Where to begin? This amount of player movement seen during this year's NFL offseason is hard to comprehend.

A Super Bowl-winning quarterback, a former league MVP, a former Defensive Player of the Year and a litany of elite wide receivers are now with new teams. They're just the starting point with the swath of additions that occurred since the beginning of the new league year.

Those mentioned should help their respective situations, though some moves proved to be better than others based on potential impact and cost.

For example, the acquisitions of Deshaun Watson to the Cleveland Browns, Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders and Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins were excellent on-field additions. However, their respective teams paid the price to acquire such high-profile performers.

Others found better value based on availability within a volatile market. Seven moves stick out as the best that a whirlwind offseason had to offer.


7. Giants Select Kayvon Thibodeaux, Evan Neal with Top-10 Picks

More uncertainty swirled at the top of this year's draft class than any in recent memory. No standout quarterback deserved to be selected among the top-15 picks, let alone No. 1 overall. Another player at a different premium position didn't run the table as the class' premier athlete, as Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney once did. 

However, two names tended to be near the top of every board throughout the process, and both landed with the New York Giants. The initial portion of the draft couldn't have fallen better for new general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll. 

New York chose Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux and Alabama offensive tackle Evan Neal with the fifth and seventh overall picks, respectively. 

"At one point, Neal and Thibodeaux were both considered potential top overall picks, and the Giants ended up with both of them," an anonymous executive told The Athletic's Mike Sando. "They are both premier positions, so it is hard to fault them. Assuming they could not trade back, they did well with those two."

In fact, Bleacher Report's Scouting Department ranked Thibodeaux and Neal as the class' top two overall prospects on the final draft board. No team had a better start to its 2022 draft, and first-round picks are where difference-makers are generally found. 

Thibodeaux can immediately provide an edge presence alongside an already tough defensive front, while Neal can bump over to right tackle, opposite Andrew Thomas, and give the Giants a strong pair of bookend tackles. 


6. Los Angeles Rams Sign WR Allen Robinson

The Los Angeles Rams could have sat back and basked in their Super Bowl title without making the necessary moves to get better. 

The organization chose to go a different route at wide receiver instead of trying to re-sign Odell Beckham Jr., who is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in Super Bowl LVI. The Rams pursued a bigger, slightly younger and currently healthier wide receiver in free agency, signing Allen Robinson to a three-year, $46.5 million deal. 

Robinson entered free agency as the top available wide receiver. When healthy and paired with a competent quarterback, he is fantastic at working outside the numbers and down the field. He still posted back-to-back 1,100-plus-yard receiving campaigns before missing five games last season with a balky hamstring. 

"They got a bigger player in Robinson, more range when you throw fades, and you got a guy who doesn't have a bad knee," an executive told Sando. "That is great for the Rams because they get a draft pick (as part of the Robert Woods trade) and they get a little upgrade in some regards."

From a financial perspective, Robinson didn't come close to some of the numbers thrown around the last two-and-a-half months. The eight-year veteran is now the 21st highest-paid wide receiver based on average annual salary. Even if the high-profile trades with accompany big-money deals are taken out of the question, Chris Godwin, Mike Williams, Brandin Cooks and Christian Kirk received significantly more for their respective extensions or free-agent deals. 

Apparently, the Rams got a Super Bowl discount while acquiring another standout target for Sean McVay's offense.
