NY Giants third-round pick: Michigan DT Kris Jenkins

The Giants still need some depth for the defensive line, and a stud from Michigan would be a great addition. Kris Jenkins has NFL written into his DNA, as his father was former defensive tackle Kris Jenkins and his uncle, Cullen Jenkins, was not only in the NFL, but he spent three seasons with the Giants as well from 2013-2015.

After Leonard Williams got traded, the Giants pass-rush and the defensive front up the middle took a hit. Other players tried to fill that void, but the loss of Williams was felt, so the selection of the younger Jenkins and placing him aside Dexter Lawrence should help matters.

The Michigan star, who is listed at 6-3 and 306 pounds, can bring some of that Jenkins family name just like his father and uncle did. He can also bring some of that championship swagger he saw when he helped the Michigan Wolverines win the National Championship back in January.

He can not only line up and play in the middle, but he can also play any one of the defensive line positions, whether it be inside at tackle or over at end, which could really make him extremely useful and very dangerous to try and stop, especially with Lawrence getting so much of the attention from his size and dominance.
