New York Giants: Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

Current top pick: No. 11

If the New York Giants decide to stick with Daniel Jones at quarterback, they may turn their attention to the defensive side of the ball in the draft. It was the team's strength in 2020, but key defenders Leonard Williams, Dalvin Tomlinson and Kyler Fackrell are scheduled to hit free agency.

Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons is one of the best overall defenders in this draft class, and he could boost New York's defense in multiple areas.

"The Penn State linebacker earned the second-highest run-defense grade we’ve ever given to a true sophomore. What the 240-plus-pounder can do as a blitzer is going to be a weapon in the NFL," Renner wrote.

Parsons didn't play in 2020, but the season before, he amassed 109 total tackles, five sacks, four passes defended and 14 tackles for loss. He's the sort of all-around linebacker who can be the new face of New York's defense for years to come.

It was smarter. So the fact that you just didn’t have guys holed up in a facility for hours on end and just killing time, the fact that we are actually able to do things via teleconference and Skype and Zoom, it’s all about being smarter. …

“We’ll continue to talk to the players about the things that they think were a better and smarter way of playing football and I think some of those things, most of things don’t have anything to do with COVID.”
