According to Bleacher Report NFL insider Jordan Schultz, offensive tackle Giovanni Manu will visit Arizona.

“Things are picking up in a big way for BIG man Giovanni Manu, the former hoops star turned left tackle rising up draft boards,” Schultz said. “I’m told Manu has 30 visits with: [Dallas] Cowboys, [New York] Giants and Jets, [New England] Patriots, Cleveland Browns, [Cincinnati] Bengals, [Indianapolis] Colts, [Detorit] Lions, [Green Bay] Packers, [Kansas City] Chiefs and [Denver] Broncos. Manu also has an upcoming private workout with the Cardinals.”

What makes Manu so special is that he stands as a 6-foot-8, 350-pound lineman from the University of British Columbia.

In four years as a Thunderbird, he has played 38 games in U Sports, the highest level of college athletics in Canada.

Even though there are question marks about how legit he can be at the NFL level, the fact that multiple teams are scouting him shows there is something that is catching their attention.

When scouring over recent mock drafts, Manu is landing in the seventh round. The Cardinals have one seventh-round pick, the 227th selection.

With him showcasing what he can do while visiting various NFL teams, one franchise may take a chance on him and will see how he can translate into the pros.

Arizona has 11 picks in this year’s draft, with six choices being in the first three rounds.

The 2024 NFL Draft starts on April 25 and lasts till the 27th.
