With around four months to go until the start of the 2023 season, we are slowly starting to get a better feel of what the roster of the NY Giants is going to look like. A year ago a this point, many didn't have as high of hopes for the Giants, which allowed them to fly a bit under the radar and shock the entire NFL world in the 2022 season. Big Blue went 9-7-1, made the playoffs for the first time since the 2016 season and won a playoff game for the first time since winning their last Super Bowl.

While it's a great thing to have happen for the Giants and their fan base, the time for celebrating what happened in 2022 has to end and the improvements for 2023 began the second the season ended. Part of the improvements will be the training camp battles that will happen; and not just the fights between the offensive and defensive linemen.

Battles for positions and spots on the 53-man roster will be ongoing the moment training camp kicks off in July. Someone who might be a starter in 2022 may be riding the bench like Kenny Golladay did frequently. With that said, here's our early look at position battles for fans to keep an eye on:

4. The QB spots behind Daniel Jones

For the fans who still think the Giants need another starting quarterback, let me stop you right there. Daniel Jones is the starting quarterback for the New York Giants. The four-year, $160 million deal he signed back in March ended any discussion that he isn't the guy and not the QB1 of the Giants moving forward.

But as far as who gets to be Jones' backup; that's where the battle takes place. The backup quarterback for the Giants behind Jones is veteran Tyrod Taylor, who was used very briefly in the 2022 season, which was a good thing since Jones was healthy and productive. Taylor is heading into the final year of a two-year deal he signed back in March of 2022.

Behind Taylor is undrafted (UDFA) free agent signing Tommy DeVito from Illinois, who will certainly get a look over the summer. Since Jones will likely play very minimal in the preseason, both Taylor and DeVito will get a chance to show what they can do; DeVito especially since he's younger and costs a lot less. If he can impress enough, he could have a chance to move up the depth chart and be behind Jones. Joe Schoen could end up bringing in another QB for competition too.
