Led by Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley, the NY Giants completely exceeded expectations in 2022. With first-year head coach Brian Daboll and first-year general manager Joe Schoen constructing the roster, the team finished the season with a 9-7-1 record and a playoff run.
While this Giants team fell to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round, they proved to have a roster with plenty of talent. Unfortunately, several players, whether it be due to injury, or just an overall lack of production, failed to play to the level that many expected them to. Here are five Giants who didnt live up to expectations in 2022:
5. OL Jon Feliciano
With the signing of veteran interior offensive lineman Jon Feliciano, the Giants hoped to add a consistent figure to the offensive line. At times, he appeared to be just that. But, he also struggled heavily at certain points throughout the season, which was disappointing to see. People expected more from Feliciano.
Feliciano finished his first season with the Giants posting a PFF offensive grade of 57.1 while taking the field in 971 total offensive snaps. He also allowed three sacks, while being called for six total penalties. With the addition of both Feliciano and veteran Mark Glowinski, the Giants looked to fortify their offensive line.
If the team looks to bring them both back next season, they could potentially pick up where they left off. Near the end of the season, the pair found their footing, and played a key role in the team’s success.
If the front office chooses to run it back with this group, they could be key to the offensive gameplan. However, there’s no question that Feliciano needs to be more consistent for Daboll and Co.
