Andrew Thomas New York Giants · OT The No. 4 overall pick from the 2020 draft began his career looking like a turnstile at a New York City subway station. In a rough rookie season, Thomas gave up 10 sacks and 57 pressures by Pro Football Focus’ count. But he bounced back in 2021, slashing those figures to two sacks and 18 pressures. And I believe he’s poised to take significant strides under this new Giants regime. Brian Daboll is a superb offensive mind who put together a really strong coaching staff. He’ll get the most out of the left tackle. Will Thomas ever live up to the billing as the first tackle off the board in a draft that also included Tristan Wirfs, who just earned first-team All-Pro honors? Will anyone ever not scoff at him going two picks before Justin Herbert? Probably not. But under the watchful eye of Daboll, he’ll continue to round into form as a solid starter on the blind side. I guarantee it.

New York Giants LB Micah McFadden Drafted: No. 146, fifth round Impressive stat to know: 15.5 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, and three pass breakups at Indiana in 2021 McFadden’s film was a joy to study. He moves quickly and effortlessly in any direction, thereby making him a stud in coverage, particularly underneath. He reads and reacts to the offense’s collective movements as fast as any linebacker in the class, and while not blessed with freaky athleticism, McFadden rarely looks slow. The Giants have needed quality linebacker play for some time now, and McFadden has “outplay his draft position” written all over him.
