2. New York Giants

The Giants have been upgrading their line through the draft for the past few seasons.

They drafted Andrew Thomas fourth overall in 2020 and last season he was named to Pro Football Focus' first team and the Associated Press' second team. Evan Neal was taken seventh overall in last year's draft and became an instant starter. Despite dealing with injuries and inconsistency last season, Neal looks the part of a starting right tackle.

While the Giants did lose Nick Gates and John Feliciano to free agency, they are bringing back the majority of their starters. They also drafted John Michael Schmitz in the second round out of Minnesota to fill the need at center. Currently the depth chart appears to be Thomas at left tackle, Ben Bredeson at left guard, Schmitz at center, Mark Glowinski at right guard and Neal at right tackle.

This unit might not be filled with many Pro Bowlers, but the offensive line showed improvement last season to help the Giants make the playoffs for the first time since 2016. Having a healthy Saquon Barkley definitely helps, but the offensive line deserves credit for allowing Barkley to have his first 1,000-yard rushing season since 2019.

With Daniel Jones also taking a huge leap last season, the line remains poised to be one of the best in the NFC East and make an even bigger jump in 2023. Ranking this unit second might raise some eyebrows, but if New York remains healthy this year, they could walk away with the division title.
