Positional value is everything

QB, OL, ED and we’ve drafted terribly in the middle rounds.
Glad you said OL and not LT.

Every OL is at a premium. These guys don't grow on trees. This isn't like the old days where you can pick up a guy off the street and plug him in. All 5 positions are premium positions.
Unfortunately it looks like we need another

RB next year.

Pull the trigger early?
This draft has to fix the OL

Or do everything they can to at least try to. Sure one of the top edge guys could go first but then it has to be OL, OL, OL. There will be good value OLs available. We’ve drafted zero OLs in two of our last four drafts and only one in another. Our biggest need from four years ago and it has not been addressed properly.
I think this has been key to our prolonged demise

Not understanding the value of positions in regards to capital and the place your organization is at. Barkley and Jones were two entirely wrong picks for what the franchise needed, which were OL and ER. Even the trade down for Toney passed on Slater, which now looks insane.
The biggest problem about fixing the OL is not lack of supply,

it's the decision makers.

The Giants have shown no ability to properly scout and evaluate (nor develop either) the position in free agency or the draft. At this point Gates and Thomas are more like outliers in their flawed process, so that provides no comfort.

Everybody on the site wants to fix the OL when they see the current version like last night. Then they backtrack on that thinking when they see the other shiny toys to draft each Spring...
