Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Gallman had a breakout season with Saquon Barkley on the sidelines. With the team signing Devontae Booker over the offseason, Gallman’s time in the Big Apple is likely over as he could be following Weston Richburg’s path from Giants to 49ers.

3 likeliest landing spots for Micah Parsons - The Draft Network

NEW YORK GIANTS (NO. 11 OVERALL)

The Giants are another team who I think could go defense early, although I could easily justify the team selecting a receiver or an offensive lineman. If the team does decide to address the defensive side of the football, I think Parsons will be the pick. The Giants could use another inside linebacker to play next to Blake Martinez and Parsons could be the missing piece to a defense that actually did show some promise in 2020. Defensive Coordinator Patrick Graham is a rising star in the league and someone I could see being a head coach in the near future. Graham utilizes an odd front scheme and likes to rush his backers which plays into Parsons’ skill set perfectly.

One of the things that really stood out when evaluating Parsons was his timing and explosiveness as a blitzing linebacker. He is easily able to time the snap and get past offensive linemen with very little challenge, and he closes violently on the quarterback with an outstanding ability to finish. I would love to see how Graham uses Parsons and I think this would be a really good fit for both the team and player.

Parsons is, quite possibly, the best defender in this year’s draft class. An athletic three-down linebacker with solid tackling and closing speed, Parsons would slot in nicely in the Giants defense. The team has not taken a linebacker in Round 1 since Carl Banks in 1984, but could Parsons’ talent be enough to change that?
