2014 NFL Draft Prospects Who Could Be Instant Starters for New York Giants

Tom Coughlin needs several Week 1 starters from the draft if he is going to help get the Giants back into the playoffs in 2014.

Finding a player in the draft that can start Week 1 of the upcoming season is normally the goal for an NFL team. Given the number of holes the New York Giants have on both sides of the ball, it is imperative that several of their draft selections are able to accomplish this impressive achievement.

Big Blue would benefit from finding rookie starters at any of the following positions—guard, center, wide receiver, tight end, cornerback and outside linebacker. The following slides will determine seven players at these positions that have the talent and refined skills to become immediate starters for New York.

A few important points to cover before revealing and discussing the players. First, the slides are in descending order by the round the player is currently projected to be drafted. Therefore, potential first round selections that can be instant starters won’t be covered until the end.

Also, only players the Giants can realistically pick are included. For instance, if a draft prospect is currently slated to go at the end of the first round, New York likely won’t take him, unless, of course, they trade down or severely reach with the 12th pick. In addition, surefire top 10 picks won’t be mentioned either. In other words, don’t expect to see Jadeveon Clowney.

With the disclaimers out of the way, let’s get started.
