    Per Waltfootball, Giants scout overherad saying "thats my LT" about L.Johnson..

    Walt football mocked Lane Johnson to us at pick 20 in todays Mock and at the end of his reasonings why, he said it helps matters that a GIANTS scout was recently overheard saying "Thats my LT" referring to the athletic pass blocker from Oklahoma..

    Obviously i don't know how much truth there is to this, and could mean nothing, but in draft threads, anything GIANTS goes....


    Heres the Pick and stuff walt wrote...


    New York Giants: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
    The offensive tackle position is a mess for the Giants. Will Beatty and Sean Locklear are both free agents, while David Diehl has transformed into a human turnstile recently. This is an area that desperately needs to be addressed to keep Eli Manning from getting too banged up as he advances into his 30s.

    Lane Johnson had a terrific Senior Bowl and is now in top-20 consideration. Sealing the deal here is that a Giants scout was recently overheard saying, "that's my left tackle."

    I've heard this story too from some other source. Lane Johnson looked very good.

    Really like the player but I don't buy the scout saying that as any serious indicator of where we are going. For all we know, he just has Lane Johnson ranked #1 for tackles. We might as well just focus on resigning Beatty and take advantage of the fact the Ts this FA class are deep.

    Spot on. Scout is probably really high on this guy but it is no indication of the direction the Giants will go in the draft. It only tells us that they like this guy and he's a possibility.

    I think drafting for the O-line is an investment in the future, but a FA will almost always produce as good or better than most rookies.

    Coulden't agree more.. If anything, it may or may not give us a indicator that were intrested in the player, and hes on our Short list.. Not to mention, just becuase the scout said Left Tackle, dosen't mean he coulden't play RT for a few yrs and then move to LT...

    Anyone who compares someone to LT should be kicked in the ding-ding on general principle.

    And then be forced to watch LT film for a month so they know WTF they're talking about next time.

    That's my left tackle, not that's my Lawrence Taylor

    Some people take offense if you use the letters "LT" to refer to anything other than Taylor, whether it's Left Tackle, Ladanian Tomlinson, Lord & Taylor, Light Truck, or Looney Tunes...

    And now that makes much more sense.

    My original comment stands though.
