Giants’ post-draft depth chart: What it looks like after “roster-building season”

New, comments

There will be some changes, but this is the bulk of the team that will head to training camp

New York Giants Training Camp

With the 2019 NFL Draft in the rear-view mirror, what do the offensive and defensive depth charts look like for the New York Giants? Here is an unofficial look, with the team’s 10 draft picks added.

A note: I did not try to “place” any of the picks where they may eventually end up — starters, second team, etc. I just added each player to the list at his position so you can see what the roster looks like in each spot.

It was apparent over the weekend, and is shown again by the offensive depth chart, that the Giants still need to find a veteran right tackle. An experienced guard for depth probably wouldn’t hurt, either.

Defensively, the draft leaves the Giants with youth and competition at cornerback, on the edge and along the defensive interior. It might have been nice to find a young free safety to learn from Antoine Bethea, but perhaps one or more of the young cornerbacks is a conversion candidate.

Every roster, no matter how good a team was the year before, will appear to have a hole or two somewhere. It just isn’t possible to get every player you want of plug every hole in one offseason.

With the main roster of what GM Dave Gettleman calls the “roster-building season” done, how does this look?
