EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Giants have taken Ohio State tackle Johnathan Hankins in the second round of the NFL draft, turning their attention to rebuilding a disappointing defense.
The Giants had one of the league's worst defenses while missing the playoffs last season, and Hankins is the type of run stuffer who was sorely missed. He played three seasons with the Buckeyes, starting 25 of 38 games, including all 12 last season.
New York started rebuilding their aging offensive line in the first round, taking versatile Syracuse tackle Justin Pugh, who can play every position on the line.
