How the New York Giants might utilize Elerson Smith in his rookie season

The New York Giants added help on defense in the second half of this year’s draft. Four of the Giants’ six draft picks were spent on the defensive side of the ball in 2021. Two of those picks were invested into edge rushers. The Giants had a clear need on the edge entering the draft and addressed it with two solid, high-value draft picks.

The first edge rusher that the Giants landed was Azeez Ojulari in round two. Many expect Azeez to be an instant-impact starter on New York’s defense and a huge boost to the team’s pass-rush.
