3. Duke OT Graham Barton

The Duke senior is widely regarded as the best tackle in the ACC and for good reason. In 826 snaps his junior year, he didn't let anyone touch his quarterback. He gave up zero QB hits and zero sacks. After watching Jones get killed a few days ago, getting a guy who won't let that happen seems like a pretty good plan.

Barton has quick feet, which allows him to fire out of his stance and win on the attack. With the quickness of edge-rushers in the NFC, that agility of an offensive tackle can't be overlooked for the Giants when scouting. Barton also has the ability to play multiple positions. He started his Duke career as a center and then transitioned to left tackle. Having an understanding of multiple positions could ease the transition to right tackle.

The only question mark with Barton is if he's too far in the other direction from Neal. Barton doesn't give up much height, but he is about 30 pounds lighter. This is good for his quickness off the snap in the pass game, but may be an issue in certain run-blocking schemes.
