Thread: Will Beatty

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Will Beatty

    I've seen multiple threads regarding Cruz and his contract situation. Many folks throughout those threads express their desire to keep Will Beatty around, some even saying he's more important to the team than Cruz.

    A stud LT is very valuable to a team, but I'm wondering why is there so much love for Beatty? I didn't pay much attention to him individually, but as a whole, the OL has been subpar for 2+years now. We get no push in the run game, and Eli is under consistent pressure. I'm not bashing Beatty at all. I'm just curious to why there's so much love for him. Was he really that good?

    Beatty played great this year. He graded out as the 4th best LT.

    This is where I'm kind of going with my thread. Is he really that good, or does he just stand out on a below average line?

    Kase-1 mentioned LT is very important, and I agree. OL/DL are the most important units on a team besides QB so, again, this isn't a thread to knock Beatty. I'm just curious to know if he's as good as, what seems to be the majority of folks on this board, thinks he is.

    He was graded as the 4th best LT in the NFL by PFF. I'd have to say that even if their data is off a little it still means he's a top 10 LT in the NFL.

    11. New York Giants (31)


    PB – 20th, RB – 4th, PEN – 12th

    Stud: Though he gets next to no praise, Will Beatty (+22.4) had a year that warranted Pro Bowl consideration. The penalties aren’t ideal, but there are not many left tackles who can keep their quarterback upright and generate movement in the run game. Beatty also ranked as the 11th best OT in the NFL last season

    So this actually shows he's better at run block than pass block? Interesting. What's PEN mean?

    Buddy333 who said he isn't that good?

    You asked if he was really that good. I asked why he is not that good. Another posted also said he was not that good.
