True, the secondary was the team's Achilles' heel in 2011, but a healthy Terrell Thomas should change that this year.
Thomas and Corey Webster seem to have the starting corner spots all but locked down. The real question lies at the nickel position. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell likes to keep extra bodies in the secondary, as the Giants' ferocious front four eliminates the need for excessive blitzing. Thus, the third corner should see plenty of playing time.
Antwan Molden was signed from New England in the offseason. He had two interceptions in a spotty Patriots secondary. With four years of NFL experience, he will likely put up a fight for the nickel spot.
Big Blue also took corner Jayron Hosley, a teammate of first-round selection David Wilson at Virginia Tech, in the draft. The Giants like the potential of Hosley, who should fit right into the fold in New York.
But all eyes are on former first-rounder Prince Amukamara. After a shaky rookie season in which he was only healthy for seven games, Amukamara should be ready to assume the nickel responsibilities.
Preliminary Prediction: Prince Amukamara
