Defensive End

DE | Mathias Kiwanuka | New York Giants | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
The New York Giants usually use a strict 4-3 defensive alignment, but they have used some 3-4 formations or hybrid looks that ask their defensive ends to stand up and either play outside linebacker or at least look as though they might. The idea is to confuse the opposing offense and possibly to be in better position to react to run-heavy, read-option offenses like the Washington Redskins have, and perhaps the Philadelphia Eagles will use. DE Mathias Kiwanuka played linebacker last season before moving back to defensive end, and he is someone who can fit into this hybrid system nicely.

Free Safety

FS | Stevie Brown | New York Giants | Depth Chart Tidbit
The New York Giants want FS Stevie Brown to be more versatile now that he is a full-time starter. Having a full training camp to work as a starter will help Brown become the interchangeable safety the club wants him to be. "We already know he's a ballhawk and can go and he can go get the ball and do something with it once he gets it," FS Antrel Rolle said Tuesday, Aug. 6. "Now he's showing us that he can play in the box and definitely be a versatile safety."
