2012 NFL Draft Round 4: Giants Select Brandon Mosley, OT, Auburn

Now that's what I'm talking about! The Giants addressed two glaring needs in the fourth round, choosing TE Adrien Robinson from Cincinnati at No. 127 overall, and now they have chosen OT Brandon Mosley from Auburn with the 131st overall pick, also in the fourth round. Mosley only played on the offensive line for just two seasons, moving from tight end, where he played in junior college before coming to Auburn. And at 6'6", 314 pounds, OT was an easier move for Mosley, at least size-wise.

Here is what Pro Football Weekly had to say about Mosley in its draft profile:

Athletic, inconsistent, blue-collar converted tight end who did not take his game to the next level as a senior, but has upside worth investing in. At worst, should develop into a versatile, swing backup, but has starter potential as a right tackle if he's able to make strength gains.

And then here is more from NFL Draft Scout. Is Mosley going to develop into the big left tackle we need here to protect Eli Manning's blind side for years? Time will tell.

What do you guys think?
