2018 NFL Draft: Updated top 25 targets for New York Giants

#12 – Oklahoma OT Orlando Brown
It’s time to get back to the big boys up front. There’s a reason seven offensive linemen crack this list. The Giants have multiple needs along the offensive line this offseason and are sure to take at least one offensive lineman in the 2018 draft.
Hopefully, Gettleman doesn’t wait until the sixth-round to select an offensive tackle like Jerry Reese did last year. This year’s draft class is expected to have more talented offensive linemen than last year’s class, but it’s not as deep as other positions, such as running back.
Brown is surely a prospect Big Blue fans should keep an eye on, as he might be exactly what Gettleman is looking for in a cornerstone left tackle. The 6-foot-8, 345-pound junior is arguably the most talented run-blocking tackle in this year’s draft class.
Kiper has the Sooners offensive tackle listed as the third best player at his position and the 24th overall prospect. ESPN’s longtime draft analyst praises Brown’s ability to pick up blitzing linebackers, and anyone that has watched him play has likely noticed how quickly he moves for a big man.
