2. NY Giants newcomers are making their presence felt

While Waller is going to receive a lot of attention, we can't forget about the other first-year Giants who are making an impact. One under-the-radar player for fans to keep an eye on would be safety Gervarrius Owens. The seventh-round pick may not be the biggest name, but he posted a pass deflection this week that led to a Tomon Fox interception.

Another rookie we're a big fan of would be speedster Jalin Hyatt. The former Tennessee standout caught a touchdown during the first day of OTAs, while he also got some work returning punts for the Giants. With his blazing wheels, there's a great chance for Hyatt to see significant time both on offense and special teams.

We can't forget about linebacker Bobby Okereke either. The $40 million 'backer could not be happier that he's with the Giants right now and he's looking like a force already. Okereke's muscles are bulging out of his jersey at all times. We don't envy opposing running backs and QBs who look up and see him flying their way. Okereke should be a stud for NY in '23 and beyond.
