Excerpt: "Ball State offensive lineman Kitt O'Brien went undrafted during the 2013 NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) Draft, but like most UDFA, he remained hopeful that a team would eventually give him a ring and an opportunity. And that opportunity, coincidentally enough, came on his birthday.

While talking to his Grandmother, who was wishing him well on his special day, O'Brien received a call from his agent who had some good news: the New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) had invited him to their rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis. He had also been invited to tryout for the Detroit (http://www.giants101.com/tag/detroit/) Lions.


“It was like a dream come true,” O’Brien said less than two hours after getting the call (http://www.thestarpress.com/article/20130430/SPORTS20/304300020/new-york-giants-and-ball-state-and-kitt-o-brien). “It’s all the good things that I’ve always wanted and it’s coming to fruition.”


The 6'5'', 325 lbs. guard was then left to weigh his options: did he have a better chance of earning a spot with the Lions or the Giants, who have obvious holes along the offensive line? The question, as it turned out, was a no brainer and O'Brien went with Big Blue." Read more...

They certainly are looking at a lot of wide bodies. When John Mara suggested they needed to improve in the trenches, someone was listening.

good luck to him...Out of a group of 10 new faces may come a couple of keepers. We need so much help to upgrade the OL and its depth, that I think we should cast a wide net (which seems like their approach on both sides of the ball this off season)
