We have reached the top 20 in our ranking of the 91 players the New York Giants will bring to training camp. The group presented below, from 20-11, is filled with players who are critical to the success of the team in the upcoming season.

Nos. 20-11

20. RG Will Hernandez
19. LG Shane Lemieux
18. RT Matt Peart
17. PK Graham Gano
16. TE Evan Engram
15. CB Adoree’ Jackson
14. LT Andrew Thomas
13. S Xavier McKinney
12. WR Darius Slayton
11. WR Sterling Shepard

From 20-18, put offensive linemen Will Hernandez, Shane Lemieux and Matt Peart in any order you want. They are this high on the list because they are starting players expected to play every down on offense. Placekicker Graham Gano is at No. 17. That is high for a kicker, but points are at stake when Gano does his job, and he was exceptional last season. From 16-13, Engram, Jackson, Thomas and McKinney are all players with something to prove in 2021. At 12 and 11, Slayton and Shepard should be helped by the presence of additional talent around them.
