Fourth Round Pick: Daeshon Hall; Defensive End, Texas A&M
The Giants need some depth along their defensive line. They relied heavily on Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul last season. With Johnathan Hankins leaving as well, adding depth along the offensive line is a must. Hall would be an excellent pick for that reason.
The Giants need players to add depth at defensive tackle with room to grow; Hall fits that bill. He needs some development but has the size and tools to make it work. The Giants would afford him that chance to develop behind two of the best defensive ends in the NFL.
Pass rushing skills are what teams look for in a defensive end, but defending the run is just as important. Hall is already good in that area, as he is arguably a better run defender right now that pass rusher.
Hall has a good motor, which teams will always like. He doesn’t take plays off and plays hard when he is out there. His production dipped some in 2016 with Myles Garrett out of the lineup, but he won’t be the focal point of opponent’s game plans; he would be a complimentary player behind Vernon and Pierre-Paul.
Hall would give the Giants a good developmental player that can help right away. He has a chance to turn into a starter in the NFL if given the time and groomed properly.
