The New York Giants have selected South Carolina LB T.J. Brunson in Round 7 of the 2020 NFL Draft, 238th overall.

In his 2020 NFL Draft Guide, Dane Brugler of The Athletic said:

A highly physical yet flawed run defender, Brunson loads up behind his pads as a tackler, but his technique is wild and leads to misses, failing to consistently wrap to finish. His coaches say he works his tail off in the weight room and during practice, but his aggressive nature also leads to in-game penalties (four personal fouls or unsportsmanlike penalties in 2019). Overall, Brunson competes with resolute passion and quick diagnose skills, but his tackling technique, coverage range and play discipline aren’t currently on an NFL level.
