    David Yankey NFL Draft: Stanford Guard Could Be Perfect Fit For Giants

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...or_giants.html

    Excerpt: "At Stanford, David Yankey played in a power offense while the rest of college football continued to spread out.

    The 6-5, 314-pound offensive lineman, who had a meeting with the Giants on Wednesday, knew he had a different makeup coming into the NFL Draft. He's rated as the top guard in his class despite coming out a year early. He has scouts paying close attention to his technique to see if it matches his natural power.

    But he's not the least bit worried about getting pigeonholed as a run blocker, especially if he's drafted to a pass-heavy team.

    "As long as you have the athleticism and the footwork and everything to pass block at an elite level, it can't hurt to be a really good run blocker that has a physical mean streak nowadays," he said." Read more...

    Yankey is a very good trade back option.. I wouldn't be upset at all..

    He did play at the LT position for Stanford in 2012, allowing just one sack. He was moved inside so the highly touted Andrus Peat could slide over at LT. I wouldn't be shocked at all if teams could potentially view Yankey as another Pugh but perhaps with slightly more upside?
