3. Tight end

Quietly, the Giants have built up a good tight ends room. Much like the wide receivers room, Schoen has completely rebuilt the tight end group this offseason. Last year the tight end group consisted of Darren Waller, Daniel Bellinger, Tommy Sweeney, Chris Myarick, Lawrence Cager and Ryan Jones. This year, the group looks different but more importantly, it looks better.

While Schoen and Co. await the decision of Waller, they have been more than active this entire offseason. They signed blocking tight ends Jack Stoll and Chris Manhertz to the room. They are two tight ends known for their ability to help give an offensive line some help in pass pro and open up some holes in the run game, but are also sneaky athletes who can help as safety blankets in the receiving game.

After adding Stoll and Manhertz to the room Schoen wasn't done. He added Penn State tight end Theo Johnson in the fourth round of this Aprils' draft. Johnson adds another dynamic player to the room. He is a willing blocker, good route runner, big red-zone target, and he can be a mismatch nightmare for defenses.

Even with the potential retirement of Waller, Schoen has created a well-balanced group. It will be interesting to see how many tight ends the Giants end up keeping. If Waller does come back, the conversation of who to keep gets intriguing. Waller, Bellinger, and Johnson would be locks, but with the additions of Stoll and Manhertz, will the writing be on the wall for Cager?
