2. Azzez Ojulari

Ojulari wasn’t a draft pick in the Schoen regime, so there’s a shot that he might want to move the former second-round pick to bolster the Giants’ pass rusher and linebacker unit.

The 23-year-old linebacker has struggled to stay healthy over the last two years, playing in 18 out of a potential 34 games. Ojulari only suited up in 11 contests this season as he missed some time with an ankle injury.

The 6-foot-3, 240 lb. linebacker produced 16 combined tackles, seven quarterback hits, three tackles for loss, and 2.5 sacks. It wasn’t a great season statistically for Ojulari, who posted 5.5 in 2022 and 8.0 sacks as a rookie in 2021.

We know Ojulari has talent, but his ability right now is availability, which hasn’t helped his cause to be on the field more. The Giants will not have Wink Martindale as defensive coordinator next season, which might not be good news for the young linebacker.

Nevertheless, the Giants don’t have to trade Ojulari this offseason, as he’s still on his rookie contract. But with the 23-year-old having trouble staying healthy, New York could look to get some draft picks in return, as he’s scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in 2025.
