3. Beef up the offensive line

There are never enough offensive linemen, which was proven last season by the New York Giants, whose o-line ranked 30th, just ahead of the Tennesee Titans and the New York Jets. The G-Men also suffered several injuries on the line and lacked depth in several areas. Due to the lack of pass block and overall protection, Giants quarterbacks Daniel Jones, Tyrod Taylor, and Tommy DeVito did not benefit from the depleted offensive line and suffered injuries. 

The Giants countered last season's poor performance on the offensive line by hiring new offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo from the Las Vegas Raiders. The G-Men also signed veterans Jon Runyan and Jermaine Eluemunor in free agency. The Giants' starting front currently consists of Andrew Thomas, Aaron Stinnie, John Michael Schmitz Jr., Jon Runyan, and Evan Neal, but there's still time to sign another offensive lineman. The Giants did not draft any offensive linemen this year, so adding one more player in free agency is not out of the realm of possibility.

One player the Giants should pursue is guard Greg Van Roten, who most recently played with the Raiders. The veteran is a Long Island native and played at Chaminade in high school, but his New York roots are not the only reason the Giants should sign him. Van Roten has an existing relationship with Bricillo and Eluemunor from their time together in Las Vegas. The 34-year-old OL would be an excellent fit for Big Blue and would provide tremendous experience to the team.
