After a draft heavy on the defensive side, the Giants are looking much stronger. Focusing mainly on WR and CB depth, while adding a true EDGE rusher. However, they still have a few needs.
Surprisingly, the Giants didn’t draft a single linemen. This shows Joe Judge and Dave Gettleman trust in their current group. However, there are still a few options in free agency. There are a few names that come to mind that could fill this hole.
Schwartz, 31, has been consistently one of the best tackles in the league throughout his whole career. Drafted to Cleveland 37th overall in 2012, he spent four years there before signing to Kansas City. Schwartz was a key piece in the development of Patrick Mahomes and bringing the Chiefs to the super bowl, where they had a terrific run game. Signing Schwartz could be a bit expensive, but having the influence on the line can really make an impact.
The 32 year old is a vet presence the Giants are looking for. Part of Seattles super bowl run, Okung has bounced around the league since 2016. Okung could be a strong addition to the Giants line and would not be too expensive.
Austin Reiter is a bit younger, but still 29 years old. The center for the Chiefs in their super bowl appearances, Reiter struggled in the super bowl. However, he is a cheap addition and can bring depth to the position, which is exactly what the Giants are looking for.
The Giants snagged one of the top EDGE Rushers in the class in Azeez Ojulari, but they still could use some help. Getting pass rush depth will be the final key piece to the strong defense the Giants have Here are a few names in mind.
Beasley has struggled to live up to expectations since being drafted eighth overall, but he has a chance to turn his career around in New York. With a career 37.5 sacks, the Giants can land a sack master that will elevate their defense.
Another vet that can bring help to their strong defense is Alex Okafor. Okafor won a Super Bowl in Kansas City and is a great run stopper. He can also assist the Giants pass rush.
As a whole, the Giants are looking like a very complete team. Even if they still have a few holes they should be ready to fill them develop and then they are ready to go
