An interesting and somewhat rambling look at Smalley and the history of Lafayette and pro football:

NB : Matt Smalley is third on Giants' depth chart at "slot" corner which is the "inside" DB which covers the slot receiver and tight ends. However it's not as good as it seems because the Giants may work their first pick Eli Apple into the lineup at that position to give him some experience playing in the NFL before moving him to the outside where he gets no help on coverages.

From a piece dated 6/9:

Aside from DRC, Jenkins and Apple, Trevin Wade, Leon McFadden, Matt Smalley and Tramin Jacobs are all expected to compete for playing time as well and reports from earlier in the offseason have said that the Giants may look to pick up a veteran to bolster the group as well; Leon Hall's name has been mentioned and he has visited the Giants as well.

Matt Smalley (#35) breaks up a pass intended for WR Roger Lewis (#82) at Giants minicamp.  It's the first of the highlights in this NFL video of Giants DBs:

An unamed Giant DB was beaten yesterday on a 50 yard completion  by Nassib to a WR off last year's practice squad. I hope it wasn't Matt. I read a lot about the Giants and don't see his name at all in the camp updates.I'd like to ask him what it's like to cover Beckham Jr.

From the unofficial depth chart below, Matt is in the mix at right corner.  Here's to his continued progress in the Giant exhibition v Dolphins on Friday night....http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2016/08/heres_the_giants_unofficial_defensespecial_teams_d.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

This is unfortunate...  Hopefully he will recover and someone else will pick him up.

According to Mike Joseph during interview of Draeland J., Matt is still in camp, maybe shoulder not as bad as first thought.  Great news!

The Giants have signed another d-back to take Matt's place, but as I understand it, they had not decided yet what course of action would be taken with Matt's shoulder. Does it need surgery or not? I was told the injury took place while Matt was defending Beckham. Figures.
