Should Giants Focus on Offensive Line or Cornerback in First Round of 2014 NFL Draft?

As the 2013 NFL Season is coming to a close, questions arise for the offseason. The offense is in shambles, the defense can’t stop the pass, and the coaches aren’t putting the team in situations to win.

But one thing if for sure, the NFL Draft is coming, and some serious decisions must be made. So the question is: Where do the Giants start first?

It is definitely necessary to fix the offensive line to protect Eli Manning, as he has been pressured week in and week out, and all facets of the game suffer immensely for it.

However, the Cornerback position is completely decimated of any playmakers, and opposing quarterbacks are having no problem throwing the ball down the field.

If you were the GM of the Giants, what would you do?

Personally, with a early-mid round selection in 2014, I would target a top-tier corner to strengthen the defense and complete one side of the ball.

And in the second and third rounds, I would go out and select some lineman to build upon the foundation set forth in 2013.

What would you do as GM? Comment what you think the Giants should do.

    Feel like they need to go o-line especially if Gilbride is back. Gilbride’s offense is predicated on running the ball to open up the down field passing game. WIth the Giants having no real threat of the run game this year, teams are able to pin their ears back and get after Eli. He has no pocket to step into which leads to some of the mind boggling decisions he makes. I would hope the Gilbride is gone after this year, but hope they still go with their top rated offensive lineman regardless of the coaching staff.

    Cornerback for sure. It take yrs of teamwork to get the O-Line comfortable. That is not going to happen by one draft pick. We seen a lot of O-Lines picked up in the lottery last yr. How many of them would be drafted so high in this yrs draft or by the same team. Those picks were wasted on what could had been more impact type players. Even our pick was a waste. You could had gotten somebody in the later rounds to produce what Puig did. 0-line can be unpredictable and inconsistent. O-Line is like relief pitching in the MLB. They have some of the biggest roles in the game but how many teams draft for a quality reliever.
