With the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the New York Giants have selected Andrew Thomas, an offensive tackle out of the University of Georgia.
A bit of a surprise, Thomas was selected ahead of both Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs and Alabama’s Jedrick Wills, two guys who were more highly expected to go here. Thomas excels as a run blocker, though he does struggle a tiny bit against fast, bendy edge rushers. He’s not the most flexible tackle available, the biggest tackle, or the strongest tackle, but Thomas has the highest floor of any offensive tackle with the lowest bust potential.

Thomas will probably replace Cameron Fleming at right tackle, possibly switching over to the blind side if they want to move Nate Solder to the right side. The Giants now line up an offensive line of Solder, Thomas, Will Hernandez, Kevin Zeitler, and Spencer Pulley, a very stout offensive line to protect Jones and running back Saquon Barkley.
