The New York Giants did not come close to competing for the playoffs in 2019, but they did seemingly find their quarterback of the future. Daniel Jones was drafted No. 6 overall last offseason in the 2019 NFL Draft and he took over the starting job from Eli Manning. Now, the Giants know the direction they are going in at quarterback.

Finally, there is no concern about who will lead the Giants into the future. Manning has retired and the future is now for Jones and New York.

Defensively, the Giants know that there are a lot of improvements that need to be made. Adding talent at the linebacker position, both inside and outside, should be a priority. If New York wants to turn things around and become contenders again, they have to shore up the middle of their defense.

All of that being said, let’s take a look at five linebacker prospects the Giants should have their eyes on in the upcoming NFL Draft Combine.
