The New York Giants want to make sure Daniel Jones works out at quarterback.
It took Evan Neal at No. 7 overall on Thursday in the NFL Draft. Neal played offensive tackle in 28 games for the Crimson Tide, allowing 3.5 sacks in two seasons. The 6-foot-7, 335-pounder assisted Mac Jones (2020) and Bryce Young (2021) in becoming 4,000+ yard passers and Heisman Trophy finalists. Neal helped Young set single-season school records for passing yards (4,872), touchdown passes (47), and total touchdowns (50) in 2021. He became the first Alabama quarterback to win the Heisman.
Neal provides versatility as a guard and tackle. He can run block and pass protect, which makes him ideal for the Giants.
Neal paced the Tide to two Southeastern Conference titles (2020, 2021) and a College Football Playoff National Championship in the 2020 season. He earned Consensus All-American, first-team All-SEC, and permanent team captain honors.
It is going to be fun to watch Neal dominate for the Giants.
