Marvin Austin is a big guy at 6-foot-2 and 312 lbs., and he is exactly the kind of guy that the Giants need in the middle of the defensive line along with Linval Joseph. He has solid pass-rushing abilities that he showed while at the University of North Carolina and, despite the questions about his character that surfaced shortly before the 2011 Draft, he was once viewed as a potential top 10 draft pick by many scouts before his senior season and subsequent suspension. 

Austin didn't see the field much in 2012, but he should factor into the Giants' 4-3 defense in the future.
