Positional Rankings: Offensive Line

FoxSports.com ranked the Giants Offensive Line the best in the league.  Here is what they had to say:

Starters:
LT David Diehl
LG Rich Seubert
C Shaun O’Hara
RG Chris Snee
RT Kareem McKenzie
Backups:
T Guy Whimper
T/C Adam Koets
T Andrew Carnahan
G/T Kevin Boothe
T Cliff Louis
G/T Terrance Pennington
G Tutan Reyes
G/T Orrin Thompson
T Will Beatty

The starting unit returns for the third consecutive season and last year several observers called it the best O-line in the league. The drafting of Beatty (in the second round) solidifies the tackle position. He’ll start off as the backup to McKenzie but is a natural LT, which could result in 2010 of a return of Diehl to LG and Seubert to the bench. Whimper will be pressed by Beatty, a blue-chip prospect. O’Hara is a veteran who, along with Snee, went to the Pro Bowl. He has at least one more effective season remaining. Reyes was signed as a veteran backup with experience. He’s 6-3, 305 and has 10 seasons in the league. Carnahan has some ability, Boothe has filled in at guard and tackle and the rest will simply spend a hard-working summer vacation before moving on.

Barring injury the Giants O-Line will again provide Eli with ample time and Jacobs and Co. plenty of room to run.

    This is indeed a great O-line, but can they keep their string of durability going yet another year? Forget Favre – it’s Diehl who’s the true iron man of the conference… unbelievable durability. It’s truly incredible… but Kareem McKenzie has been having back trouble for a while now. Knock on wood Rich Seubert won’t get injured again (I must admit I didn’t think he’d come back from that catastrophic leg break, but was overjoyed when he did). Beatty will be learning this season, but it’s about damn time Whimper, Koets, and Boothe step up so there isn’t such a drop off when a starter sits. JR was smart again to pick up Tutan Reyes as insurance. But if Koets can’t get it done should O’Hara sit, what’s the plan?
