The Giants are continuing to do due diligence ahead of the draft later this month, and have reportedly scheduled one of their 30 allotted pre-draft video teleconferences with Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas.

The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Thomas was named a Walter Camp All-America 1st Team and the winner of the SEC’s Jacobs Blocking Trophy, the latter being the first time in 21 years a Georgia athlete won the award. 

Thomas, one of the Bulldogs' four permanent team captains, was also a co-winner of the Vince Dooley Offensive MVP, the award named after Giants assistant coach Derek Dooley's father, and was named All-SEC 1st Team by Coaches and Associated Press.

Thomas was a part of teams that won 11 or more games three straight seasons and three consecutive SEC Eastern Division titles. He started his college career at right tackle as a freshman before moving to left tackle the following year. 

Thomas was named a semifinalist for the 2019 Outland Trophy after winning the Outland Trophy National Player of the Month for October.
