Pick 29 – New York Giants
ILB – #33 – Ohio State
6’2” 240 lbs
Laurinaitis’s (Disclaimer: We here at Korked Bats are not responsible for the crapping of your pants due to the mere sight of this guy. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.) instincts hedge him into the first round of this years draft. He’s got a great ability to understand blocking schemes and beat offensive linemen to positions. He has yet to miss time with an injury which is an attractive attribute for a team that will continually go deep in the playoffs. He’s a great open field tackler. He’s got the ability to stick so close to RB’s that he could braid their hair.
DE/OLB – #93 – Georgia Tech
6’7” 259 lbs
Johnson is the best specimen at the combine this year. This 6’7” beast is just that. He comes off the ball much like a young Javon Kearse. His best attribute is his speed and ability to chase down the LOS. He is the hybrid type you might hear about that the NFL will look to translate – due his speed – into a DeMarcus Ware type DE/OLB.
The Giants will look for someone to play a role. They’ve got enough superstars that shoot themselves. Another great linebacker will help put that defense back in the top of the league – much like the championship squad.
Sunday’s the sabbath. See ya Monday folks.
Monday on Korked Bats:
Pick 28 – Philadelphia Eagles (From Carolina)
