Ranking 5 NY Giants’ chances of making All-Pro in 2021
#4 likeliest NY Giants player to make 2021 All-Pro Team: Blake Martinez
Blake Martinez dominated in his time in college and during his first four years in the pros with the Green Bay Packers.
As a 2015 All Pac-12 First-Teamer, he put his name into the conversation of one day landing a starting job in the NFL, and by year 2 he was already the league leader in tackles.
That said, Martinez had the least amount of solo tackles since his rookie year during his first season with Big Blue. The presence of Azeez Ojulari could cut into his numbers even further.
So while Martinez may be due for another step forward within the defense, his individual success may not propel him to All-Pro status in 2021.
#3 likeliest NY Giants player to make 2021 All-Pro Team: Leonard Williams
Another former First Team All-Pac 12 member in the front seven, Leonard Williams enters his second full season in with the NY Giants, and third since being acquired in a midseason trade with the Jets, back in 2019.
Williams was a terror to opposing offensive lines in 2020, producing 11.5 sacks and registering the third-highest tackle total of his career.
If he can continue to get comfortable under Patrick Graham’s defensive schemes, perhaps he can not only return to the Pro Bowl but also achieve All-Pro status. He has the best chance of any member of the defense.
