Strong-side Linebacker: Azeez Ojulari
Although Ojulari hasn’t taken a snap in the NFL yet, he is primed to start at the strong-side linebacker position.
As a redshirt freshman at Georgia, he played in 14 games and made 13 starts. He recorded 36 tackles and 5.5 sacks. Last season, he was named second-team-All-SEC and was the defensive MVP of the 2021 Peach Bowl.
There’s a legitimate chance, given the relative youth in the NY Giants’ front-seven, that Ojulari could compete for a starting job during his rookie training camp this summer.
