Here's my breakdown of our team by position moving forward into the 2012 draft and season:
QB: Eli (2016) is made out of a space aged polymer and Carr has re-signed with us for another year (for less money / opportunity no less). Very low priority.
OG: Currently on our roster we have Snee (2015), Petrus (2014), Boothe (2014) as the main guys we talk about with the bit players being Chris White (2013) and Jim Cordle (2013). We can make the arguement that depth is needed, especially to replace the bit players after 2012 (if not before). Priority: Moderate-Low
Center: With the signing of David Baas (2016) and depth wtih Jim Cordle (2013) and Kevin Boothe (2014), this is not a position of need. Priority: Low
OT: Our current crop of OTs consists of David Diehl (2015), James Brewer (2015), Will Beatty (2013) as our mains with Selvish Capers (2013 - RFA), and Joel Reinders (2013) being the bit players. While Diehl may very well start at RT, he is certainly not the future. Given the length of time the Giants dedicate to coaching up a potential OT, this is a spot that needs depth if not a near-tuture starter if James Brewer can't step up in that capacity. Priority: Moderate - High
TE: Putting Ballard and Beckum aside for this year (torn ACLs in the Super Bowl) the current roster includes Martel Bennett (2013), Bear Pascoe (2012 - RFA), Larry Donnel (2013), Christian Hopkins (2013), and Ryan Purvis (2013). It very much appears that the Giants are continuing their trend of throwing numbers at the position and seeing what sticks. However as you can see from the contracts, this is a year to year position at the moment. Priority: Moderate.
WR: Currently Hakeem Nicks (2014), Victor Cruz (2013 - RFA), Jerrel Jernigan (2015), Dominick Hixon (2013), Ramses Barden (2013), Dan Depalma (2013 - RFA), and Isaiah Stanback (2013). The hunt for the #3 receiver is on with JJ being the pre-camp favorite being Jernigan. Going forward we will need not only our #3, but a contigency for the loss of either Nicks or Cruz within two years. Priority: Moderate - High.
RB: Ahmad Bradshaw (2015), DJ Ware (2013 - RFA), Andre Brown (2013 - RFA), and Da'Rel Scott (2015). With the loss of Brandon Jacobs and AB's failing feet, this is a position with a large question mark. DJ Ware has only been servicable, Andre Brown is two years removed from a ruptured Achilles and Da'Rel Scott is a 7th round draft pick with fumble issues. Priority: High.
FB: Henry Hynoski (2014 - RFA), Bear Pascoe (2012 - RFA). Priority: Low.
Summary: I believe you will see the Giants draft a Wide Receiver and a Running Back within the first 4 rounds. An OT would be a smart move in the first 3 rounds as well but the Giants may look to go value here as well as with the TE position.
Prediction: Look for the Giants to draft a RB such as Chris Rainey (Rds 3-4) AND re-sign Brandon Jacobs to a short term contract. Mohamed Sanu (WR) in the second and value picks at Tight End (Nick Provo) and OT (Andrew Datko / Nate Potter).
