The New York Giants’ 2012 season came to a crushing end last Sunday, but in the coming months, the organization will start to put together the pieces for next year. Through the NFL draft, free agency and possibly even trades, New York will work on fielding a better team in 2013 than it did this past fall.
In the draft, Giants general manager Jerry Reese likes to snag the best player available, regardless of the team’s positional needs. However, in free agency, Reese will often bolster the team’s specific deficiencies.
With nine wins in 2012, the Giants were a winning squad, but they were far from elite. The units that held New York back the most were the linebackers and offensive line. Reese needs to target difference-makers at these positions in free agency this spring.
This article will highlight three linebackers and three offensive linemen that Reese should consider.
