5. New York Giants: Evan Neal, OT, Alabama
The New York Giants have their man. Again.
It’s been a two-year revolving door as of late as the Giants have not been able to find the right fit since moving on from Tom Coughlin in 2015. The two-time Super Bowl winner was replaced with Ben McAdoo who was there for just 2016 and 2017 — although he didn’t even get to finish 2017 and was replaced by interim Steve Spagnuolo.
Next was Pat Shurmur who also lasted two seasons, going 9-23 in 2018 and 2019. The latest
coach was Joe Judge who had a nearly identical record to Shurmur, going 10-23 in two years — only getting one more win thanks to having a 17th game this past season.
Now, they turn to Brian Daboll who was recently the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. Daboll should probably look for a new quarterback but for some reason, reports suggest he loves Daniel Jones.
If he really is going to go with Jones, he will have to surround him with a ton of talent, and that includes fixing the offensive line. They do that with the addition of Evan Neal from Alabama at No. 5.
The 6-foot-7, 345-pound Neal is a monster who can play on the left side but as long as Andrew Thomas keeps performing well, he could move to the right side. However they line them up, this would give the Giants an elite starting tackle duo — now, they just have to fix the rest of the offense. And defense. If they do, Daboll might make it beyond two years.
