Following the departures of some key defensive players, Giants linebacker Alec Ogletree is expected to be a presence both on and off the field this season. It's one thing to go out and play well, but being a leader in the locker room requires the ability to mentor the younger players on the roster. 

There's no shortage of those in Giants camp this season. After taking Daniel Jones sixth overall, Big Blue spent the next five picks on players on the defensive side of the ball, including DT Dexter Lawrence

Ogletree's had a keen eye on the rookies, and likes what he's seen through the first two games of the preseason.

New York Giants rookie pass rusher Oshane Ximines explains the impact he can have on the Giants defense this season.

With their third round draft pick, the Giants selected outside linebacker Oshane Ximines at pick 95 overall. The 6 foot 4 inch linebacker became the first player ever drafted out of Old Domininon.

During an interview with SNY, he was asked about how the jump from a small school to the NFL has been for him.

"I feel like the biggest jump was the playbook and the complexity of it, but once you get out on the field it's just football man, no matter who you're playing against, it's the same thing you've been doing your whole life."
