New York Giants
Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, Spencer Pulley, Kevin Zeitler, Andrew Thomas, Cameron Fleming, Nick Gates, Tyler Haycraft
This unit is perfectly average. In fact, you probably could not come up with another unit that is neither good, nor bad, but just “there” then the New York Giants offensive line.
Solder and Zeitler have combined for over 225 starts in the NFL since 2011 and 2012, respectively. Neither have ever made the Pro Bowl. Pulley and Hernandez are both younger and on different sides of the spectrum.
While Pulley has not been able to stay healthy, missing 15 games over the past two seasons, Hernandez has started every game in his two years in the Big Apple. Again, perfectly average.
The wild card for the Giants is certainly Thomas. Using the fourth overall pick in this year’s draft on the Georgia offensive tackle, he needs to come in and play at a high level immediately. Both he and Solder can play either tackle spot, however, no team is drafting an offensive lineman that high to play right tackle.
There was no consensus as to which offensive tackle was the best in the draft class but Thomas seemingly had the highest floor. That sounds like it fits exactly with what New York is going for here with this position. Just fine, baby!
