There is no question the breakout star of Giants camp thus far has been WR Corey Washington, who has two TD receptions in the Giants' first two preseason games and is regularly beating the Giants' newly-revamped secondary in practice.
"He is a guy that came in as one of the smaller school guys, and wasn?t getting reps at first and then just exploded," CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie told reporters on Tuesday. "Even in practice he was making some big catches against the ones, twos and threes. It didn?t matter who was out there. He tends to find himself jumping over people, so he is definitely a gifted young man."
The 6'4" Washington's performance has quelled some of the fears the club has had over their depth at WR. With first round pick Odell Beckham, Jr. who just started practicing after missing over two months with a sore hamstring; and Mario Manningham, returning after two seasons in San Francisco, having a rough camp (dropping passes and simply looking rusty), Washington is filling the void and then some.
