NEW YORK GIANTS: RB AT NO. 2

Not really much of a debate here. Saquon has been pretty much as advertised, too. It just hasn’t moved the needle. The 2020 season made it fairly evident how much his play mattered to the win column.

Valentine’s View: It’s always soooo hard for me to criticize the Barkley pick. Great player, great representative of the Giants franchise. Still, you can’t start a rebuild with a running back. You finish a team build with a running back.

Shaq Barrett is ready to "break the bank now" - ProFootballTalk

You can pretty much forget Barrett to the Giants. Here’s why:

“I’m most definitely looking forward to getting a long-term deal done,” Barrett told Adam Schein of SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio. (Barrett also appeared on The Dan Patrick Show.

I still think I got a lot left in the tank. I’m still getting better, actually. I’m still learning like just still learning like week in, week out. And there’s like, as you can see as the season progressed like . . . I ended the season playing the way that I wanted to play. And you can see that I did progress throughout the season and I’m still progressing.”

One of the interesting opinions in here is that another shortened or interrupted NFL offseason, which could be where we’re headed, will be problematic for a player like Andrew Thomas.
