2022 NFL Draft: 5 Positions New York Giants must target
By Reese Nasser
An elite center can help make an offensive line elite. They are also the leader of that unit. Just look at what Jason Kelce has done for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Current center Billy Price has had his fair share of issues when on the field this season, and while he could still serve a role on this team, there are better options at the position.
Iowa center Tyler Lindebaum could be an intriguing option for this team. While not only being the best center prospect in this draft, he is arguably the best offensive line prospect.
If the Giants choose to not go after Lindebaum in the first, they can still find talent deeper in the draft. In recent seasons, there has been a shocking amount of rookie centers to come in and become stars from day one. 2021 second-round pick Creed Humphrey is doing exactly that on the Kansas City Chiefs. If the Giants can find the leader of their offensive line in this draft, they are filling a need that they have had for some time.
