Giants 2021 draft: 5 Running backs who could be Day 3 targets

Losing Saquon Barkley in Week 2 of the 2020 season proved to be a devastating turn of events for the New York Giants, who finished with the NFL’s 31st-ranked offense in points scored and yards earned. The dynamic third-year back is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for the 2021 season while the Giants contemplate picking up his fifth-year-option in the beginning of May.

Wayne Gallman, a fourth-round selection by Jerry Reese in 2017, filled in valiantly for Barkley. Gallman, along with Devonta Freeman and Alfred Morris as a spell back, were able to help the Giants rushing attack crack the top 20 by averaging 110 rushing yards per game.
