    What do we do about the D-Line?

    Hi All!

    So we got JPP, who may not be himself ever again. MK looked like he was on a morphine drip the entire year, and Jenkins whose best years are likely long gone. Who the heck are we going to have to collapse pockets and put QBs on their butts? Is the answer no-one? Is this why we went so hard on a new secondary? What do you guy's think of our choices? We can't let offenses push us around like 2013!

    Cheers!

    I think that it is a possibility that NYG trade up to the 2nd overall pick from St.Louis to get Clowney. What they'll give up.. not sure maybe another Eli Manning type trade deal. It should most def show some balls.

    Whoever we get, we need to get back to blitzing. We don't need to have 4 JPP's on the line. We just need serviceable players to do their job by designing better schemes. Just bringing 4 guys every play isn't going to work very often. This is what irritates me about Fewell.

    When you invest premium picks in the position like the Giants did with Hankins (2nd) and Moore (3rd), at some point you have to definitively find out if they can play. And this is the year they find out about these two guys.

    It's impossible to have "sure things" at every position. Not when you have a salary cap. All teams have a couple of positions where they have questions and they just hope that they put enough potential talent there that it works out and the position is productive.

    Every team is relying on either a young player to break out or a vet to bounce back and that's pretty much where the giants are with the DL.

    They're hoping that JPP's down production last year was health related, and being healthy will bring him back. I personally also think he was much more productive playing on the strong side (where tuck played) than the weak side.

    They're hoping that having a 2nd year back at the position helps Kiwi become more productive.

    Jenkins was a good player for us last year, he's probably the one player on the DL that they're the most confident on what they're going to get from him.

    I don't think they invest any premium picks on the DL this season, they did it last year in preparation for this moment. I think they wait until after the draft and look at some additional vets to bring in to bolster the position.

    Patterson was a guy that came late last offseason and he was very solid, as was rogers (though I think he's done). There are still a number of vet DE's that can be had on low end deals that can give some good snaps.

    So, I think they have options on the DL, they just don't know yet quite what each guy will bring.
    All Hail The New York Giants!!
