Only two teams allowed more rushing yards than the Giants did last season, and there wasn’t one that allowed more than the Giants’ 4.9 yards per carry. Led by Jason Pierre-Paul, the Giants D-Line continued to get better and better.
They signed 6-4, 346-pound Kenrick Ellis, a former Jet who will help solidify the Giants defense up the middle. He is known as someone who can take on multiple blockers and occupy the middle of opposing offensive lines. At defensive end, the Giants added former Dallas Cowboy George Selvie to their ranks, signing him as a free agent in March. Selvie is known as a good run defender but also has 10 sacks in his last two seasons.
Good news for the Giants is JPP and Selvie have a history. Both Selvie and Pierre-Paul played at the University of Central Florida. This duo have the potential to dominate this season.
Few things are more valuable to a defense than inside penetration.
