#2 likeliest NY Giants player to make 2021 All-Pro Team: Kenny Golladay

Out of all of the explosive additions Dave Gettleman made this offseason, none register as much as a game-changing addition quite like Kenny Golladay. The former Detroit Lions wideout established himself as a dominant option for Matthew Stafford but with the former #1 pick on his way to Los Angeles to elevate the Rams higher than Jared Goff could, Golladay used free agency to find the best landing spot to thrive.

In choosing Daniel Jones and the Giants, the 2019 Pro Bowler helped transform Big Blue into one of the most explosive WR rooms in the league. The only thing perhaps precluding him from his first All-Pro inclusion is the sheer number of targets Jones has at his disposal with 2021 first-rounder Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shephard, Darius Slayton, and TEs Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph all in the mix for touches in 2021.

#1 likeliest NY Giants player to make 2021 All-Pro Team: Saquon Barkley

Who doesn’t love a comeback story?

After tearing his ACL in 2020, Saquon Barkley has the chance to return to the pinnacle of the NFL’s RB ranks in a pivotal season in the Big Apple. It’ll be make-or-break for Jones as the starting signal-caller, but Barkley will also have to prove he can still handle the lion’s share of carries in the backfield following a potentially debilitating injury for a young rusher.

Look for Barkley to come closest to reaching All-Pro status in 2021. The Penn State product remains the Giant with the highest ceiling on the roster, and he has the perfect narrative to help drive him towards an All-Pro appearance.
