Scouts Inc. – Ground Game for Giants Ranked 27th

A recent ranking of running games by Scouts Inc. says that Droughnsthe Giants ground game in 2007 is not going to be too good. Despite adding former Browns back Ruben Droughns, the team has their issues at the position. Below is the recap of the Giants #27 ranking heading into 2007:

27. New York Giants

This might seem a little low to rank the Giants, but they come into this season with a lot of questions at RB. With longtime starter Tiki Barber retiring, the onus of the No. 1 RB position falls to former backup Brandon Jacobs. Jacobs possesses an excellent combination of size and speed and has been productive with his opportunities, but has never had to carry the entire load. The team added his backup when it traded for Reuben Droughns, who is coming off a poor season on and off the field in Cleveland. If Jacobs can be the change-of-pace runner he has shown flashes of, the Giants would move way up this list. Barber meant a lot to this team on the field as a runner and also as a receiver, so Jacobs has huge shoes to fill. Whether he can will go a long way in determining the Giants’ fate.
