New York Giants Initial 53-man Roster Projection

The Giants have one more preseason game to go, but here’s a look at who we think might make the roster barring anything significant happening.

When it comes to making roster decisions, New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said it best.


“Cutdown day sucks,” he said. “It really does because you develop relationships with players, you see how hard they work, and to bring a player up to your office and let them know that we’re going in a different direction or they didn’t make the team, you get a lot of different reactions and I completely understand it.


“They’ve laid everything they have on the line, and it’s a sports business, but it’s a people business. If you have relationships with people, that’s not easy. It’s not easy for me.”


No, it’s not, and not just for the coaches who have to make the decisions but also for those of us who attempt to project a 53-man roster. But here we are anyway with our second-to-last initial 53-man roster projection.

We will revisit this projection after the Giants conclude their preseason schedule Saturday night against the Jets.


DeVito has played well this summer to show he belongs. Out of 22 quarterbacks with at least 40 dropbacks, his 68.6 completion percentage ranks sixth in the league this preseason. That aside, I still think he goes to the practice squad, despite the new rule that allows teams to dress a third quarterback that doesn’t count against the active gameday roster.


With injuries at other spots on the roster, carrying a third quarterback when you have two healthy bodies in front of him doesn’t make sense.
