The New York Giants have placed rookie offensive lineman Marcus McKethan on injured reserve due to a knee injury

The New York Giants placed rookie offensive lineman Marcus McKethan on injured reserve Saturday, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

McKethan, a fifth-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft out of North Carolina, suffered an ACL injury.

While he was expected to compete for a roster spot this season, McKethan will now have to focus on recovery and rehab, and wait to make his on-field impact next season.

Kayvon Thibodeaux can’t wait for the pads to go on at practice

New York Giants rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux is looking forward to showing off his pass-rushing moves in a more realistic scenario

The New York Giants landed two of the best overall prospects in the 2022 NFL draft with their pair of top-10 picks, and one of them can’t wait for full-pad practices.

Kayvon Thibodeaux, the No. 5 overall pick in this year’s draft, is excited for the chance to show off his arsenal of pass-rushing moves in a more realistic training camp scenario, per John Fennelly of Giants Wire:

“I’m very excited. There are a lot of things as a pass rusher, as a defensive guy, you aren’t able to do without pads. The offense has the baggy jerseys you can just pull on them. Now it’ll be more of a fair game. I’ll be able to use all the moves I’ve been working on.”

NFL Letdown Games for Every Team

What are the potential letdown games for every NFL team? They’re the battles that should be a problem.

What games are the ones each NFL team has to look out for? It’s a LONG season with plenty of lulls, so which games are set up to be a letdown moment for every team?

Predicting each outcome takes into account location, scheduling fatigue, matchup intensity, and much more. These are the games – including the sandwich battles between two giant opponents – that each team should probably win, but might have issues.

2022 NFL Schedules

Giants sign pair of picks from 2022 NFL draft class

The New York Giants have signed two members of their 2022 NFL draft class to rookie contracts

The New York Giants have signed two members of their class from the 2022 NFL draft, as wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson and safety Dane Belton both signed their rookie deals Monday.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported the news, which the team confirmed later in the day.

Robinson, a second-round pick out of Kentucky, gives the Giants another undersized-but-explosive weapon for Daniel Jones and the offense. Belton, a fourth-rounder out of Iowa, adds depth and youth to a secondary in need of replacing some experience, following the departure of veteran cornerback James Bradberry.

With the signings, the Giants now have their entire 2022 draft class under contract before training camp.

Why Giants fans should be excited about Wan’Dale Robinson

Breaking down what Kentucky wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson brings to the New York Giants

After trading down multiple times at the top of the second round, the New York Giants spent the No. 43 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft on yet another undersized-but-explosive pass-catcher.

Much like Kadarius Toney, their first-round pick in 2021, Kentucky’s Wan’Dale Robinson brings an electrifying skill set to the New York offense. What Robinson lacks in size, he makes up for with elite quickness and big-play ability, both after the catch and when stretching opposing defenses vertically.

Toney is a versatile offensive weapon who can line up anywhere on the field, making him a frustrating challenge for defensive coordinators. Expect a creative play-caller like new Giants head coach Brian Daboll to find plenty of unique ways to get the ball in Robinson’s hands, whether he’s lined up wide or in the backfield.

While there were rumors earlier in the offseason that Toney might be on the trade block, the Giants would be wise to deploy the rare playmaking ability that both he and Robinson bring to the table. If New York can get improved play from quarterback Daniel Jones this season, having another dynamic pass-catcher like Robinson to challenge defenses in various ways should help spark this offense in 2022.

Kayvon Thibodeaux’s charity continues to pay it forward

New York Giants first-round pick Kayvon Thibodeaux keeps making a big impact off the field

New York Giants first-round pick Kayvon Thibodeaux is sure to make a huge impact on the field this season and beyond, but he’s making a bigger difference off the field.

Thibodeaux’s charity, The Jream Foundation, will be providing opportunities for underprivileged kids to attend Core Prep Academy Football, a program that partners with schools to provide educational curriculum that is focused on helping student-athletes (per ESPN’s Adam Schefter).

The No. 5 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft, Thibodeaux was one of the most dominant pass rushers in college football over the past few years, making tons of big plays while at Oregon.

As he makes the jump to the pros, he’s making sure his impact goes far beyond the gridiron.

See what Kayvon Thibodeaux paid to get the Giants’ No. 5 jersey

New York Giants first-round pick Kayvon Thibodeaux made a hefty donation to a good cause in return for the right to wear the No. 5 jersey

New York Giants first-round pick Kayvon Thibodeaux will wear the same number in the pros that he did in college, thanks to a financial arrangement for a good cause.

The No. 5 jersey was previously worn by Giants kicker Graham Gano, but in return for a $50,000 donation to the charity of his choice, Gano is giving it up to his team’s top draft selection.

Thibodeaux, the No. 5 overall selection in the 2022 NFL draft, will get to keep the number he wore throughout his dominant college career at Oregon, matching his draft slot.

Traditionally and statistically, Day 3 of the NFL Draft is a total wasteland. You’re far, far better packaging your picks to move up into the top three rounds of a future draft – the odds of getting a consistently decent starter are shockingly small.

But every team thinks it can make magic out of the Day 3 mess of prospects, and it’s worth a shot to dumb-luck into a possible mainstay. What are the remaining needs that need to be filled for each team? Here are every team’s picks so far with the possibilities of who they could get.

Of course this all blows up once the trades start flying, but the idea is to give a rough snapshot of what each team might be able to do.
