By Ohm Youngmisuk
Eric Herman racked up a whopping 335 pancake blocks over his career at Ohio University.
PLAYER:Eric Herman SCHOOL: Ohio
The Giants continued to build in the trenches by adding Herman in the seventh round. The Giants clearly are making a concerted effort to get bigger and stronger on the front lines after drafting their fourth lineman (offense and defense) of the draft.
THE 411: Call him Mr. Pancake. Herman is credited with an amazing total of 335.5 pancakes in his career at Ohio. He started 13 games at right tackle and helped Ohio average 203.3 yards rushing in 2012. He started at right guard in 2011 and 2010.
Giants' Greatest Draft Thefts

PROJECTED IMPACT: If Herman does not make the roster out of camp, he likely will end up on the practice squad. But in 2014, the Giants may not have Boothe, Diehl and Cordle so Herman could find his way into the mix. The Giants, though, have hit with some of their seventh-round picks in the past. Last year, they drafted DT Markus Kuhn and of course, they struck it big with Ahmad Bradshaw in 2007.
