Giants are in a good place going forward
With the 2021 NFL Draft now behind us, Bleacher Report has released their post-draft power rankings.
When it comes to the Giants, they moved up from 23 to 22.
New York was aggressive in the draft as well. Trading down from No. 11 to No. 20 netted Big Blue an extra first-rounder in 2022. New York’s first two picks (Florida wide receiver Kadarius Toney and Georgia edge-rusher Azeez Ojulari) both have the potential to make an impact as rookies.
On paper, the Giants have a roster capable of hanging with the Cowboys and Washington in the NFC East, especially with the return of a healthy Saquon Barkley in the backfield. If quarterback Daniel Jones can take a step forward in his third season, the Giants could be in the mix for a wild-card berth, if not the NFC East title.
If Jones struggles in 2021, though, New York might wind up using that extra first-rounder in 2022 as ammunition in the search for a new quarterback.
The Giants are definitely now set to draft another quarterback next year if Jones flops this year.
The Giants only have one glaring question heading into the upcoming season and that of course is their offensive line. Every NFL team typically has at least one concern every year, so they aren’t in an obscure position.
