Giants Video Station. Patriots: 7 Things We Learned - Sport

What did we learn from the New York Giants’ 17-12 loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday night? Let’s take a look.Donte Deayon is making the rosterWhen you make two excellent interceptions on a team with a coach like Pat Shurmur who values balls skills Christopher Slayton NFL Draft , like Deayon did Thursday, you pretty much guarantee yourself a spot on the roster. Deayon should rest easy this weekend when roster cuts are made.Shurmur admitted after the game that Deayon “helped himself” with the performance.Pat Shurmur and Bill Belichick like to torture usBoth head coaches actually challenged calls in this meaningless, slow-moving, final preseason game. Belichick actually challenged an incomplete pass with 9:04 left in the fourth quarter. C’mon, Bill! What were you thinking?The helmet rule is still a messThe new “lowering the head to initiate contact” rule wasn’t a major issue in the Giants first three preseason games. It was Thursday, as the Giants were called for three penalties. I’m honestly not sure what the defenders on two of them, Mark Herzlich and Chris Lewis-Harris, could have done differently.“When we went through this helmet thing it was said ‘these are the certain plays that we want out of our game’ and those are pretty obvious,” Shurmur said. “Some of the plays we’re getting flags ... those aren’t part of the game I don’t know if we have a game.”B.W. Webb and Curtis Riley are startersWebb, the slot corner, and Riley, a free safety, were held out of Thursday’s game. That’s a sure indication they have won the jobs they were in competition for.James Bettcher doesn’t like breakdownsWhen New England quarterback Danny Etling went 86 yards for a touchdown on a read option, Bettcher went ballistic on the sideline. Never mind that there were four minutes left in a meaningless game and most of the Giants defenders on the field won’t be on the 53-man roster. The defensive coordinator didn’t like what he saw Christopher Slayton Buffalo Bills Jersey , and everybody knew it.Kalif Raymond couldn’t catch a breakThe wide receiver/return man had a 24-yard punt return wiped out by a penalty on Calvin Munson. He caught only one pass in seven targets, but was open on a couple of deep balls where he and Kyle Lauletta couldn’t connect. With any luck, Raymond’s stat line could have been an impressive one.Fourth preseason games are torturousEspecially when there are a combined 15 penalties called. Plus, the two challenges. However long this game took, it took too long. Kansas State’s Dalton Risner isn’t supposed to be an offensive tackle in the NFL. The modern NFL’s archetype would say that he’s too short and too light to play on the edge against NFL defenders. But don’t tell Risner that, it probably won’t end well for you. While it’s true that Risner falls outside of the prototypical NFL thresholds for a highly-drafted offensive tackle, and his Combine measurements will likely have many projecting a move to guard. But even so, that hasn’t stopped him from being one of the top tackles in his draft class. Risner has spent the last three years lining up at right tackle in the SEC and he emerged from the Senior Bowl as one of the big winners against a talented defensive roster.As it so happens, the New York Giants are in fairly desperate need of an upgrade at right tackle, and Risner could be just the man for the job. But can he convince Dave Gettleman overlook the tale of the tape and draft against his own tendencies? MeasurablesHeight: 6-foot-4 ?inchesWeight: 308 poundsProsPowerful tackle. Good leverage, technique, and natural strength let him punch above his weight class. Good hand usage. Locks on and consistently trying to control Mean, angry, nasty blocker. Constantly looking for work Color Rush Christopher Slayton Jersey , blocks through the whistle, and finishes plays. Long arms and big hands.Consistently able to re-anchor against power. Rides speed rushers around the pocket.Doesn’t panic and give up inside counters.Good awareness of stunts, twists, and blitzes. Rarely caught off-guard.Could be projected to any position on the offensive line.ConsHas some lower-body stiffness. Kick-slide could use some work.Occasionally lets his hips and pads rise, negating some of his power and natural leverage.Height and weight might fall below some team’s thresholds. Will be 24 at the start of his rookie season, could be older than some teams would prefer.Prospect Video(Risner is the right tackle, number 71)What They’re Saying - Kyle Crabbs (The Draft Network Scouting Report) Does He Fit The Giants?The Giants absolutely need an upgrade at right tackle, and if they don’t find one in free agency, Dalton Risner should be high on their list of prospects. Dave Gettleman has historically favored offensive tackles with exceptional size, length, and strength in the past, and Risner doesn’t stand out at 6’4”, 308. Those numbers will, in all likelihood Youth Christopher Slayton Jersey , project him as a guard for a number of teams. That might not even be a waste of a move, as he has experience playing inside and has all the strength, leverage, and hand usage needed to hold up against NFL defensive tackles.But in practice, there is no reason why he shouldn’t be considered as a tackle in the NFL. Risner’s footwork needs polishing, as he has a false-step in his pass sets and uses more of a shuffle than a kick-slide. But he still manages to be effective against players like Montez Sweat or Charles Omenihu thanks to his hand usage, play strength, and leverage. Trying to bull-rush Risner is a fool’s errand and he excels when it comes time to open holes in the running game. He should be able to play in both man-gap and zone blocking schemes at the next level. And despite his flawed footwork, he doesn’t panic when faced with speed and is generally able to usher defenders around the pocket. But what stands out most about Risner is the sheer “nasty” with which he plays. He is an angry bulldog of a blocker who is constantly looking to finish plays and let defenders know he is in the game. The Giants have one player like that in Will Hernandez, and adding a second is not a terrible idea.
