4. OL Jon Feliciano
While his return or departure is not set in stone just yet, we know fans wouldn’t mind seeing Jon Feliciano play for another team next season. Not only do the Giants have plenty of opportunities to make an improvement at his position, but Feliciano simply wasn’t good enough to warrant coming back.
Was Feliciano the worst center in the league? Certainly not, however, he wasn’t all that good and had moments where he really cost the Giants with his abysmal pass-blocking. Whether it be through the draft or free agency, the Giants have far too many opportunities to improve upon the position to just settle on Feliciano again. Schoen could bring former center Nick Gates back to play the position again and that would be enough of an upgrade, let alone other free agents/draft prospects.
In 15 games last season, Feliciano allowed 22 total pressures, three sacks, and was responsible for six different penalties. In addition to this, Feliciano earned a PFF pass blocking grade of 65.9, alongside a run blocking grade of 56.4. While he certainly had moments where he looked great in run blocking snaps, he was far too inconsistent and was more of a negative than positive.
Bringing back Feliciano wouldn’t necessarily be the end of the world depending on how free agency and the draft goes, but as things currently stand there are far too many opportunities to improve the position to just settle for a 31-year-old player who really struggled at times last season.
