New York Giants select Pitt offensive tackle Adam Bisnowaty in sixth round of NFL Draft

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt offensive tackle became the fourth Panther to hear his name called at the NFL Draft as he was selected in the sixth round by the New York Giants. The Giants actually traded up to take him.

Bisnowaty being selected isn't a surprise. As I wrote a few days ago, his stock sort of slipped a bit as he was once considered to be a higher-round or mid-round guy.

On the field, Bisnowaty is one of the more experienced guys you'll find. He was a legit four-year starter for Pitt and made the All-ACC first team (by the coaches...he was second team by the media in both years). He's certainly a solid tackle with good size and will have a chance to play in the next level. Along with fellow NFL draftee Dorian Johnson, he was part of a line that created a lot of running room for James Conner's monster 2014 ACC Player of the Year season, Qadree Ollison's ACC Offensive Rookie of the Year season in 2015, and Conner's big 2016 season.

In the sixth round, it's a solid get for New York.
