A hog mollie for the defensive line finishes the Giants’ draft
The New York Giants selected Syracuse defensive tackle Chris Slayton on Saturday in Round 7 of the 2019 NFL Draft, 245th overall. Slayton is a 6-foot-3, 307-pounder. The selection marks the Giants’ final pick of the draft.
In his draft guide, Dane Brugler of The Athletic says:
Slayton is a power-packed lineman with the toughness and demeanor required for the position. However, he doesn’t display disruptive traits and his suspect instincts and shed skills might limit his ability to two-gap. Overall, Slayton isn’t a souped-up athlete or rangy playmaker, but he possesses the NFL-quality power that will give him the chance to earn a spot in an NFL defensive line rotation.
