2. OT Matt Peart

Matt Peart has been a rather disappointing player throughout his career for the standards of a third-round pick. Now, after a relatively poor preseason, it very well could be Peart's final year in a Giants jersey. Peart was able to make his way onto the 53-man roster, but goodness, he looked beyond shotty vs. the Jets. A lot of people were calling for him to be cut after that.

Through three games and 95 pass-blocking snaps, Peart allowed two sacks and eight pressures, While most of these numbers came from the Giants' preseason finale against the Jets, Peart didn't look very good in the previous two games either. He may not have been as bad as a guy like Korey Cunningham, but Peart's expectations are much higher and he didn't even come close to meeting them.

With the opportunities Peart has had to show he can be a productive player, there's no way to not call him a disappointment. While historically, Peart has been an okay-ish backup tackle, his poor play from this preseason has us worried about what could happen if Evan Neal or Andrew Thomas get hurt. He can't be relied on for meaningful snaps in '23.
