Summary

Vernon proved himself worthy of the $85 million contract he signed in the 2016 off-season and, along with Jason Pierre-Paul, gives the Giants arguably the best defensive end tandem in the NFL. He plays the run extremely well and consistently wins in one-on-one matchups. Although he hasn't amassed double-digit sacks since 2013, he generated more pressure than his eight sacks last year indicate. So 10+ sacks is not out of reach for the 26 year old Miami graduate. Consider him a high floor DL1 with some upside. (August 21)
