Andrew Thomas has to be break out
The New York Giants have a few players that need to step up and perform this season. One if quarterback Daniel Jones and another is left tackle Andrew Thomas.
Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report has named Thomas as the Giants’ x-factor for the upcoming season. Here’s what he wrote:
Take what we said about Austin Jackson and the Dolphins and replace Tagovailoa with Daniel Jones, Jackson with Andrew Thomas and the Dolphins with the New York Giants.
Thomas, Jones’ left tackle, was even more of a disappointment than Jackson as a rookie No. 4 pick. The powerful Georgia product was dominant in college before surrendering 10 sacks in 2020, according to PFF.
Jones has a lot of fresh support with targets Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, John Ross III and Kyle Rudolph joining the offense and running back Saquon Barkley returning from a torn ACL, but the Giants didn’t address the line much in the offseason. If they’re going to take off in what might be a make-or-break season for their third-year quarterback, Thomas will need to improve substantially as a sophomore on the blind side.
With the way Thomas finished the season and the fact that the Giants have a new offensive line coach in Rob Sale with Pat Flaherty helping out, I think he’ll get the job done this coming season.
Another thing that will help Thomas is now having a veteran like Nate Solder back in the locker room to help guide him and help him grow.
