2. NY Giants left guard Ben Bredeson
While the Giants seem to have their franchise starting tackles and center in place, the guard positions remain a work in progress. The Giants traded for Ben Bredeson in 2021 and then signed Mark Glowinski to a three-year, $18.3 million contract the next season before they decided to spend a third-round pick on former North Carolina guard Joshua Ezeudu in the 2022 NFL Draft. As you can see, the team has tried to address the interior offensive line, but nothing has stuck.
Bredeson was listed as starting left guard on the first unofficial depth chart with Mark Glowinski listed opposite him at the right guard position. Ezeudu has not been able to leapfrog Bredeson/Glowinski for either starting guard role. However, Bredeson has spent time with the first team at both guard positions during training camp this summer. He started at left guard vs. Carolina, but there was still some rotating up front.
The Athletic’s Dan Duggan has noted that there has been a constant rotation at the guard position between Bredeson, Ezeudu, and Glowinski in recent practices. However, Bredeson seems to be the constant in each rotation. We expect him to be the starting LG once the Cowboys arrive to MetLife Stadium next month.
