With the 46th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected East Carolina defensive tackle Linval Joseph.

The Giants entered this year's draft knowing one of their top priorities was to improve the defensive line. After spending their first-round pick on defensive end Jason-Pierre Paul, New York adds another player who has great speed for his size and knows how to pressure opposing quarterbacks.

Last season, the Giants lost their reputation as one of the top defenses in the NFL and allowed their opponents to average 26.7 points per game—ranking them 30th among teams. The 6'4", 328-pound Joseph should help turn all of that around during his rookie campaign with New York.
