4. LB Darrian Beavers

With Jarrad Davis officially being done for the season with a knee injury, it seems as if it's time for Darrian Beavers or Micah McFadden to start alongside Bobby Okereke next season. While McFadden saw the field more due to Beavers' injury early into last season, we still believe that Beavers has more potential to be a game-changer.

McFadden was okay for a fifth-round rookie. However, his instincts in the run game and abilities in coverage were far from ideal. Beavers may not have played in the regular season, but with what we saw from him in the preseason, it certainly seems like he succeeds where McFadden fails.

We know it's risky to put so much weight on the shoulders of the sixth-round pick, but the Giants currently don't have many better options. While it's likely that we see Schoen add a veteran linebacker before the start of the season, who knows how well they will play.

For now, it seems like Beavers could be in for a big role on the Giants' defense. However, if he wants this to happen, he must show out in training camp. If he disappoints, it will easily be McFadden's job heading into their second season.
