The New York Giants selected Kentucky offensive tackle George Asafo-Adjei on Saturday in Round 7 of the 2019 NFL Draft, 232nd overall. This is the first of two seventh-round picks for the Giants.

Asafo-Adjei is a 6-foot-5, 305-pounder who played in 48 games at Kentucky with 23 starts. He was a team captain in 2018, and started 12 games at right tackle.

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst says Afafo-Adjei is an “underrated offensive tackle” who is “a legitimate prospect for the next level. Asafo-Adjei possesses the size, fundamentals and feel for blocking that could help him make an active roster as an inexpensive utility lineman.”
