Rookie camp preview: Brandon Mosley
By Ohm Youngmisuk
With rookie camp set to begin this weekend, we're taking a look at Scouts Inc.'s breakdown of each New York Giants' draft pick leading up to Friday's camp. I'll give you my own first-impression analysis of the guys when I see them up close this weekend.
Here's Scouts Inc.'s breakdown of fourth-round pick Brandon Mosley. Tomorrow we look at the Giants' sixth-round pick Matt McCants.
FOURTH ROUND: BRANDON MOSLEY, RT, AUBURN
What he brings: “Mosley could do a better job of sinking his hips and generating power, but he has above-average quickness and lateral mobility for his size. He's more than capable of pushing for early playing time at right tackle.” –- Scouts Inc.
How he fits: “This is an offensive line that could use help all across the board and especially at the tackle position. Age is really a factor in this unit. Mosley is a developmental guy who likely fits best at ROT and he needs to get a little more physical, but at the very least he should be a swing guy and provide some depth to this group.” -–Scouts Inc.
Ohm’s take: The Giants believe Mosley is old school, tough-minded and versatile like David Diehl. Diehl could start at right tackle this season with Kevin Boothe at left guard and Will Beatty at left tackle. So Mosley could sit and learn this season and provide depth and perhaps compete for a starting spot next season. At best, perhaps Mosley can compete at right tackle this season.
Tell us what you think of Mosley and how the offensive line is looking for this upcoming season below.
