30. New York Giants

Never in a million years did football fans expect the New York Giants to take a major step back in 2017 by going from a legitimate Super Bowl contender to only winning three games all season, putting the team in a tough position this offseason. Not to mention, there’s still the possibility of Odell Beckham Jr. ending up with a different team for the 2018 season when looking at all of the trade rumors that have been taking place over the last couple of weeks.

Without question, there have been times in which Beckham has looked like one of the league’s most dangerous receivers, and his numbers will back it up, minus last season when he was limited to playing in just four games due to an ankle injury. For obvious reasons, Beckham returning to the Giants would provide the team with a much better chance to compete in the NFC since it would obviously make life easier for Eli Manning on offense.

Speaking of Manning, the veteran quarterback will hopefully benefit from the addition of Nate Solder and Jonathan Stewart in free agency to help take some of the pressure off under center. Despite all of the questions surrounding whether Manning would be back in the picture for 2018, it can’t hurt New York either to consider his successor with the No. 2 pick in this year’s draft.
