What would the Giants depth chart look like if the season started today?

New, comments

Well, let’s make a projection and find out

NFL: New York Giants at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

There is currently no such thing as a New York Giants depth chart. To give you a picture of how the offseason has thus far changed the 2018 roster, though, here is a projection of what one might look like.

Please don’t get hung up on first team, second team, third team. In several instances, I just plugged players into spots to simply try to give you a representation of what the roster as whole looks like. Where the strengths and weaknesses reside. Let’s not spend time worrying about who I have listed as the starting right guard or SAM linebacker. This is just an exercise in showing how the roster has changed, what still needs to be done, and how players along the front seven might be utilized in a 3-4 defense.

One thing not reflected. I fully expect Dalvin Tomlinson to see time as a 3-4 DE and Olivier Vernon to play some stand-up outside linebacker. I didn’t want to show that until we hear from the Giants that those things will actually happen.
