Giants Rookie QB QB Ryan Nassib Shows Poise In First Workouts
The fourth-round draft pick from Syracuse came up horribly short on a long go pattern during Friday's start to the two-day minicamp for rookies and free agents. He later lacked touch on a pass over the middle and then threw an interception.
First-day jitters is the best way to describe it but they were gone Saturday when Nassib showed why the Giants' made a trade to move up six spots to grab a potential successor to Eli Manning.
Nassib hit a long pass to Brandon Collins, made a couple of other perfect throws and showed good command in running an offense that he's still learning.
''Yeah. I definitely felt a little bit more comfortable as these practices have been going on,'' Nassib said Saturday after the morning workout. ''I'm starting to get the terminology down. I'm sure it's nowhere near as much as what the whole playbook is, but I'm getting the. baby steps really and I'm just glad I got this extra time and going with the rookie minicamp to actually study it.''
Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride was impressed how well Nassib did on Friday in the huddle.
''First day out he did a pretty good job of mastering just the nomenclature, the terminology,'' Gilbride said. ''He didn't seem overly confused by what we're trying to do. There's so much thinking going on. It's hard to execute at a level that I'm sure we're going to see down the road, but really for the first day, he did pretty good.''
