As we get closer to this years draft it due time to look at it in it’s full scope. Let’s blueprint the New York Giants potential draft. Whilst they have some great young pieces there are still needs on both the offense and defense, although some less than others. We’re shooting for realism, let’s get into it!
The former Panthers cornerback is set to ink a 3 year/$45M deal with the Giants, that equals to about $15M AAV. Bradberry was drafted by Dave Gettleman, with the Panthers, in the 2nd round of the 2016 draft to replace Josh Norman, who departed for the Redskins earlier that spring. Bradberry additionally has a long, strong frame at 6’1 212 lbs. He’s spent a good chunk of his young career covering some of the leagues best receivers in the NFC South…
The NFL’s free agency period begins March 18 and tons of eyes will be turned on the NFL’s off-season proceedings in these unprecedented times due to coronavirus. Additionally, the New York Giants now have $77.8 million in cap space. With Big Blue set to be big spenders this year, combined with the history that their most recent successes this century have come from big signings in free agency in 2007, 2011 and 2016, let’s take a look at some candidates who could be on the squad in 2020.
This 6’1 201 lbs safety is a highly-coveted prospect for two main reasons. One, his size and two, the fact that the safety position is at a premium, besides himself and Xavier McKinney (who could get his own write-up in the near future), not a lot of impact players are coming out at this position in 2020. Delpit is next in the line of elite defensive backs that have come out of LSU, appropriately dubbed “Defensive Back University” or “DBU”, featuring stand outs in the NFL such as Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Jamal Adams and Donte Jackson. Grant Delpit could make a wonderfully big, fast and intense addition to Big Blue.
The New York Giants need a direction. They have young, potent pieces on both sides of the ball that can be harnessed into great players and eventually lead to quality wins. Dave Gettleman and the Maura’s knew this and brought in a new cast of characters on the coaching staff. Let’s assess the moves.
Saquon Barkley had a record-setting 2018 season, including becoming just the third rookie in history to eclipse 2000 yards from scrimmage. These historic performances had Giants fans and many others looking forward to what Barkley may pose in the 2019 campaign. So how did Barkley truly do this past season? Let’s find out!
At the time of the 2019 NFL Draft the `consensus feeling of Giants fans and NFL spectators was confusion, disappointment and dread with the selection of Daniel Jones at the 6th pick in the 1st round. This distaste trickled down to the rest of the draft, although most fans came to feel hope and potential for the new Giants.
New York Giants rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton has taken the NFL by storm this season, while still keeping it under the radar. The 5th round pick out of Auburn has logged good, consistent performances throughout the season but has recently exploded with a 10 reception, 121 yard, 2 touchdown game line against the Jets and a huge 5 reception, 154 yard game with 2 touchdowns with an average yard per catch of 30.8, Monday night versus the Eagles.
After a very ugly loss on Sunday night the Packers will look to get back on track against a struggling Giants team. The Giants have been dealing with injuries on both sides of the ball for a big part of the season. Most notably this week they will be without Golden Tate and Evan Engram. Even though there has been a bunch of injuries and the Giants have been losing, Daniel Jones has been a bright spot for this young team. Jones in his last 5 games has 14 TDs and only 2 INTs. Very impressive stretch for the rookie.
In the first half of this article we examined potential usurpers for Giants head coach Pat Shurmer based on how’d they fit and benefit Daniel Jones’s development as a quarterback. In this portion we’ll flip to the defensive side of the field, looking at possible candidates that would help the young Giants defense grow.
The rumblings of Pat Shurmer’s job in danger combined with the fact that his coaching style generally lacks style and philosophy leads many to wonder who the Giants next coach will be, if Shurmer is in fact fired. Let’s take an early look at some prospective options that may fit and improve some of the positional weaknesses or strengths on the roster.
Jets vs. Giants is always fun, right? This Sunday we have the quarter-annual Snoopy Bowl and this year’s installment has tons of interesting and fun matchups within the game to watch. There are also some fantasy implications to examine
On Monday, the New York Giants and their green counterparts the Jets agreed to a trade, sending DL Leonard Williams to Big Blue in exchange for 2020 3rd and 5th round picks. Now, at first glance this looks like another headscratcher by Gettleman seeing as the defensive line is one of the deeper groups on the roster combined with the fact Williams is an upcoming UFA. But although there may be more pressing needs I’m willing to be patient because I do see potential and good ole’ Dave does deserve a chance with how we’ve seen his draft picks play out thus far (TRUST THE PROCESS FOLKS). At the end of the day however, Williams is a member of the Giants and I want to examine what he adds.
Expectations for the Big Blue offense going into the season fluctuated. Optimistic Giants fans like yours truly saw a unit with potential whilst almost everyone else saw a unit that would overall be mediocre because of the quarterback situation. What was universally agreed on was that Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley would be forces in the game we all love, fantasy football, no matter the quarterback.
Daniel Jones came out for the New York Giants and won a game nobody thought he would. He came out and won the game with out Golden Tate, and Saquon Barkley, who was injured in in Sunday’s game with a right ankle injury. We do not know the severity of the injury just yet, Saquon says he won’t be out long, but he is undergoing an MRI today.
