The New York Giants made the playoffs in 2022, something that not many expected of them heading into the season.
This was led by Daniel Jones’ improved passing numbers, as well as utilizing more of his rushing game.
Heading into the 2023 season, the Giants will look to the draft to build and construct their roster to make another playoff run.
Although there are a few position groups that they are looking to improve, league-wide speculation is that they will make a few moves at wide receiver.
At the NFL Combine, Giants reporter Connor Rogers noted, “They will look to retool both the offense and the defense, and that starts with the wide receiver position.”

The Giants recently released Kenny Golladay, which freed up $6.7 million in available cap space.
Golladay was originally signed to a four-year deal, but due to his injuries and lack of production, the Giants ended up parting ways with him.
Now, the Giants will look to both free agency and the draft to find a few difference-makers at the position.
Rogers also indicated that, regarding the draft, the Giants will not just be looking at first-round names.
“The Giants have three picks on day two of the draft, where a lot of the volume of this class will come off the board,” said Rogers.
Several superstar talents can be found in the first round of the upcoming draft.
However, the Giants could look to take a few wide receivers in the later rounds, which could prove to be a diamond in the rough.
Wherever they can find it, the Giants need to surround Jones with more help on offense.NEXT: NFL Fans React To Daniel Jones' Reported Contract Demands
