Giants | Battle brewing at nose tackle; Cofield ready for the challenge

Vinny DiTrani, of the Bergen Record, reports there is a battle brewing at nose tackle for the New York Giants. Rookie DT Barry Cofield is expected to vie with veteran DT Damane Duckett and DT Jonas Seawright for the starting job, even though nose tackle was not his main position in college. Cofield played very little nose tackle in college, spending most of his time as an end in a 3-4 setup. That translates more to the "three" or "off" tackle position in the 4-3. Cofield said Giants coaches have compared him favorably to DT Kendrick Clancy, last year's starter on the nose who fled to Arizona. "I don't want to just be a nose tackle who takes up blockers," Cofield said.
