10 NFL Draft prospects NY Giants should be scouting during the bye week
OT Evan Neal, Alabama
Evan Neal is a 6-foot-7 and 351 pound monster of an offensive tackle from Alabama.
The NY Giants should prioritize drafting Neal if they want to move on from Nate Solder.
On almost every board, Neal ranked first among offensive tackles and it’s obvious as to why.
Neal is a dominant pass blocker, who can provide a desperately needed presence from the right tackle position. While Evan Neal currently plays left tackle, he has experience in the right tackle spot as that is where he primarily played in his sophomore year. So if the NY Giants were to select him, they would most likely move him to the right tackle spot. He also has experience playing guard in 2019.
You’d think that with Neal’s huge size that he wouldn’t have the speed required to dominate opposing edge rushers, right? Wrong. Neal is very fast for his extreme size and it shows as he is also an elite run blocker. Using his rare combination of size and athleticism to dominate defenders in the run game.
Evan Neal has yet to surrender a single sack on the season thus far and is looking to be a top 7 pick. If the NY Giants move into that range by the time of the draft they should consider taking him. A combination of Neal and Andrew Thomas is going to improve this team drastically.
