4. Add a cornerback
The Giants made some headlines with midseason trades in 2018, including the deal that sent starting corner Eli Apple to the New Orleans Saints. Apple netted two draft picks, including a fourth rounder this year, but it created a hole in the Giants’ starting lineup.
Journeyman B.W. Webb, who didn’t play a game in 2017, assumed most of the snaps opposite Janoris Jenkins and was unspectacular in his place. The Giants need to find another starting corner to pair with Jenkins in order to help shore up the back end of their defense.
Fortunately for the Giants, there should be plenty of interesting free agent corners to choose from. One logical fit could be Morris Claiborne, who has played on a pair of one year contracts with the Jets, and is still just 29 years old.
Other corners the Giants could pursue in free agency include, Ronald Darby, Stephen Nelson, Kareem Jackson, and Jason McCourty. The Giants could also consider Greedy Williams and Deandre Baker with the sixth pick in the draft if they opt not to draft a quarterback.
