No. 3) OT Cam Fleming
Through the first few weeks of the season, Cam Fleming was the Giants’ most consistent offensive lineman, however, given what the Giants invested in offensive tackle this year and have the possibility of investing in next April’s NFL Draft, it’s difficult to envision Fleming returning.
Through nine weeks, Fleming has allowed 24 total pressures and five sacks while playing right tackle opposite No. 4 overall pick Andrew Thomas.
Meanwhile, as Fleming has battled inconsistency, the Giants have worked in third-round rookie tackle Matt Peart, and Peart has played exceedingly well.
The Giants’ rotating in Peart underscores their desire to get him quality snaps both in terms of his development as well as to evaluate whether he’s capable of starting opposite Thomas next season. If the Giants wind up with a top-five pick, they could be in prime position to chose the premier tackle in the 2021 class, Oregon’s Penai Sewell.
Regardless, Fleming served his purpose as the latest one-year Band Aid at right tackle, and the Giants will likely let Fleming hit the open market in favor of playing either Peart or a rookie at right tackle, finally solidifying a pair of bookends possibly for up to the next decade.
