The Giants' secondary depth will be tested by the Cowboys' passing game.

Due to the seamless integration of rookie cornerbacks Deonte Banks and Tre Hawkins into the New York Giants defense, veteran Adoree Jackson has played a new position.

Jackson, New York's top covering cornerback last season, has played more versus the slot receiver since training camp began in late July.

In the nationally televised season opener against Dallas on Sunday night, Jackson may play Texas wideout CeeDee Lamb.

It's not how many expected the Giants' spring cornerback rotation.

After drafting Banks out of Maryland in the first round, New York felt it had acquired a starter to play alongside Jackson, the team's top defensive back in 2022.

Two days later, the Giants drafted Old Dominion's Hawkins in the sixth round.

It wasn't. Hawkins has left an impression since the beginning.

“I had seen him with the threes and the twos, but when he did it with the one’s (starters), I don’t want to say it rung my radar,

it was one of those things where you knew he was about his business,” Jackson said of Hawkins.

With Banks performing well, defensive coordinator Wink Martindale can experiment with Jackson in the slot.
