Can the Giants wait until Day 2 to draft a wide receiver?

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Teams have found value on the second day of the draft The New York Giants need to build their wide receiving corps, that much is clear to pretty much anyone who watched the team in 2019 or 2020. The Giants’ offense was one of the very worst in the NFL last yer, and their inconsistencies of the passing game played a major role in those struggles. The Giants’ receivers struggled with separation and drops, and big plays were too few and too far between. Conventional wisdom has it that the Giants should address their need at a premium...

Giants reportedly looking for new offensive line coach

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Dave DeGuglielmo reportedly not returning The New York Giants revolving door at offensive line coach is about to take another spin, according to a tweet from Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post.

Veteran Logan Ryan made a successful transition to safety and earned a three-year contract. Jabrill Peppers had, arguably, the best season of his career. Xavier McKinney showed promise once he recovered from his fractured foot. Julian Love is quality depth in a variety of roles, and could...

2021 NFL Draft prospect profile: Sage Surratt, WR, Wake Forest

2021 NFL Draft prospect profile: Sage Surratt, WR, Wake Forest

Adam Richins-USA TODAY Sports Could Surratt help fill out the Giants’ receiving corps? The 2021 wide receiver class has some big shoes to fill. Both the 2019 and 2020 receiver classes were both excellent, with remarkable talent at the top and great depth throughout. The New York Giants largely bypassed both of those receiver classes, but they likely can’t afford to do so again. Their offense — and passing offense in particular — was a liability which held the team back from winning the division and could continue to hold the team back if it isn’t...
