I saw Linval playing at ECU who happened to have a real good team that year under Skip Holtz. I was ecstatic when they drafted him as he was a terror. Giants had a really good long streak of identifying talented interior players.
Reliable and just a monster on the inside with an underrated ability to rush the passer. I think he made life for cofield a lot easier. He changed our defense big time after losing Griffin and hammer the year before
that we pretty consistently draft well in the first few rounds, but we seem never to be able to afford them for their second contract and they walk. Then we have to dip into FA and replenish the shelves.
when the Giants originally signed him I thought it was an overpay because he was considered a solid pass rusher but below average versus the run. As a Giant he was an excellent all around DT who played a key role in their first SB run.
