3. Inside linebacker

The Giants showcased the worst inside linebacker play in football last season. To remedy that, Schoen signed ex-Colt Bobby Okereke to a four-year, $40 million deal this offseason. Similar to McKinney at the safety position, Okereke's starting partner is yet to be determined.

Veteran Jarrad Davis, whom the Giants signed late last season, returns for 2023, and is the favorite to start alongside Okereke. Davis has 343 tackles in 68 career games, but has played for three different teams and in just 13 games over the course of the last three seasons. Well, 2022 fifth-round pick Micah McFadden was ranked 77th out of 81 inside linebackers by PFF in 2022.

On top of that, 2022 sixth-round pick Darrian Beavers likely would have started alongside Tae Crowder to begin last season, but he tore his ACL in the preseason. There is a lot of hype around Beavers, but it's hard to expect much from a player who is coming off an ACL tear and has never played in an NFL game. The potential surely is there, though.
