Giants Now: PFF gives Big Blue 'A' grade for offseason

GIANTS-NOW-SCHOEN-DABOLL

Headlined by the Daniel Jones contract, Joe Schoen had a busy second offseason as general manager. The Giants also traded for dynamic tight end Darren Waller and acquired veteran playmakers on both sides of the ball. And then there was last month's draft, which saw the Giants move up twice in the first three rounds as part of seven total selections.

Looking at those moves, Pro Football Focus gave the Giants an “A” for their offseason grade.

"In the draft, the Giants saw the first two rounds unfold in an ideal way," Sam Monson wrote. "In the first round, they selected Deonte Banks at cornerback before securing a player in the second (center John Michael Schmitz) who many had been expecting them to draft a round higher. Receiver Jalin Hyatt in the third round is another selection that brings a lot of upside, giving the Giants an elite first two days of the draft."

The Giants were one of six teams to receive a full A grade from PFF, joining the Eagles, Steelers, Seahawks, Bengals, and Browns.

"The veteran portion of Philadelphia's offseason was about retaining talent and minimizing the losses following their Super Bowl appearance," Monson wrote about the rival Eagles. "After looking like they were going to lose one and then the other of James Bradberry and Darius Slay, they somehow retained both — as well as Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham along the defensive line. There were losses, but by and large they are at spots the Eagles had already future-proofed a season ago. In the draft, the Eagles worked magic and emerged from the first round with both Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith, elite defensive linemen on Georgia's formidable defense. Their next three picks — offensive lineman Tyler Steen, safety Sydney Brown and cornerback Kelee Ringo — could all contribute early and future-proof positions for 2024 and beyond, at worst. The Eagles had another outstanding offseason."
