The Giants have received quiet but strong contributions from undrafted rookie FB Henry Hynoski. The position was a bit of a concern in the preseason, but Hynoski has done a good job in the blue-collar role. His touches (two catches through three games) are likely to be kept to a minimum, but the coaches love what he has done as a blocker. Still, the Giants have played around with him as a receiver, sending him out on a wheel route against the Eagles in Week Three. At their heart, the Giants are still a running team, and though the passing game has opened up, even without a healthy receiving corps and no solid receiver at tight end, they still aim to pound the ball in key situations. And RB Brandon Jacobs said he loves playing with and running behind the rookie, who Jacobs says is borderline obsessed with technique and details. According to all reports, Hynoski has been among the more diligent studiers and is bent on not making the same mistake twice.
