The New York Giants’ run continued at a dizzying pace Thursday morning, as the team swapped four places in their 16-man coaching staff.

The big news there is that the addition of Jefferson, a safety veteran entering his ninth season, is finally official. The move has been to be expected since the 30-year-old was cut off by the Baltimore Ravens, who spent three full seasons and part of season four with Wink Martindale in Baltimore.
Jefferson is – at least for now – part of the coaching team. It wouldn’t surprise anyone, though, if he was soon promoted to the 53-man roster. Or at least make a game day hike. Jefferson played 104 regular season games with 66 games.
White Davis is a former Ohio State guard and player I really loved as a potential Giant ahead of the 2021 draft. He was selected in the third round (ranked 86) by the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings recently let him go as new general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah cleared most of the team’s classroom from last season.
Davis, 6’4, 315 pounds, played only 28 specials during six games in 2021. He didn’t play any surprise attack.
In a 2021 draft profile for Davis, BBV’s Chris Pflum called him “arguably the best goalkeeper in the draft.”
This is Chris Davies’ presentation:
White Davis projects as a starting guard with the versatility of charts in the NFL. He has the ability to move to the left side if his future team needs to use him there, but staying in the right guard would allow for a quick transition to the NFL.
Davis is, for the most part, a “clean” prospect with all the attributes to be a reliable starter and step into the starting role almost immediately in the NFL and play in any blocking scheme. Even Davis’ weaknesses will likely improve with experience, particularly his slight tendency to lose track of defenders in chaotic plays. He already has the technique and playing power to get started in the NFL streak, and must adapt to the pace of the professional game quickly.
Coaches will likely fall in love with Davis’s competitive toughness over the course of the recruiting process. Davis is every time a losing keeper and it was not uncommon to see him finish a play with his leg on the floor. There have even been several occasions where Davis puts an exclamation point on the play by hopping on a cannonball that he tossed to the floor like a professional wrestler looking for the pin.
Davis’ late knee injury is likely to spark interest, both for his timetable for returning to the field and future prognosis. However, if those reports are optimistic, there are few concerns about Davis’ playing on the field.
Davis’ stock is probably limited by its positional value – that is, the value of the “ranger only” probability – but what you see is what you get from it as a potential. And what you get from Wyatt Davis is a good plug-and-play keeper.
Clearly, things didn’t work out in Minnesota. Perhaps the knee injury in Ohio had something to do with it. However, the 23-year-old remains a player with merit and an interesting possession for the giants.
Mondeo is a 6’4, 280-pound defensive end who has played in 26 games with two overs over the past two seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had two tackles and 16 tackles (six solos) in 2021. Wiley is a UTSA advanced defender who was relinquished by the Baltimore Ravens.
Mbaeteka appears to be the most interesting player to have been dropped from the coaching lineup. The 6’9, 320lb Nigerian offensive tackle had never played football until he was signed by the Giants. The 22-year-old is far from ready to play in the NFL games, but he remains an interesting athlete. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he returns to the coaching staff at some point.
