Is Michel a better fit for the Giants’ backfield than his former teammate Nick Chubb?

The New York Giants desperately need to rebuild their offense. Part of that is rediscovering their long-dormant running game, which not only depends on rebuilding their offensive line, but might also require an investment in the running back position.

Jonathan Stewart can’t be considered as anything more than a veteran presence and mentor to young backs Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins. And while they have each shown flashes of promise, neither is particularly proven at the NFL level. Neither would be a rookie, but in a rich running back class, the Giants could look to add more talent and competition to the running back room.

The Georgia Bulldogs boast a talented duo of running backs in Sony Michel and Nick Chubb, riding the pair to the National Championship game. Though Chubb has been the more heralded prospect, Michel might actually be the better fit for the Giants under Pat Shurmur.
