3. FS Xavier McKinney

Much like Jackson, Xavier McKinney has brought some much needed stability to a position group that needed it and needed it badly. A freak ATV accident in 2022 makes this past season pretty much a wash when you look at the stats.

That's a shame considering how good his sophomore season was. In 2021, as he tallied 93 total tackles, five interceptions, 10 passes defended and even one touchdown. Hopes were sky high for McKinney to have an even bigger third year before the injury.

A head-turning fourth year could make him one of the more prized safeties on the market. He'll be 24 by the end of this upcoming season and he has already proven he can play at an elite level at such a young age. You have to think the front office makes sure McKinney doesn't go anywhere if he proves his sophomore season was no fluke. I'm not sure myself or other Giants fans could handle another Landon Collins' situation down the road.
