1. Colton McKivitz
While Colton McKivitz's current priorities lie in helping the San Francisco 49ers hoist a Lombardi Trophy next week, he could be on the move in the 2024 offseason. After struggling mightily to start the year, McKivitz has boosted his play and been a big part of Christian McCaffery's success in the latter half of the season.
Lining up opposite the league's best tackle, Trent Williams, McKivitz could slide in nicely across from Andrew Thomas and help solidify the right side of the offensive line. Heading into 2023, McKiviiz had become used to riding the bench and flirting with getting cut since getting drafted in 2020.
After sweating the 2023 NFL Draft and realizing he would be propped into No. 1 on the depth chart, McKivitz has taken the opportunity and run with it. McKivitz's mindset of being handed so much responsibility is incredible; here is what he had to say about the opportunity he had at the beginning of this season.
"For them not to take anyone and to put that full confidence in me as a starter is huge. The pressure's not off because you're now the starter. But it just gives that ability to work on the little things and not have that kind of little voice in the back that you may not be here tomorrow... It builds confidence that the front office and those guys have confidence in me to be the starter. It's my job not to lose it."- Colton McKivitz
With a full year of starting under his belt, McKivitz can slide in and immediately provide help for the New York Giants. Entering the final year of his contract and earning just $2 million, the Giants could use the extra help on an affordable deal. With a plethora of decisions to be made by Joe Schoen and Brian Daboll in the coming months, expect some significant changes to the Giants roster coming soon - especially up front.
