Hill continues to grow as a pass rusherB.J. Hill sacking Chase Daniel last season.Brad Penner-USA TODAY SportsThe New York Giants are counting on a young, versatile group of linemen to anchor their 3-4 defense in 2019. Second-year man B.J. Hill is a key member of that group. Let’s take a closer look at Hill as we continue our player-by-player look at the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp.The basicsHeight: 6-foot-3Weight: 311Age: 24Position: Defensive lineExperience: 1How he got hereHill was taken by the Giants in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, arriving out of N.C. State as a collegiate nose tackle who had only eight career sacks in four years and was considered “a marginal pass rusher.”Hill ended up not playing the nose, or shade, for the Giants. Rather, he was a defensive end in the Giants’ base 3-4 and a tackle when they aligned in a 4-3 set. He finished the season with a surprising 5.5 sacks, three of which came in one game against the Chicago Bears. Per Pro Football Focus 2019 Dexter Lawrence Jersey , Hill had 27 pressures in 356 pass rushing snaps. Hill’s PFF pass rush productivity rating of 5.1 was 22nd among 46 qualifying interior defensive linemen. Hill finished 44th out of 134 qualifying defensive linemen with a 7.9 run stop percentage.2019 outlook Hill is entrenched as a starter in the Giants’ base 3-4 front. He will give the Giants run defense, athleticism and the versatility they seek to line up in various spots along their front. What remains to be seen is whether he can give them pass rush, or if the three-sack game last season was an outlier. Now the question is who will land in it?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections New York Giants NewsGiants Training Camp 2016Giants vs. Eagles 2015, Week 17New York Giants News2019 NFL DraftGiants have created comfortable “nest” for young QBNew,273commentsNow the question is who will land in it?EDTShareTweetShareShareGiants have created comfortable “nest” for young QBBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsThe New York Giants front office has been under great scrutiny of late. How on earth could they trade Odell Beckham Jr.? How could they take a running back over a quarterback at the top of last year’s draft? Does this team even have any sort of plan? How could they possibly if they are rebuilding with a 38-year-old quarterback that is clearly a declining player?Well folks, first off, this isn’t a Giants fluff piece. But New York has accomplished something pretty impressive 鈥?and extremely important. This front office, namely GM Dave Gettleman Dexter Lawrence NFL Draft , has built a great nest. A nest? Yes, a very comfortable and well-protected nest for a young quarterback to land, learn to fly and grow. Wouldn’t such a nest be better off with one of the NFL’s truly elite wide receivers? Possibly. But it also might be better off without such a huge personality involved in the young quarterback’s maturation process. It also conceivably could be better off without that huge accompanying contract or the need to force-feed one singular pass catcher. Who is to say for sure if having Beckham, his persona and his contract in the fold would be better for the Giants’ next franchise quarterback or if it would be better to have him out of the building during this maturation process in exchange for valuable draft and salary cap equity. But what can’t be argued is that the ability to distribute the ball to Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, the recently extended Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate is a very friendly situation for a highly-touted quarterback just entering the league. All four of those weapons are very quarterback-friendly stylistically, often with quick-hitting routes. Also, the ability to turn around and put the football in Barkley’s belly is also something all young (and old) NFL signal callers will be envious of. It takes a village to raise a quarterback Color Rush Deandre Baker Jersey , folks. There are two other key aspects of this village: Manning and a quickly improving offensive line. Unlike Beckham, there is no questioning that being around Manning in close quarters is a tremendous influence on a developing quarterback. Manning can hold down the fort until the youngster is ready, but more importantly, watching Manning operate as a true professional with a great head for the position will be an amazing asset. As for the offensive line, ask Josh Rosen how important it is to at least have competency up front. Now, the Giants line is far from perfect. Quarterback aside, this should be a very heavy defensive draft for New York, but they also could add a premium young offensive lineman as well. The Giants might have overpaid for Nate Solder Youth Deandre Baker Jersey , but with Solder, Will Hernandez and now Kevin Zeitler, this line now has three foundational players. That is something many teams out there can’t say right now in an offensive linemen starved league and New York now has one of the best guard pairings in the NFL.Of all the teams in the league that might be poised to draft their next franchise quarterback, the Giants might be the best landing spot for future success. That is a gigantic thing that this organization has going for it right now. This isn’t to speculate who that quarterback might be. Maybe it will be Rosen or more likely, New York will draft a quarterback early on. This is the year to make that addition rather than wait another year. The nest has been built and built very well.
