It'll be interesting to see if he is able to make that roster for NY. I've noticed they like to carry big, blocking TEs.
They've used Bear Pascoe (6'5", 283) as their blocking TE the last few years, but he's not on the roster anymore. I saw him line up at TE & FB at times to be the lead blocker in the running game.
CC is consistent with his blocking. IMO, his biggest weakness at LSU was finishing blocks. Defensive players were often able to knock him off his base (then CC would generally start lunging & reaching), and then eventually shed/slip his block, but even then, they usually weren't a factor in the play. Minor weakness. It's asking a lot for a blocker to be consistently dominant throughout the play. So, even though he didn't always finish dominantly, he was still extremely effective at neutralizing his man.
Overall, I think he was a great blocking TE at LSU. I don't know if he has the raw power the Giants are looking for, but I hope he's able to stick on the roster. According to ESPN, the Giants have 4 TEs on the roster right now:
Brandon Myers - 6'3", 256
Adrien Robinson - 6'4", 264
Larry Donnell - 6'6", 269
Jamie Childers - 6'5", 230
