DL – Dexter Lawrence
Arguably the foundational centerpiece of the Giants’ defensive line, Lawrence has met or exceeded any expectations put out for him when he was chosen No. 17 overall in 2019.
Consistently among the Giants’ highest-graded defenders, Lawrence has 65 career tackles, 4.5 sacks, and already has two sacks through the first half of this season.
Lawrence is a dominant run-stopper, but an even better interior pass-rusher, who entered Monday night with a 77.5 pass-rush grade from Pro Football Focus after producing 13 pressures and nine hurries to go with his two sacks.
As he continues to improve, Lawrence is going to be the type of player that keeps offensive coordinators and offensive line coach awake on Saturday nights.
