OL Candidates for Round 2

Pep22 : 1/30/2019 1:45 pm
guys that impressed me during the Senior Bowl week:

| Chris Lindstrom | OG | Boston College - probably a lazy analysis to say he's a Snee clone given BC connection, but he's so polished, so NFL ready to start and be above average day one

| Garrett Bradbury | OC | North Carolina State - smart, easy mover, get's to LBs frequently

| Kaleb McGary | OT | Washington - massive RT with good feet and immense strength, 6'7" frame too

| Andre Dillard | OT | Washington State - probably more of a RD1 guy when all is said and done, left tackle who seems to be well schooled with excellent feet

Others but I didn't see at the Sr Bowl:
| David Edwards | OT | Wisconsin

| Elgton Jenkins | OL | Mississippi State

| Connor McGovern | OL | Penn State & | Michael Deiter | OL | Wisconsin- more of a 4th round type, but very versatile
Dalton Reisner May last till 38 also

Williams, Ford, Taylor and Little are probably the only surefire first rounders.
Andre Dillard is rising  
Jay on the Island : 1/30/2019 1:50 pm : link
and he will likely be gone before pick 20. I would add Dalton Risner and Yodny Cajuste as potential 2nd round options.
The Oklahoma guards, the Washington OT, McCreary?  
BlueLou'sBack : 1/30/2019 1:52 pm : link
OSU's top guy maybe, Risner, it seems there's a gang of them. Benszchawel from Wisconsin... I think Deiter goes later... some questions about his athleticism. USC's OT, the small school OT at the Senior bowl...

At least one very good OL will be there at our 2nd round pick IMO, just gotta grab the right one. I think there will be options in round 4 also.
yeah

what jeff and jay wrote above.
I was very impressed with Chris Lindstrom at the senior bowl  
rasbutant : 1/30/2019 2:00 pm : link
I thought the Wisconsin guys looked terrible, but then i read one of the draftniks reports that said they were standouts???

The major thing for me with Bradbury is he seemed to get pushed back so easy in the one on ones.

I thought the USC RT showed pretty well at LT, but its such a limited body of work.

Bradbury  
Professor Falken : 1/30/2019 2:03 pm : link
When Syracuse played NC State, the announcers were raving about him and said the scouts they had spoken with also raved. Converted tight end, so has good mobility and athleticism. Question is size. Does he have the strength to move guys?
Count me in on...  
bw in dc : 1/30/2019 2:06 pm : link
Risner, can play C, RG, and RT, and both Oklahoma Gs - Powers and Samia.
I really liked  
You'reMyBoyBlue!! : 1/30/2019 2:11 pm : link
Kaleb McGary from Washington

Potential RT anchor for years.
If Risner  
ryanmkeane : 1/30/2019 2:20 pm : link
lasts until 38 he's the guy
I would like to see the Giants add a tough  
Jay on the Island : 1/30/2019 2:23 pm : link
physical OL in round 2. Jackmerius Tacktheritrix, or Javaris Jamar Javarison-Lamar would be ideal.
I was going on the assumption that Risner  
Pep22 : 1/30/2019 2:30 pm : link
would be gone by 38.

I'd like to be wrong about that.
I think Little  
Pep22 : 1/30/2019 2:31 pm : link
sucks. Very poor technique.

I thought the same.
Yodny Cajuste  
Jay on the Island : 1/30/2019 2:32 pm : link
is another potential option there.
NFL Draft Scout seems to be in a similar state of mind

I thought Sharping was terrible during SB week  
Pep22 : 1/30/2019 2:41 pm : link
I haven't seen enough of David Edwards or Jawaan Taylor to form an opinion
Tytus Howard was Jeremiah's #40 overall player  
shyster : 1/30/2019 2:43 pm : link
in his prospect list put out just before the Senior Bowl, which seemed to put him in the ballpark for NYG's #2.

Based on the reviews Howard got at the Senior Bowl, and the league's need at the position, I'm doubting whether he lasts.

The Draft Scout list has Howard down at #14 OT. I think that is now way off.

There is a video clip from the Falcons.com website where they discuss Howard as a possibility for their #1, which would be #14 overall.

Great call. Seems to have the perfect body type, coupled with above avg athleticism.
Chris Lindstrom  
SuperRonJohnson : 1/30/2019 3:36 pm : link
looked excellent at Senior Bowl.
Jenkins is my hope.  
The_Boss : 1/30/2019 4:26 pm : link
We need a long term solution at OC. Itís not Halapio.
Senior Bowl  
Jay in Toronto : 1/30/2019 4:28 pm : link
How did the two Badger guards perform?
I liked Lndstrom, although he's not the most fluid guy I've ever seen.  
yatqb : 1/30/2019 5:52 pm : link
He's a bull, aggressive as heck, and does get to the second level.

I suppose he's as fluid as Hernandez, so perhaps that's no longer a problem for the Gmen.
I really like Jawaan Taylor as a RT candidate. Athletic and strong,  
yatqb : 1/30/2019 5:55 pm : link
good feet. Doubt he'll be there in the 2nd.
There is always someone we think is a round 1 talent  
edavisiii : 1/30/2019 5:57 pm : link
that fall to the top of round 2! Keep the hopes up. Maybe one of the FS prospects will fall!
Javaris Jamar Javarison-Lamar  
wonderback : 1/30/2019 5:58 pm : link
That's really the guy's name? Geez!
Count Me On On Reisner  
wonderback : 1/30/2019 6:00 pm : link
Aggressive physical center. When's the least time we had one of those.

Answer: Never!
Putting aside my all D draft rantings  
idiotsavant : 1/30/2019 6:22 pm : link
And putting aside any particular :by this round' target:

Vahe at Texas 330lbs and Krepsz 330lbs at Nevada look like examples of guard to center conversion projects.

Your looking for hefty folks who can also zone run block and who have quick out of stance ability, attitudability.
And not too tall is another measure

Gettleman had some great hits it seems in draft last year. That along with a history success finding OL should give us a bit more confidence in the finding a starter in the 2nd. If it were Reese The opposite
That being said, it's likely  
idiotsavant : 1/30/2019 7:00 pm : link
Given the over abundance of DL this year that value will be there, at that unit, in both #6 and #38.

But, players like Vahe or Krepsz, are out there if you restrict yourself to guard or center.

The tackle discourse tends more reachy.

Has Dieter as an OT. Yes, he paged their last out of necessity, but he is an interior lineman.
No offense to Halpio  
Bluesbreaker : 1/31/2019 7:00 pm : link
I want an anchor/bulldozer at Center Guard and a FA RT .
Enough of SB getting stuffed on first down move the chains
with the run game the passing game will flourish .
I hope they take a WR with size that can get downfield .
Lattimer came on but need to challenge him as well if they
do bring him back .

Is a USC tackle who was a five star recruit out of Georgia. He underachieved at USC due to poor coaching and having three different line coaches. He played very well in the Senior Bowl and had an excellent practice week. I am curious to know how his interviews went.
Good post and thread  
montanagiant : 2/1/2019 12:25 am : link
I like McGary

Wrong answer.

You don't go back to Kevin Belcher? Dude was a stud. More recently Bart Oates.
I love Lindstrom but Iím  
mattyblue : 2/1/2019 3:13 am : link
biased for BC players so there is that. Some mocks having him going mid/late first but not that many.

*Side note and a good place to ask. Say the Giants traded to the 1st pick (again not sayig they should) what would it cost? My friend thinks the Giants could get to #1 in the exact same deal the Jets made last year, give #6 and three 2ís. This is just a discussion between a few coworkers and I kind of figure it would cost them more than that, figured Iíd ask the experts.
