NY Giants offensive line

In: Andrew Thomas, Evan Neal, Tyre Phillips, John Michael Schmitz, Mark Glowinski, Ben Bredeson, Josh Ezeudu, Marcus McKethan, Matt Peart
Out: Shane Lemieux, Devery Hamilton, Jack Anderson, Wyatt Davis, Korey Cunningham

Andrew Thomas, Evan Neal, Mark Glowinski, John Michael Schmitz, Ben Bredeson and Joshua Ezeudu are all roster locks. Thomas looks better than ever, and he even threw Kayvon Thibodeaux to the ground in a viral training camp play last weekend. He was not included on the NFL's Top 100 list, which will put an added chip on his shoulder.

The main change from last week's update is the inclusion of Peart. Peart, the Giants 2020 third-round pick, appeared to be the future of the Giants right tackle position, but has been ineffective and injured in the early part of his career.

With Neal and Thomas ahead of him on the depth chart, Peart has become the Giants swing tackle, and performed admirably in training camp. With little tackle depth on the roster, Peart could also serve as the backup on both the left and right side.

NY Giants tight end

In: Darren Waller, Daniel Bellinger, Lawrence Cager Out: Tommy Sweeney

Big Blue had quite the scare recently when Darren Waller, who has been the best player on the Giants this summer, left a practice with an injury. It was later disclosed as a dislocated finger and Waller returned back to the field. Talk about one tough dude.

Daniel Bellinger and Lawrence Cager are roster locks. Tight end depth will be pivotal this fall, as the Giants are expected to use a lot of 12-personnel sets. Tommy Sweeney, the Ramsey, N.J. native, feels like the odd man out.
