Will Hernandez, B.J. Hill join Saquon Barkley as starters on Giants depth chart

AP

The Giants had a need for new talent on their roster after going 3-13 last season and three of the players they drafted in April have shot to the top of the depth chart.

It’s no surprise that running back Saquon Barkley is one of those players. Barkley was the second overall pick in the draft and was selected in hopes that he could make the Giants offense great again.

Finding second-round pick Will Hernandez at left guard also isn’t a shocker. The Giants offensive line was a disaster last season and Hernandez’s scrappiness has already won him admirers among his teammates.

If there is a surprise, it would be that third-round pick B.J. Hill finds himself listed next to Damon Harrison and Dalvin Tomlinson on the starting defensive line. With Josh Mauro suspended for the first four games and no other returning regulars, Hill’s chances of keeping that spot into the regular season are probably pretty good.

  1. These moves are like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
    The Giants start the season with a brutal eight game schedule before their bye. They’ll be lucky to be 2 – 6 at the bye, and it could be worse than that. At that point the team will lose hope, the fans will be calling for Eli to be benched, and the wheels will come off.
    They’ll be picking early again in next year’s draft, but alas there won’t be as many quality QB prospects from which to pick.

  2. BJ Hill complimented Chubb very well at NC State, kid is quick and strong just what the Giants need up front. Don’t forget about Lorenzo Carter LB out of Georgia a kid Bellichick had an eye on. Both him and Matt Patricia took him off to the side to work on instinctive drills at his pro day. Oh and the kid can run over 22mph and can squat over 500lb. Love it!!
