In draft classes like that, it can be easy for good players who don’t have eye-popping measurables or flashy games to get lost in the shuffle. But that might create opportunities for teams to find players at good value if they have a solid evaluation and a plan to put those more under-the-radar prospects in position to succeed. Take Boston College’s Zach Allen for instance. There are few players in the draft who are more productive or better at disrupting an offense, but he is not being talked about as an elite, first round prospect. Part of that is due to a game predicated on hustle, but also some athletic limitations leave scouts wondering about his role in the NFL. But given the “multiple” nature of the New York Giants defense, he might just be a natural fit in James Bettcher’s scheme.MeasurablesProsGood size and length.Powerful player, able to stack blockers and drive them into the backfield.Heavy Kareem Martin Jersey , aggressive hands. Shows a wide variety of pass rush moves.Good awareness and football IQDeals well with cut blocks. High revving motor. Absolutely relentless in pursuit. Highly, and consistently, productive. ConsLacks lower-body flexibility to consistently bend the edge.Good but not great first step, occasionally gets caught guessing.High motor player, but range is limited.Prospect VideoWhat They’re Saying - Jon Ledyard (The Draft Network - Scouting Report)Does He Fit The Giants?Allen does fit the Giants’ defense, but he is something of a projection there as a prospect.The Giants run a “multiple” defense that is primarily a 1-gap front -- that is, front seven players are generally only responsible for a single gap, and that is what Allen projects to best. However, Boston College’s defense is generally a 4-3 front, with Allen playing the 7-technique defensive end. For the Giants he would be a 5-technique who would move inside on nickel downs. While Allen does project well to that kind of alignment, and his tight hips and ankles would likely limit him as a 4-3 defensive end Womens Robert Thomas Jersey , it would be a new position. But he should be able to make the transition fairly seamlessly. Allen has a good first step to go with plenty of power to put blockers back on their heels, as well as heavy, active hands to keep offensive linemen from locking in on his chest plate. He doesn’t quite have the play strength to be a two-gapping lineman, dealing with a pair of blockers, but he does have enough strength to make plays while being blocked.Allen has first round production, with 161 tackles, 30.5 tackles for a loss, 10.5 sacks, 10 passes defensed, and a pair of interceptions over the last two seasons, but in a stellar front seven class Cody Latimer Jersey , he could slip to the second round. There is a feeling for many outside the Giants organization that the team needs to move on from quarterback Eli Manning in order to find the consistent success that has eluded them since they beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI in February 2012.While there’s an acknowledgement that Manning won’t be able to play forever, Giants co-owner John Mara, General Manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur have all been adamant that Manning is not holding the Giants back right now. You can add running back Saquon Barkley to that list.Barkley was asked by Taylor Rooks of if he is bothered by criticism of Manning.“Yeah, it bothers me. I’m not going to lie because it’s not his fault,” Barkley said. “He’s not the reason why. We love to put the blame on one person, but it takes 11 men, a team and an organization all together to win.”Anyone who has watched the Giants stumble to eight wins over the last two seasons will tell you that there’s been plenty wrong with the team. Needing help elsewhere and needing better quarterback play aren’t mutually exclusive, however, and the Giants will likely have to address all of it if they are going to find their way to a better place in the standings.
