That doesn’t have to be a bad thing.Last season, the Giants’ secondary was not one of the league’s better units, ranked 26th against the pass per Football Outsiders’ DVOA. Despite some inexperience — UDFA Grant Haley turned into a starter, B.W. Webb was a starter after serving as a role player for much of his career, Curtis Riley was in his first season as a safety — the unit wasn’t particularly young.one of the league’s better corners in charting metrics during 2017 (18th in yards allowed per pass and 10th in success rate per Football Outsiders) to one of the league’s worst in 2018 and was eventually replaced by trade acquisition Eli Apple. Lattimore’s charting numbers were about average during his rookie season, but he dropped to 81st among 83 qualified corners in yards allowed per pass and 74th in success rate during 2018.Defensive statistics are less stable from year-to-year than offensive stats and that is especially true of the cornerback charting metrics, which are much better as despective numbers than predictive ones. With nearly the same group coming back for a third season and a full offseason with Eli Apple as a starter, the Saints could still find themselves an improved group in the secondary and still one of the youngest. Lattimore, entering his third season, will only be 23 years old. Perhaps the Giants could look more like the 2018 Seattle Seahawks, a team with the second-youngest secondary last season. The prior year, Seattle’s Legion of Boom started to crack. Due to injuries, Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor played just over half of the team’s defensive snaps and Earl Thomas missed two games. But the Seahawks were able to rotate in a few young players who contributed instantly, such as nickel corner Justin Coleman and rookie cornerback Shaquil Griffin, who finished the season fifth in yard allowed per pass and eighth in success rate among qualified cornerbacks. The group overall was 21st in snap-weighted age that season.In 2018, Sherman was in San Francisco, Chancellor was out of football due to his injury, and Thomas made it through just four games before suffering a season-ending injury. The Seahawks relied on more youth than expected. Griffin took over as the team’s top corner but struggled in that role (69th in yards allowed per pass and 74th in success rate). The 25-year-old Coleman continued his play as one of the league’s best slot corners, but was also in a contract year. On the outside White Lorenzo Carter Jerseys , Seattle eventually relied upon rookie fifth-round pick Tre Flowers, who was up and down for 91 percent of the team’s defensive snaps. Seattle finished a respectable 14th in pass defense DVOA, though much of that success was from Coleman in the slot (10th in DVOA) and work against running backs (13th in DVOA) and tight ends (10th in DVOA), which was more about the linebacking corps than Seattle’s young outside corners.Then there is a secondary like the 2018 Colts, the fourth-youngest by snap-weighted age and 20th in pass defense DVOA. That group started to come together at the end of the season with solid performances by cornerbacks Pierre Desir (29) and Kenny Moore (23), but for much of the season, the secondary was aided by a defensive line and excellent group of linebackers that shut down the run — fourth in run defense DVOA. For as many rescources have been used on the defensive line and linebackers, this doesn’t feel like a path the 2019 Giants can take.The Cleveland Browns also had one of the league’s youngest secondaries that played quite well. The Browns ranked seventh in pass defense DVOA. led by a first-round rookie corner.On the other side, the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens had two of the league’s oldest secondaries and two of the league’s best pass defenses. Where teams don’t want to be is where the Oakland Raiders found themselves last season, with the third-oldest defensive back group in the league and a 32nd-ranked pass defense by DVOA.Youth won’t be the determining factor in the Giants’ play this season. They also won’t be relying strictly on young players —the team will have experience at two important positions with players expected to be on the field for a majority of the defensive snaps. What will matter more than the age will be the play. If Janoris Jenkins plays like 2017 and 2018, his seven seasons in the league matter less. If DeAndre Baker immediately clicks, it won’t matter if he is only a rookie. It would also be fair to have more concern about the future play of Jenkins, who hasn’t had an above average season since 2016, than Baker and the other rookies.Last season’s Giants secondary was bad, slightly inexperienced, and not that young. The youth movement was made, the inexperience can show at some point, but time will tell how that impacts the quality of the group. In this scenario, Giants go linebacker in Round 1 for first time since 1984"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections New York Giants NewsGiants Training Camp 2016Giants vs. Eagles 2015, Week 17New York Giants NewsGiants Free Agency 2019Mock Draft: Devin White choice for Giants at No. 6 in SBN blogger’s mockNew Lorenzo Carter Jerseys 2019 ,224commentsIn this scenario, Giants go linebacker in Round 1 for first time since 1984EDTShareTweetShareShareMock Draft: Devin White choice for Giants at No. 6 in SBN blogger’s mockDevin White at the Combine.Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY SportsSB Nation is in the midst of its annual Bloggers Mock Draft, and with the No. 6 overall pick I chose to give the New York Giants LSU linebacker Devin White.The first five picks went like this:Arizona Cardinals — Kyler Murray, QB, OklahomaSan Francisco 49ers — Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio StateNew York Jets — Josh Allen, Edge, KentuckyOakland Raiders — Quinnen Williams, DL, AlabamaTampa Bay Buccaneers — Ed Oliver, DL, HoustonFollow all the picks here.Here is how I explained the pick and the reaction to it by SB Nation draft analyst Dan Kadar:A little more explanationEdge, edge, edge, edge, edge. I know. The entire NFL draft community, the media, the fanbase — everyone — expects the Giants to take an edge defender if they don’t take a quarterback. Unless the signals coming out of East Rutherford are a massive, and wildly effective White B.J. Hill Jerseys , smokescreen it is a virtual lock the pick at No. 6 will not be Haskins. It’s almost as much of a certainty that it won’t be Drew Lock.I wholeheartedly believe GM Dave Gettleman dreams of scenarios where Quinnen Williams falls to the Giants here. If that doesn’t happen someone from the Montez Sweat, Brian Burns, Rashan Gary group of edge guys might — in most cases — be the likely choice. Quite honestly, I don’t believe White is getting past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at No. 5. He did here, and my contention is that regardless of position he was the best defensive player on the board. Since you can argue, and I have argued, that the Giants can use upgrades at every spot along their defense, I wasn’t about to pass the guy I felt was the best defensive player remaining.Devin White profileUmm, no, it wasn’t an accident that the Devin White prospect profile posted at Big Blue View earlier today. Sometimes we actually do have a plan.Knowing I was selecting White in the mock, Chris offered an expanded — and mixed —analysis. Here is part of it:Chris and Dan reactChris Pflum and Dan Pizzuta offer their reactions to the selection via the Big Blue View Radio podcast.The fellas, to be honest, aren’t so sure about Ed’s judgment here. Chris made the case for Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, and also said he would have gone with one of the edge rushers, either Brian Burns or Montez Sweat, if the pick was not a quarterback. Dan also seemed to favor Burns and Sweat.
