The New York Giants rode a stellar defense into the playoffs this season, as they reached postseason play for the first time in five years. However, their weak offense proved to be their undoing in the Wild Card round, as they could not keep up with the high-powered offense of the Green Bay Packers. They have some solid pieces in place for the next couple of years, but they need to add to a very vanilla offense this coming offseason.
One area that needs help is at running back, where they really got nothing from any of their backs this season. Quarterback Eli Manning is beginning to get up there in age, and if the Giants cannot get a running back behind him, the team is going to be very limited as to what they can do with the ball. There are some really good backs in next April’s draft, and D’Onta Foreman is definitely one of them.
Foreman is a rare blend of size and speed, and he looks like he was built to play at the NFL level. He has the kind of running ability that is going to equate well at the next level, and has incredible vision when it comes to finding his holes. He would be a perfect fit for the Giants offense, which needs to change things up next season if they are going to battle for a playoff spot once again.
