A pair of offensive tackles who could be available when the New York Giants select 19th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft were reportedly extremely impressive on Tuesday during Day 2 of practice for the 2013 Senior Bowl.

Eric Fisher of Central Michigan and Lane Johnson of Oklahoma have been drawing rave reviews.

Daniel Jeremiah of has been especially impressed with Johnson.

"He's solidified himself in my opinion on two practices as a first-round pick. ... he is a left tackle, he can kick out, he can cover up speed rushers," Jeremiah said. "He's also shown surprising strength to anchor down vs. the powerful bull-rushers he's seen this week. He's establishing himself as a first-round pick, almost a lock at this point in time."

Jeremiah also praised Fisher, saying he "has helped himself immensely."

SB Nation's Randy Booth rounded up a series of reports praising Fisher and came away thinking that Fisher could, at the least, challenge Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M to be the first offensive tackle selected.
