2. OG Ben Bredeson

Similar to the Giants' defense, there is only one really big question mark on the teams' offense - left guard, which has seen a plethora of players man the position over the last couple of years. This season, though, the Giants have some truly intriguing players that could start at the position.

Among the candidates for left guard are Ben Bredeson, Josh Ezeudu, and Shame Lemieux. Of these three, it seems like the most likely to start Week 1 is Bredeson. Lemieux has had too many injury concerns and unless Ezeudu makes a big jump, it would be hard to realistically place him over Bredeson on the depth chart.

However, if Bredeson underperforms and Ezeudu continues to progress, the tides could shift in his favor. Bredeson may also have some slight injury concerns like Lemieux. However, unlike Lemieux, Bredeson is a pretty solid player when healthy,

Through 322 pass blocking snaps last season, Bredeson allowed just 11 pressures and three sacks while being a rather solid run-blocker. Hopefully, the 25-year-old hoss can remain healthy this season, as the Giants cannot afford to have a turnstile at left guard anymore.
