I wouldn't be happy. This guy is dumb as fuck, he's over-aged, he's underweight, he's very under-experienced. If he were 21 and weighted 290, okay, he's still growing. He's 25, this is it, he's not going to get bigger, he's not going to get smarter, he's only going to get slower, sooner.

 

 

Big ugly white dude from the Midwest as an OT, Love it

 

since when has Utah been the Midwest? Dude is from the land of the crazies.

Im from Poughkeepsie. I don't know the true meaning of Geography. I'm from upstate yet live in the lower Quarter of the State. CNY is the most Nothern Point and Western NY is in the center of the State.

We do need an offensive tackle with more upside and ability than Bobby Hart currently has. I don't think Bobby Hart can stay at tackle and would be better at Guard. I still think Pugh should be in the mix at the tackle positions with the addition of Fluker to the roster.

 

I'd be ok with Bolles. Age is not an issue, Bolles is younger than Aaron Ross when he was drafted. This team will be lucky to match the success of last year with the offensive line it currently has without significant help in the draft.

Bolles has the best feet in the draft. He scored a 9 on the Wonderlic. That's not good. I believe he's the most NFL-ready pass-protector from the OT position in the draft. When he pulls right he delivers a big pop in the whole. He plays with a lot of effort and nastiness. He does start to lean and get off balance at times. But what he doesn't do is let guys get past him with speed. That's the big plus with him, and it's a huge one. The Giants don't have a guy like him with that kind of feet. He measured at the combine at 297 lbs. The size thing is not a concern, nor is the age thing. For me, it's will he clean up some of the technique issues... cause if he does, he'll be a top-tier left tackle in the NFL. And to be clear, he really does have that kind of upside, and it's a very real upside.

However, I think Ramczyk is a more complete tackle right now with the higher floor. The hip thing is not that big of a deal, and don't let anyone fool you otherwise. He'll be better off with better health long-term and movement ability BECAUSE he had the surgery. Ramczyk plays with better balance and better anchor.

 

Personally, I think Ramczyk is a bit safer, and I still think he can be a very good LT. He's my preference. I would not be upset if Bolles was the pick however, because I think he can play early and I think he has a big ceiling.

 

As far as Cam Robinson, I think he is NFL-ready right now to play somewhere on the line. I think he can play left tackle, but may struggle a bit there early. He doesn't have what I would term slow feet. His feet are decent. Really strong though, very long arms, huge hands. Robinson would definitely help this team. The only concern I have with him is the incident with the gun. He had a stolen gun under his seat, some marijuana, and another gun in his lap when pulled over. That has to concern you on a couple of levels. You take that away, and he's easily the best of the three, and probably is the pick at 23 (and still could be).

I'm not completely sold on any of the OTs in the draft. Think it's an off year for the position. That said, if we go with one, I like Ramczyk best. And, I think that there are only maybe 2 or 3 OTs worthy of the first round grade, which means that we may not get a shot at one sitting at 23. None are worth trading up for.

 

So, at 23, if Ramczyk is there, take him. If not, go a different direction.

Hey guys, we are on a wait list for tix for the Giants v Tampa this year. We will have a 20+ group, overwhelmingly Giants fans, coming to the game. We were told we were not guaranteed tix. We are definitely TRYING to go to the game this year, and I think it will happen. If any of you are thinking of making it a trip, let me know. You will not be disappointed, I know the spots you need to visit, it will be a fantastic visit.
