This is a big man and it could also fill a big concern. The Giants defense was abysmal against the run last year and quite frankly could use a body like Phillips to plug up the middle of the field.

After Johnathan Hankins, the Giants are very mediocre at the position. Cullen Jenkins, Markus Kuhn and Jay Bromley aren’t what you would call every down players, and neither is free agent pickup Kendrick Ellis.

Even though Phillips projects more as a nose tackle in a 3-4 defense he’s still known widely as an excellent run defender. At this point you can’t go wrong with taking someone with that phase of their game figured out.
