Cody Latimer Color Rush Jersey

  • 23 May
    It was obvious from early on in the New York Giants 2018
    season that they were going to need offensive linemen over the 2019 offseason.
    It made sense Kareem

    , then, to concentrate on offensive lines when
    thinking about which games to watch in college football every Saturday. That
    often lead to the common refrain of “watch Wisconsin”, and for good reason. The
    Badgers fielded one of the best offensive lines in college football last year,
    while also running an offense which incorporated many “pro-style” concepts,
    particularly in its running game.Left guard Michael Deiter wasn’t the most
    heralded member of that Wisconsin offensive line, but he might be the most
    experienced and versatile. A red-shirt senior, Deiter has spent time at left
    tackle, center, and left guard for the Badgers. He likely won’t be a starter at
    tackle at the next level, but that experience, versatility, and pedigree are
    sure to intrigue general managers -- including Dave Gettleman.MeasurablesHeight:
    6-foot-4Weight: 320 poundsProsBig frame with the size the NFL prefers. Carries
    his weight well with little “sloppy” extra mass. Has played all over Wisconsin’s
    line, which increases his likelihood of finding a home on an NFL line. Excellent
    mobility for a guard. Easily able to pull or work off blocks to the second
    level. Deals well with stunts and twists. Generally plays with good pad level,
    flashing the ability to “strike, leverage, and drive” in the run game. Looks for
    work and plays through the whistle. Flashes the ability to deliver a jolt with
    his punch.Named an offensive captain for his senior season.ConsOccasionally
    lunges and plays out over his toes. Height can work against him inside. If his
    pad level rises he can get put on roller skates. Occasionally catches more
    athletic rushers rather than striking with his punch.Winds up on the ground a
    bit too much. Balance might be an issue.Prospect Video(Deiter is left guard,

    Does He Fit The Giants?The Giants need help and competition from the center
    position to the right tackle position. Deiter comes from one of the true
    offensive line factories in college football, and plays like a “Wisconsin”
    offensive lineman. He is probably a bit tall to be a center in the NFL -- though
    his mobility is a good fit for the position -- but he should be able to play
    either right or left guard. Deiter’s size and frame suggest an offensive
    tackle Robert Thomas

    , but he doesn’t deal with speed off the edge very well,
    and he might be better inside. That could impact his draft stock, but general
    managers are (slowly) coming around to the idea that all offensive line
    positions are important. His mobility, particularly for his size, makes him
    scheme diverse. Deiter should be attractive to teams which run zone schemes,
    man-gap schemes, and everything in between. He will need to get more comfortable
    dealing with athletic rushers inside, and at times can get caught lunging or
    letting his pads rise, both of which are dangerous given his height. However,
    when he plays with good leverage he is a bully inside and has starter upside. As
    long as he can be comfortable with playing on the right side, the Giants should
    give Deiter a long look in the run-up to the draft. The 2019 Big Blue View
    community mock draft went a long way to improving the Giants’ offensive and
    defensive lines."After two days of polling and drafting, the 2019 Big Blue
    Draft-A-Thon is finally over. In this year’s take on our annual community mock
    draft, we turned the New York Giants’ draft over to the fans, using The Draft
    Network’s draft simulator. Posting a poll for each of the Giants’ 12 picks (save
    their back-to-back picks in the fifth round, which were done with one post), the
    Big Blue View community voted on who they wanted the Giants to draft of the best
    players available. The Giants finished their draft by selecting Clemson EDGE
    Austin Bryant with the 245th pick. Bryant will likely begin his career as a pass
    rushing specialist as he recovers from a torn pectoral muscle suffered late in
    the 2018 season. But rushing the passer is something he does very well, posting
    15 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks in each of the last two years. Bryant could
    wind up being a steal this late in the draft if he is able to become an every
    (or even most) snap player.Here are the full results:6. Ed Oliver (iDL,
    Houston)17. Jonah Williams

    Auburn)171. Mike Edwards (S, Kentucky)180. Foster Moreau (TE, LSU)232. Isaiah
    Prince (OT, Ohio State)245. Austin Bryant (EDGE, Clemson)While the necessary
    rules of the draft were limiting (sticking to best player available as much as
    possible and only showing 10 players per poll), it does show how quickly even
    deep positions can dry up in the draft. After passing on an EDGE early in the
    draft, the Giants had to wait until the end of the fourth round for an EDGE to
    re-enter their value range (with some help from the moderator adjusting for a
    receiver and running back heavy board). Ultimately, this exercise was done for
    fun and to help pass the time until the actual draft gets here.So then Big Blue
    View, are you happy with your performance? And more importantly, did you have
    fun?
