Running Back: Cowboys
Outside of Barkley, the Giants don’t have much depth. Matt Brieda is their current backup, who isn’t as good as Pollard. Once again, having Pollard makes Dallas’ RB room better than others.
Kenny Golladay is one of the most overrated players in football. He battled injuries and was largely ineffective last season. The same thing can be said for Sterling Shepard, who’s been battling injuries for a few seasons.
Kadarius Toney has the potential to be great but hasn’t received the necessary targets to do so. CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup don’t have these issues and adding James Washington and Jalen Tolbert didn’t hurt either.
Offensive Line: Cowboys
The Giants’ offensive line is tricky to analyze. Tackle Evan Neal will become a good player, fellow tackle Andrew Thomas took a massive leap from 2020 to 2021 and Mark Glowinski was a decent pickup at guard.
But the Cowboys have Tyron Smith and Zack Martin, two guys way more established than anyone on the Giants’ offensive line. New York has guys with potential but still with much room to grow.
Defensive Line: Giants
Once again, Micah Parsons is what gives the Cowboys this position.
Blake Martinez spent most of last season hurt, but he's still a good player. However, he can’t compare to Parsons and the Giants’ lack depth outside of Martinez. Leighton Vander Esch gives Dallas the depth that New York doesn’t have.
This would be closer if the Giants still had James Bradberry, but he’s gone now. Adoree’ Jackson is now the new No. 1 cornerback, with the Giants again lacking depth outside their primary starter.
Xavier McKinney and Julian Love aren’t a lousy tandem, but Hooker and Kearse make up the better duo.
