4. A Great Middle Linebacker

The Giants were able to restructure Jon Beason’s contract which is a good thing. When healthy he is the QB of the defense, a leader both by example and vocally. Beason is not a long term answer at the position. Considering his injury history, the Giants may want to find his replacement sooner rather than later.

The best course of action for the Giants to address this need would be to target Eric Kendricks, Denzel Perryman or Stephone Anthony with their second round pick. Each of these three options has the athletic ability and the tackling prowess to be a leader for the defense for years to come.

The Giants hands are pretty much tied, they can’t spend an overwhelming amount of money at the linebacker position. It is however one of the most, if not the most important position on the defensive side of the football. The Giants should look to the draft to fix this need.
