IMPORTANT LOSSES: retired GM Ted Thompson

Postprzez linzhihong18 » 17 sie 2018, o 07:49


LAST SEASON: After making playoffs for first time since winning Super Bowl in February 2012 Carlton Fisk Jersey , Giants imploded in coach Ben McAdoo's second season. Opened with five straight losses in injury-marred season that saw receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall lost for season in Week 5. Not only did team lose, McAdoo lost locker room and then his job after benching Eli Manning in early December. General manager Jerry Reese also was ousted for failing to shore up bad offensive line and giving OK on Manning decision. TE Evan Engram, last year's first-round choice, was major positive in bad year.


THEY DON'T NEED: DT Wholesale Jaleel Scott Jersey , S, LS.

POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: QB Sam Darnold, Southern California; RB Saquon Barkley, Penn State; DE Bradley Chubb, North Carolina State; G Quenton Nelson, Notre Dame; QB Josh Rosen, UCLA.

OUTLOOK: Giants haven't had pick this high since taking Philip Rivers with No. 4 overall choice in 2004 and then packaging him and draft picks to San Diego for Manning. 37-year-old Manning is still No. 1 guy and question is how much longer can he play? Two years, three? Also is there future two-time Super Bowl MVP in this group of incoming QBs. Also need for pass rusher with recent trade of Jason Pierre-Paul to Tampa Bay. Or standout running back. New coach and quarterback whisperer Pat Shurmur can revive offense, especially if Beckham returns healthy and happy 鈥?contract could be issue 鈥?and Manning does not get hurt. New GM Dave Gettleman filled some needs in offseason Brian Urlacher Bears Jersey , signing T Nate Solder, LB Kareem Martin, RB Jonathan Stewart and trading with Rams for OLB Alec Ogletree. Terminating Marshall's contract creates need for big receiver in middle rounds. O-line has to be upgraded, especially guards. Giants can't afford any misses with six picks, all in first five rounds. Would help if recent first-rounders T Ereck Flowers (2015) and CB Eli Apple ('16) started playing better.


OPEN CAMP: July 26, Green Bay, Wisconsin

LAST YEAR: Finished under .500 and out of playoffs for first time since 2008. Offense struggled with QB Aaron Rodgers sidelined for seven games with broken collarbone. Defense plagued by porous secondary and lack of consistent pass rush. Injuries ravaged cornerback position again.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: GM Brian Gutekunst, offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine Wholesale Robert Griffin III Jersey , QB DeShone Kizer, TE Jimmy Graham, TE Marcedes Lewis, CB Tramon Williams, rookie CBs Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, DL Muhammad Wilkerson.

IMPORTANT LOSSES: retired GM Ted Thompson, defensive coordinator Dom Capers, S Morgan Burnett, WR Jordy Nelson Kurt Suzuki Jersey , G Jahri Evans, TE Richard Rodgers.

CAMP NEEDS: Find receiver to replace Nelson. Packers took three wideouts in middle rounds of draft, but returnees Geronimo Allison and Trevor Davis could have early edge. With Rodgers sidelined, Nelson's production tailed off last year, and Packers let him go in offseason and brought in Graham to provide big target over middle. At their best, Rodgers and Nelson were one of top combos in league. Packers need to develop pass-rush depth behind Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, and hope that Alexander and Jackson can learn from Williams to help in coverage.

EXPECTATIONS: Packers are always threat as long as Rodgers is healthy. Last season served as painful lesson of what team needs to shore up defensive deficiencies that could be masked by their gifted quarterback. At worst, expect return to playoffs 鈥?assuming Rodgers is healthy 鈥?following offseason full of changes in Titletown.
