    NY Giants' Positional Review: Offensive Line

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/1/17...tty-chris-snee

    Excerpt: "Let's continue our series of positional reviews for the New York Giants by focusing today on the offensive line. There are really two ways of looking at this group, and which side you fall on really depends on whether you are a glass half-empty or glass half-full type of person.

    Look at this group and there are a number of positive things to focus on. There are also, however, things to be concerned about.

    The Good

    -- The Giants allowed only 20 quarterback sacks in 2012, best in the league; they averaged 4.6 yards per rushing attempt, 7th in the league; Will Beatty emerged as a stud left tackle who should be a long-term fixture; Chris Snee had a bounce-back season.

    The Bad


    -- The play of right tackle David Diehl left a lot to be desired, and there is no obvious long-term answer at that position. Sean Locklear is a capable journeyman, and might be a better player than Diehl. James Breweris a young player who either hasn't had, or hasn't earned, an opportunity in two seasons. There really is little depth. Brandon Mosley and Matt McCants, drafted in 2012, are still unknown and unproven.


    The Individuals


    Will Beatty -- After missing most of the pre-season with a back injury, Beatty had a breakout 2012 season. He became a premier left tackle, allowing only three sacks, no quarterback hits and only 22 pressures in 569 pass-blocking snaps. His +22.4 placed him 11th among NFL tackles in 2012, and only a relatively high number of penalties (11) hurt his overall score.


    Kevin Boothe
    -- Until this year he was really considered a journeyman better suited to be a backup guard and center, and maybe an emergency tackle. Had a solid season while starting full-time for the first time since he was a rookie with the Oakland Raiders in 2006. Ended the season with a +8.2 PFF grade." Read more...
