Excerpt: "A busy month of signings and re-signings have reshaped the Giants future, both long and short-term.
They are now set at cornerback, where they were think prior to free agency. They're invested in a running back (Rashad Jennings) for at least a couple seasons. They're comfortable in at least one guard spot with free-agent signing Geoff Schwartz.
General manager Jerry Reese accomplished plenty in the first month of free agency. With salary cap constraints, more holes than usual on the roster to fill and almost half his 2013 team set to become free agents, he couldn't realistically do it all. The Giants still have major needs heading into the 2014 NFL Draft.
Prior to free agency, Conor had offensive line, tight end and running back pegged as the team's biggest needs. I threw tight end in there too.
Not much has changed in regards to the long-term view of the offensive line. It's still a major need moving forward. Tight end has also become increasingly more relevant, thanks to the Giants' relative inactivity at the position in free agency.
Heading into the draft, it's now their No. 1 need. It's not their only one though.
1. Tight End -- They just can't move forward with Kellen Davis or Adrien Robinson as their starting tight end. Neither have done anything notable to this point of their careers.
2. Center -- The J.D. Walton signing was a major risk. He hasn't played in almost three years, and the Giants don't even have a reliable contingency plan at this point. The center position still needs to be addressed." Read more...
