4. What will the starting offensive line look like?

During OTAs, we got a bit of a sneak peek of what the Giants offensive line could look like heading into the season. However, due to the non-mandatory status of the camps, as well as the lack of contact, it's hard to judge if this line will remain the same.

As things stand, the line, from left to right, is expected to look like Andrew Thomas, Jon Runyan Jr., John Michael-Schmitz, Jermaine Eluemunor, and Evan Neal. While on paper, this seems like the best unit, you never know what could happen.

For example, Carmen Bricillo is a new offensive line coach for the G-Men with his own coaching style. If someone on the line doesn't meet his standards or work ethic, they could very easily be replaced, especially with the new-found depth the Giants have in the trenches.

Most notably, it will be interesting to see if Neal maintains his starting spot on the line. Bricillo has talked somewhat highly of him and is likely a better coach for the third-year tackle than Bobby Johnson ever was. However, if Neal performs poorly, Bricillo won't have the connection Johnson did, so it could cause trouble for his position as a starter. Might Eluemunor get moved to the outside?
