In Rotoworld's rankings of the NFL's top offensive lines, the New York Giants' revamped unit took the fourth spot.

Last year, the Giants' offensive line ranked fourth and second in terms of run blocking rankings, according to Pro Football Focus and Football Outsiders, respectively. Pro Football Focus ranked the unit 18th in pass blocking, but Football Outsiders had the Giants pegged as the third-best in the league.

The Giants return five members of last year's offensive line, including left tackle Will Beatty, who signed a long-term deal to continue protecting Eli Manning's blindside this off-season.

This off-season, the Giants paid Will Beatty a lot of dough; fitting, as they viewed the 28-year-old lineman as the current and future protector of Eli Manning's blindside.

With the 19th pick in the NFL Draft, the Giants continued their efforts of developing a stealth offensive line by drafting former Syracuse lineman Justin Pugh.

With prospects deliberating about where the first-rounder would fit in, it is apparent the G-Men consider Pugh the future at right tackle.

Addressing the media at the NFL Scouting Combine this afternoon, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin spoke to a number of questions surrounding the team this off-season.

One of the biggest surprises at the beginning of the off-season was the release of veteran running back Ahmad Bradshaw.

It was assumed by many that former first-rounder David Wilson, who impressed in Bradshaw's absence, would inherit the role of lead back. But Coughlin expects both Andre Brown and Da'Rel Scott -- a former Terp -- to compete for the job.
