Will the Giants find an off-ball linebacker to shore up the middle of their defense?
Draft season is finally here for the New York Giants — well, if we’re being honest, it’s been here for quite some time. But now there are no pesky games to worry about and we can concentrate on the draft full time.
The Big Blue Big Board’s look at the various position groups in the 2019 NFL Draft rolls on, and we have finally come to the linebacker position.
This is an interesting draft for the linebacker position, and finding hidden gems might be the key to this position group. The Giants certainly need both upgrades and depth at the linebacker position, the question is whether or not they are able to find any in this draft.
In this podcast we discuss
- Off-ball linebackers vs. EDGE players
- How the linebacker position has changed
- Prospects to watch:
– Mack Wilson (Alabama)
– Devin White (LSU)
– Devin Bush (Michigan)
– Bobby Okereke (Stanford)
– Troy Dye (Oregon)
