The NY Giants dramatically improved the roster this offseason, adding Kenny Golladay, Adoree’ Jackson, and others, but who has the best chance of making All-Pro in 2021?
Last season was not one where the NY Giants had several representatives on the All-Pro team following the conclusion of a one-of-a-kind 2020 season.
Teams with 6-10 records don’t typically result in such.
Can things be different in 2021?
Giants general manager Dave Gettleman spent big this offseason hoping for it to pay dividends in the form of a postseason push for the easiest division title to win in the NFL, the NFC East. In addition to his free agency expenditures, the Giants front office was shrewd in strategically fortifying their positions of need…for the most part.
The OL could perhaps use another veteran or two to improve from being a bottom-tier protection unit. That said, the other aspects of the offensive side of the ball vastly improved. The point prevention unit was already the driving force behind falling a game short of the NFC East crown last season.
A massive return from injury, free-agent additions, and another year to adjust to life under Joe Judge could result in an All-Pro representative from Big Blue for the first time since 2018.
Let’s take a look at which NY Giants have the best chance of being named All-Pro in 2021:
#5 likeliest NY Giants player to make 2021 All-Pro Team: James Bradberry
James Bradberry is the featured corner in a loaded CB room that added a stud defender in third-round pick out of UCF Aaron Robinson.
While he was the featured back in last year’s NY Giants secondary, his comparatively low interception total (3) compared to the top pass poachers in the league make it a difficult case for him to reach All-Pro status.
