NY Giants 2020 Season: 4 Pleasant Surprises
Tae Crowder was certainly relevant in 2020.
The last pick in the 2020 NFL draft, Tae “Mr. Irrelevant” Crowder certainly put a quick end to that nickname.
In fact, Crowder fully embraced being the 255th and last pick of the NFL draft and turned the “255th pick” and “Mr. Irrelevant” status into a full-blown personal brand. Check that out here!
Back to football, Crowder made his presence felt all over the stat sheet all season long.
Crowder’s first big moment came Week 6 when he scooped and scored a Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen fumble for a 43-yard touchdown return to give the NY Giants’ their first win of the year. Crowder showcased his patience, athleticism, and speed to recover the ball and have the ability to take it back all the way.
The Georgia alum ended his rookie year with 11 appearances and six starts. In that time, he made the most of every opportunity and he racked up 57 tackles, three tackles for a loss, three QB hits, one sack, a pass deflection, and the game-winning fumble recovery for a touchdown in Week 6.
A promising player with unique physical traits, Crowder proved he belonged on NFL fields on Sundays and should stick around for years to come. He is a fun player to watch, as he tenaciously runs sideline-to-sideline chasing down skill players and wreaking havoc.
