New York Giants: 5 Way Too Early First Round Draft Picks

OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame

The Giants are going to acquire a big time offensive lineman or two this offseason. Whether they spend big in free agency or use a high draft pick, you can bet on them investing big on the o-line.

After Wednesday’s release of tackle Will Beatty and guard Geoff Schwartz, the Giants have glaring holes on the right side of their offensive line. Enter Ronnie Stanley.

The Notre Dame product has ideal size for the tackle position standing at 6’6 and 315 lbs. He possess a rare combination of athleticism and length, and could start immediately for the G-men. Whether he’ll force Ereck Flowers back to right tackle or not is a question for another time, but it also isn’t a bad problem to have.

If he impresses at the combine in a few weeks, he could be the first tackle off the board. The only question here is, will he still be available at pick number 10?
