Loser - Evan Neal

We can't all be winners now can we. One of the biggest losers has got to be Neal. The former stud tackle out of Alabama has struggled mightily since coming into the league two years ago. Now entering Year 3, Schoen is lighting a fire under Neal to see if he can turn his career around after two dismal years at right tackle. The Giants thought they had solved a big part of the offensive line problem when they drafted Neal, but he has not been able to put it together.

Schoen has had enough. He is putting the entire offensive line under a massive overhaul. Neal is no longer the plug and play right tackle anymore. No one's spot is safe outside of Andrew Thomas and John Michael Schmitz (for now). Schoen has brought in several offensive linemen in the first week of free agency alone. The most noticeable one at tackle being Eluemunor.

He comes over with new offensive line coach Bricillo and he is coming to take Neal's spot. As we mentioned previously, some fans want Neal to slide inside and play guard. Could that help him get his career on track? Who knows, but the Eluemunor addition shows that his days at right tackle could be numbered.
