The NY Giants completed their mandatory minicamp last week, finishing with a cancelled final day. The next time the team is together in a mandatory setting will be at the end of July, with training camp set to begin July 26.

So, after the first glimpse of the 2022 Giants, let’s take a look at three of the biggest concerns which have arisen (or still exist) for this team heading into 2022. The hope is that things can get cleared up as soon as possible.

3. NY Giants Cornerback depth chart

Heading into minicamp, perhaps the most uncertain positional group on the roster was cornerback. The long-winded James Bradberry saga finally came to a close at the beginning of May, with the star cornerback being released by the Giants and eventually signing with the Eagles. Understandably, many questions have arisen surrounding which current Giant would step up to fill the Bradberry-sized hole in the secondary, or if indeed the solution is not yet on the roster.

Unfortunately, it would appear the picture is no clearer after minicamp. Cornerbacks Rodarius Williams, Darnay Holmes and Darren Evans didn’t practice at all during the camp, with Aaron Robinson also donning a red jersey, being a limited participant.

It would appear, at least on paper, that the current roster has a number of slot cornerbacks, but may be missing a certified CB2 behind Adoree Jackson. Unfortunately, it is extremely important that the cornerbacks in a Wink Martindale defense (at least what he showed in Baltimore) are able to handle being left on an island – something the likes of second-year Robinson and rookie Cordale Flott have yet to have the chance to prove they are capable of achieving at the NFL level.

The moves – or lack thereof – Schoen and the Giants make at the position in the coming months will shed light on the plan for the unit in 2022. That doesn’t change the fact, however, that coming out of minicamp the cornerback position should be one of the largest concerns for the organization and the fans.
