Tom Coughlin, Jerry Reese and the New York Giants have their work cut out for them to improve a team that went 10-6 last season and missed the playoffs. The Giants have a number of positions they can improve upon.
Barring trades, the Giants will only be able to meet one of their needs in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft.
The Giants will be looking for help at linebacker, tight end and all along the offensive and defensive lines. Some of these needs will have to be addressed in free agency, but the Giants will use their first-round pick to address at least one of these positions.
These are the players whose progress the Giants' draft team will likely be tracking through the first round.
