OT - NYG
Week 7 Outlook
First-round draft choice from Georgia OT Andrew Thomas has signed his four-year, $32.345 fully guaranteed rookie contract with a fifth-year option with the New York Giants.
Thomas will get a $21.1M signing bonus as part of his contract. He’ll be tasked with protecting Daniel Jones and run-blocking for one of the league’s best RBs, Saquon Barkley.
The New York Giants have selected offensive lineman Andrew Thomas with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
There was some pre-draft speculation that the Giants could trade out of this spot, but GM Dave Gettleman has famously never traded down in his career. Tackle was the obvious need for New York but with such little clarity on who the top lineman was in this year’s class it remained a mystery who the Giants would select. They settled on Thomas, who will immediately start at right tackle and could eventually replace Nate Solder on Daniel Jones’ blind side. The Giants’ offense seems to be on the rise and could be a sneaky source of fantasy value in 2020.
