Giants roster outlook: offensive tackles | #TogetherBlue


We're doing a series to provide an outlook on the Giants' roster until training camp arrives. Episode 5, offensive tackles


Oh, boy, Giants fans have to buckle up, because they're going to feel good about this for a long-time. With two young superstars in the position, it feels like their complaints finally have been heard.


Andrew Thomas absolutely disappointed in his rookie season with a horrendous performance, but while the Giants struggled again in 2021, he quietly put up a good season with a lot of improvements from 2020. He's now a very solid tackle with better fundamentals to play the position and it's not that easy to get a sack against him anymore.


But the major improvement has come from the other side of the line, as top-10 pick Evan Neal will instantly slot in as right tackle and fix the position. Neal was a fantastic prospect coming out of Alabama, with great athleticism, excellent run block technique and good pass blocking skills as well. Enough are the days with Daniel Jones getting battered through the edge.


Matt Peart, the previous right tackle, at least is a decent backup option, but a full season with him is problematic, as we all saw. However, with Thomas and Neal together, this position will be a Giants' strength for a long-time.


Offensive tackle grade: 4/5. There are two good players with immense potential to become superstars. This can be 5/5 in a few years, a treat after so many years of hurt for Giants quarterbacks.
