4. OG Kevin Dotson

The offensive line should be one of the biggest priorities for the New York Giants this offseason. The O-line is obviously the most critical positional need because of their lack of success in 2023 and because of how much the injuries to the quarterback position impacted the team this past season. The Giants also had five different players start at guard this past year due to injuries. The G-Men had three different signal-callers under center this past season, so there's no doubt they will look to upgrade at the position, especially with a new offensive line coach in 2024.

Kevin Dotson is a significant option that the Giants should pursue in free agency. The veteran guard makes sense for New York's new offensive line coach, Carmen Bricillo. The 27-year-old OL was traded from the Steelers to the Rams last season after spending the previous three seasons in Pittsburgh. He brings much experience to his next team, making 44 career starts on both sides of the formation at the guard position to become one of the league's best run blockers.

This past season, the Los Angeles Rams finished 11th in the NFL for rushing yards, five spots ahead of the Giants. Although the veteran allowed four sacks, he finished with an 85.2 overall grade from Pro Football Focus, the second-highest grade among guards in the league.
