The 2024 NY Giants Edge Room features a compelling mix of talent and potential, headlined by Brian Burns. Burns, at 26 years old and standing 6’5” tall at 250 lbs, was the 16th overall pick in 2019 from Florida State. In 2023, he delivered solid stats with 50 tackles, 8 sacks, 16 tackles for loss, 18 QB hits, 2 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovery, earning a 73.8 PFF grade. A two-time Pro Bowler, Burns was acquired in an offseason trade and is now facing questions about whether his $30M per year contract is justified. With his high ceiling and a change of scenery, 

Kayvon Thibodeaux, just 23 years old and measuring 6’5” and 258 lbs, was the 5th overall pick in 2022 from Oregon. His 2023 stats include 50 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 12 tackles for loss, 16 QB hits, 4 pass deflections, 3 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovery. Despite a strong sack performance last season, many of his sacks came against weaker competition. The addition of Brian Burns could help Thibodeaux reach new heights by diverting more attention from offensive lines. Furthermore, the new defensive coordinator, Shane Bowen, may implement schemes that better suit Thibodeaux's skills compared to former DC Wink Martindale.

Azeez Ojulari, turning 24 in June and standing 6’3” and 240 lbs, was a 2nd-round pick in 2021 from Georgia. His 2023 season included 11 games, 7 starts, 16 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 3 tackles for loss, 7 QB hits, and 1 fumble recovery, earning a 51.8 PFF grade. Despite showing flashes of talent, Ojulari has been plagued by injuries, leading some fans to label him a bust. Given his draft day injury concerns, his current situation is not entirely surprising.

Boogie Basham, 26 years old and 6’3” and 274 lbs, was a 2nd-round pick in 2021 from Wake Forest. His 2023 stats include 13 games and 11 tackles, with a 55 PFF grade. 

Tomon Fox, also 26 years old and 6’3” and 260 lbs, was undrafted in 2022 from North Carolina. His 2023 stats include 1 game and 1 tackle, with a 57.5 PFF grade. In 2022, he played 16 games, starting 1, and recorded 24 tackles, 1 sack, 3 tackles for loss, and 1 QB hit. Fox has shown potential but remains largely unproven.

Benton Whitley, 25 years old and 6’3” and 260 lbs, was undrafted from Princeton in 2022. In 2023, he played with both NYG and MIN, appearing in 4 games with 1 pass deflection and 1 fumble recovery. 

Additionally, the Giants might consider picking up defensive lineman Bravvion Roy, recently released by the Ravens. At 26 years old and 6’1” and 330 lbs, Roy was a 6th-round pick in 2020 from Baylor. His career includes 45 games with 15 starts. In 2022, he played 13 games, starting 4, and recorded 17 tackles, 1 QB hit, 1 interception, and 3 pass deflections. Roy spent all of last season on the Ravens practice squad. 

In summary, the 2024 NY Giants Edge Room is a mix of proven talent and potential, with Brian Burns and Kayvon Thibodeaux leading the charge. Azeez Ojulari, Boogie Basham, Tomon Fox, and Benton Whitley provide valuable depth and competition.
