The NY Giants are no strangers to people doubting them and more of the same will be on the way in 2024. After the G-Men went 6-11 last season, not many analysts think Brian Daboll and Co. have a chance to compete in the NFC East or push for a postseason spot.

This past April, New York took home the No. 6 overall pick, selecting Malik Nabers, after their brutal '23 showing. Looking ahead to the draft next spring, ESPN's Football Power Index is already predicting a rough season on the way for New York, with the FPI thinking a No. 6 selection will be on the way once again.

Should the Giants finish at 6-11 or worse next season and end up with the No. 6 overall selection, it will tell us that Daniel Jones will 100 percent be on the way out of East Rutherford. Jones is playing for his Big Blue career this season, with a lot of people assuming he'll be cut next winter.

The Giants were able to bring in some top talent this offseason, highlighted by Nabers and pass-rusher Brian Burns. Nabers, an LSU product, is expected to be a stud WR1 for the G-Men, something the team hasn't had in years.

As for Burns, he and Kayvon Thibodeaux should be a lethal pass-rushing duo in the NFL this season. They're easily two of the best young outside linebackers in the game and they'll be ready to be a nightmare for opposing linemen.

An improved offensive line that now features Jon Runyan Jr. and Jermaine Eluemunor should also help Big Blue, but will it be enough to help the Giants get back to the postseason? Again, the chances of that happening aren't high, as it could turn out to be another long season for Daboll and Co.
