#12 New York Giants: Ra’Shede Hageman, DT Minn

Rory’s Take: The Giants’ defense revolves around the pass rush and what they have lacked recently is a continuous pass rush threat inside. Hageman is downright dominate at times and can be that guy the pushes the pocket and makes the life of Jason Pierre-Paul easier.

Chase’s Take: New York’s aging defensive ends can no longer fight through whatever blocking scheme opponents throw at them to slow them down like they used to when they were winning Super Bowls. Needing help, bringing in an explosive threat like Hageman in the interior of the defensive line could open things up on the outside and give teams more than enough to think about on the interior as Hageman is one of the best defensive tackle prospects in the draft since the Lions took Fairley/Suh.
