video on Giants RT Tyler Howell

YANKEE28 : 5/10/2018 6:07 pm
heartwarming video. Seems the Giants have signed some really good citizens in this draft and during UDFA signings.

Howell played for Missouri. He has the size for the position at 6'8 1/4" inches and 328 pounds.

At his Pro Day, he lifted the bar 23 times, ran a 5.30 forty and had an amazing 86 1/4 inch wingspan.

Low for an OL?
That said, Raiders, I think, went jumbo vertically at both OT spots.
And we already have Solder, and I think Wheeler is 6'6" plus.
if this guy is a fine and in time Wheeler kicks over to LT after NS, or they go viceversa after Solder, fill in C and RG the DG way, that's be great.
But for right now, I hope at least one of CW or TH is a bona fide starter.
Hope he's good enough to make it

23 is a low number, but he has. 7'2" wingspan which tells me he has really long arms. Orlando Brown Jr. only did 14 reps at a very similar build and was still drafted in a decent position.

Not when your arms are 4 feet long! Guys with longer arms have a built in mechanical disadvantage, whereas guys with shorter arms have a mechanical advantage.
Great stuff

How can you not root for a kid like this. Awesome story.
The Giants problem hasn't been drafting for character

They've been drafting solid guys who were team captains for some time.

Their problem is that those guys weren't exactly the best at football...
Great video!

video. Thanks.
Long arms  
Mark from Jersey : 5/10/2018 7:57 pm : link
will likely mean smaller total. Our new OL Hernendez has shorter arms at 32" did man more reps (37). It has an impact.

And clearly the character/leadership attributes didn't exactly take in the Giants lockerroom either. This team was as dysfunctional as any last season.

what a mess...

Agreed but, the fish rots from the head down. The further we get away from the dumpster fire that was last year, the more we realize how bad Macadoo was. Not making excuses for the malcontents in the locker room at all but, it wasn't addressed properly or early enough, he had NO respect from the players at all and as things went downhill, things only got worse.

Man, what a mess

Nope. Not as an undrafted FA.

over the rugby player the Eagles signed any day. Has game experience and similar in size.

This is the kind of high character guy we need on the roster. Hope he can develop at this level. 3+ seasons or so at RT then slide him to LT when Solder retires.

Barkley and Solder add really good character to this locker room as well.
