2. OG Ben Bredeson

Despite playing in just 11 games last season, Ben Bredeson was more than solid for the Giants considering that he was a fourth-round pick. However, in 2023, Bredeson has the chance to solidify his status as the starter on the playoff team. The options behind him may not be scary, but Bredeson still needs to prove that his solid year in '22 wasn't a fluke.

Through 322 pass-blocking snaps, Bredeson allowed just 11 pressures and zero sacks. Compared to how poorly the rest of the Giants' interior offensive line played last season, this is honestly pretty incredible. Despite this, Bredeson still has to prove he can be a consistent starter for a playoff team going into 2023.

Behind him are Josh Ezeudu and Shame Lemieux. While they haven't shown a whole lot during their time in the league, they could still turn into solid players who very well could start over Bredeson by the time the regular season starts.

There's a ton of hope for Bredeson to turn into a solid starter for the Giants. For some teams, this would be a minor accomplishment, but for the Giants, this would be a game-changer. The left guard spot has been a turnstile of players for years. Let's hope that's no longer the case moving forward.
