The New York Giants offensive line has been an area of focus for some time now. With multiple first-round selections used to solidify the tackle spots, the team could now look to build out the interior moving forward.

With the deparutes of both Nick Gates and Jon Feliciano, the Giants now have a need at both guard and center. At the moment, it appears that the team is prepared to send out Ben Bredeson at center and Mark Glowinski will once again occupy one of the guard spots. Both Joshua Ezeudu and Marcus McKethan, who were teammates at North Carolina and both missed their entire rookie seasons, will also fight for a starting job.

Even with the players that the Giants already have, there is still room for improvement along the offensive line. On Day 2 of the NFL Draft, they could have several options who could be immediate starters. Here are four offensive linemen the Giants can target for the second and third round:

4. Ohio State C Luke Wypler

After arriving at Ohio State in January of 2020, Luke Wypler became a key piece of the offensive line in 2021. Over the two years that he was with the Buckeyes he developed into one of the best interior linemen in the nation.

In 2021, Wypler appeared in all 13 games for Ohio State. While taking over as the starting center, he recorded 860 offensive snaps. He finished the season allowing zero sacks, one quarterback hit, and seven quarterback hurries.

Following his strong 2021 campaign, Wypler returned in 2022 prepared to make an even bigger impact. Over 13 games and 827 offensive snaps, he allowed just one sack, zero quarterback hits, and seven hurries. In addition, he recorded a PFF grade of 82.4. Coming in at 6-2.5and 302 pounds, Wypler projects to be a center at the next level. But based on what he displayed while at Ohio State, he will be able to make an impact sooner rather than later.

Wypler has proven that he can impact the game at all levels. He has the ability to reach linebackers and is strong in the run game. If Wypler can continue to develop his pass blocking, he could quickly become a starter in this Giants offense.
