Gallery, a mountain of a man that could address any club's left tackle problems for the next decade, could be taken as high as the second overall pick. Big Blue, unhappy with the play of Luke Petitgout at LT last season, is looking to upgrade at that spot; a move that would allow Petitgout to move back to right tackle.
However, many clubs are interested in Gallery, and the Raiders, who own the second pick, have said they're willing to deal, meaning that one of the teams choosing after the Giants could very well move up and steal their guy.
By now surely you've heard that Tom Coughlin's first ever pick in Jacksonville was LT Tony Boselli, who had a Pro Bowl career cut short by injuries. Coughlin, who stresses the importance of winning both lines of scrimmage, is believed to be strongly in favor of drafting Gallery.
He's an outstanding pass protector that blocks with a wide base and terrific lean. He also has a nasty attitude on the field, but is a model citizen off it. In short, he'd be the perfect addition to the club on the field and in the locker room. He's not yet a dominant run-blocker, but is expected to develop quickly in that department. Wherever Gallery lands, he's expected to immediately jump into the starting lineup and offer instant dividends.
