ILB Dan Connor - New York Giants
|6-2, 231||Born: 11-2-1985||College: Penn State||Drafted: Round 3|
Quick fantasy outlook: As of right now, Connor figures to be the favorite to start at middle linebacker for the Giants, but he will have to fend off incumbent Mark Herzlich for that role. Despite being a solid run defender, Connor's coverage skills have historically limited him to a two-down thumper type of role. He may wind up playing a majority of the team's snap by default, and if that's the case, he's worth a look as a LB3. Otherwise, he falls more into the LB4+, matchup-type play.
