2. Pass-rusher Emmanuel Ogbah

Sticking with the theme of versatility, we have former Dolphins defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah, who, just like Gates, has played nearly every spot up front on defense throughout his career. Given how weak the aforementioned Giants' defensive line is, adding someone as talented and versatile as Ogbah could bring a huge boost to the defense as a whole.

Through 15 games with Miami in 2023, Ogbah racked up 20 combined tackles, 5.5 sacks, and 19 pressures while playing just 248 snaps. The Dolphins had Ogbah coming off the bench all season, yet he was still rather productive.

With New York, Ogbah would likely be given a chance to start and could play a big role as a pass-rusher next to Lawrence, Kayvon Thibodeaux, and Brian Burns. Ogbah has been very consistent as a pass-rusher throughout his career. This is exactly what the Giants need and for the right price, Ogbah would definitely be worth bringing in.
