    I'm hoping for offensive line, DT, or LB in round 1.

      OT, DT and then possibly LB.

        Ya, but if u take a guy like Lane Johnson, u could play him at RT, while also keeping in mind, down the rd, u might lose Beatty(after new contract up), and hopefully u got a guy in Lane Johnson u can then slide over to LT.. Also, Beatty has been somewhat injury prone, so a guy like Lane JOhnson could offer verstaility in that he could slide over to LT in case of injury as well.. When Johnson's rook contract is up, and beattys is getting close or is also up(new contract), u would also have options to either let Beatty go and slide Johnson over to LT, or resign both, or whatever...

          You can find every positon later, and u can also strike out bigtime.. Later is a huge question mark in the draft or as UDF's..

            Except Lane Johnson is not really a RT type player. He is a LT.

            This is the strangest forum though, never would believe a place so obsessed with getting guards and right tackles.

              Go through any list of the top RTs in the league. How many of them were 1st rounders?

                I just don't see Lane Johnson or Eric Fisher dropping to 19 like a bunch of people want either. There are teams ahead of us with far worse OT situations that will see these guys as future LTs to protect their QB for 10+ years. If you really want a RT in this draft, you could get someone like Menelik Watson in the 3rd, no?

                  Regardless of what postion, we need to hit a home run in the 1st/2nd & solid players throughout....We cannot afford a crap draft....

                      It dosen't matter to me about that, becuase if u get a guy like Lane Johnson, ur getting a bookend tackle who projects to be able to handle the blindside as well.. I have no issue having 2 stalwart OT's at both ends of the Oline... And again, down the line if we lose Beatty, we have a guy to put in at LT...

                          Same size as Henry Melton. He would be fine and he could always add weight so it isn't an issue.

                              What do you guys think?
                              Maybe they have a starter in mind in FA

                                You may be right but don't kid yourself, you don't find " NFL ready " plug and play RT and G in later rounds. Not saying the Giants have to go after RT or G in first day but obviously will depend in what they do signing their own FAs or going after FA veterans or if they will continue cutting guys on roster. But if a team decides to fill a G or RT hole thru the draft then you have to go after them early.
