3. OT Evan Neal
For years the biggest flaw of the New York Giants has been their offensive line. Quarterback, Daniel Jones has been sacked 105 times in just three seasons so far. Luckily, the team was blessed with two top 10 picks in the draft and landed OT Neal out of Alabama with the seventh overall selection.
At just 21 years old, he will likely have his blurs. Overall, though, his development is something that fans should keep an eye on, as he is very athletic for his size and position. Throughout his three seasons playing at Alabama, he was one of the top offensive linemen in college football.
During his time at Alabama he showed to be not only a very skilled lineman, but a durable one too. Like Thibodeaux, Neal is also expected to start Week 1. He could be a very useful piece for this Giants offense, and will join Andrew Thomas as another hoss that fans will have high hopes for.
At camp, Neal has done nothing but impress lining up against his rookie teammate Thibodeaux. Although he has been beaten at times, the Giants coaching staff has been pleased with the strides he’s made, along with the work he’s put in. Neal will be on the field for a lot of snaps in his rookie season, and his work at training camp this year will hopefully pay off.
