The latest power ranking from NFL.com’s Dan Hanzus are out and the New York Giants are rising up the ranks.

Big Blue has been splurging in free agency the past week and the results have been met with positive reviews.

22. New York Giants: Previous rank: 25

The Giants did right by Daniel Jones when they cut that big check for Kenny Golladay. New York hasn’t had a game-changing threat at wide receiver since Odell Beckham was traded away in 2019, and Golladay fits the bill as a proven playmaker on the outside. Golladay’s 2020 season was largely ruined by a hip injury, but he is an All-Pro level talent when at full strength. Golladay joins Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram and Darius Slayton to form a strong nucleus of playmakers around Jones. There will be no excuses if the former first-round pick is unable to make the leap in Year 3.

This was before the Giants inked cornerback Adoree’ Jackson this week and continued to fine-tune their roster for the upcoming NFL draft.

The Giants have been incrementally adding young veterans to their roster at positions of need and, for a team that had little salary cap space two weeks ago, are refiguring their way of doing business to meet their roster demands.
