Ben Bredeson, an offensive lineman for the Baltimore Ravens, was traded to the New York Giants along with other draft picks on Tuesday.
The Giants have spent the entire summer attempting to figure out their offensive line predicament, so it’s unclear where Bredeson will slot in. A little over a day before acquiring Bredeson, the team traded B.J. Hill to the Cincinnati Bengals for Billy Price.
Bredeson, a former offensive lineman, was moved to guard long before he even played a game for Jim Harbaugh at the collegiate level.
With Andrew Thomas, Nate Solder, and Matt Peart already on the roster as tackles, the Giants probably won’t need Bredeson to play the position, but it never hurts to be versatile.
After a successful college career at Michigan, the Ravens selected Bredeson in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Bredeson was a Second Team All-Big Ten selection in 2017 and again in 2019 after making the switch from tackle to guard.
Not only was Bredeson a First Team All-Big Ten selection and a Second Team All-American in 2019, but he was also named to both teams in 2018. He also attended Hartland Arrowhead High School in Wisconsin in 2015, when he was named a USA TODAY All-American
