New York Giants: Damon "Snacks" Harrison 2016 Highlights and 2017 Expectations

 Defensive tackle Damon Harrison was one of the New York Giants' best players, leading the defense to a top five season. 

New York Giants' defensive tackle Damon Harrison had a superb year in 2016, racking up 55 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble, according to ESPN.com. 
Harrison's main strength is his run stuffing abilities, consistently clogging up running lanes and powering through blocks. 
 
As an undrafted free-agent, the former Jet has been a bright light in the NFL earning a spot along-side the best defensive tackles in the league. 
Harrison signed a five-year contract worth $46.25 million in 2016, making him one of the highest paid DT's in the league. 
There was skepticism surrounding his contract due to the amount of money allocated to a player who generally only plays on the first two-downs. 
But, he more than justified his cap-hit in 2016, consistently battering opposing running backs and wreaking havoc on offensive lineman. 
Not only is Harrison a beast in the trenches but he's a well spoken leader on a young Giants defense. 
Recently, Harrison's former teammate Sheldon Richardson threw shade at now New York Giants' receiver Brandon Marshall. 
Harrison publicly defended his teammate, letting out his inner comedian stating, "Brandon's jersey number? Pretty clever, Sheldon. Oh wow. You got to keep the mic away from Sheldon, man." Snacks then continue to say, "Sheldon, get away from the damn microphone." 
All in all, Harrison is a stand-up guy that's also one of the most talented players in the league. 
His stats and highlights are impressive from 2016, but I'm expecting even more from the undrafted star alongside second-round pick Dalvin Tomlinson.
