Walt Aikens Authentic Jersey The Giants got their most extensive look this week at Bradley Chubb, who will be on the board for them the night of April 26 when it comes time for the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft. The top defensive player available is unquestionably in the running for the Giants, even though this defensive-end prospect would actually be called an outside linebacker in new coordinator James Bettcher’s system.
I think each and every down we might look different on defense, Bettcher said. I can’t tell you today who we’re going to be on defense and really what Michael Carter-Williams Jersey we’re going to look like until we get through training camp, until we get into meetings, until we actually get on the field.

The Giants are in the process of putting together their draft board and will not have a single character issue or off-the-field concern with Chubb, who is as clean a prospect as there is in this draft. As far as on the field, his work is extensive (four years, 40 games) and productive (20 sacks, 44 tackles for loss the past two seasons).
Chubb can fit as a classic defensive end on a four-man line and also as an outside linebacker in a defense featuring three down linemen and four linebackers.
If possessing a quarterback is always the priority, finding a way on defense to deal with that quarterback is nearly as crucial to a team’s well-being.
Finding a quarterback in the draft is a dance with the devil, risky and dangerous, often fraught with peril. Scouts and general managers get it wrong as often as they get it right. Locating pass-rushers is an undertaking filled with far less degree of difficulty. Not that they are easy to find, but when they are identified, their rate of success is far greater than the frequency teams hit on unearthing a franchise quarterback.
My job is to get after one of the best players on the field, one of the highest-paid players on the field, Chubb said of zeroing in on quarterbacks. It changes the dynamics of the game. You see in the Super Bowl, sack-caused-fumble ends the game. Take it back to when the Broncos won, Von Miller just going crazy in that game, Super Bowl MVP of that game. This position is such a priority and such a premium in this league, because you’re getting after one of the most important positions.
