Roster moves since Projection 1.0: None
Most likely: David Baas, Chris Snee, Kevin Boothe, David Diehl, James Brewer, Mitch Petrus, Will Beatty, Brandon Mosley, Sean Locklear
I moved Locklear up because he is a veteran without a prohibitive contract, and even if he doesn't win a starting job (which he probably won't), then he can still be a valuable lineman off the bench.
I didn't move Diehl down, but he should be on notice. After his DUI arrest, he was fined, but won't be suspended. Still, the Giants are historically a no-nonsense team. If Diehl screws up again, he could be in danger of losing his roster spot, especially considering his declining play over the past two seasons.
Everyone else is pretty much a given, but the way the line looks is the real question. Baas (center) and Snee (right guard) are the only players with guaranteed starting jobs, though Diehl and Boothe will likely occupy two of the other starting jobs as long as they don't fall flat on their faces in training camp.
Boothe and Diehl can both play guard and tackle (though Diehl is better suited on the outside), so where exactly everyone lines up is a bit of a question mark right now.
Beatty is a bit of a mystery. He started ten games at left tackle last year before a detached retina put an end to his season. He has never looked great in his three-year NFL career, but the Giants kept putting him out there anyway. He'll need to prove that his eye injury is not a concern and that he can improve in pass protection if he wants to earn his starting job back.
My guess is Diehl returns to his natural left tackle position, Boothe wins the left guard job, Baas will be in the middle, Snee at right guard, and second-year player James Brewer wins the RT position, with Locklear, Petrus, Beatty and fourth-round rookie Mosley coming off the bench. This could be way off though; training camp and preseason games will have a huge impact on this.
On the bubble: Matt McCants
With the large number of offensive linemen on the Giants' current 90-man roster, McCants, this year's sixth-round pick, could be lost among all the veterans. Still, he has shown real talent coming out of UAB, so the Giants will look to stash him on the practice squad if he doesn't make the team.
Not likely: Selvish Capers, Chris White, Jim Cordle, Joel Reinders, Stephen Goodin
White, Reinders and Goodin are probably all camp bodies. Capers is a candidate to return to the practice squad. Cordle spent a lot of time on the active roster last year, but only as an emergency center, and he didn't get much playing time. However, he is no longer eligible for the practice squad, and could push for a bench spot with a good camp.
