Giants' Bennett Jackson making transition to safety
by Shawn Krest |

Giants second-year cornerback Bennett Jackson is spending the offseason transitioning to safety. 

"At the end of the day, I’m a DB,’" Jackson said, per the New York Post. "I think my strengths are cover skills, I got good speed and I got good ball skills. The thing it’s gonna take for me to get out there and make an impact is, I just got to learn the defense and really just communicate the calls fluently."

"It is all in front of him," coach Tom Coughlin said. "We think he can cover. He has done a good job of getting us lined up and then we will see how he plays."

Flowers' college position coach thinks he can fill in for injured Beatty
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Things are moving really fast for Giants offensive lineman Ereck Flowers. The eighth overall pick in the draft, because of an injury to Will Beatty, might have inherited a huge workload this season, per

Art Kehoe, Flowers' offensive line coach at the University of Miami, thinks Flowers will be up to the task of protecting quarterback Eli Manning.

"I'm sure he raised his level up a notch or two, but I think he plays every week, I think he plays hard in practice," Kehoe said. "He's an unproven commodity at the next level, and he's a high draft pick, [the Giants] drafted him to be a fixer, so I'm sure he's going in there to do what he did in Miami — scrap his ass off every day in practice, and if you're supposed to be a badass the next weekend [against] your opponent, he's gonna be there and he's gonna bring everything he's got. That's what he does. He wants to know that there's a dude, and he has to take care of him, and he'll be up to the challenge.

Giants' 2013 first-round pick, Justin Pugh is also a top candidate to fill in for the injured Beatty.

Giants' Brett Jones sees immediate difference from CFL to NFL
by Jason Butt |

Giants rookie offensive lineman Brett Jones is learning firsthand about one of the major differences from his former Canadian Football League and his new National Football League. 

In the CFL, defensive players must line up one yard off of the line of scrimmage. For Jones, who helped the Calgary Stampeders win a Grey Cup championship, this meant having some time to prepare for crashing defensive linemen. 

In the NFL, it's quite different with defensive linemen lining up on the other side of the ball before a play starts. 

“The game comes to you a lot faster,” Jones told the Giants' official website. “So with the no yard in the NFL, the D-lineman is right on top of you. So you can’t have many wasted steps and you’ve got to be really efficient in your footwork. So just getting used to that and drilling it in the drills has definitely helped me so far, but again, I have a long way to go.” 

Jones was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman, which is one reason the Giants were willing to take a chance on him. Jones, 6-foot-2 and 315 pounds, was a center in the CFL but said he's cross-training at every position with the Giants right now. 

“Being a shorter guy I kind of already play with leverage,” Jones said. “But definitely these guys are a lot bigger than they were in the CFL and I’m looking forward to competing against those guys.”

Giants: OT Will Beatty undergoes successful surgery
by Marty Gitlin |

The Giants have reported that left tackle Will Beatty has undergone successful surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. His recovery time is expected to be about five months, which would allow him to return just before midseason.

The team's second-round pick in 2009 has played in 82 regular-season games with 63 starts. He played in every game for the third straight year in 2014. His consecutive start streak of 46 is destined to end this season.

Giants LT Will Beatty injures pectoral while lifting weights
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The Giants offensive line suffered a big blow when left tackle Will Beatty apparently injured his pectoral muscle while lifting weights, per Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo.

According to the report, Beatty was being evaluated Wednesday, and per ESPN sources, Beatty's pec was torn, which would require a surgery that will keep him out of action for 5-to-6 months. 

In Beatty's absence from the lineup, the Giants have a couple of candidates in Justin Pugh and first-round draft pick Ereck Flowers to fill the void.
