2nd Round: Eric Kendricks, LB (UCLA)

The UCLA Bruins will forever miss this stud linebacker, Eric Kendricks. Kendricks though will be the perfect addition to the Giants. The Giants cannot depend on the injury prone Jon Beason. Kendricks could also be a long-term answer to the position.

The Giants defense was poor against the run in 2014. In 2015 with Kendricks leading the defense it would be better. Kendricks is a quick linebacker who tackles wonderfully. He always seems to find the football and make a play.

Kendricks had ten or more tackles in all but two games in the 2014 season with the Bruins. Kendricks will help the Giants stop the run, a much-needed help indeed.
