And the Giants' fifth-round pick out of Western Oregon is as smooth as you could expect a 6-6, 252-pounder to be. Boss runs greats routes and has shown very good hands thus far. He's obviously a long-strider but he seems to get up a pretty good head of steam once he gets into the open field.
However, Boss is very lanky and the Giants can only hope that he'll be able to bulk up and fill out some and also become a dependable blocker. Obviously New York already has a solid receiving tight end in Jeremy Shockey. What's going to get Boss (or Darcy Johnson or any of the other reserve TE hopefuls) on the field will be the ability to block.
While Boss' blocking résumé is still a blank slate, his potential to be a threat along side or in addition to Shockey should lead to him seeing plenty of playing time his rookie season.
In the next week or so, TGI will take a close-up look at each of Big Blue's draft picks and tell you exactly what we've seen and what's going on with the newest Giants.
Boss Sure to Catch On
