3. Matt Peart
The veteran offensive lineman has struggled to stay healthy since he was drafted by the Giants in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Peart suffered a shoulder injury in Week 5, which caused him to miss the next nine games. The former UConn standout returned to the field in Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles, where he played three special teams snaps.
After that, Peart saw some playing time in the next week’s game against the Los Angeles Rams, where he only gave up one pressure in 20 pass-blocking snaps. Peart made his first start this season in Week 18 against the Philadelphia Eagles, where he shined in pass protection.
The 26-year-old still has some upside despite being banged up. But Giants fans might feel as if the team can go in another direction to find a backup offensive tackle. Overall, Peart has played in 43 games over his four-year Giants career and started in seven games.
