The New York Giants will close out the organized team activities portion of their offseason workout program this week with four sessions beginning Monday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center.
The club will then move on to its three-day mandatory minicamp next Tuesday. After that, the team will not convene again until training camp begins in the final week of July.
Some players that have impressed in the first six sessions include the team's two top draft picks, cornerback Eli Apple and wide receiver Sterling Shepard, as well as wide receiver Geremy Davis and backup quarterback Ryan Nassib.
Davis, a sixth-round selection out of UConn in last year's draft, has shown much better field presence and hands this spring. He is currently fifth on the depth chart at wide receiver, but he's climbing fast.
"Geremy was nursing a leg early on, but he's bounced back quite nicely," head coach Ben McAdoo said last week. "He's a guy that is a big, physical guy we can rely on. He knows the offense very well and seems to be hitting his stride right now. He's very comfortable in the offense. He knows the system fairly well and he's doing a good job for us at this point."
Nassib in entering his fourth year as a Giant and will likely not be pursued by the club next March when he is eligible for unrestricted free agency. The Giants traded up for the former Syracuse star in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft as an insurance policy for Eli Manning.
The hope was that Nassib would never have to start a game for the Giants, a hope which thus far has come to fruition since Manning has become the league's most durable QB.
Nassib was as green as they come in his first season with the club, even being taken out of the quarterback rotation during camp and used as a defensive back and special teamer. A lot has changed since then.

The Giants currently have three quarterbacks in camp, including third-year player B.J. Daniels, but will likely carry just Manning and Nassib this season.
