Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Wednesday morning Giants headlines.

What is Giants' biggest positional need?

What is the Giants' biggest position of concern coming out of the 2015 NFL Draft? Veteran NFL writer Russell Baxter says it's linebacker. He calls it "an area in dire need of improvement."

While linebacker is a perennial area of frustration for Giants' fans, I would argue that the Giants need good health at linebacker in 2015, not better players. If Jon Beason and Devon Kennard are healthy, the should be OK there. The problem is what happens if either, or both, of them go down?

To me, the real area of concern is depth at cornerback behind Price Amukamara and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Trumaine McBride should be fine in the slot if he is healthy. Behind them, though, are only question marks.That is why pursuing Alfonzo Dennard, cut by the New England Patriotsis an intriguing idea.

Along this same line, Pat Traina of Bleacher Report has penned a position-by-position look at the Giants' roster.
