Giants Roster Breakdown: Will Beatty

Will Beatty - [USA Today Sports]

Will Beatty emerged as a quality left tackle during the 2012 season. Can he continue that growth in 2013 and gain a reputation as one of the league's elite offensive linemen?

We continue rolling through players in our breakdown of the New York Giants' 90-man roster. Here, we focus on starting left tackle Will Beatty.

2012 Season In Review

Beatty began 2012 with questions hovering over him. He had started 10 games in 2011 before going down to a detached retina. He missed most of the offseason program with a back injury, and did not start Week 1 as he was still rounding into shape. Once he took over at left tackle in Week 2, however, he answered all the questions.

Beatty allowed only three sacks and no hits on Eli Manning in 967 snaps, and graded out at +22.3 in the Pro Football Focus scoring system, eight among the league's left tackles. His +10.9 score for run blocking was fifth-best among all tackles, left or right.

2013 Season Outlook

Provided that he stays healthy I see no reason why Beatty should not take another step forward and become acknowledges as one of the league's best left tackles. At 28, he should be entering his best years. That should make the Giants, and Eli Manning in particular, feel good.
