  • NY Giants' Scout on Lane Johnson: "That's My Left Tackle"

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/21/...y-left-tackle/

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants and General Manager Jerry Reese have a lot of decisions to make about their offensive line this offseason. Both Will Beattyand Kevin Boothe are free agents, Sean Locklear is also a free agent and trying to work back from a devastating injury, and a decision needs to be made on David Diehl, who will command a $4.1 million base salary in 2013. The common feeling is that the team will look to the NFL Draft to fill some of their holes, and one target may be Oklahoma Sooners offensive tackle Lane Johnson.

    The 6'6'', 303 lbs. lineman has impressed most onlookers, and is considered by many to be one of, if not the best tackle available in the 2013 NFL Draft. If nothing else, he is projected to go in the first-round come April, and may be available when the Giants select at #19.

    Matt Miller of NFL Draft Scout, who is in Mobile, Alabama covering the Senior Bowl, was among those impressed with Johnson. But he wasn't the only one. Miller had one of the Giants scouts in attendance remark "that's my left tackle" after watching Johnson practice." Read more...

          Well I guess we're not interested in Lane Johnson.

              Maybe we can get the Raiders to take him by putting out these reports.

                  That's not a huge issue if we can sign Beatty

                    Matt Miller doesnt work for nfl draft scout. He works for bleacher report and New Era Scouting.

                      Is there any way that Locklear is even ready for the start of next season? Seems real risky to put our eggs in that basket.

                        I doubt we even offer him another contract. He was average as is, he's old, and that was a brutal looking injury.

                        I wouldn't even lay one egg in that basket.

                          Yeah, but that's a small detail.

                          What's far more significant, in my view, is that for a Giants scout to --allegedly--give voice in the vicinity of anyone in the media to a preference for any player scouted is a violation of Articles 1, 2, and 3 of Jerry Reese's Credo for all player personnel decisions: never, ever, give away any player preferences before the actual moment of announcement.

                          Because of that, this article is 100% suspect.

                            Completely agree ---- which means we need a RT (don't see any way that we go into next season with Diehl as our RT).

                              Could be Brewer.
