The New York Giants’ offseason is already in full swing and the preparations for the 2019 NFL Draft have begun with scouts meeting prospects at the East-West Shrine Game practices.

Giants assistant coach Lunda Wells is working with offensive L=linemen who will be entering this years draft as the prospects prepare for the East-West Shrine game itself. Wells is coaching the offensive linemen for the East team and you can bet he is keeping his eye on the prospects on both sides.

The Giants, of course, will be in the market for offensive linemen, as many know that general manager Dave Gettleman loves the unit he refers to as “hog mollies.” The Giants could pick an offensive lineman as high as the first round to help solidify a line to block for Eli Manning (assuming he is back) and Saquon Barkley.

The Giants could potentially target offensive linemen in multiple rounds in the upcoming draft and it’s not out of the realm of possibility that they could pick an offensive lineman in both of the first two rounds. The possibility of a better offensive line could actually improve the already great threat of Barkley and that should get Big Blue fans excited.

Wells has been with the Giants for seven years and this past season was his first one as the tight ends coach. He spent the previous five seasons as the offensive line assistant.

The offensive line certainly needs to improve going into 2019 and it’s nice to see the one of the Giants coaches getting a first hand look at the prospects ahead of the draft.
