New York Giants' roster power rankings: Rating the Giants, from 1-53, Week 4

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Here are this week's New York Giants' roster power rankings. Just like around the Big Blue View house in general, there are some significant alterations this week.

1. Eli Manning -- Anyone really want to argue? LW: 1.

2. Jason Pierre-Paul -- Back to the second slot. LW: 4

3. Victor Cruz -- LW: 2

4. Hakeem Nicks -- I'm not moving him down all that much after missing one week. The guy is too good. LW: 2

5. Andre Brown -- After two terrific weeks I feel like I have to put him here. He can't stay this high, can he? He started the season at No. 45. LW: 15

6. Michael Boley -- Three games, three picks. Lots of really good play. LW: 9

7. Antrel Rolle -- LW: 5

8. Kenny Phillips -- LW: 6

9. Will Beatty -- A huge move up the board for the starting left tackle this week. Played every snap in his first start since last season and had one of the best days a Giants' offensive lineman has had in a long time, getting a dominant +5.4 grade from Pro Football Focus. Welcome back, Will! LW: 26

10. Corey Webster -- Played much better against Carolina, and did it with a broken hand. LW: 14

11. Sean Locklear -- Gets props for moving from the left side to the right side and being part of one of the best offensive line performances the Giants have seen in a long while. LW: 16

12. Martellus Bennett -- Six more catches for Bennett. He actually moves down slightly this week, but only because I had to give other players their due. LW: 8

13. Lawrence Tynes -- The guy is 10-for-10 on field goals this season and made two kicks from beyond 45 yards against Carolina. He is hitting the ball as well or better than he ever has. LW: 24

14. Chris Snee -- LW: 13

15. Rocky Bernard -- Yes, Rocky Bernard. LW: 12

16. Linval Joseph -- LW: 11

17. Jayron Hosley -- A pick, two passes defensed and more pretty good play from the third-round pick. If he keeps playing like this will Prince Amukamara get the starting job? LW: 17

18. Justin Tuck -- Yes, the defensive captain is falling. His run defense is solid, but he has been non-existent in the pass rush. LW: 7

19. Henry Hynoski -- The fullback has been a big part of Andre Brown's success. LW: 23

20. Kevin Boothe -- LW: 21

21. David Baas -- LW: 20

22. Ramses Barden -- Best game of his career last week. I could move him higher, but it was one game. LW: 28

23. Ahmad Bradshaw -- Out of sight, out of mind. LW: 10

24. Osi Umenyiora -- Finally an impact play against Carolina with a sack. But, really not a good overall performance. LW: 19

25. Chase Blackburn -- Still the MLB. LW: 18

26. Prince Amukamara -- Played, and played pretty well for his first time out there this season. LW: 39

27. Steve Weatherford -- I don't know where else to put him. LW: 25

28. Zak DeOssie -- Same as Weatherford. LW: 27

29. Jacquian Williams -- Plays as many snaps on defense as Mathias Kiwanuka, and plays more on special teams. LW: 30

30. Mathias Kiwanuka -- I'm surprised he is down here, to be honest. I couldn't really find a reason to put him higher -- although I admit I wanted to. LW: 22

31. Reuben Randle -- Has done a very nice job handling punt return duties, He seems to swallow up the ball. LW: 29

32. Bear Pascoe -- LW: 33

33. James Brewer -- Played as an extra tight end and blocker in goal-line situations, and did well. LW: 50

34. David Wilson -- Still returning kickoffs, but still obviously not trusted in the running game. LW: 35

35. David Diehl -- Inactive, and unwanted by many Giants' fans, but I can't push him lower than this. LW: 31

36. Domenik Hixon -- LW: 32

37. David Carr -- Got to throw a pass. Yippee! LW: 46

38. Markus Kuhn -- LW: 37

39. Keith Rivers -- Better than this, but needs to play. LW: 34

40. Stevie Brown -- Only six snaps, but got an interception against Carolina. LW: 43

41. Spencer Paysinger -- LW: 42

42. Da'Rel Scott -- Got his first carries of the season against Carolina, and was back on kickoff returns as well. LW: 52

43. Adrian Tracy -- LW: 40

44. Will Hill -- LW: 41

45. Michael Coe -- Inactive with hamstring issues. LW: 36

46. Justin Tryon -- Got only six snaps. LW: 38

47. Marvin Austin -- Played, finally, but did not get on the stat sheet for anything other than being on the field. LW: 48

48. Jim Cordle -- LW: 44

49. Mark Herzlich -- I still think Herzlich could start at middle linebacker eventually this season. right now, though, he's a forgotten guy. LW: 45

50. Mitch Petrus -- Still near the bottom of the Giants' barrel. LW: 47

51. Jerrel Jernigan -- Active for the first time, but only because he had to be. Played four offensive snaps and one on special teams. LW: 53

52. Adrien Robinson -- Inactive again. LW: 49

53. Adewale Ojomo -- Gotta play, and the young man hasn't. LW: 49
