New York Giants: Tight Ends To Consider In 2017 NFL Draft
The New York Giants will enter the 2017 NFL Draft with a need to improve at tight end. Who should the Giants be targeting at a position of need?
The New York Giants are preparing for an NFL Draft that will go a long way towards defining the trajectory of the organization. Every draft class holds promise and potential, but 2017 is a special year based on what New York was able to achieve.
As the Giants prepare to make yet another leap and go from postseason-caliber to NFL champions, one can’t help but point out the areas in which they must improve.
New York finished the 2016 NFL regular season with its highest win total since 2005. As well as securing an impressive 11-5 record, the Giants made the playoffs for the first time since 2011 by securing a Wild Card berth.
For as impressive as the season may have been, Jerry Reese will need to be just as good during the 2017 offseason as he was in 2016.
One could make a powerful case that the Giants’ greatest position of weakness entering the offseason is at tight end. New York’s tight ends combined for 82 receptions, 631 receiving yards, and three touchdowns.
As the Giants look for ways to improve at the tight end position, the best solution to their issues could be found through the 2017 NFL Draft.
