2. LB Bobby Okereke

Other than Darren Waller, a case can be made that Bobby Okereke was the prized offseason acquisition for Joe Schoen and the Giants. He was expected to be the anchor of the linebacker unit and lead alongside Dexter Lawrence whenever the defense took the field. Unfortunately, Okereke started slowly.

With coming to a new team and a new system, Okereke looked a little lost in the first couple of games in Wink Martindale's system. Because of Okereke's slow start, plenty of NY supporters were not happy with how things were going for the $40 million man. In the past few weeks, however, Okereke has upped his game.

He has looked way more comfortable navigating the defensive system and is becoming that anchor most fans expected. In the past two weeks, he has 20 combined tackles, two tackles for loss, three passes defended and an interception. He is looking every bit of a prized offseason signing. Along with McFadden, the Giants' linebackers are becoming the best feature this team has to offer.
