Syracuse is in the midst of a recruiting frenzy, and one player who is getting some attention is offensive lineman Jonathan Allen.
Allen has been an All-American at Syracuse and the nation’s No. 2 offensive lineman overall, and he’s been in demand since signing with the Orange last year.
The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Allen is expected to be a big-time player in the NFL.
In his first year with the Giants, he racked up seven sacks and 10 quarterback hurries, while making him one of the most effective pass-rushers in the league.
Syracuse has made an aggressive push to make Allen the focal point of the offensive line, and with a slew of talented defensive linemen in the mix, it’s no wonder why Allen is on their radar.
One of the biggest things I’ve learned in my time here is that we’re not going to let our guard down.
I’ve always believed that when you get to a certain point in your career, it becomes very difficult to keep your head down.
So I’ve stayed focused on my craft and I’ve tried to be consistent with what I’ve done here and I think it’s paying off.
I’ve been so fortunate to have the opportunity to play in this league and have my career here and play in a position where I’m getting to know everybody.
You can never go to a new position without getting a new perspective.
It’s hard to go into this new job with a new understanding of what you’re doing.
And then you get on the field and you start to really understand the play-calling and the scheme and the concepts.
That’s the type of guy I am.
I have an incredible understanding of the game.
It definitely helps me keep my head down and focus on my job.
I still need to get better.
But I think I’m good.
I think that’s something I’m trying to keep my focus on.
The Giants are still searching for a starting right tackle, but they’re hoping to be able to trade up in the draft to draft an offensive tackle with their first pick.
One player who could be an interesting trade-up target is defensive tackle T.J. Barnes.
Barnes is a big, powerful, athletic player, but he’s not a great fit at defensive tackle.
His lack of strength and ability to play with his hands and his size don’t make him a great pass-rushing prospect, and the Giants don’t have many big-name defensive tackles who can compete for the starting right guard spot in the first round.
But with the likes of LSU’s Taco Charlton and Clemson’s Ben Boulware in the running, Barnes could become an intriguing option to the Giants.
One thing that makes Barnes interesting is his size.
Barnes is 6-6, 306 pounds, and while he has been a solid pass-rush player at Syracuse, he lacks a high-end pass-blocking technique that would make him an ideal fit for the Giants at the position.
Barnes has played at the tackle position for Clemson, but his best position is a 3-technique at defensive end.
But he’s an intriguing prospect and could become a key cog for the offensive lines in the Giants’ offense.
I think he’s one of those guys that could be really good at that position.
The first year of his college career he’s really gotten better as the season went on.
He’s really taken it to another level.
But at the end of the day he’s still a college player.
He has to continue to grow and improve as a football player.
And he’s a very good football player, too.
I really think he could be a very productive player in this offense.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he was a first-round pick or undrafted free agent.
I know that’s one big reason he’s in that position right now.
