New York Giants
Even the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants have holes to fill this offseason, and it's not going to be easy. The Giants are tight on cap space, which forced them to restructure Eli Manning's contract and release Brandon Jacobs to get under the cap. Expect more cap clearing moves to be made because they still need to make room to extend and re-sign a few players. I expect the Giants to look to the Draft to fill some holes for another championship run.
One player the Giants MUST consider in the Draft is Coby Fleener of Stanford. He's expected to be picked in the late-first to early-second round, so it wouldn't be a reach and it's a position of need. The Giants lost both Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum to torn ACL's in the Super Bowl, leaving them with only Bear Pascoe as of now. Ballard and Beckum are likely to start the season inactive, so this move gives them a potential starter and future Pro Bowler at the position.
Fleener has everything you look for ...
