The other end of that Super Bowl defensive line was Justin Tuck, making it almost impossible to focus on just one.

After helping the Giants win the Super Bowl in 2007, Shockey moved on to the New Orleans Saints and won another Super Bowl in 2009.

Saquon Barkley – Running Back – 2018 – present
Drafted by the Giants with the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Barkley’s future looks bright. With an amazing ability to accelerate and great vision, Saquon won NFL rookie of the year honors last year and the Giants will build their offense around him for years to come.
