Giants new-look offensive line on display in OTA's
by Ruben Palacios | CBS Sports Staff

The Giants have completely remodeled their offensive line unit for the start of organized team activities.

Compared to last year's o-line, only two players are back but even those guys have switched positions and shifted along the line. Justin Pugh has gone from right tackle to left guard and Weston Richburg shifted from left guard to center.

Will Beatty, who was a mainstay at left tackle last season, will miss five to six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Beatty's injury has paved the way for rookie Ereck Flowers to step in at the left tackle position.

Quaterback Eli Manning is still adjusting to all the moving pieces in front of him.

"Obviously, having a new center can be an adjustment," Manning said. "But (Weston) Richburg was here last year and I got snaps with him last year, so that hasn't been a big deal. Anytime you have a rookie at left tackle, it can be an adjustment."

Geoff Schwartz and John Jerry are splitting time at right guard, while Marshall Newhouse has been taking the snaps at right tackle.

Flowers' college position coach thinks he can fill in for injured Beatty
by Ruben Palacios | CBS Sports Staff

Things are moving really fast for Giants offensive lineman Ereck Flowers. The eighth overall pick in the draft, because of an injury to Will Beatty, might have inherited a huge workload this season, per

Art Kehoe, Flowers' offensive line coach at the University of Miami, thinks Flowers will be up to the task of protecting quarterback Eli Manning.

"I'm sure he raised his level up a notch or two, but I think he plays every week, I think he plays hard in practice," Kehoe said. "He's an unproven commodity at the next level, and he's a high draft pick, [the Giants] drafted him to be a fixer, so I'm sure he's going in there to do what he did in Miami — scrap his ass off every day in practice, and if you're supposed to be a badass the next weekend [against] your opponent, he's gonna be there and he's gonna bring everything he's got. That's what he does. He wants to know that there's a dude, and he has to take care of him, and he'll be up to the challenge.

Giants' 2013 first-round pick, Justin Pugh is also a top candidate to fill in for the injured Beatty.

Will Beatty unsure when he'll be back
by Larry Hartstein |

Giants left tackle Will Beatty, coming off a massive leg and knee injury, is running but only in a straight line. He might not be heavily involved in next month's OTAs and his rehab could stretch into training camp, reports The Star-Ledger

"Who knows the future? I know today I’m doing good," Beatty told the paper. "I know today I am past expectations of the doctor and I want to make sure tomorrow I’m the same way. I want to make sure I keep improving so when it is time for opening day, I’m there. When it is time to put on pads for the first time, I can put on pads. Those are my goals, to hit those, I guess, mile markers."
