I don't have time to research this but wasn't there discussion last year about how Gettlemen/The Giants never drafted many O-lineman that high?

 

I just felt like throwing that out there for everybody that likes to speculate.

It wasn't Gettleman's decision, he wasn't the GM of the Giants.

I don't understand how this keeps getting missed.

During his 12 yrs there, the Giants only drafted like 4 Olineman total during the first three rounds of all the drafts

While this is true, he was a valued member of the staff and would have had some input on these things. Also, he likely holds some of the same values/tendencies of his mentors and former bosses, That also cannot be ignored, product of our environment.

Not a good example, because the Giants Oline hasn't been that good.  Both years they won the Super Bowl they stumbled into the playoffs. Plus Eli is generally one of the most sacked quarterbacks each year.  While Cam is obviously quite a bit more mobile, this doesn't mean we should ignore the line.

Also, this.

 

Both of those Giants SB wins are two of the more fluky SB wins in recent history.  Eli got years taken off of his career from the beating he took last season behind that god awful OL.  If Cam didn't have his mobility, we'd be saying the same about him.  Hell, even with his mobility he's taking way too many hits.

Perhaps it overlooked because he spent the year on IR, but in Gettlemans first draft, he took Kugbilla in the second round. So I don't think you can forecast anything from what NY did while he was director of player personnel under Acorsi.

4th round does not equal 2nd round.

I think you're getting Silatolu (2012 draft) confused with Kugbillia (Last year's draft.) 2012 was Hurney
