This is part of Nick Falato's review of Ben Bredeson on 9/1/21 on this site:Neither would I. But I'm not sure if he's starter material.
“I studied Bredeson coming out of Michigan. He wasn't known for his athletic ability, but he brought a lot of toughness to the position. He was a consistent player who was strong in the run game, and he's also a solid overall pass protector”.
“He may not be the most athletic, but I believe the Giants traded for a player who can impact this team for the next three seasons - that's not a standard acquisition on the market for the draft value surrendered”.
Given the state of the Giants offensive line, they should give Brederson a chance to start this year.
With my latest mock draft, I had the Giants drafting: Tyler Linderbaum, Ikem Ekwonu and Zion Johnson
with their 1st 3 picks. I think all 3 could be day 1 starters. I also had Bruss and Wattenberg as guys who could be developed.
It will be interesting to see how Joe Shoen will address the offensive line between the draft and free agency.
