An early preview at potential needs for the New York Giants for the 2021 NFL Draft
The New York Giants Giants have done everything but stay quiet this offseason. The noise started when many analysts ripped on them for hiring a special teams coordinator as their head coach. However, Joe Judge has made his mark on the team early in training camp.
Not only does he have cornerbacks holding on to tennis balls so they don’t commit holding penalties, but he also has earned respect from his players after diving into a mud pit for a fumble drill.
The Giants continued to stay relevant by signing some solid free agents in Blake Martinez, James Bradberry, and Cam Fleming who might get the starting nod in place of Nate Solder.
They have also had some legal trouble with multiple players on the team. Kicker Aldrick Rosas was arrested on a hit-and-run charge.
Not only did they lose players because of the law, but also because of the recent pandemic. Last year’s left tackle, Nate Solder, was one of the few players to ‘opt-out’ on the Giants.
On paper, the Giants made some major improvements to a below-average offensive line. They also steadily improved a defense that had more holes than Swiss cheese (sorry for the overdone metaphor).
On the field, however, may be a different story. The Giants have a very grueling schedule. One that puts them against the pit bulls in the AFC North, and the perhaps the best division in the NFC in the NFC West.
The young players on the Giants should continue to develop if all goes to plan. But, the Giants still have some glaring holes on both sides of the field. Some of those could be addressed in this year’s draft.
