Grading the Giants Draft: Adam Bisnowaty

The Giants Beat grades New York's sixth round selection out of the University of Pittsburgh.

The New York Giants completed a late Draft Day deal with the Tennessee Titans, trading their 6th round pick (207th overall) and their 7th round pick (241st overall) to move up to the 200th spot in the draft to select Pittsburgh Panthers Tackle Adam Bisnowaty. The last Offensive Tackle to be drafted by general manager Jerry Reese came back in the 2015 NFL Draft, when the Giants selected Bobby Hart in the 7th round.

            Bisnowaty is 6’6, weighing in at 304 lb., he started 43 games at Left Tackle for Pittsburgh, but it is believed that he will shift to Right Tackle or Guard at the next level. He does generate a lot of power from his frame, and has shown the ability to eventually be a starter down the line. Dealt with injuries the past three seasons, twice with ankle injuries, once with his back. Bisnowaty has also displayed issues changing direction and redirecting his weight consistently when dealing with inside moves by defensive linemen.

            The Giants snagged themselves a low-celling, middle of the road floor contributor on the offensive line. Bisnowaty has shown the power to contribute at the next level, but with an injury history, and relatively low finesse to his game, he will be fighting for a roster spot.

Draft Grade: D
