How would the NY Giants offense look in 2020 if they could steal one offensive player from each of their NFC East rivals?
On paper, the NY Giants have one of the most talented offensive units in the NFL when healthy. The combination of Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Darius Slayton, and Sterling Shepard alone is as dynamic and explosive as any.
Add in the rising talent of Daniel Jones and an improved offensive line, and it gets even more exciting.
Even ESPN NFL reporter Bill Barnwell – who has been highly critical of GM Dave Gettleman -ranked the NY Giants’ skill-position group amongst the highest in the league.
The problem in recent years, however, has been injuries, bad coaching, unimaginative play-calling, and lack of consistency from the offensive line.
It’s tough to tell how this strange off-season will ultimately impact the Big Blue offense in 2020, but having a new head coach, offensive line coach, offensive coordinator, and second-year quarterback, it’s certainly not making it easier on the NY Giants offensive unit this season.
But, what if the NY Giants could steal one offensive player from each of their division rivals heading into 2020?
In this hypothetical scenario, Big Blue would have plenty of options to choose from, as the offensive firepower and talent in the NFC East is one of the strongest in the NFL.
There are obvious areas of need the Giants could address in this scenario, mainly on the offensive line and at receiver. It is safe to assume the quarterback and running back position is safe from being replaced as Dave Gettleman has spent two top-six picks on those spots in the last three drafts.
With that said, let’s take a look at who the G-Men should steal from each of their NFC East foes.
