With the No. 74 pick in the NFL Draft, the Giants selected defensive tackle Jay Bromley out of Syracuse.
“Reminds you of a shorter Chris Canty the way he looks in his uniform,” GM Jerry Reese said of his pick.
Bromley is listed at 6 foot 3 inches and 306 pounds, from Jamaica, Queens, New York. He has a “tall, well-built frame with some upper body bulk,” according to his draft profile from CBS Sports.
He made 31 tackles in 2013, 13.5 for a loss. He had ten sacks and three forced fumbles in his senior season.
Over his four-year career, he had 33 career starts, 13 sacks and 24.5 tackles for a loss.
John Fennelly, Lead WriterAt 6 foot 3 inches and 306, he fits the DT prototype and is durable and strong with some quickness. He is a hard-worker who takes the game seriously and is from Syracuse, a school the Giants aren’t afraid to draft from. He was a team captain for the Orange and is perfect for the Giants’ interior line rotation. Again, a kid with a nice upside, with a chance to be more than a viable replacement for Linval Joseph.
