NFL stardom is fickle in nature. It takes a long hard road to reach, yet injuries and age can take it away in a heartbeat. In order to be a true NFL star, a player needs to be incredibly talented, productive, and valuable to their team's success.
The following is a list of four New York Football Giants that are poised for NFL stardom. These are players that I believe will have monster years, who at season's end will be considered top 10 players at their respective positions.
If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times, the NFL stands for "Not For Long." However, that phrase is a double-edged sword: as quickly as old stars fall by the wayside new ones are waiting in the wings to take their place.
Players on the Giants who are already stars, like Eli Manning and Justin Tuck, are not eligible for this list. Neither are the Giants rookies, who are far too raw and young to be able to accurately predict impact. Could Linval Joseph and Jason Pierre-Paul have star-making rookie seasons? Sure, but I also wouldn't put it past either of them to have redshirt type rookie seasons. Too hard to predict.
As a bonus, I have included a Giants player who I felt just missed the cut on being considered a star in the making.
Now here are the Giants' soon to be stars.
