If Mangold is signed you have to think that somebody, most likely Fulker, is sliding out to tackle to compete with Hart. That still leaves us with Flowers at LT unless they draft somebody very high, or make a surprsie move like Pugh out to LT. I like getting the big experienced linemen coming in; but the mystery of the 2017 LT is driving me crazy. It's looking like that might be left for draft day; in which case, you've either got Flowers or a rookie protecting Eli's blind side .
If we go Mangold I don't think were going OL in the 1st rd. like I thought we were. Ramzak, (sorry for spelling) Boles, Lamp, Robinson I felt 1 of them would be there at #23 but were not going 1st rd. to sit on the bench, at least I would hope not. Apple last years 1st rd. pick didn't start the 1st half last year but did get significant playing time before starting at end of year. OL doesn't get plug in playing time like other positions. I think if the Mangold signing goes through it could very well set a different direction in the draft than OL being a Ist or 2nd rd. pick. For that matter 1st thru 4th I wouldn't think would be a priority with the other holes we should aim at to strengthen.
Football has been very, very good to us.
After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back

It makes sense for any vet who has a strong desire to get a ring. Mangold has made a ton of money and now he has a shot to play in the playoffs and not have to move somewhere else. Its a great situation for Mangold to be in. They should seriously think about calling Clady also and offer $1mill and maybe even Revis as the 4th corner / safety. Its just a thought but we would be adding much needed veteran depth in the OL and secondary. These moves should not change the drafting process either.
