Question 10: Who will be the starting middle linebacker in Week 1 if Jon Beason can’t go?
Jameel McClain. He played middle linebacker in minicamp after Beason hurt his foot and he has experience playing inside from his time with the Baltimore Ravens. McClain is a veteran who can easily step into the position and he is a leader who instantly commands the respect of his teammates. If the move must be made, it should be relatively seamless until Beason returns. JOHN SCHMEELK:
Jameel McClain is the guy. He has the experience playing inside and can provide the vocal leadership the Giants lose with Beason. DAN SALOMONE:
Jameel McClain. I liked the acquisition from day one to bring in a proven, aggressive linebacker from a team known for the position. I thought he would be a nice complement to Beason, but unfortunately for the Giants, he’ll have to be his best replacement until Beason’s foot heals.
