Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Lewis rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns last year with the Giants as part of the committee that replaced an injured Saquon Barkley.
James Bradberry and Adoree’ Jackson are ranked No. 10. The Giants are the only NFC East team on the list.
Since 2018, James Bradberry has forced a whopping 42 incompletions — the top figure in the NFL, per Pro Football Focus. Last season, he earned an overall PFF grade of 79.8, which tied for seventh among corners with Jalen Ramsey. Computer vision shows that on snaps where the front was unable to generate pressure, Bradberry still allowed just a 59.6 percent completion percentage, the second-lowest mark amongst corners in 2020. Overall passing data logically shows that an increase in pressure correlates with a decrease in completion percentage, but it also shows that effective coverage from defensive backs ahead of the pass can correlate with increased pressure. Bradberry’s production, combined with the addition of Adoree’ Jackson, should help the Giants more effectively blanket pass catchers before the snap. Between that and the additions made up front, New York should increase its pressure rate in 2021, which will in turn drive even more efficiency from the corners.
The Giants released McIntosh, their 2018 fifth-round pick, on Wednesday.
