Eisen's Mailbag: Offensive Line

Posted Feb 20, 2013's Michael Eisen answers your questions!

Today’s edition of The Mailbag on

With the concerns around the offensive line getting younger and getting the run game back, what is the likelihood they draft a solid guard for the next 10 years? I really think if they take Jonathan Cooper or Chance Warmack at left guard, the run game will be an instant improvement. Also, I think Brian Winters or even Larry Warford in the second round can also bring a lot of value.

I am not permitted by organizational policy to comment on specific draft-eligible players – a refrain you will read frequently in the next two months. But I would be surprised if the Giants didn’t try to infuse their offensive line with youth this offseason. I don’t think you can draft someone with the anticipation he will be a fixture in your lineup for 10 years, though it worked with Chris Snee. Actually, Snee is entering his 10th season. He recently admitted he considered retiring after Super Bowl XLVI. Snee is looking forward to the 2013 season, but it’s safe to say he’s not going to play too many more years. Kevin Boothe, the other starting guard, is a free agent. The Giants have no obvious successor at either position, so importing a guard is a likely move before training camp.
