1. BJ Hill

Much like Love, BJ Hill has found plenty of success in his new home since leaving the Giants. The 2018 third-round pick from NC State played three seasons with the G-Men and was an absolute force in the trenches alongside Dexter Lawrence.

Hill is the prototypical run-stopping defensive tackle who makes his presence felt by filling gaps and making opposing running backs' lives miserable. Hill's 311-pound frame next to Lawrence's 342 pounds was a force to be reckoned with during their time together. The two North Carolina natives had a special bond on and off the field.

Since heading to Cincinnati in 2021, Hill has only continued to improve statistically and become a big asset for the Bengals team. Recording at least 50 tackles in all three seasons, Hill snagged his first two interceptions in 2023 to pair with 4.5 sacks.

While it always hurts to see players succeed elsewhere, it's clear that the Giants are able to develop in-house talent when drafting properly. For 2024, let's hope the Giants can get their hands on a couple more gems and keep the players dominating in NY for years to come.
