Taking a look at TJ Brunson and what he offers the New York Giants as a seventh-round pick:
The New York Giants landed South Carolina inside linebacker TJ Brunson with the 238th overall pick. Another seventh-rounder who can compete for a roster spot and potentially make an impact on special teams.
With South Carolina, Brunson logged 77 total tackles, six tackles for loss, and one interception. As a senior, he comes with experience and knowledge in the middle of the defense.
Brunson is a solid athlete with capable range. He lacks size but doesnâ€™t stray away from matching up with blockers. He has an aggressive mentality that needs to match up to his physical traits.
Heâ€™s aggressive on blitzes but is slow to diagnose plays and play downhill as a linebacker. Heâ€™s not explosive nor quick in his motions, but he could compete for a special team spot.
