New York Giants 2012 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Desmond Stapleton, OT, Rutgers

We are winding down with our series of 2012 NFL Draft Prospect Profiles. We have done most of the top candidates for early selection by the New York Giants, and now we are looking mostly for mid- to late-round possibilities.

One ot those might be the subject of today's profile, offensive tackle Desmond Stapleton, a player from right in the Giants backyard -- Rutgers University. Stapleton is the brother or Darnell Stapleton, a member of Pittsburgh's offensive line when the Steelers won the Super Bowl following the 2008 season. Stapleton's agent, Ed Wasielewski, confirms that the 6-foot-5, 288-pound Stapleton worked out at the Giants local pro day. So, there is some level of curiosity.

Wes Bunting of the National Football Post does not see much of an NFL future for Stapleton. He says:

Possesses a thin frame, lacks power when asked to anchor/stick to blocks and isn't fluid enough to mirror consistently with NFL caliber defensive ends.

Stapleton actually lost his job as Rutgers starting right offensive tackle during the 2011 season and was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine. He participated in the Rutgers Pro Day, and the local workouts for both the New York Giants and New York Jets.

On The Banks points out that Stapleton was considered Rutgers best lineman as a junior before having an up-and-down senior season. He has experience at both tackle spots.
