Our draft previews continue with a look at the Giants’ needs

The Giants are going to look different in 2014.

Justin Tuck, Hakeem Nicks and Linval Joseph are all gone and the team signed a slew of free agents, including Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Rashad Jennings and Geoff Schwartz, to address some of the trouble spots that contributed to their 7-9 finish in 2013. Those additions didn’t fill all of the holes, though, and the Giants have some work to do in the draft if that different look is going to be a better one.

The offense that owner John Mara called broken needs help at tight end and wide receiver, to say nothing of lingering questions about Eli Manning’s protection. The once-fearsome pass rush stalled last season and the departure of Tuck and Joseph leaves the team thin on the defensive line.

We’ve broken down all those needs in our draft preview of the Giants. Check it out here and let us know what you think the Giants’ top priority should be come draft day.

    Biggest need: Get out of division that includes a racist team name and bigoted owner. MAKE A POLL for the name change debate!!!

    “stoke the pass rush”? I didn’t know snowboarders were playing in the NFL.

    At 12 you pick best player on the board. Seattle took Earl Thomas at 13. Should get a dandy. Go Hawks!

    Get a left tackle because Beatty stunk last year and he is recovering from a broken leg.If either Matthews or Lewan is there at 12 jump on it.Hey 25 cuts what 2 super bowls has your team won lately?

    The Giants are the only NFC EAST team to win the Super Bowl this century and they have done it twice.Way to represent because the other three obviously can’t do it.

    Just get the best available player when your turn comes in the draft and you can’t go wrong.
    The GMen need help everywhere so this is the best way to build the team, good luck Jerry.

    How about this? They need an entire new Oline, new DLINE, a TE, a #1 WR, at least 1 LB…a new QB…just a new team basically…
