28. New York Giants

Brian Daboll has a tough task ahead of him as a first-year head coach with the New York Giants. The former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator found plenty of success with Josh Allen, which means there will be those expecting him to turn Daniel Jones into a complete starter.

As if that wasn’t a tough enough ask, he has to figure out how to get Saquon Barkley to go from an athletic freak who is a bust at running back to a focal point of an NFL offense. This is without even looking at the underperforming wide receivers on the team or the defense that doesn’t have any real leaders on it.

New York has been struggling for years, and it will take a while to fix what Dave Gettleman did — especially when you realize they have a bad roster and no cap space. Not an ideal combination.

27. Atlanta Falcons

When the Atlanta Falcons lost out on Deshaun Watson, they decided to punt on 2022. They sent Matt Ryan to the Indianapolis Colts for a third-round pick and elected to roll with Marcus Mariota as their starter.

Mariota, who was a bust of a No. 2 overall pick, will have a hard time getting things turned around since there are no receivers of note outside of rookie Drake London. This offense is a major problem and the defense isn’t much better. Clearly, this team is looking toward the draft in 2023 — as they should be.
