Andrew Thomas has been selected 4th overall by the New York Giants in the 2020 NFL Draft, which kicked off Thursday evening.

A native of Lithonia, Ga., Andrew Thomas (6-5, 320) signed with the Georgia Bulldogs on National Signing Day on February 1, 2017. The big offensive tackle played high school football at Pace Academy.

Shortly after the pick, head coach Kirby Smart reacted on Twitter.

Thomas started all 15 games as a freshman for the Bulldogs and was named to the Freshman All-America Teams by ESPN, the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), and USA Today.

Following his sophomore season in Athens, Andrew Thomas was named to the 2018 SI.com All-America First Team, 2018 Associated Press & Walter Camp All-America Second Team, 2018 Coaches All-SEC First Team, and 2018 Associated Press All-SEC Second Team.

Andrew Thomas continued to rack up the awards after starting 13 games in 2019. He was named to the Walter Camp All-America 1st Team and also won the SEC’s Jacobs Blocking Trophy. Thomas did not suit up for the Allstate Sugar Bowl contest against Baylor, choosing instead to prepare for the draft.

In his three seasons in Athens with the Georgia Bulldogs, Todd Gurley rushed 510 times for 3,285 yards (6.4 YPC) and 36 touchdowns. He also caught 65 passes for 615 yards and six TD’s.

The NFL has not released the 2020 schedule yet due to the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, but plans to release it on or before Saturday, May 9. However, the New York Giants opponents for the 2020 season have been set and can be viewed at the link below:
