3. OL Andrew Thomas

This was a close call for No. 3 and No. 2, but make no mistake about it, left tackle Andrew Thomas is the straw that stirs the drink up front. As we previously mentioned, the offensive line play for the Giants was pretty much a nightmare last season. However, Thomas was an absolute animal and blossomed into a true superstar.

Remember not long ago when, just like Neal, people were calling Thomas a first-round bust? Plenty of folks thought that Thomas would turn out to be another wasted first-round pick by the NY front office. Instead, the massive LT has continued to improve following his tough rookie season. Thomas' strong play in '22 is still talked about.

Sooner than later, Thomas is going to be in line to land a major contract extension from the Giants. Schoen needs to give him a blank check and just walk away, as he's worth every penny NY is about to give him. Thomas earned Second-Team All-Pro honors last season. Now, we're expecting more incredible play from him in '23 and beyond.
