Giants have checkered history drafting offensive tackles over past decade

The New York Giants haven’t had the most effective tackle play in recent memory. 2020 fourth overall selection Andrew Thomas showed promise down the stretch of his rookie season, but he struggled in the first half of the year; according to Pro Football Focus, Thomas surrendered 10 sacks, 6 on true pass sets, and 57 total pressures which was second-most to the Jacksonville Jaguars Jawaan Taylor’s 58.

Struggles for the Giants at left tackle precede Thomas. Nate Solder was signed to a record-setting tackle contract in 2018, a four-year, $62 million contract with $34.
