31. Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin will both remain in New York heading into the 2015 season. In order to maximize the potential success of that situation, the Giants select the player most capable of making an impact right away who happens to play a position that keeps the team’s most valuable asset upright. By season’s end, the Giants were among the most dangerous offensive teams in the league in 2014. One has to figure the organization feels they are capable of contending in 2015. With a 34-year-old quarterback and an enviable crop of receivers already in tow, addressing the offensive line seems to be a logical bet for the Giants. Scherff has the flexibility to play either guard or tackle at the next level. This gives him extra value, considering he can play along the interior as a rookie before moving outside as a tackle when the organization feels he is ready. The Cowboys benefited in a big way last offseason by selecting an offensive lineman, who happened to be the best player available, with their first round selection. It made Tony Romo’s life easier and provided a much clearer picture of the Cowboys’ future plans. Scherff might be better than Martin and the Giants would be well served to scoop him up with the 9th pick.. Offensive Tackle. Iowa. Brandon Scherff. 9. player
