Build through the draft and fill needs via free agency. That’s the formula for success in the NFL. For the Giants to be successful, they must act swiftly if they are going to fill some needs with quality people.
WFAN’s Paul Dottino believes the Giants will strike quickly and sign two free agents on offense.
Now who those two players will be are still unknown. You have to think they would be anything but a QB at this point. If the Giants could land two of the players listed below, I think they will take some pressure off themselves on draft day…
RB: Ben Tate, Rashad Jennings, Knowshon Moreno
WR: James Jones, Dexter McCluster, Danario Alexander
TE: Andrew Quarless, Jermichael Finley, Brandon Pettigrew
C: Evan Dietrich-Smith, Brian de la Puente
OG: Geoff Schwartz, Jon Asamoah, Zane Beadles
OT: Eugene Monroe, Brandon Albert, Jared Veldheer
Should these players reach free agency, they will be among the “first wave” of names you’ll see signing deals next week. The Giants are in the market for players at all of these positions. Whether or not they have this group high on their lists remains to be seen.
