If NY Giants offensive tackle Andrew Thomas was looking for some extra motivation heading into the 2022 campaign, Pro Football Focus just provided it for him. Matter of fact, Giants nation as a whole is stunned by what they’ve done. This week, PFF decided to drop its top 10 rankings for offensive tackles in the NFL.
To no surprise, Trent Williams and David Bakhtiari were at the top of the list at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively. However, there’s one glaring takeaway from their rankings: Thomas is nowhere to be seen. If you ask us, this is a joke and a quick look at Twitter shows that several people agree. Folks are beyond mad about Thomas being left out.
NY Giants OT Andrew Thomas is ready to dominate in 2022
You’re telling us that Taylor Moton of the Carolina Panthers is a better tackle than Thomas? Not on planet earth. It’s hard to argue with some of the other players listed, but it feels criminal that Thomas isn’t in the top 10. He’s been nothing short of fantastic for the Giants, powering an offensive line that all of a sudden looks like it’s ready to turn the switch. NY fans want justice here.
In his two seasons with the Giants, Thomas has started 28 games and has been one of the few bright spots for the squad. Looking ahead to 2022, so many of the NY supporters can’t wait to see what he and first-round pick Evan Neal will be able to do together. Neal and Thomas have wasted no time in developing a close bond, which is awesome to see.
After going 4-13 last season, everyone on the Giants roster wants to make sure another lowly campaign isn’t recorded. In order for more wins to be posted, the offensive line will need to step its game up in protecting signal-caller Daniel Jones and opening up massive holes for running back Saquon Barkley.
Thomas will be ready to answer that call. The team over at PFF may want to watch him closely this fall. Then maybe the next time they drop rankings like this, they won’t disrespect Thomas in such head-turning fashion.
