The New York Giants are hoping for great things from Kayvon Thibodeaux.
That’s why the Giants used their fifth overall selection to draft him.
They saw something in the 2021 Unanimous All-American who had 49 total tackles, 12 tackles for losses, and seven sacks in his final year with the Oregon Ducks.
General manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll hope that he will be the cornerstone of their defense for years to come.
After all, his 4.58-second 40-yard dash time means that he can cover much ground to reach opposing quarterbacks.
But while he could be a terror for the play-caller on the other side, he will become a blessing to more people through his foundation.

ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter tweeted, “Giants first-round pick Kayvon Thibodeaux announced today that his @TheJreamFound will be providing opportunities for underprivileged children to attend Core Prep Academy Football, a program that partners with private middle schools to provide a student athlete focused curriculum.”
Building A Lasting Legacy
Now that he has reached the top, it’s time for him to be of service to other promising football talent.
It’s an achievement that is more impactful than any individual awards or Super Bowl titles.
A lot of young players do not have the privilege of developing their skills because of a weak support system.
Therefore, Thibodeaux’s foundation can bridge that gap to find those athletes that deserve assistance.
With a student-athlete focused curriculum, they also get quality education while having ample time to train.
This initiative should inspire other NFL players to follow suit.
In the end, the game benefits if the best players from around the world are on the field.
