Damon Harrison is a wall – and has a cool mouthpiece to boot.
The New York Giants defensive tackle leads all players at his position in tackles (63) and continues to own an extremely valuable Pro Football Focus statistic.
Run stop percentage.
Harrison has stopped opposing running backs on 17.3% of his snaps this season – leading the league.
This stat is no stranger to Harrison as he’s led the league in this category twice before.
Harrison is currently PFF’s seventh-best interior defensive lineman, trailing Aaron Donald by only .2 for the title of league’s best run defender in their graded system.
Due in large part to Harrison, the Giants are the fifth-best team in football against the run – they were 24th last season.
