Draft Scout News
09/11/14 - LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) remains unable to practice. Kennard, who said he was injured on his first play from scrimmage, was spotted in the locker room with a noticeable limp, so it's unlikely he'll play on Sunday after missing two straight days of practice.
09/11/14 - LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. Kennard said he was injured on his first defensive play from scrimmage in Monday's game. Kennard looked to be limping noticeably, but said he will re-evaluate where he is later in the week.
09/10/14 - LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) strained his hamstring. The severity of his injury was not known, nor was his status for the upcoming week of practice.
06/12/14 - With Jon Beason (foot) likely to be sidelined for the rest of spring - the Giants have one more OTA practice and then will hold their three-day minicamp next week - they worked rookie fifth-round draft pick Devon Kennard and veteran Jameel McClain at the middle linebacker spot.
For Kennard, the linebacker out of USC who has been focusing on the middle linebacker spot, this could be a golden opportunity.
So far so good for the rookie, according to coach Tom Coughlin, who said Kennard is also working on all of the special teams units.
"He's picked things up very well. He's very smart, very good on the board, done a good job on the field, (and) done very well on special teams. We're very excited about him."
05/11/14 - A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 5/174 -- Devon Kennard, LB, 6-3, 255, Southern California...Versatile linebacker who can play on the strong side or in the middle. Kennard started his collegiate career as a defensive end in a 3-4 but showed enough football acumen to encourage coaches to trust him with multiple roles, including that of a pass rusher. With the Giants still short on defensive ends, Kennard figures to contribute at that position in certain packages. - The Sports Xchange
