Chris Slayton drafted in 7th round of NFL Draft to New York Giants

first_imgFormer Syracuse defensive tackle Chris Slayton was drafted by the New York Giants with the 245th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Saturday.Slayton, a three-year starter in the middle of the Orange’s defensive line, commanded double teams, freeing up SU’s defensive end duo of Kendall Coleman and Alton Robinson. And despite the extra blocking attention, Slayton is still ninth all-time in Syracuse history in tackles for loss (32.5).He joins a Giants team fresh off a 5-11 season. Interior line is a need for a talent-depleted defense, one that traded away dominant run-stopper Damon Harrison during the 2018 season.Slayton is Syracuse’s first selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, taken in the seventh round. Still on the board are wideout Jamal Custis, quarterback Eric Dungey and linebackers Ryan Guthrie and Kielan Whitner.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 27, 2019 at 6:12 pm Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @A_E_Grahamlast_img read more
