While the 6-3, 248-pound Tracy played DE for the Tribe, he's certainly going to move to outside linebacker with the Giants. At this point in the draft, you're just looking for athletes, and the Giants certainly got one in Tracy.
Tracy is long, athletic and runs well. He lacks ability to stack the edge, however, and may not be strong enough to be a three-down player yet. That said, he has talent, and the ability to get to the quarterback.
Here's what NFL.com had to say about Tracy:
Tracy was very productive over the last two seasons at William & Mary, recording 22 sacks. A bit of a 'tweener, size-wise, Tracy will have to make the transition to outside linebacker at the next level. He is a heady player who does his homework and consistently makes the right reads and flows to the ball. His non-stop motor makes up for his less-than-elite measurables, but his lack of burst will limit his ability to get to the quarterback in the NFL. Plays a little high and will get blown out of the play too often. Needs to refine hand placement and technique against bigger and more athletic players. Tracy is a coach's dream as far as effort and preparation are concerned, but his physical limitations made him a late-round prospect.
