Since players are not in pads, minicamps pretty much are geared towards showcasing wide receivers and cornerbacks. With that in mind here are the three stars from the Giants rookie camp which concluded Saturday afternoon.
1. WR D.J. Hall - The free agent from Alabama dropped one or two but made the best catches of the camp. He will contest for a spot at what might be the deepest area of the Giants roster.
2. CB Terrell Thomas - The second-round draft pick from USC stayed with his receivers and broke up a couple of passes.
3. WR Willie Idelette _ The first-year tryout player from Wake Forest caught the ball well and fielded punts cleanly.
Honorable mention: QB Willie Copeland - The southpaw's left arm must have been hanging down to his toes after taking every throw for most of the Saturday morning and all of the Saturday afternoon workouts.
That's because QB Andre Woodson (thigh) did not practice in the afternoon. Neither did WR Mario Manningham (hip flexor).
The Giants will sign a few of the tryout players and announce them on Monday. The rookies will be able to report fulltime at the end of the week.
