Wink Martindale quote on Kayvon Thibodeaux should terrify QBs everywhere
The 2022 season was one to remember for NY Giants No. 5 overall pick Kayvon Thibodeaux. While things got off to a bit of a slow start for him, the second half of the campaign from the first-rounder was absolutely brilliant.
Looking ahead to this upcoming season, Thibodeaux is ready to make an even bigger impact for head man Brian Daboll and defensive coordinator Wink Martindale. Martindale is ready to see his stud pass-rusher take a step forward and he has no doubts that a big 2023 is on the way for him.
Martindale not only said that Thibodeaux doesn't have a 'ceiling' but he added that he's going to keep improving with each game moving forward. Yeah, we love hearing that.
NY Giants pass-rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux will be a monster in 2023
""First of all, I love the kid himself," Martindale said via the team website. "I said earlier he has no ceiling, and I believe that because he can do whatever he puts his mind to. We talked about last year after the season was over with, I said, 'I think you need to get stronger in your legs and your core.' That was his focus this year in the offseason, and you're going to see that keep developing. He's going to get better and better every game that he plays here.""- Wink Martindale
Entering his rookie year last offseason, Thibodeaux revealed he had monster expectations for '22, as he wanted to post a sack per contest. He also wanted to break Azeez Ojulari's rookie sacks record for the Giants.
Thibodeaux fell short of that, as he finished last season with 49 total tackles and four sacks. People expected more sacks from him, but you better believe he'll be amped up to try and double that total for his sophomore campaign.
Thibodeaux is a young man who can become one of the best pass-rushers in the NFC. Martindale himself can't wait to see what he'll be able to get done in the future.
