16. Mike Glennon (Giants)

There’s a trend in this swath of mid-tier backups: Everyone is about on the same page, neither special enough to deserve No. 1 duties nor bad enough to be replaced. Glennon fits right in, with an 83.5 rating in 27 career starts as a safer but predictable fill-in.

New York Giants: TE Evan Engram

The debate for the New York Giants is between their 2017 first-round pick entering a fifth-year option season (tight end Evan Engram) and their 2018 second-rounder who doesn’t have an option year (guard Will Hernandez).

Assuming Engram keeps improving, it’s not a huge debate. Hernandez just hasn’t been good enough despite all of his talent, and it’s entirely possible he won’t start or even remain on the roster in 2021.

Engram hasn’t been consistently reliable either, but it’s important that young quarterback Daniel Jones has some time with such a skilled target who has still managed to average more than 600 yards per season four years into his career.
