No matter how you look at it, the NY Giants have some serious work to do in the 2024 offseason. Whether it's addressing needs through the draft or bringing in players from the free agent market, Joe Schoen and Co. will have to be on their A-game to get this team back to the playoffs.

It's no secret the Giants have a bunch of holes to fill if this team wants to see the postseason, but it doesn't help that the team has more than 20 players hitting free agency this offseason. Hopefully, for some, we see them stay in the Meadowlands.

5. WR Isaiah Hodgins

Isaiah Hodgins will be a restricted free agent once this season concludes, so bringing him back will solely be up to how badly the Giants want him. After seeing this team play, they should want him back in a big way. He doesn't have stats that will blow you away, but in two seasons with the Giants, Hodgins has more than 50 catches, more than 550 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

If all these draft experts are correct and the Giants go with either Malik Nabers or Rome Odunze with the No. 6 pick, some may think throwing any sort of money at Hodgins is pointless. But, with Parris Campbell and Sterling Shepard seemingly on their way out, Hodgins is a perfect depth piece for a receivers room that's begging for playmakers.

At the very least, he's another big body you can put out there to run a goal-line fade and make a catch in traffic. There's no such thing as having too many options and the Giants can certainly use all that they can get.
