Giants, quarterback Leonard Williams has been impressed with defensive rookie Kayvon Thibodeau since the Giants first entered the training field.
“I like what I see so far,” Williams said of Thibodeau. “It’s the little things when we have a few guys on defense who give or give someone a revealing look, and if they need an offensive lineman or something, he is one of the first to run up there and give a look. I appreciate that kind of stuff from top picks because he knows he has a lot more to give to the team. Just because he was drafted highly doesn’t mean he can’t help.”
Williams said Thibodeau, No. 5 overall and a well-known college dropout, showed the humility that veterans love to see in rookies.
“In person, he’s a humble guy and willing to work, and like I said, he’s one of the first people to go there when we need to take a look and stuff like that,” Williams said. “I’m definitely impressed with these things.”
Williams is hoping to capitalize on Thibodeau putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
“It’s going to be great for me to play inside and play with guys like that that make the quarterback come up and if I play center and they do their job, I make them roll. to them and vice versa,” Williams said. “We feed on each other.”
