With the 2023 NFL Draft slightly more than two weeks away, we have been discussing various scenarios, needs and possibilities for the New York Giants. Let’s add the current very unofficial depth charts on offense and defense to the mix and see if putting them down on virtual Internet paper makes things look any different.

  • The jumbled picture at center and left guard is apparent.
  • The reality that the Giants have several wide receivers returning from injury is clear.
  • The Giants are OK at running back behind Saquon Barkley, but it’s clear that there is opportunity for a Day 2 or Day 3 pick to come in and take a roster spot.
  • The same is true at tight end.
  • There is an obvious opportunity to draft and develop a young backup quarterback.

  • The need for more depth — and more play-makers — at cornerback and safety is clear.
  • There is a spot for an inside linebacker next to Bobby Okereke. I like Darrian Beavers, but there is no way to know the impact of his torn ACL.
  • There are openings on the defensive line and the edge where a rookie could come in and earn playing time.
