2. NY Giants Defensive Backs

The defensive backs include James Bradberry, Adoree’ Jackson, Logan Ryan, Jabrill Peppers, Xavier Mckinney, Julian Love, Rodarius Williams, Darnay Holmes, Josh Jackson, Keion Crossen, and Sam Beal.

This group is stacked and one of the best position groups the Giants have, and is among the NFL’s best secondaries.

Bradberry paired with Jackson is a scary duo. Also, a safety group with Peppers, Ryan, McKinney, Love, etc. is one of the best in the league. Pro Football Focus ranked the Giants secondary among the best in the NFL at 7, but it’s only going up from here with new additions this off season.

1. Wide Receivers

The wide receivers Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Kadarius Toney, John Ross, Dante Pettis, C.J. Board. This is the best position on the final roster. The Giants added Golladay and Ross in free agency, and drafted Toney with the 20th overall pick in this past year’s draft. This Giants are stacked again at this position, something they lacked last year.

Yesterday, head coach Joe Judge said, “What’s unique this year, obviously compared to previous years is you have the extra week. I think you’re going to see a lot more roster turnover than probably in previous years because there’s going to be a lot of players that have been claimed or will be claimed, that are almost going to be on short term tryouts, a lot of teams.”

“In terms of stressing that this is short term, it’s our job and responsibility to inform all the players all the time of that this is a production business. It’s a day-to-day business.”
