The Giants drafted Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas with the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Here are what NFL experts are saying about the pick.
Andrew Thomas is a very sensible pick for the Giants at 4th overall. He's the one tackle that was hard to find negatives on. To the point where I was asking people why he wasn't the first one going.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 24, 2020
Turns out, he was.
The Giants took OT Andrew Thomas with the No. 4 overall pick. A pro-ready tackle who played mostly on the left side at Georgia. Someone to protect Daniel Jones’ blindside for years to come.— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) April 24, 2020
Lorenzo Carter told me a few months ago that when Andrew Thomas showed up on campus at UGA as a freshman and a starter, he and the rest of the edge rushers tried to put him in his place in practice. They quickly learned that Thomas was the real deal.— Tom Rock (@TomRock_Newsday) April 24, 2020
The Giants take Andrew Thomas a versatile tackle that can come in right now and will move people in the running game and protect Danny dimes in the passing game— Maurice Jones-Drew (@MJD) April 24, 2020
Andrew Thomas was a tackle who offensive coaches really like. He has played left or right tackle. He's got a rare ability to reset his feet in lieu of resetting his hands when recovery against the rush. He's gritty and tough. Average run blocker. Professional tough guy.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 24, 2020
Was hoping Andrew Thomas would slide down to Brady's Bucs. I slightly liked him the best of the four top tackles. Three-year starter at Georgia. High quality player/person. Rock. Gettleman made a sound decision here.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) April 24, 2020
Giants picked their franchise left tackle in Andrew Thomas. They had their choice of linemen in a praised class. Strong commitment to protect investments Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) April 24, 2020
Recently had a lunch w a college football player that went to high school w Andrew Thomas. Raved. Loved his character. Rock solid LT for a decade.— Colin Cowherd (@ColinCowherd) April 24, 2020
The #Giants need an OT #AndrewThomas is their guy. Massive frame with the proper blend of length & thickness. Eye-opening raw athletic ability that can make a difference in the open field. Gets after LBers at the second level and maintains the ability to adjust to late movement. pic.twitter.com/mT4DaqNRoX— Dan Shonka (@Ourlads_Shonka) April 24, 2020
