    Giants' Jarron Jones among undrafted rookies in most favorable situation

    The New York Giants have repeatedly been praised and lauded for their job in the aftermath of the 2017 NFL Draft.

And while Carter is trying to practice tough love with his 24-year-old understudy, he also thinks Beckham has been unfairly criticized early in his career. In an interview with Gary Meyers of the New York Daily News, Carter said some of the game’s best players have skipped voluntary workouts. “With Odell, they go to extremes because it is him,” Carter explained. “In 108 days, he will be ready to play against the Dallas Cowboys.
