Giants QB Eli Manning has been praised as the team's starter under center by GM Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur all offseason. But who will be his backup this season is still up in the air.
The two candidates -- 2017 third-rounder Davis Webb and this year's fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta -- will be in heated competition when training camp kicks up at the end of July.
Though both players are gunning for the same position, Lauletta said they couldn't be any better friends.
"Me and Davis are good friends, we're the same age, he did four years in college and I did five," Lauletta told The Post's Mollie Walker. "He's kind of experienced a lot of what I have and [he's a] similar-round draft pick and just a similar situation."
Lauletta admits that he also goes to Webb when he has a question about the new playbook he has to learn for this season.
"I kind of lean on him for like 'Hey, how does this work? How does that work?' He's always helpful, he's a really good guy," Lauletta said.
There isn't much that Lauletta hasn't seen when it comes to the X's and O's. In his five years at Richmond, he had to work with four different offensive coordinators. Spending time with each coach and learning their system helped grow Lauletta's knowledge for the game. It was one of the reasons the Giants pulled the trigger on him in the fourth round.
Lauletta is continuing to learn with the Giants, and more specifically alongside Webb as they have participated in the team's offseason practices. The competition may be there on July 25 when all players report back to the Quest Diagnostics Training Facility for camp, but they're not looking at it that way.
"Everybody wants to make it some big competition, me and him competing, nobody looks at it like that," Lauletta said. "You do what you can, everybody wants to play. Everybody wants to be out there on Sundays, but the best guys are going to do it.
"We're in this together, we're a team. That's kind of the Giants way."
