1. Kenny Moore

This would be shifting focus to the slot if the Giants choose to address this need through free agency. Darnay Holmes had mostly held the role since he was drafted, but he lost the job to Flott this past season, who struggled mightily in coverage.

In addition to the Giants' outside cornerback problems over the years, they've also failed to find a suitable nickel. Enter Kenny Moore, an outstanding playmaker who would solve the Giants' slot cornerback problem. In 16 games with the Colts last year, Moore recorded 93 tackles, eight tackles for loss, six pass breakups and three interceptions, two taken back for touchdowns.

His coverage stats could've been better, as he allowed five touchdowns and a 73.8 completion percentage when targeted. He'd also bring solid availability, missing only 12 games since being drafted in 2018. He's 28 and has inside/outside versatility despite spending most of his time in the slot. Adding Moore to a Giants defense that's needed a playmaker in the slot for years would be something exciting and an option that should be explored.
