Dan and Chris’ first look at the 2019 NFL Draft rolls on with the upcoming class of edge rushers.

Ernie Accorsi said it best when he said, “You can never have too many pass rushers.” The best defenses can send athletic edge rushers in waves to overwhelm blockers and disrupt offenses. With the growth of the modern NFL defense away from dogmatic adherence to strictly 4-3 or 3-4 schemes, the designation of “EDGE” for players who specialize in getting into the opposing backfield and have the ability to do so from a 2, 3, or 4-point stance has become popular.

It is also a position the Giants need to address, and make a serious investment at that. Edge rushers are important, and teams rarely come by them cheaply.

We take a look at some of the top EDGE players in the upcoming draft class, including

  • Nick Bosa
  • Josh Allen (EDGE/OLB, Kentucky)
  • Clelin Ferrell (Clemson)
  • Brian Burns (FSU)
  • Montez Sweat (Mississippi State)
  • Jachai Polite (Florida)
  • D’Andre Walker (Georgia)

You can still listen our shows on the 2019 quarterback class (featuring Mark Schofield) as well as last week’s preview of the upcoming offensive line class.
