Winner - Carmen Bricillo

The changes up front are something fans are still celebrating. The hope is that new offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo can work some wonders with the team's historically bad offensive line. Bricillo comes over from the Raiders, where he brought an awful offensive line back to solid play during his time there. Schoen is revamping the offensive line in free agency, and he brought someone over that Bricillo knows very well.

Bricillo is getting his former starting right tackle Jermaine Eluemunor from the Raiders. At two years and $14 million for his contract, Giants Nation is loving the Eluemunor addition. Along with Eluemunor, Bricillo is also getting former Green Bay Packers guard Jon Runyan Jr. on a three year, $30 million deal. Runyan, a standout guard at Michigan, is a solid offensive lineman and only 26 years old. Schoen and Giants fans alike are hoping he takes the next step forward as a player.

It's up in the air if Eluemunor will start over Evan Neal on the outside, but if he does, the former No. 7 overall pick would then move to right guard. This is something people have been calling for. Bricillo must also be happy that the Giants just added hosses Auston Schlottmann and Aaron Stinnie too. Needed depth is arriving in East Rutherford. Boom.
