GIANTS HOPE MARVIN AUSTIN IS READY TO CONTRIBUTE (http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/article_external/new_york_giants_hope_marvin_austin_is_ready_to_con tribute/10911812)

"New York Giants (http://www.rantsports.com/new-york-giants/) defensive tackle Marvin Austin (https://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.rantsports.com/cleveland-browns/2012/01/28/north-carolina-de-quinton-coples-ups-nfl-draft-stock-at-senior-bowl/&sa=U&ei=tZjHT4TwK4iQgwek8aD7DQ&ved=0CBcQFjAJ&clie nt=internal-uds-cse&usg=AFQjCNF23fJ6zXIFTOrbNjBdwWX8JMUoSg) has not exactly had it easy
in the football world the past couple of years. He was suspended his senior
year at North Carolina after being
found guilty by the NCAA of receiving improper benefits. That scared many teams
away from Austin who was considered to possess top-10 pick potential. However,
the Giants took a flyer on him in the second round of the 2011 NFL (http://www.rantsports.com/nfl/) Draft in the hopes of getting the
player from his junior year at North Carolina. However, Austin suffered a torn
pectoral muscle in a preseason game against the Chicago Bears (http://www.rantsports.com/chicago-bears/) that ended his season
before it began.


Now, Austin is fully recovered and looking
to make an impression on the team that took a chance on him. Austin will be
asked to contribute this season. The New York Giants defensive tackle depth
consists of Austin, Chris Canty,
Shaun Rogers, Linval Joseph, second year players Dwayne Hendricks, and Martin Parker, and rookie Markus Kuhn. The inside of the defensive line
consists of three solid players and several unknowns and Austin who has the
ability to be the best of the group. Head coach Tom Coughlin and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell are hoping that Austin has
learned enough of the defense to become a steady member of the rotation on the
inside with Canty, Rogers, and Joseph.</p>


Austinís potential is why the Giants
drafted him. It isnít often that someone with his ability drops to the second
round. However, it will be up to Austin to show the Giants coaching staff that
he can not only be a reliable member of a defensive tackle rotation but that he
can be the star that everyone envisions. Coming back after two years away from
football is not easy. Austin will surely be rusty and will take some time to
get into playing shape, even with training camp and OTAís.</p>


Austin is big, 6-2, 309 pounds, strong (38
reps in the bench press), and fast (4.84 40-yard dash at the combine). He has
all the physical tools a coach looks for in a defensive tackle. He has violent
hands that keep offensive linemen off balance and a quickness that can put him
into an opponentís backfield in a flash. To put it simply, Marvin Austin has
the ability to become an elite defensive tackle. He just needs to stay healthy
and turn potential into reality. Starting this July he will finally get his
chance to prove it."</p>

If he can live up to his potential this year this defense could be very good. They already do a goo job of getting pressure from their ends. This guy could cause all kinds of trouble up the middle.

We have so much potential on our defensive line, if only everyone could stay healthy!

Not sure if you guys got a chance to see Marvin in college, but the kid is a beast. I've been saying for months, Marvin is going to be the surprise player for us this year. He's a stud.

Marvin/Hixon- bust out players this year.

I'm an NC State fan born and raised. I had to watch him, and Nicks, do work against the ACC. He's good.

Why would you give up on a 23 year old gifted athlete?

Not only do we have Austin and hopefully he contributes but lets not forget we also added shaun rogers... i think that was a solid move.

Excited either way.
