31. New York Giants (finished 32)
What I said at the end of last season:
"It may surprise you to see the Giants here, but I honestly have no idea what they have going on for them going forward. Daniel Jones seems like he needs the Jared Goff treatment to make any sort of positive impact in the NFL and right now the Giants are going to have to run their offense through a running back behind a bad offensive line. Defensively, I don’t know what they have to brag about aside from way too many big defensive tackles. They aren’t going to be able to land Chase Young or Joe Burrow at 4 and I have a bad feeling that they are going to draft Derrick Brown based on how bad this front office has been since Jerry Reese was fired."
It is going to be tough sledding for the Giants, but they aren’t the worst team in the NFL anymore which is nice.
The biggest thing going for them is that they didn’t draft yet another defensive tackle and instead drafted Andrew Thomas who should be able to immediately start for the Giants at right tackle and then eventually move over to the left side to replace Nate Solder if he isn’t worth the cost anymore.
That gives the Giants three building blocks on the offensive line with Thomas, Kevin Zeitler and Will Hernandez with Matt Peart as an interesting option somewhere down the line.
These upgrades should give Saquon Barkley a chance to be a big factor and if he can rise to that elite status, then he can carry the likes of Daniel Jones to a successful season offensively. Still, I have very low expectations for the team as a whole.
