The debate on who will be the New York Giants starting right tackle in 2013 has been raging since the beginning of the offseason. Why? Because who that player will be is a mystery, even with offseason workouts over and training camp less than a month away. Most Big Blue fans don’t want the incumbent, David Diehl, who started 10 games at right tackle in 2012, to remain on the job. There is no clear choice, however, to replace him–even with first round draft pick Justin Pugh firmly in the mix.
The following slides break down the competition to secure what appears to be the only spot up for grabs on New York’s offensive line. A favorite will be revealed at the end but not before the other candidates are discussed, in order of how serious and real their chances actually are of winning the job.
Before you dive in, keep in mind that "winning the job" is defined as being the starter at right tackle in Week 1 of the regular season. Who has the best chance of playing the most at the position over the course of 2013 is not what is being determined here.
