The 2021 NFL Draft has elapsed, and it’s time to turn to rookie minicamps, OTAs, and everything that pertains to the post-NFL Draft world. the Giants have 90 players on the roster without the undrafted free agents; the signings of Florida OC Brett Heggie, OT from Baylor Jake Barton, and Georgia Southern EDGE Raymond Johnson III put the roster at 93.To get more Giants MEN ELITE with cheap price, you can visit giantsnfl.com official website.

By game day in September, the roster needs to be down to 53, with two of the sixteen practice squad players being called up for active duty - this cannot be the same players every week. Obviously, everyone can’t make the team. I want to look at the offensive side of the football and see how the 2021 additions may affect this season’s active roster, play calling, and personnel. Let’s dive into it!

It doesn’t matter how much head coach Joe Judge states that everyone needs to earn their spot - the starting quarterback in 2021, barring injury, is Daniel Jones. Joe Judge is the type of coach who wants to maximize every active position on Sunday. Typically, players who don’t start have to have some special teams upside - this doesn’t necessarily pertain to the quarterback position.

For most of the 2020 season, the Giants dressed just Daniel Jones and Colt McCoy at quarterback with Clayton Thorson as their practice squad quarterback. By mid-season, Joe Webb signed with the Giants as Daniel Jones dealt with a hamstring/ankle sprain ailment that head coach Joe Judge admitted was a bit more ruinous than the Giants led on.After the 2020 season ended, Colt McCoy signed with the Arizona Cardinals. McCoy was the quarterback for the Giants' big 17-12 upset victory in Seattle against the Seahawks. New York replaced McCoy with Mike Glennon, a journeyman quarterback who isn’t as polished as McCoy but does have a much bigger, more lively arm.

As the team is currently constructed, the Giants have Jones, Glennon, Webb, and Thorson. By the time the season commences, I expect only Jones and Glennon to be dressed, with a practice squad allocated to whoever wins between Webb and Thorson.

I see the logic in keeping Webb aboard since he is mobile, which can help the defensive game plan against teams that possess quarterbacks that fit his athletic ability. The Giants have to play the Chargers, Saints (depending on if Taysom Hill starts), Chiefs, and the Cowboys and Eagles twice a year, so Webb can help with preparing for these teams.

Thorson could defeat Webb, or the Giants could locate an undrafted free agent they like; they seemed to appreciate the skill-set of Case Cookus from Northern Arizona last off-season, but he ultimately didn’t make the squad. Jones has yet to finish a season healthy in two seasons, so they must have a competent backup in place. The team feels that Glennon who was adequate for the Jaguars last season. Let’s hope Daniel Jones can play the entire year for the first time in his NFL career.
