Giants add a center in round two

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.

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

  2. 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!

  3. Ha ha ha silly gnats fans with that corny in Reese we trust garbage. Get real you missed the playoffs 4 outta the last five seasons and you aren’t doing anything this season. Good luck you should be happy the skins are in your division or you would finish at the bottom

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. Its funny how Many people say Eli thru 25 picks he’s gonna throw more its played out like he’s the only Qb to ever throw picks He doesn’t care about fantasy stats who cares
