Ranking the New York Giants’ 2021 NFL draft wants by place
Don’t you imply EDGE rusher, John? No. EDGE rusher signifies to me that the participant is linebacker/defensive finish hybrid that’s inserted into the lineup to go after the quarterback on passing downs. The Giants’ protection isn’t particularly designed for such a participant to exist or flourish.
They shouldn’t use the eleventh general choose on such a participant. In reality, any defensive participant they choose within the first three rounds needs to be one who can play near 100% of the snaps. That means any entrance seven addition needs to be both a linebacker or a defensive lineman. If they will rush the passer then that’s a bonus. On Day 3, they will experiment and seize a go speeding ‘specialist’ in the event that they select.
Yes, Michigan’s Kwity Paye, Jayson Oweh of Penn State and Georgia’s Azeez Ojulari are all tempting however till I understand how their video games are going translate on the professional degree, I can’t take them within the first spherical. If one among them fails to Round 2, then by all means, I’d have to contemplate.
Ideally, Penn State’s Micah Parsons is the defensive participant that will fill an enormous void within the Giants’ entrance seven however he’s not a go rusher by commerce. That doesn’t imply he can’t do it.
