Giants add a center in round two

Richburg AP

The reinvention of quarterback Eli Manning will happen more quickly if he has better blocking.  The Giants addressed that issue with their second-round pick on Friday night, selecting Colorado State center Weston Richburg.

The top-rated center by DraftNasty.com, Richburg has played center, guard, and tackle.  He also was a team captain, which suggests he’ll bring leadership to the offensive line.

The knock on Richburg is that his size, at 6-3, 300 pounds, is only average and that his frame isn’t wide enough.

A former high-school quarterback and hurdler, Richburg provides intriguing agility for the Giants offensive line, and the team hopes to get the most that it can from the remaining seasons of Eli Manning’s career.

    The Transformation of the O-line continues! I love it, Eli will bounce back with this new line for sure.

    An intriguing blocking prospect indeed, but he is a little raw and has to improve at staying focused on what to do on long-developing plays.

    Florio, I went to high school with Richburg. He wasn’t a QB or hurdler. He was a shot put thrower and always played on the line.

    It’s the reinvention of the offense. NOT the reinvention of Eli. You don’t reinvent a two time Super Bowl MVP.

    Love the draft moves so far.

    Go Blue!

    Hey Bigblue I did not mention anything about re-inventing of Eli, I said it’s a transformation of the O-line, with an improved O-line Eli will get back to his old form.

    Hilarious. GM will be fired after they miss the playoffs again and Eli throws another 25 interception.

    LOL, a lot of scared NFC East teams fans, this was a very solid pick. So far Reese is having a good draft.

    Step by step between free agency and the draft, g-men doing a good job of addressing needs… Problem is they have so many… Need d-line help still, we’ll see what they do and how it all translates on the field… But Reese is gig is safe. Hilarious how people don’t get the Giant brain trust and how they operate.

    in 2 or 3 years the giants will have one of the league’s best o- lines
