A look at the Giants O-Line depth for 2015

A common theme of John Mara's, Jerry Reese's and Tom Coughlon's press conferences after last season stressed the team's desire to improve up front to not only protect Eli Manning a little better, but more importantly spark a running game that couldn't find its footing for much of 2014.

Will Beatty returns at left tackle, where he bounced back from a down year in 2013 to once again establish himself as one of the more reliable tackles in the league. He protects Eli Manning's blind side and will do so again in 2015.

The Giants hope to have Geoff Schwartz on the field after toe and ankle injuries robbed him of his first year with the Giants after signing as a free agent last offseason.

With the ability to play either guard spot, but also move out to right tackle, he gives the Giants much needed versatility on the line.

Weston Richburg will move to center after playing his rookie season away from his natural position as guard. He will replace veteran J.R. Walton, who was released this offseason.

Justin Pugh returns for his third season at right tackle where he continues to show improvement.

Some believe that he could move inside to guard if the need arrives, but Pugh has started at tackle and has done a solid job for two seasons.

John Jerry, the team's starter at RG last year, returns for another season with the Giants.

The team also opted to sign Marshall Newhouse this offseason, who has played both tackle positions and a little bit of guard for the Packers and Bengals.

The Giants will also continue to develop Brandon Mosley, who is entering his fourth season and was the starting guard for much of training camp last year. 2013 seventh round pick Eric Herman will also compete for a roster spot at guard. Veteran center and guard Dallas Reynolds will be back to provide veteran depth inside. The team signed former CFL All-Star Brett Jones, who will have a chance to contribute on the interior of the offensive line.

The Giants also added Michael Bamiro, Emmett Clearly and Adam Gettis to compete with Troy Kropog and the rest of the team's offensive linemen for a roster spot
