It's no secret that this year's draft was one of the best for the NY Giants in recent memory. General manager Joe Schoen and Co. picked up some nice pieces for Big Blue both to make an immediate impact and to add some depth to the roster.

With the exceptions of Deonte Banks and John Michael Schmitz, no one in this draft class is expected to start right out of the gate, or even be the No. 2 guy. However, that could change quickly if some veteran Giants don't bring their best throughout the season. Let's take a look at who might be on the hot seat for the G-Men, and which youngsters (not just '23 draft picks) could take their spots:

3. CB Darnay Holmes

Right now, it feels like it's up in the air if Darnay Holmes will still on the roster once Week 1 arrives. There's been plenty of speculation that he could potentially be a cap casualty at some point in the near future. There would be several guys ready to step up if general manager Joe Schoen decides to part ways with him.

While rookie Tre Hawkins has made a name for himself early on at OTAs, a player to keep an eye on moving forward would definitely be Cor'Dale Flott. Flott joined the G-Men last season and ended up appearing in 11 games, recording six starts. Flott surprised plenty of people with his play and there's no question the staff is high on his potential.

Last campaign for defensive coordinator Wink Martindale and head coach Brian Daboll, the 6-1 Flott posted 26 total tackles, two pass deflections and one forced fumble. There are high expectations for Flott in '23 and we have a feeling he'll live to things. He was thrown right into the mix last year and proved his worth. More of the same will be on the way this season.
