With their third-round pick, 66th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected Lorenzo Carter, an outside linebacker from Georgia.

In his prospect profile of Carter, Chris wrote:

Given his versatility, athleticism, and talent -- as well as their own glaring need -- the Giants should be keenly interested in Carter. He could be a particularly strong fit in Bettcher’s “multiple” and aggressive defense. That defense should allow him to take full advantage of his impressive and varied physical tools, as well as give the Giants both the speed rusher and second level coverage they have lacked since the days of Osi Umenyiora and Michael Boley.
