Barrel-chested grinder with the toughness and power to play brute ball in the trenches. Lemieux is well-known for his toughness and intelligence. He's an experienced, well-schooled guard. He's athletic enough to perform in a variety of run schemes, but does his best work with combo blocks and double teams. Against NFL interior athletes, he will find it tougher to keep blocks centered and sustained. He should be OK as a run blocker early on, but his issues in pass protection might not be quickly fixed and could push him into the "good backup, eventual starter" category.
Well-proportioned with broad chest
Prototype of a physical, blue-collar guard
Team leader who leads by example
Choppy settle steps ignite powerful charges into contact
Brings his knockback power at impact
As drive blocker, looks to push and sustain well beyond point of attack
Uses upper-body strength to wrestle into favorable positioning
Climbs up and smacks take-on linebackers with good jolt
Works hard to mirror and slide with rushers
Will reset hands and regain positioning against rush counters
Has some recovery ability in pass pro
Arms are somewhat stubby for his size
Pad level could be more consistent
Takes time to run his feet under his hands
Lacks lateral movement qualities to get to reach blocks consistently
Base gets too wide in pass sets
Punch placement can be erratic and off-target
Over-sets against rush happy 3-techniques opening inside counter
Gets gamed out of position by twists

Wonderful draft. Three offensive lineman. One starting LT, one probable starting RT in a year or two, and now a solid backup interior lineman. Just missing a guard but that can be filled by Gates or by bringing back Halapio and letting him compete with Pulley for the job. If center really disappoints this season, then they can get a quality one next year. Same as edge rusher, go with who we have and if they disappoint get a new one next year. I'm very happy.
I can't remember who it was that pointed out that the only lineman under contract for 2021 was Hernandez, but boy the Giants obviously knew that too and they are teeing off on OL just as I dreamed of. THIS is how you rebuild a line. Options, young hungry talent, and a good OL coach. The ex-OL coach was garbage.

He's a guard. Started every game at Oregon as a LG. A lot of people say he could win starting job. How? Hernandez and Zeitler are penciled in as starters. Good for depth though, and he could replace Zeitler next year or the year after.

Lemieux also has been working for the first time at snapping the ball and playing center, albeit in a closed environment without an opposing defender lined up across from him.
“Shane understands too that you got to create value for yourself and you got to be able to contribute to the team and typically if you’re playing guard you’re either playing tackle or center also,” said former Ducks center Jake Hanson, who is training with Lemieux. “He understands that they can be a possibility for him.”

Pick 150: New York Giants — iOL Shane Lemieux, Oregon The 6-foot-4, 316-pound Lemieux is feisty as a run-blocker. In pass protection, though, he’s got a lot to work on. His punch was our biggest concern and continuously got worse over the course of the 2019 season. On top of that, his base gets way too wide, which kills his change of direction. All in all, he posted an abysmal 41.1 pass-blocking grade on true pass sets.

rodney27: You're right about the fumbling problem, tl65taog. I just don't think it can be fixed. He had in preseason, has it at a record pace now, and had the same problem at Duke. If he hasn't fixed it in all that time...I just don't know if he can.

tl65taog: yes the fumbling problem has to be fixed, but you have to be fair about it
