The Giants have found their edge rusher.
New York selected Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Long considered a blue-chip prospect out of Oregon, Thibodeaux was believed to be a top candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in this draft a year ago. However, he fell to the Giants – who badly need an infusion of talent on both sides of the ball.
The Giants still have another first-round pick at No. 7.
