The New York Giants have been very active this free agency period, finally nailing down a starting left tackle for quarterback Eli Manning. Nate Solder is a huge pick up from New England, and will solidify a Giants offensive line that really struggled last season. With the team’s first round pick, they should look to the defensive line, and bring in Bradley Chubb of N.C. State.
Already this offseason, the Giants let go of Jason Pierre-Paul, so that move definitely leaves a void to be filled. Chubb could fill that void and more, as he is the best defensive player in this draft class. New York will look to make a statement in Pat Shurmur’s first season as head coach, so my expectation is they do not draft a quarterback No. 2 unless Darnold falls to them.
Chubb is as explosive an edge rusher as there is in this draft, and may be the best in the last two years. He would fit nicely on a defensive line that already has the likes of Snacks Harrison and Olivier Vernon. The Giants are not going to be a 3-13 team again in 2018, and Chubb could give them the pass rush they need to be a legitimate threat in the NFC East this Fall.
