NFL pundit believes New York Giants could trade former Day 2 pick

With a new defensive scheme and the addition of a star pass-rusher, there may be an odd-man out on the New York Giants defensive line.

Former second-round pick Azeez Ojulari has yet to regain the form he had during his rookie season when he recorded 8.0 sacks and 13 quarterback hits in 13 starts.

The arrival of star Brian Burns and the development of Kayvon Thibodeaux could make Ojulari a potential trade candidate, according to Anthony DiBona of Pro Football Network.

The New York Giants have built quite an elite pass-rushing duo with Kayvon Thibodeaux and Brian Burns. Yet that could mean Azeez Ojulari’s days in New York are coming to an end. Ojulari has failed to find consistency with the Giants and could be traded during the final year of his rookie contract.

Considering Ojulari is in the final year of his rookie contract, it might behoove the Giants to get what they can if the Georgia product isn’t living up to his potential as a situational pass-rusher.

The Giants are hoping to get a bit more out of Boogie Basham as well in Shane Bowen’s defense, which relies heavily on the front four generating pressure.

Ojulari enters a crucial turning point in his career so this will be a storyline to keep an eye on, especially when the trade deadline arrives in the middle of the season.
