three-day camp any less interesting.

As the Giants continue their quick rebuild from the ashes of last year's 3-13 mess, they still have a lot of questions to answer and pieces to fit in before they get to training camp this summer. This week will begin to add some clarity to their picture...
