1. OT Evan Neal

Following an offseason in which he worked with NFL legends, cut weight, and was looking like a prime breakout candidate, Evan Neal could not have had a worse start to the season. Not only did he look slow getting out of his stance, but Neal's hands were all over the place, making it easy for opposing defenders to slip past him easily with their counters.

The duo of Glowinski and Neal on the right side of the offensive line has to be one of the worst in the NFL right now. Back to Raanan's report, Neal ranked 59th out of 60 qualifying tackles in pass block win rate with a percentage of 70.6 - which is just unbelievably terrible for the expectations he had coming out of college.

The Giants didn't need Neal to emerge as a superstar in Year 2, but he had to show progress. While it's only Week 1, it's not looking like Neal has improved much thus far. A lot of the issues he had last season were still existent against the Cowboys and it cost the Giants big time.
