3. LB Azeez Ojulari
Next to fellow outside linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux, Azeez Ojulari is one of the Giants top pass-rushers and when healthy, he can have a forceful impact. However, Ojulari just can't seem to stay on the field and this was another problem for him in 2023. Ojulari played in only nine games, which no one was expecting.
He also only had 2.5 sacks on the season, with two of them coming in the season-finale vs. the Eagles. This has been a problem for Ojulari for a few years now: his inability to stay healthy and play consistent snaps. In 2022, Ojulari was limited, yet still managed to post 5.5 sacks. The year before, he finished with eight sacks, setting the Giants rookie record.
Everyone was hoping for the third-year pass-rusher to make a monster impact for Wink Martindale this season, but the opposite was the case. With the Giants and Daboll not being able to depend on him staying healthy, NY most definitely needs to add some pass-rush help this offseason. Going after a big name in free agency is high on fans' wishlist.
