Coming off another disappointing season that saw the New York Giants miss the playoffs, the 2014 NFL Draft becomes even more important for the team. If the Giants really want to return to greatness, not only will they need to nail the first round, but they must also pick up sleepers later in the draft. That said, here are five draft sleepers who are a perfect fit for the Giants.

Justin Pugh is firmly entrenched at the right tackle position for the Giants, however, at left tackle, Will Beatty has been a disappointment. Antonio Richardson is raw right now, but with better coaching at the next level, Richardson has the physical talent to succeed.

The Giants' interior offensive line was an absolute disaster in 2013, however, by picking up Russell Bodine in the draft, the Giants are shoring up at least one of their guard positions, as the big man from North Carolina is ready to start from day one. Bodine won't wow you with his physical attributes, however, he has the drive to succeed.

3. Tyler Larsen

The third offensive lineman on this list, Tyler Larsen has been overlooked throughout the entire draft process, however, the Utah State product has the potential to become a solid starter. By snagging Larsen on day three of the draft, the Giants would be adding a center that has the talent to start right away.

2. Adrian Hubbard

The outside linebacker position has long been a weakness for the Giants, however, with the selection of Adrian Hubbard, that could all change. Hubbard didn't quite live up to expectations while with Alabama, however, he has the physical talent and potential to become a star.

Brandon Myers was a huge disappointment last year for the Giants, and as a result, the team is already searching for his replacement. Arthur Lynch doesn't have the elite physical tools of someone like Eric Ebron, but Lynch is the type of reliable target quarterbacks love.
