With Luke Petitgout jettisoned for seemingly no reason, the Giants' current plan is to have David Diehl line up at LT with Guy Whimper, picked in the fourth round last year, in reserve. But Oregon State's Adam Koets (pronounced ‘coats') might have something to say about that.
Koets, 6-5, 298, started 37 consecutive games at left tackle for the Beavers. As a senior Koets received All-Pac 10 Conference second-team honors. He totaled 38 pancake blocks, with 10 resulting in Oregon State touchdowns. He only surrendered four sacks during his last two seasons.
According to Ourlads, Koets excels at pulling because he runs well and can locate a target in space. He has good body control and recovery quickness in pass protection. Koets graded eighth out of 43 offensive linemen that worked out in Indy.
Finally a Left Tackle
