2011 NFL Draft: Offensive Line Help Available In Middle Rounds

One of the things I always try to emphasize when studying the NFL Draft is that you can't focus strictly on the first round. There are seven rounds, and effectively using the choices throughout the draft is a key for any NFL franchise.

During Jerry Reese's tenure as New York Giants general manager he has had some great success with middle to late-round picks. Albeit more in 2007 and 2008 than he has had of late.

With that said, though, we know the Giants will look to supplement their offensive and defensive lines at some point during the proceedings. ESPN's Steve Muench has put together a look at some middle-round type linemen who could provide good value for the Giants or any of the NFL's other 31 teams.

Take a look at some of the names in there. They may never come into play for the Giants, but tuck them away in the back of your mind just in case.
