4. RB Devin Singletary

No free-agent acquisition in the NFL has shoes to fill quite as large as Devin Singletary in NY. While Giants' fans are still full of betrayal and shock that Saquon Barkley will be suiting up for the Eagles next season, the addition of Singletary is nothing to scoff at.

While not the quality of a player like Barkley, Singletary is coming off a tremendous season with the Houston Texans and has a history of playing efficient football for winning teams. With a connection to Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen from his time in Buffalo, Singletary is the latest to reconnect with his old coaching staff.

Despite his small stature, Singletary has a way of breaking tackles and using his speed to get outside and beat linebackers in the run game. Standing at 5-7, Singletary utilized his low center of gravity in Houston and truly caught his stride towards the end of the season. Rushing for over 63 yards in three of his last four games, Singletary proved to be a great security blanket for C.J. Stroud and even rushed for two touchdowns in that span.

As for his role with the Giants, it's impossible to expect Singletary to fulfill the role that Barkley played during his time with Big Blue. While the Giants will need all of their playmakers to step up in the absence of Barkley, Singletary can be a reliable resource for Daniel Jones. After rushing for 800+ yards, catching 30+ passes, and scoring 4+ touchdowns in each of the last two seasons, let's hope that Singletary can keep form as a Giant.
