On Thursday night, Gang Green chose to pad their defense by adding LSU safety Jamal Adams with the sixth-overall pick.
The pick gives New York one of the draft's most talented defenders, a hard-hitting, downhill tackler who exits college renowned by his former teammates and coaches as one of the best leaders in LSU lore.
"I think this is the second-best football player in the draft," NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah said after Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the selection.
"He can play all over the field and he could have an immediate impact on defense just like Landon Collins did coming out (for the Giants)," one scout told NFL.com. "I love him. I think he's a winner."
