How Good Has Jon Beason Been For the Giants?

Jon Beason is second best — and I mean that in the absolute most positive way possible. In Pro Football Focus’ run stopping metrics, Jon Beason is currently the second best run stopping interior lineman in the league.

We knew Beason was going to be an upgrade to our middle defense, now we know exactly how good. The Giants absolutely stole the Carolina Panthers LB for a 7th round pick – a guy that has completely reformed the MLB position for the NY Giants and through 2 games has helped hold Matt Forte and Adrian Peterson to 88 yards and 0 TDS collectively. That is a huge accomplishment for the defense, especially the front 4 which has played very well against the run — but it’s also due to Beason’s presence in the middle identifying run plays, getting off blocks, and making stops when the RB gets to the second level.
