Meet Sean Donnelly:
Sean Donnelly, is a tackle from Tulane University. At 6’8” and 298lbs Donnelly is extremely tall and a very good pass blocker but his height prevents him from getting good leverage during run blocking. He started 36 of the 42 games he played in and is a decorated athlete.
He earned all-conference honors in each of his final two college seasons. He was named third-team All-Conference USA by College Sports Madness and got an honorable-mention All C-USA recognition by the league coaches and media members as a junior. He was awarded second-team All-American Athletic Conference distinction from College Sports Madness as a senior.
The Giants do lack depth along the offensive line so if Donnelly shows something to the coaches he may have a shot to make the roster. This is a player that has the physical traits to start in the NFL. If he can improve as a run blocker he could be a really solid offensive tackle. The Giants will be happy to have more depth at this very important position.
