Film study: What can LB Micah McFadden bring to Giants’ defense?

The New York Giants drafted Indiana linebacker Micah McFadden at pick No. 146 in the fifth round. McFadden was a two-time team captain for the Hoosiers. Indiana recruited McFadden out of Tampa, Florida, where he was the Florida Player of the year with 211 tackles and 39 for a loss during his final season in high school.

According to 247Sports, McFadden barely cracked the top 2,000 in the 2018 recruiting class. The only two Power-5 scholarships he received were from Indiana and Boston College. McFadden played high school football with the son of Indiana’s head coach Tom Allen, which prompted McFadden to attend the school in Bloomington.
