2019 Record: 4-12; Finished: 3rd in the NFC East

General Manager: Dave Gettleman (3rd Year), Head Coach: Joe Judge (1st Year), Offensive Coordinator: Jason Garrett (1st Year), Defensive Coordinator: Patrick Graham (1st Year)

Offense Rankings: No. 23 Overall, No. 19 Scoring, No. 18 Passing, No. 19 Rushing

As they transitioned from the Eli Manning era to rookie Daniel Jones, the Giants offense had some moments, but overall dipped in production. The passing offense in particular took a hit, dropping seven slots from No. 11 in the NFL, while the running game was slightly improved. They added right tackle Cameron Fleming via free agency, but if the offense is going to get better it will be about the development of the returning talent, namely Jones.

Defense Rankings: No. 25 Overall, No. 30 Scoring, No. 28 Passing, No. 20 Rushing

New York hit one of their lowest points last season as they allowed 28.2 points per game, better than just two teams in the entire league. The difference came in the pass defense, as they dropped from 23rd in 2018. Dave Gettleman was more aggressive in addressing the defense this offseason. In addition to franchising Leonard Williams, the G-Men signed free agents James Bradberry, Blake Martinez, and Kyler Fackrell, who are all expected to start.

The Five-Year Plan – Record: 29-51; Last Playoff Appearance: 2016; Last Playoff Victory: 2011 Season (21-17 over the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl)

2020 Picks: The Giants traded away their third-round pick (68th overall) during the season to the crosstown New York Jets for defensive lineman Leonard Williams while recouping a later selection in the round (99), as a compensatory pick. The G-Men lost six free agents last offseason, headlined by safety Landon Collins, while they added just two so in total they were awarded with three compensatory picks with the latter two coming in the seventh round. New York has a selection in each of the seven rounds, with four coming in the final round, including a pick they acquired in a 2018 trade of Eli Apple. With the fourth overall choice in the 2020 NFL Draft, it’s the third-straight year the Giants are picking in the top six. They haven’t had selections that high in back-to-back years since the 1940s.

Round 1, Selection 4

Round 2, Selection 36

Round 3, Selection 99 (compensatory pick)

Round 4, Selection 110

Round 5, Selection 150

Round 6, Selection 183

Round 7, Selection 218

Round 7, Selection 238 (from Saints)

Round 7, Selection 247 (compensatory pick)

Round 7, Selection 255 (compensatory pick)
