With the New York Giants' season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles meaning absolutely nothing, they should give several young guys some extended run. It's time to see what these guys can really do on an NFL field. There is nothing to lose here and could help the evaluation process.

Bromley has seen more playing time than some would have anticipated thanks to the Johnathan Hankins injury earlier this season. He should see a bulk of the plays on Sunday over guys like Cullen Jenkins and Barry Cofield just to see what he has for a full game. He has shown some signs that he can be a useful DT rotation piece.

Hart saw some playing time when the Giants had injuries on the offensive line, but he went back to the bench when they were recovered. He should start and see the bulk of the playing time at right tackle on Sunday instead of Marshall Newhouse. Hart could be a hidden gem.

For some reason, when the Giants were struggling to find a running game, they ignored Darkwa who looked to be one of the better options. In fairness, Rashad Jennings has been running great the last few games and deserved the bulk of the carries. However, we know what he is, and the Giants should give Darkwa 20 or more carries against the Eagles to see what he can do as a lead back.

Odighizuwa has been on the Giants' designated to return IR for most of his rookie season. He is eligible to be activated this weekend, but it has not yet been announced if he will or not. There is no reason not to activate him for one game just so he can get some run before his lost rookie season is over.

Davis came in as a raw rookie, but he earned a spot with a strong preseason. However, he has been a healthy inactive a lot of late. Even last week saw a practice squad player activated to replace OBJ before Davis was. There is no reason why Ben Edwards, Hakeem Nicks or Myles White should see more playing time than Davis on Sunday. You have to see what you have there if you're the Giants.
