Giants Roster Breakdown: Brandon Mosley

Brandon Mosley is the subject of our latest New York Giants player breakdown.

Brandon Mosley had his rookie season aborted by an ankle injury that landed him on injured reserve. As we continue our player-by-player breakdown of the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp it is time to discuss Mosley's prospects for the upcoming season.

2012 Season In Review

The Giants drafted the 6-foot-5, 318-pound Mosley in the fourth round (131st overall) out of Auburn. He was converted tight end/defensive lineman and scouting reports looked at Mosley as a developmental project. Mosley struggled during training camp and, as we previously mentioned, spent his rookie season on IR.

2013 Outlook

Mosley was a right tackle at Auburn, but during OTAs and mini-camp he was lining up as the Giants' first-team left guard. Usual left guard Kevin Boothe has been playing center with David Baas recovering from injuries. As the Giants construct their offensive line -- including which players will be the backups at which positions -- Mosley will be an interesting player to watch. Last season's ankle injury means we really don't know what kind of player he can be, but the Giants have apparently moved him inside. If Boothe were forced to play center I can't see Mosley starting at left guard. Someone from the Justin Pugh/David Diehl/James Brewer triumvirate would likely take that spot depending on who is starting at right tackle. Mosley, though seems to have an inside track right now on a roster spot as a reserve. His likely competition is veteran backup Jim Cordle and 2013 seventh-round pick Eric Herman.
