The Super Bowl may be over, but the NFL offseason is just warming up. Here are 5 players the New York Giants could select in next spring’s draft.

It’s no secret that the 2015 season was another disappointing one for the New York Giants. GM Jerry Reese has already appointed a new head coach, made multiple roster cuts, and is facing an offseason which could impact his job status for the following year.

Free agency will certainly play a major role in how the Giants draft when comes April 28. It is likely the team will be $50 million under next year’s cap, (which is still yet to be determined). You can be sure to expect changes to be made.

The Big Blue front office will have their work cut out for them, after one of the worst defenses in Giants history took the field in 2015. Each unit needs a facelift, as the G-men finished last in passing and total yards allowed, and a mere 30th in sacks. A franchise known for their pass rush for the past decade, was embarrassed last season.

Outside of Odell Beckham Jr and Eli Manning, the Giants lack skill position players on offense. The right side of the offensive line needs serious work, especially after Wednesday’s roster cuts.

Reese has not signed any of his first round picks after their rookie contract expired, and the pressure will be on to hit a homerun with the number 10 selection. While the draft is still a few months away, we’ll look at 5 players that could be wearing blue when comes the end of April.
