1. Middle Linebacker
The New York Giants can’t seem to find a capable mike linebacker. Chase Blackburn, Mark Herzlich, Greg Jones and Jacquian Williams have all tried and failed to fill the hole over the past two seasons. Kevin Minter and Alec Ogletree could be options in the first round. Manti Te’o is another possibility.
2. Tight End
Martellus Bennett may be re-signed, but if he’s allowed to walk the Giants have a glaring hole at tight end. Bear Pascoe is a great blocking tight end, but Eli Manning needs someone who can be a weapon in the passing game. Tom Coughlin has always preferred well-rounded tight ends, which limits his options, but Tyler Eifert might be a perfect fit in the first round.
3. Offensive Line
The Giants could get by in 2013 with the line as its currently constructed, but the could use some upgrades (especially at left guard) and some added depth. Three of their starters (Diehl, Snee and Baas) are 31 or older.
