Sources: New York Giants host Tulsa offensive lineman for top-30 visit
The New York Giants hosted versatile Tulsa offensive lineman Tyler Smith on a top-30 pre-draft visit Tuesday, according to sources
The New York Giants continue to do due diligence on offensive line prospects expected to be available through various points in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Tuesday, the Giants hosted Tulsa offensive lineman Tyler Smith on a top-30 pre-draft visit, league sources tell FanSided. Smith, 6-foot-6 and 332 pounds, is viewed by many inside the NFL to be a possible second-round pick.
Given the New York Giants’ dire need for young talent along one of the NFL’s most porous offensive lines, general manager Joe Schoen could be targeting Smith with the No. 36 overall selection.
How Tyler Smith would fit along New York Giants’ offensive line
Last season, Smith produced a 92.3 overall grade from Pro Football Focus, while allowing only two sacks and five hurries in 12 starts.
Smith played a career-high 909 total snaps for Tulsa last season, all of them at left tackle. During his first two seasons, Smith didn’t allow a single quarterback sack.
He would certainly have the potential to compete for a starting role at right tackle or offensive guard for the New York Giants. Especially if Schoen and the Giants forego selecting one of the top offensive tackles with either the No. 5 or No. 7 overall pick, later this month.
