The NFL draft is next Thursday and the Giants could go in a number of different directions. They desperately need to upgrade their offensive line, but they haven't drafted a linebacker in the first round since 1984 when they selected Carl Banks. If Zach Cunningham from Vanderbilt is still on the board, don't be surprised if that's their pick

Offensive line is also a big need, more so than linebacker, but this draft class doesn't have the type of 1st round talent that could produce a vital building block in front of Eli Manning. Like it or not, the Giants could be looking at another season with Ereck Flowers as their left tackle and blind side protector to Manning. We saw last season how ineffective that was.
