With the addition of Neal the Giants are set at both tackle spots for at least the next 3 seasons. Even if Mbaeteka develops into a good player he will not be ready to contribute at all this season. IMO the best case scenario would be for him to spend the majority of the season on the PS but finish the season on the active roster to prevent any team from poaching him to sign to a future contract.
If everything goes right MBaeteka could be ready for a backup role in 2023. Ideally a more seasoned player will be the swing tackle so that there isn't pressure on MBaeteka to step in early. I would prefer to see the Giants work him strictly at RT or LT early on.
Another kid I thought would have a bright future with the Giants. Just wasn't happening. Nice to see he's still involved with the league.
