Draft Scout Larry Donnell News
09/08/14 - TE Larry Donnell was the Giants' surprising leading receiver Monday, catching five passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. Donnell, a second-year player from Grambling State, caught just three passes last season while being used mainly on special teams. If he can continue to be a factor, it would take pressure off the wideouts and give Eli Manning a safe option over the middle. "We're going to gradually grow, get better and make some big plays in the future," Donnell said of his chemistry with Manning.
09/01/14 - TE Larry Donnell is listed on the Giants' depth chart as being the starter; however, head coach Tom Coughlin said he has not decided on who his tight end will be for the season opener.
06/18/14 - TE Larry Donnell was taken to a local hospital by ambulance due to a heat-related issue after the team concluded its Wednesday practice in temperatures that hit the low 80s. Donnell, 25 years old, is embroiled in a battle with fellow tight ends Adrien Robinson, Daniel Fells, Kellen Davis and Xavier Grimble for a roster spot.
08/20/13 - TE Larry Donnell spent his rookie season on the Giants practice squad, so it wasn't a surprise that he received an invitation to compete for a roster spot on the final 53-man roster this year.
What has been surprising, though, is the progress Donnell has made not just as a tight end, but also as a backup fullback.
"We'd like to see if Larry Donnell can make a contribution," Giants tight ends coach Mike Pope said earlier in training camp. "Certainly size and talent-wise, he has that, but he missed all the spring and minicamps because of a broken foot, so he's virtually just starting right now."
Donnell, who last week suffered a strained knee when he landed awkwardly in practice, further endeared himself to head coach Tom Coughlin by not only dressing for last week's preseason game against the Colts, a game in which Donnell was originally not supposed to play, but also by taking five snaps and doing well with them.
"I take my hat off to Larry Donnell," said head coach Tom Coughlin, who said he had feared the worse after Donnell landed awkwardly on his knee. "His attitude really more than anything else determined that he wanted to play and he did."
01/03/13 - TE Larry Donnell was signed to a contract for 2013 by the Giants.
