Draft Week: Top OL Candidates

2 of 8

Mike Pouncey

G/C, Florida

The Giants love their versatile players, Rich Seubert to name a one that would be hard to replace on the roster right now. But with Seubert facing a long rehabilitation, the Giants are going to need a young Guard/Center like Pouncey to rely on for the next several seasons as the Giants look to fortify the backbone of their offense and get younger in the process.  It also plays right into the Giants hand that his brother Maurkice Pouncey was picked up in the first round last year by the Pittsburgh Steelers and has excelled at the NFL level.  Another Peyton/Eli situation in the works perhaps?
