Giants make noise with Whimper at OT

One of the Giants' biggest needs heading into the draft was an offensive tackle, to provide depth and potentially eventually replace left tackle Luke Petitgout. New York is hopeful they found their man in East Carolina's Guy Whimper, a 6-5, 304-pound versatile athlete that was selected 129th overall. Here are the goods on Whimper:

Has good size and the frame to bulk up further...An outstanding athlete with great quickness...Has excellent feet and is very mobile...Still a blank slate who can be molded since he doesn't have many bad habits yet...Has a ton of upside.

Extremely raw and needs a lot of development...Needs to work on his technique and must master the nuances of the position...Does not use his hands well...Gets by solely on his athleticism at this point...Had trouble staying eligible in college.

Former tight end who only started along the offensive line for one season...Very much a project but has all the physical tools you look for...Player who is on the rise.
