NFL Draft: Giants take Clint Sintim at 45

The New York Giants selected Clint Sintim, OLB, Virginia with their first pick of the second round, 45th overall.

From Mocking the Draft.

Sintim possesses prototypical outside linebacker size for the NFL. A good athlete, Sintim was a pass rush specialist for Virginia, finishing his career with 27 sacks. Has played with his hand down in 4-3 sets. Strong and physical, Sintim does a nice job beating blocks. A very aggressive player who always works hard on the field. Very competitive. Strong in pursuit. An experienced, four-year starter who has a good bit of intelligence.

At 6-foot-3, 254 pounds Sintim possesses the size and speed to --possibly -- become the playmaking outside linebacker the Giants have been looking for.
