Anthony Castonzo

Most offensive tackles average a 26 on the Wonderlic Intelligence test. Anthony Castonzo scored an impressive 41. Can he play QB?

First pick should be an Offensive Lineman. Offensive Tackle seems to be a draft priority for some Giants fans. Well, maybe not Peter, but March 17th has come and gone and we need some draft talk.

Nate Solder may not be at the 19th spot. The Patriots have been known to swipe fan favorites from the Giants in several drafts. Now I realize, I am not thinking outside the box on Castonzo.

Castonzo and Tyron Smith are on ever other mock draft on the web. Nonetheless, I think Castonzo has some other traits that might make him high on the Giants board:

  • Fills a need.
  • Smart-41 on The Wonderlic Intelligence test.
  • Good Combine- I was impressed with his and Solder's combine.
  • Fits the Coughlin's hard nose, disciplined, Boston College type player- ie., Mathias Kiwanuka and Chris Snee.

Now that would have described our perfect MLB. Nonetheless, despite not seeing a Linebacker that wowed me for the 19th pick. Looking at potential First Round Draft Picks, my draft board order for Linemen would be:
  1. Colorado OT - Nate Solder
  2. Boston College OT - Anthony Castonzo
  3. Florida OL - Mike Pouncey- Thought he would have been a nice pick last year.

Interesting fact... the Giants have met with Mike Pouncey and scheduled a meeting with Anthony Castonzo...

What am I nuts? We're not drafting these guys! That is Giants draft 101. Smokescreen
a la Reese. They must be taking another pass rushing Defensive End!

Back to the Drawing Board...

Where's Peter's Pick?
