New York Giants: Offensive Tackles To Consider In 2017 NFL Draft
The New York Giants are in dire need of an improvement along the offensive line. Who should the Giants be looking at prior to the 2017 NFL Draft Combine?
The 2017 NFL Draft will provide Jerry Reese and the New York Giants with an invaluable opportunity to continue building towards the future. The Giants’ youth movement is nothing if not intriguing, and the annual selection process will provide an opportunity to solidify the roster.
As the Giants weigh their options, it’s hard to find a need more pressing than the void at offensive tackle.
New York has a considerable amount of talent, but it hasn’t been able to solidify its offensive line. Left guard Justin Pugh and center Weston Richburg are outstanding interior anchors, but right guard, left tackle, and right tackle are all positions of need.
No matter which position Ereck Flowers plays in 2017, it’s only rational to start at tackle, where New York ranked amongst the worst in the NFL in 2016.
The 2017 NFL Draft is believed to be devoid of elite talent at offensive tackle. Having said that, Reese has drafted well before and could find another diamond in the rough at the most significant position of need.
The question is: which offensive tackles should the Giants be eyeing before digging deep at the 2017 NFL Draft Combine?
