Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!
The Giants did very little to supplement the loss of pass-rusher Olivier Vernon this offseason. Drafting Oshane Ximines and signing Markus Golden, a player that hasn’t seen a productive season in three years, ultimately creates more question marks than bonafide answers.
However, one player that really intrigues me is Lorenzo Carter. Going into his second season, there’s reason to believe 2019 could be a breakout year for the former Georgia Bulldog.
After earning four sacks, 10 quarterback hits, and seven tackles for a loss last season, the expectations for the lanky pass-rusher have grown. His elite athleticism and bend around the edge give him a unique advantage, but he will need to further develop his moves to fully reach his potential.
The 2019 season should give him the perfect opportunity to show what he’s learned after a year of NFL experience. The Giants are hoping he can at least replicate the production of Vernon and the 11 games he played last year. If Carter could collect seven sacks, 21 QB hits, and five tackles for a loss, I would say it would have been a successful campaign.
