USA Today

Giants first-round picks Kayvon Thibodeaux and Evan Neal have agreed to terms and will sign with the team following Saturday’s rookie minicamp practice, according to NFL Media. 

Saturday marked the second day of the team’s rookie minicamp. Thibodeaux and Neal were two of 85 players who were on the Giants’ roster for rookie minicamp. Neal, the seventh overall pick in this year’s draft, lined up at right tackle during the first day of rookie minicamp. Thibodeaux, rocking his new No. 5 jersey, participated in his first practice since last December, when he was wrapping up his career at Oregon. 

“I put (my jersey) on and I feel like I’m not there yet,” Thibodeaux said of his first NFL practice, via “There’s still some hoops and hurdles I gotta go through to be part of the team … It still hasn’t hit me.”

Both players are expected to make immediate contributions to the Giants. Neal, a mountain of a man at 6-foot-7 and 350 pounds, was incredibly versatile at Alabama, where he started at left guard and at both tackle positions. Neal made 15 starts at left tackle last season while helping Alabama’s offense finish in the top-10 nationally in total yards, passing yards, third down conversion percentage and red zone efficiency.
