Left Tackle – Andrew Thomas

Prior to his opt-out, there was discussion surrounding what position Nate Solder would be playing this season. The New York Giants selected Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas with the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. It was expected that Thomas will play left tackle for the Giants in his career, but Nate Solder’s presence on the roster made Thomas’s position in 2020 uncertain.

Now, with Nate Solder opted out for 2020, it is highly likely that Andrew Thomas will be the starting left tackle this season. Andrew Thomas played 1,075 pass-block snaps in his collegiate career. On those snaps, Thomas allowed only 37 total pressures. He also has not allowed more than 2 pressures in a game since 2017 (his freshman season at right tackle). The question now is who will start at right tackle?
