2019 will mark an interesting offseason for the New York Giants. For starters, we’re watching the end of an era in New York, as the G-Men likely find the heir apparent to quarterback Eli Manning in the NFL Draft.
They select at No. 6 overall and are probably the first quarterback-needy team selecting in Round 1.
That’s good. And it’s also good the Giants have an offensive stud in running back Saquon Barkley, who just earned Offensive Rookie of the Year honors for his efforts in 2018.
Still, there are some massive question marks here. That offensive line stinks, and signing free-agent offensive tackle Nate Solder didn’t work out to desired effect. New York’s defense needs both pass-rushing help and upgrades at various points within the secondary.
But the Giants still have more than a few pieces around which to build. And they won’t be forced to show Manning the door, either, even if they take a quarterback with their first pick this April.
