Expert NFL Picks Team Strengths: Quarterback Eli Manning who still owns two Super Bowl rings despite his pathetic 69.4 passer rating last season. Two quality running backs in former Raider Rashad Jennings (6’1″ 231 4.52 40-speed) and record breaking college RB Andre Williams (5’11” 230 4.50) Three quality wideouts in Victor Cruz (7 Rec. 998 yds. 4 TD’s) Rueben Randle (41 Rec. 611 yds. 6 TD’s) and LSU 1st rounder Odell Beckham (5’11” 198 4.43). Upgrades on the offensive line that must jell quickly but have upside to last year’s unit that was among the NFL’s worst. Athletic defensive secondary that can create turnovers and has potential to be among league’s best. Knockout puncher Jon Beason (6’0” 240 425 Lb. bench-press) a veteran enforcer at middle linebacker. Upgrades at special teams after poor play in coverage and returns.
Expert NFL Picks Team Weaknesses: Suspect depth at RB behind the injury riddled Wilson. Potentially washed up former star in defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (2.0 Sacks) who is surrounded by a suspect D-line. Lots of new pieces that must jell quickly on both sides of the ball. An offense that ranked 28th in scoring and 28th yards led by a possibly faded 33-year old QB in Eli Manning.
Expert NFL Picks Analysis: The Giants have great upside after adding the necessary pieces through the draft and free-agency. Our ESPN2 News expert picks crew likes coach Tom Coughlin and believe a 10-6 season is in the works with better O-line play and a stingy pass-defense. Eli Manning might not be prime but a bounce back from last year’s disaster is inevitable with his Top-10 QB skill set (Power-Arm, Accuracy, Pocket Presence) The NFC East is no longer the intimidating beasts of past legend with the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins both fringe contenders. Bet the big apple G-Men to surprise the bookies.
