Season Outlook Analysis

Offense
Position
Quarterbacks
C+
The Giants claim Eli can still play, but he has yet to prove that. They can only hope their 6th overall pick, Daniel Jones can be as good as the Giants think he will be.
Running Backs
A+
Running back is one of the only positions the Giants don't need to worry about. Barkley is an absolute stud, who they will rely on heavily again this year.
Protection & Blocking
C+
O line has always been as issue for New York. they didn't do much to improve the position this offseason.
Receiving
B-
When you trade away one of the best receivers in the league, your WR core is going to look a lot less pleasing for a QB. However, they did a semi decent job by replacing him with Golden Tate.

Skills Analysis Notes
The Giants have a couple of guys who can make big plays(Barkley and Tate), however they lost Odell, who is arguably the best player at creating big plays and one of the most skillful players in the NFL.
Defense

They traded away their best edge rusher in vernon, but did add an interior lineman in the draft.

Skills Analysis Notes
The D gave up so many big plays and points last season. With the changes they made, I don't see them having any major positive differences.

Hopefully Shurmur can figure it out with this group now that the media distraction of OBJ is gone. However, he didn't impress me last season with the in game adjustments that he would make

Expectations/ Outlook
They didn't make enough improvements to make me think that they would have a better record than last year. Towards the end of the year, the offense started to click, but the defense was bad all year. Saquon will carry this team to a couple of wins this year, but I fully expect them to be back in the top 10 come draft night.
