There has been considerably speculation recently about the quarterback situation of the New York Giants.
In quite a few respects the New York Giants franchise is on borrowed time at QB. Regardless of the reality that Eli Manning’s talent set continues to be in decline, at the very least the staff has not endured a roller coaster at the situation. Manning’s longevity in playing match-immediately after-match simply cannot be discounted as a optimistic attribute at quarterback.
Thankfully, Manning has remained balanced because the turnstile of quarterbacks heading through East Rutherford due to the fact 2004 was practically nothing to publish property about. Outside of Kyle Lauletta, Davis Webb and Ryan Nassib, Big Blue has also suited up Curtis Painter, Rhett Bomar and Josh Johnson.
Honestly, the only QB resembling an NFL starter was David Carr, who was the No. 1 all round decide in 2002 for the Houston Texans.
As the curtain commences to be drawn on the Manning-period, the New York Giants prepare for A.E. (immediately after Eli). The early scuttlebut revolves around Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, but he’s possibility, primarily for the staff to commit the No. 6 all round draft decide.
New York Giants standard manager Dave Gettleman suggested at his calendar year-stop push conference that the staff wanted to construct its defense. There need to be no argument in that philosophy, but why then spend your major decide on offense again?
It is a vicious cycle that has to cease.
Probably, the remedy lies in the reality that New York can piece with each other belongings to entice the Oakland Raiders to trade a person their acquired 1st-spherical choices (No. 24 or No. 27).
Big Blue will probable have 11 draft picks to do the job with at the NFL Draft, and it would not be out of the question for Gettleman to swing a deal or two to purchase a lot more picks.
There are numerous mock drafts out there, and most of them underneath-estimate when quarterbacks will be drafted. Recall, 4 of the major 10 picks in the 2018 NFL Draft were quarterbacks, and five all round choices in the 1st-spherical.
For applications of this dialogue, it would not seem to be that the G-Males would be as high on Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray as other teams. Drafting Murray indicates a revamp of an complete plan to a full unfold offense. So if Haskins and Murray are 1a and 1b of the quarterback class, it would seem that Drew Lock (Missouri) gets the 3rd QB picked.
All a few need to go in the major 10.
That provides us full circle to Daniel Jones of Duke, who at 6-5, 220 lbs. (according to his ACC bio) is just about an Eli Manning clone. We know Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur are enamored of Eli, so becoming his clone can be regarded as a optimistic attribute.
There is a person major exception, and that is Jones’ mobility, which in today’s NFL gets a major as well as. Some of the mocks have Jones heading in the next-spherical, but quarterbacks are often over-valued, not underneath-valued. If the G-Males wait, there is a chance that they drop out on Jones.
Just for context, Drafttek has Jones as the No. 49 prospect, whilst Ryan Jones of CBS Sporting activities dropped Jones out of the major spherical next an uneven Senior Bowl 7 days. Just take this info for what it is – early speculation.
We’ll do a further dive on Jones in the impending weeks, and this is a just a primer about a person probable alternative are at the QB situation, as we head into the NFL Combine that commences on Feb. 26th in Indianapolis.
