With the season coming to a conclusion last Sunday, it is time for the NY Giants to look towards the future. The current Giants offensive line is empty for the most part due to multiple expiring contracts such as Will Hernandez, Billy Price, and Nate Solder.

This makes it likely that the NY Giants will look towards the draft to replace their veteran offensive linemen, and with a draft class that is extremely deep with offensive linemen, there is a good chance they select a multitude of offensive linemen with the nine picks they have.

I personally believe the NY Giants will select 2-3 offensive linemen within the first 4 rounds, as it is the best chance they have at fixing their offensive line without making their cap situation any worse.

Here is the ideal offensive line for the NY Giants heading into next season:

NY Giants Left Tackle: Andrew Thomas

This was without a doubt the most obvious player to have at a position. Andrew Thomas solidified himself as arguably a top 10 left tackle in the NFL after having a rough rookie season.

In 13 games played this season, Andrew Thomas only allowed 2 sacks while gaining a PFF grade of 78.9, the highest out of all the NY Giants offensive linemen by far. While he struggled at times in the run game, Andrew Thomas was so dominant in pass protection snaps to the point where it can be overlooked. So far, Andrew Thomas is looking like one of the very few good picks made by former GM Dave Gettleman.

Andrew Thomas has been the best offensive lineman the NY Giants have seen in quite some time, looking like a true cornerstone tackle, if he can keep this level of play up, the NY Giants will have one of the best offensive tackles in the NFL for a long time.
