The New York Giants continued their obsession with improving the defense. Phillip Dillard only started one full season at Nebraska, but he was superb in '09. He's a little small (6-foot, 245), but he has incredible lower-body strength and apparently plays a lot faster and smoother than his body type would suggest.
He didn't make a ton of impact plays for the Cornhuskers, but he's the type of sideline-to-sideline player that Jerry Reese covets. If the Giants can get more penetration up front, players such as Dillard will find a much clearer path to the ball. He's not the type of player who creates his own path, though. I see him playing on the weak side early in his career. Let's remember that he had Ndamukong Suh in front of him last season. That certainly helps.
