GM Dave Gettleman said a number of times the team didn’t have enough defensive play makers last season, and would have won more games during a 5-11 season if it could have made some late-game stops.After trading away Olivier Vernon, and losing Landon Collins, Kerry Wynn, Josh Mauro, Mario Edwards and Connor Barwin, you knew the Giants would emphasize defense in the draft.Thus, Gettleman used the 17th overall pick on monstrous defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence and engineered a trade up to select cornerback Deandre Baker with the 30th pick. Both should be instant starters.Here is what Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur said about the two defensive players.Dexter LawrenceGettleman: “We got me a hog mollie! Dexter Lawrence, he might have been the biggest player in the draft, I don’t know. He’s a quality run player and he’s more than just a two-down run player. This kid can push the pocket and he can have an impact on the pass rush. That’s why we took him at 17 and we are thrilled ... He’s versatile http://www.giantsfanshop.com/Dexter-Lawrence-Jersey , he’s got hips, he can flip to rush the passer and we are thrilled to have him.”Shurmur: “Dexter, I was with (Vikings DT) Linval Joseph, who all of you know, in Minnesota and he sort of reminded me of him. He’s sneaky with the pass rush, but he’s really good on first, second down and the run game stuff. Tremendous human being and he’s a big guy and I think you win with big people.”Gettleman on Lawrence’s lack of pass rush productivity in college ...“Here’s what I want you to understand. This is where numbers don’t tell all the story. Defensive tackles can affect the pass rush if they get consistent inside push. How many times have you guys watched a game, and the ends come screaming off the corner, and the quarterback steps up, and there’s nobody there. You get inside pass rush, those ends come screaming off the corner, they’re going to affect it, and if the guy is getting push, the quarterback is going to step up and Dexter will give him a kiss.”On not getting an edge rusher with any of the first three picks ...“Rome wasn’t built in a day. Oh and by the way, (LB) Lorenzo Carter had 5.5 sacks last year.”Deandre BakerGettleman: “The last guy we traded up for we feel is the best cover corner in the draft Daniel Jones Jersey , the kid from Georgia, Deandre Baker. We feel like we got three guys that are going to impact this franchise for a long time.”Shurmur: “Dave did it, he got Deandre Baker. He’s a cover corner. The thing that impressed me most on tape was how stinking competitive he is. He’s very confident and he’s very competitive and I think when he’s faced with a challenge of a good wide out, he’s going to accept the challenge.” Dave Gettleman is looking for an impact defensive lineman, and Oliver could be that guy"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections New York Giants NewsGiants Training Camp 2016Giants vs. Eagles 2015, Week 172019 NFL DraftHouston DL Ed Oliver could be a difference maker for the Giants’ defenseNew,49commentsDave Gettleman is looking for an impact defensive lineman, and Oliver could be that guyEDTShareTweetShareShareHouston DL Ed Oliver could be a difference maker for the Giants’ defenseTroy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsHouston’s Ed Oliver has been one of the most hotly anticipated draft prospects to come out in years, probably since Jadeveon Clowney was drafted in 2014. The 6-foot-2, 285-pound athletic freak has been on the NFL’s radar since he was a coveted high school recruit. He surprised by landing in Houston, but never made any secret of the fact that his goal was to be a top draft pick and play in the NFL. Oliver will finally be drafted this year, and will be one of the first players selected in the 2019 NFL Draft. The New York Giants happen to need difference makers at every level of their defense, and have a general manager with a penchant for selecting defensive tackles. After posting elite jumps at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine and a pro day short shuttle which eclipsed Saquon Barkley’s -- not to mention three years at Houston where he produced despite being out of position -- Oliver should be firmly on the Giants’ radar for the sixth overall selection. MeasurablesProsIncredible athlete. Elite burst, agility, and speed for the position.Surprisingly good power for an undersized tackle.Incredible first step. Consistently the first player moving.Fantastic movement skills. Moves like a player 40 pounds lighter.Plays with good pad level and leverage.Routinely disrupts in the backfield.Productive and disruptive despite being played out of position.Great hustle. Plays with a wide-open motor.ConsNeeds to continue to improve his hand usage. Light and lacks length compared to the position prototype. Prospect VideoWhat They’re Saying - Joe Marino (The Draft Network - Scouting Report) Does He Fit The Giants?Of the “blue chip” players likely to be available when the Giants are selecting at sixth overall Daniel Jones Color Rush Jersey , Ed Oliver might present the best fit and value. His tape can be a bit of a challenge to scout as he was horribly (and mystifyingly) miscast as a 0-technique nose tackle in Houston’s defensive scheme. The fact that he got the production that he did from that position is a testament to his abilities as a disruptive presence on the defensive interior. Oliver is commonly cast as a 3-technique in a 4-3 Under defense, and while some might assume that makes him a bad schematic fit for the Giants, it isn’t an obstacle at all. Not only did the Giants play with a four-man front on the majority of their downs, but Oliver’s power and athleticism more than make up for any lack of length on his part. The purpose of drafting linemen with long arms is to help ensure that your player gets his hands on the other guy first. Oliver’s explosive first step, natural leverage and power, and fluid movement skills should up for the time that a couple inches of arm length would afford. That athleticism also offers a host of possibilities for a creative defensive mind. Not only will it make him a dangerous pass rusher once he is put in position to do so, but it will also allow him to rush from all over the defensive front or even drop into a shallow zone to create confusion on the offensive line. Oliver is not yet a finished product, and he will need coaching -- particularly in his technique and hand usage to help finish rushes. There was also an incident where he got into a dust-up with Houston’s (since fired) head coach. The argument started when Oliver sat out the game after suffering a knee injury the week before, and opted to wear a jacket on the sideline. Houston’s coach didn’t want his players wearing jackets on the sideline and an argument ensued. Oliver fits the Giants’ defense, regardless of which sub-package or alignment they happen to be in, and should present good value, even at the sixth overall pick. The bigger question is whether or not a 280 pound defensive tackle is too small for Dave Gettleman, or whether Oliver will be selected by a team drafting in front of the Giants.
