Murray-USA TODAY SportsEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The first of two rookie mini-camp practices for the New York Giants is in the books. Here are a few notes from Friday’s practice.Daniel Jones first dayJones hit some throws, missed some others and generally looked like he had an idea what he was doing on his first full day as an NFL player. He threw at least one short pass much too hard early in practice, but seemed to settle down. There weren’t any interceptions, and no embarrassingly memorable snafus. He threw one really nice deep post to Darius Slayton — that was dropped.“He did a good Deandre Baker Jersey Boys ,” Shurmur said. “It’s a lot for a quarterback coming into an NFL system. I thought he did a good job today.“You don’t really want to evaluate the quarterback on the first day because they’re getting used to the receivers. The second day things start to smooth out a little bit.”More practice notesSlayton, the team’s fifth-round pick, dropped at least four passes from Jones. He did, however, make a couple of contested catches late in practice. Shurmur said of the drops “that’s why you practice. There’s a lot to get used to. ... I thought he finished the day pretty well.”Former Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey might be a player to watch. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Dungey is listed as a quarterback/tight end on the mini-camp roster Infant Deandre Baker Jersey , and could eventually be in line for a look in a Taysom Hill type role. Shurmur said Dungey is “one of those guys we sort of had our eye on throughout the draft.” The coach added that Dungey is “a good football player” and “usually there’s a place on the field for guys that are good football players. We’ll just keep working with him and see what happens.”Name of the weekend? That would belong to Freedom Akinmoladun, a tryout linebacker from Nebraska.Corey Ballentine updateAsked about the sixth-round pick who is recovering after suffering a gunshot wound in the glute when his friend and teammate Dwane Simmons was murdered, Shurmur reminded that Ballentine “was the victim of a crime.”“He’s a great young man,” Shurmur said. “It’s very unfortunate. He was the victim of a crime. That could happen to any of us. We’re here for him. He’s going through the vigils and the funerals and the things he has to go through.”Shurmur said he is “hopeful” Ballentine will return when the full team meets again a week from Monday. He said he wants Ballentine to get “full closure.” As the Giants’ 2018 season slid down the drain, there were a lot of people clamoring to see if quarterback Kyle Lauletta could offer the organization some hope for the future.Lauletta was the No. 3 quarterback behind Eli Manning and Alex Tanney for most of the season, but got into one game and went 0-for-5 to throw some cold water on the notion that he was the team’s starter in waiting. The Giants made it fairly clear that they believe someone else is the heir to Manning when they drafted Daniel Jones sixth overall this offseason and Tanney’s continued presence on the roster means the chances are good that Lauletta will be left off the 53-man roster.Lauletta had knee surgery in the offseason and that’s not helping a bid to change that outlook Deandre Baker Jersey Draft , although the 2018 fourth-round pick said on Tuesday that he remains confident in what he can do on the field.“All I can do right now is control me and get my knee back and work hard,” Lauletta said, via NJ.com. “I know the player I can be. I’ve just got to get to work and reach my full potential, and when I get an opportunity on the field, show them what I can do.”Developing Jones figures to be a focal point for the Giants this summer, but Lauletta should get playing time in the preseason if he’s healthy and a good showing there should help his chances of landing a roster spot even if it isn’t with the Giants.
