Former Syracuse defensive tackle Chris Slayton was drafted by the New York Giants with the 245th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Saturday.
Slayton, a three-year starter in the middle of the Orange’s defensive line, commanded double teams, freeing up SU’s defensive end duo of Kendall Coleman and Alton Robinson. And despite the extra blocking attention, Slayton is still ninth all-time in Syracuse history in tackles for loss (32.5).
