The New York Football Giants have opened OTAs, and football is officially in the air again.

While this is the earliest stage of the fieldwork for the Giants, it is also the earliest stage of seeing how the depth chart looks for Big Blue.  While there are some prominent position battles we are all looking at, such as CB2 and how the Offensive line shakes out, one is flying a bit under the radar.  That is who will be the RB2 behind Devin Singletary.

While this might not seem as important as those other battles, Singletary likely won’t be getting the bell cow duties that Saquon Barkley was.

Let’s look at some of the names Giants Nation will be getting to know this season.

Behind Singletary, the Giants have Tyrone Tracy Jr., Eric Gray, Gary Brightwell, Dante Miller, and Jashaun Corbin.  Tracy and Gray are both backs that have been selected by the Giants in the 5th round the past 2 years.  Brightwell is a 6th-round pick from back in 2021.  Corbin and Miller are both UDFA’s brought in by the Giants, with Corbin being brought in back in 2022 and Miller a newcomer this season.

Outside of Tracy and Miller, these running backs have been with the Giants for the past couple of seasons but have yet to make a major impact. If I had to guess, the running back room would consist of Singletary, Tracy, Gray, and maybe Miller if he can make an impact.

Gray wasn’t horrible last year, but there is some excitement around Tracy, a former wide receiver who ended up leading the Big 10 in yards per carry at 6.3.  There is also talk of Tracy being a kick-return option for the Giants.  That is a position where Brightwell and Gray were less than impressive in the past, which is why I don’t see a world where they surpass some of these other guys.  It will be interesting to see if Miller can live up to his “Turbo” nickname and make some noise in the offseason program.  None of these guys are proven players in the NFL, which is why this position battle will be so exciting to watch.

Whatever the case, with Singletary firmly the RB1 for the G-Men, it will be fascinating to see which of these little-known players gets time in games this season.

It feels good to see the Giants back on the field again, even if it is just for OTAs.

With the season right around the corner, it will be fun to see how the Giants’ depth chart shakes out.

While Singletary will be the Giants starter, he won’t get all the carries, so who will be the Giants RB2?
