Mort: Giants looking to retake the line of scrimmage in 2014

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen recently met with Giants head coach Tom Coughlin and he believes the Giants drafting former Boston College running back Andre Williams is a sign that they “want to retake the line of scrimmage.”

Williams is a downhill, no-nonsense power back in the style of Michael Turner. His weakness is the passing game, where Williams simply can’t catch. Mort said his “takeaway” after the Coughlin visit was, “Who says we have to throw to him?” If Williams can pass block, he can stay on the field in passing situations even if the Giants aren’t feeding him targets.
