left tackle

The Giants are moving David Diehl from left tackle back to left guard, according to Mike Garafolo of NJ.com. Diehl, who has seen his production at tackle fall off, should still be a very solid guard. ?William Beatty will get a chance to stick at left tackle.

This move is not a surprising, considering Diehl's play last year and the release of Rich Seubert. Still, some people will be very concerned about playing the unproven youngster Beatty at the most important position on the line. Those are legitimate concerns, but I believe it's time to let Beatty sink or swim, unless the Giants are going to bring in another tackle.

Worst case scenario: Beatty fails and the Giants move Diehl back to tackle, where he is capable but below average. Best case scenario: Diehl is a beast as an interior lineman, and Beatty finally fulfills his potential.
