The concerns with the Giants offense have now pivoted to the offensive line (like that wasn’t an issue before? With the subtraction of the Giants’ best offensive lineman, Kevin Zeitler, the offensive guard position remains a question mark. Shane Lemieux, a fifth-round rookie out of Oregon last season, was a solid run blocker for the Giants while was benched after he returned from his bout with with COVID-19.
However, I still have major concerns with the Giants offensive line. If Slater was not available and it came down to Parsons, Surtain, and Darrisaw I would have picked Darrisaw. There just is a need for the Giants to strengthen their offensive line to the point where it is an asset.
Other players considered: Micah Parsons, Patrick Surtain, Alijah Vera-Tucker In my eyes, it’s a must that the Giants come out of this draft with a starting-caliber interior offensive lineman. For me, this is the perfect marriage of value and need. Davis, 6-foot-3½, 315 pounds, is a plug-and-play NFL starting caliber right guard who is good value at this point in the draft.
