Offensive line: Andrew Thomas, Aaron Stinnie, John Michael-Schmitz, Jon Runyan Jr., Evan Neal, Matt Nelson, Josh Ezeudu, Austin Schlottman, Jermaine Eluemunor and Marcus McKethan

Surprisingly, the Giants opted not to select a single offensive lineman in this year's draft, leaving them with veterans across the board and a couple of young guys with potential. However, it's looking like this selection of guys is what's most likely to be the final group heading into the season.

Perhaps Schoen could give up on Marcus McKethan, but the fact that he has starting experience helps his odds over other guys currently on the depth chart. This current unit essentially leaves the Giants with one starter and backup at each spot. However, we could see Schoen potentially trimming this down by a player or two to make room for other positions.

Defensive line: Dexter Lawrence, D.J. Davidson, Jordan Phillips, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Jordon Riley

This is where things get a little unclear, as it's a little tough to tell whether or not a guy like Rakeem Nunez-Roches or even Jordon Riley could get cut. At this point in time, though, we believe this unit makes the most sense for the Giants. Not only does it put the best players on the field, but it keeps some versatility in the trenches.

The signing of UDFA Casey Rogers, a massive nose tackle from Oregon, could shake things up a bit. However, he'd really have to show out in training camp and the preseason for this to happen. Regardless, the Giants likely have their unit right here, with Dexter Lawrence of course leading things.
