2. Cornerback

The position group with the most question marks for the Giants entering 2024 is none other than their cornerback department. Deonte Banks is solidified as the team’s CB1 entering Year 2, and he flashed a ton during his rookie season. However, the picture after the former Maryland star is more than murky, with many of the defensive backs in competition with one another.

The Giants added former Kentucky star Dru Phillips to the team during the 2024 NFL Draft, and he figures to battle veteran Darnay Holmes for the slot cornerback position. Additionally, Nick McCloud and Cor’Dale Flott will be vying for the CB2 spot.

If that doesn’t workout, the Giants could look outside their team for some help in their secondary, but it’ll be pivotal for someone to step up. However, it’s obvious the group is weaker the most in the league at the moment, and there’s not much to be done to improve their standing - for now.

The way for the Giants’ cornerback room to improve is to have one or two players step up and play above the level they’ve played at their entire career thus far. That’s easier said than done, and it can certainly go the other way, but time will tell if New York can get the most out of the group in 2024.
