2011 NFL Draft: Anthony Castonzo A Nice Fit For Giants

In anticipation of this week's NFL Draft, The New York Post's Paul Schwartz profiles Anthony Castonzo, saying he would be a nice for the Giants.  

"Castonzo said he can definitely see himself fitting in with the Giants, who are known for tough, close-knit offensive lines. He has had contact with Jack Bicknell Jr., the Giants assistant offensive line coach who previously worked with Castonzo at Boston College. At the BC Pro Day, Giants offensive line coach Pat Flaherty ran the drills.

"We got along very well," Castonzo said."

The G-Men-BC connections go deep, starting with head coach Tom Coughlin, and including current Giants guard Chris Snee and defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka. Several members of the coaching staff and front office also have Boston College ties.  

The question is will Castonzo still be on the board when the Giants make their first round selection with the 19th pick of the Draft. While offensive tackle isn't a glaring hole on the Giants roster, a top tackle may be too good to pass up. Whether Castonzo falls to the Giants also seems to depend on whether Florida center/guard Mike Pouncey is still on the board.
