The Giants are seemingly thin at the inside linebacker position ahead of the 2021 season. Blake Martinez is extremely talented and 2020 Mr. Irrelevant Tae Crowder carries potential, but after that, the position group doesn’t possess much — Cam Brown and Carter Coughlin are potentially becoming outside linebackers moreso than anything else.
Thus, Big Blue could target a linebacker at No. 11 overall in the upcoming draft, with Penn State’s Micah Parsons serving as an option.
Prior to opting out of the 2020 season, Parsons was a tackling machine for the Nittany Lions for two consecutive years, having totaled 109 combined tackles during the 2019 campaign.
