With the draft over, most of the Giants’ 2024 roster is likely set.

That said, it isn’t completely set. The Giants still have holes on this roster, even post-draft.

It is also important to note that while we may have our predictions for the Giants’ draft picks, we truly don’t know how these players will turn out.

With all this being said, let’s take a look at the Giants’ biggest needs post-NFL draft.

Before I start, I’m not going to mention QB.  Daniel Jones is likely the starting quarterback, with Drew Lock backing him up.  Joe Schoen reportedly attempted to trade up to draft Drake Maye.  That didn’t happen, so we’re at where we’re at. With that out of the way, the offensive guard is still a question mark.  The Giants signed Jon Runyan Jr. in free agency to likely start at Right Guard.  The other side is still a question.

The Giants took no offensive lineman in the draft, which leaves free agent additions Jermaine Eluemunor, Aaron Stinnie, and 2022 3rd-round draft pick Joshua Ezeudu to compete at that spot.  Tackle could also be a question mark.  It’s no secret that Evan Neal has not played well in his first 2 years in the NFL.  He will have to compete with Eluemunor in training camp for the starting right tackle spot.  If he loses, he could also be in the mix for guard.

While the offensive line seems to always be a question mark with the Giants, the defense has some holes as well.

The Giant’s defense has a glaring hole opposite second-year corner Deontae Banks.  The hole left by Adoree Jackson has not been filled, and it will be fascinating to see if the Giants address the position with a veteran signing.  If not, we are likely looking at Nick McCloud or Cordale Flott starting at corner in 2024.  The other question is depth at the defensive line.  The Giants obviously have a monster in the middle of their defense in Dexter Lawrence.

They also have a healthy edge rotation with Brian Burns, Kayvon Thibodeaux, and Azeez Ojulari.

The hole left by the departures of Leonard Williams and A’Shawn Robinson, though, is felt when looking at the roster.  The Giants did bring in Jordan Phillips from the Bills, but I’m not convinced he is the player Williams or Robinson is.  Behind Lawrence and Phillips are Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Jordan Riley, D.J. Davidson, and Ryder Anderson.  Adding another defensive lineman could help improve this D-Line for the 2024 season.

The thing about the NFL draft is that it takes some players years to blossom into players. For many of the positions mentioned here, the Giants are relying on past draft picks and young guys to develop into solid players.

While this is important on an NFL team, it will be interesting to see if the Giants make any notable additions prior to the start of the season.

While the first stage of free agency and draft are over, the Giants still have work to do on this roster.
