Off-season Moves

Left tackle Will Beatty was signed to rich long-term contract. Starting left guard Kevin Boothe tested free agency, but ultimately returned to the Giants. Starting right tackle David Diehl accepted a pay cut to return. GM Jerry Reese also made it clear during his press conference on Thursday that he expects third-year player James Brewer to challenge those two veterans for playing time, saying "it is time for him to get in there and play."

Draft Possibilities

Endless. That's pretty much the best way to describe the Giants' offensive line draft possibilities. Will they take Alabama right tackle D.J. Fluker at 19? Will he even be available? If he isn't, would the Giants pull the trigger on one of the two big time guards in the draft -- Chance Warmack of Alabama or Jonathan Cooper of North Carolina -- if one or both fall to the 19th overall pick.

Will they look for second-day value? Will they do what they do so often -- wait until Day 3 of the draft and add one or two long-term project type linemen?
