Any rational NY Giants fan knows this 2020 team isn’t going on any Super Bowl run; yet, it would be nice to groom a few stars. Here are the top five Giants with the best chance to have a breakout season.
If you were to sum up the biggest problem the NY Giants roster personnel has right now, it would without a doubt be that its lacking star power in a major way.
Ever since Dave Gettleman took over as GM he made sure to rid the team of its superstar talent and go with the culture and team approach; to say it hasn’t worked out would be being very nice.
Yet, there could be good things to come on the horizon as the NY Giants’ roster might not have any superstars outside of Saquon Barkley right now, but there are plenty of young players that could make major leaps in 2020 and finally give Big Blue a couple of difference makers.
While it may have taken Gettleman a year or two too long to realize this team needed to be completely rebuilt from the ground up, on his possible last legs as GM, he’s now finally starting to realize this team needed to be reassembled in a major way.
It’s true, free agency under ‘DG’ outside out Markus Golden has been a disaster so far – and that was really all James Betther’s doing.
What he did do with the slick usage of the rarely-used UFA tender to get Golden back at the more than affordable price of one year/$4M (although Kevin Abrams reportedly came up with the idea) he surely deserves some credit for it.
But, to be fair, although there is one highly-drafted player and a few mid-round draft picks that are no longer with the team for one reason or another.
Gettleman has been strong overall in the drafting department and has assembled the youngest team in the league that looks to have a group of young players that can really amount to something.
Outside of Saquon Barkley, there’s not a single player on the NY Giants you could even come close to considering a star and that’s a problem; most good teams have at least five star-level players/real difference makers.
The good news is out of the large runt of potentially talented youngsters, there’s a solid chance we get to see a few of those players develop into difference makers and playmakers in this 2020 rebuilding season.
Here are the top five NY Giants with a chance to have a breakout season and become an upper-echelon player in no particular order.
