Saquon Barkley is an established talent, but while the NY Giants have been spending a lot this offseason, league insiders have varying opinions on who the Giants’ second best player is.
The NY Giants roster is significantly more talented entering 2021 than it has been in years.
After a front office spending spree that included inking the free agency award, wide receiver Kenny Golladay and cornerback Adoree ‘Jackson to meet the dire need and targeted spending to build depth at all levels, expectations are understandably high at East Rutherford.
Giants running back Saquon Barkley, a former No.2 pick in the NFL Draft, remains among the most gifted players in his post in the entire league, but he suddenly faces competition as the best player in the league. the New York list.
FanSided surveyed several executives, head coaches, scouts, post coaches and NFL players to find out who the best NY Giants player on the list is after Barkley.
Here are the players named by NFL sources as the NY Giants’ second best player on the list, and their reasons why he is their choice:
DL Leonard Williams
“Leonard Williams… He’s so disruptive and strong at the point of attack up front.” – NFC Head Coach
“Leonard Williams. He’s already one of the most talented 3-4 defensive linemen in the entire league. – NFC Defensive Coach
Williams has just completed the strongest season of his career, producing a career-high 11.5 sacks and bolstering his reputation as one of the most dominant players in his post in the NFL.
According to Pro Football Focus, Williams added 62 pressures in total, including 31 in a hurry last season, as the outlet’s No.15 inside defender.
Now the challenge for Williams is to prove that his 2020 explosion is the product of work under the tutelage of defensive line coach Sean Spencer and coordinator Patrick Graham, rather than a one-year fluke of contract, after the NY Giants pledged $ 63 million three years to the former Jets’ No. 6 overall pick.
