#12 New York Giants: Trent Murphy, DE/OLB Stan

Rory’s Take: I have had a guard going here fairly consistently, but with the opportunity to add to what was an inconsistent pass rush last season the Giants will act on it.

Chase’s Take: Murphy looked good in the Rose Bowl even if the Cardinal got upset by Michigan State, his lack of world class athleticism may see him fall on the big boards come post-Combine, but that shouldn’t matter because Murphy is a beast who has proven in college that he will be tough to deal with on the defensive line for years to come.
