Ranking The Giants: 65-45

There’s no news. I wish there was. But there is not. Other than meaningless lockout drivel, us lowly bloggers are forced to find something to talk about. It’s a hard knock life.

So, because all we have to write are opinion pieces, here goes: I’m going to rank the Giants players. Every one loves lists. I love lists. So, let’s make a big ol’ list of Giants players and rank them. Sound good? Good.

We’ll start on the bottom and work our way up. There are 65 players on the Giants roster, including guys on injured reserve.  Because 65 is a weird number, the first ranking will have  bit more. From then on, 5 a day. Are you ready? I know I am. Let’s do this.

65.Brian Witherspoon, CB

Signed for the last game of the season. Said to have return ability.

64. Jake Ballard, TE

The sometimes third tight end is nothing more than a blocker.

63. Adrian Tracy, OLB

He hasn’t played a game, due to injury. Hard to evaluate him

62. Alex Hall, DE

He’s been waived and picked up by the Giants. He’s a fringe player.

61. Jamon Meredith, OL

Don’t know him? Don’t feel bad. Meredith was a waiver wire pickup who’s bounced around the league.

60. Michael Johnson, S

The former starter has dealt with injuries. He’s no longer what he was, and is lost in a crowded defensive backfield.

59.  Mitch Petrus, OG

Hasn’t played much, but does have potential.

58. Duke Calhoun, WR

Picked at the end of camp over Derek Hagan because of his gunner ability. Didn’t make much of an impact as a gunner.

57. Brian Jackson, CB

Maybe better known for his stint on Hard Knocks with the Jets. Have some special teams ability.

56. Bruce Johnson, CB

He surprised in his rookie season, but hasn’t really done anything since and is oft injured.

55. Michael Coe, CB

Did a decent job on special teams, but that’s all he is right now.

54. Darius Reynaud, RB/KR

He was awful as a kick and punt returner. Just awful.

53. Phil Dillard, LB

Injured a lot last season, so needs to stay healthy and make some plays

52. Mike Clayton, WR

Had a 1,000 yard season with Tampa, but for some reason, is not the same player.

51. Devin Thomas, WR

The former high pick has potential, but at the very least, could be a special teams stud.

50. DJ Ware, RB

Has had opportunities, but hasn’t done much. Injuries, better guys ahead of him, have hurt.

49.  Madison Hedgecock, FB

Was great in the Super Bowl run. Not so much anymore.

48. Jim Sorgi, QB

Injury got the best of him before we could really see him.

47. Ramses Barden, WR

Has shown flashes, but needs consistency.

46. Gerris Wilkinson, LB

He’s shown flashes, but inconsistency and injuries have relegated him to a special teams role.

45. Adam Koets, OL

Hasn’t done enough to warrant being placed higher, but in a few games last year at center he was surprisingly  good.

    Pretty spot on with your rankings except, I wouldnt put Ramses Barden so low on this list and I would put Reynaud as #65, he serves no purpose on this or any other NFL team. I would go out there and give a fair catch sign for a fifth of what he’s getting. Im in an adult flag football league in NJ and dont think I would do any worse than him

    cruz he’s a perfact fit in our line up. Great hands and run good routes. He need to be part of our rotation. Does a better job on wide flank but might be be a master in the slot. Have the coaches work with him? Does him blocking need work or is him strenth to below average
