As the sluggish march to the 2019 NFL Draft continues, mock drafts have a tendency to blur collectively. We get exhausted of producing about them, and at some stage you get exhausted of looking at about them.
Hence, we test not to emphasize each individual mock draft that will come along. Particularly when they all say the similar issue. After in a while, though, a credible mock draft will come along with an solely various, still plausible, circumstance for the New York Giants.
These is the circumstance with Trevor Sikkema’s new mock draft for the have to-read internet site, The Draft Community.
Why? Sikkema doesn’t have the Giants selecting Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins at No. 6. He doesn’t have them buying and selling up to do that, both. He has the Giants buying and selling down in Spherical 1. For an offensive tackle and more draft picks.
Sikkema has the Giants dropping down to No. 13 and selecting Oklahoma offensive tackle Cody Ford. In the offer, the Giants also get Miami’s 3rd-spherical choose (No. 79) and a 2nd-spherical choose in 2020.
In this article is what Sikkema wrote about the transfer:
I wager the Giants would be happy selecting Cody Ford at No. 6 in general, so if they can trade again, get an more 3rd and fourth spherical choose out of it (possibly even more) and get Ford, they need to surely be pleased.
Ford can participate in both of those ideal tackle or inside at guard in the NFL. I like his tape at tackle, so I consider that’s the place you give him a shot very first reverse Nate Solder.
P.S. I know some people today will be yelling that I don’t even mention them focusing on a quarterback. I consider quarterback is their range just one have to have, but until eventually I listen to they are fascinated in pulling the bring about in the very first spherical, mocking them Murray or Haskins like they need to would seem pointless.
Valentine’s Look at
There is a ton to speak about below. Initially, let’s paint the total image.
Sikkema has the quarterback-needy Washington Redskins buying and selling to No. 3 (New York Jets) and using Kyler Murray. To do it, Washington presents up a 2nd-spherical choose this calendar year and a 2020 very first-spherical choose.
I consider two issues: I consider that’s the ideal selling price stage, and I consider the Redskins are a group that could go all-in on Murray. So, I locate this to be practical.
I consider that if the Jaguars don’t land Nick Foles by means of absolutely free agency or trade, I can surely see them accomplishing what they have to do in buy to land Haskins.
The other piece of the circumstance below is that the Dolphins utilised the sixth in general choose they acquired from the Giants to select Missouri quarterback Drew Lock. I consider the Dolphins are in the quarterback current market, so once again there is a likelihood they would want Lock.
Now, for the Giants.
Sikkema would make an certainly essential stage, and just one that aligns with the issues yours really has also read out there in the draft universe. It likely is “Dwayne Haskins or bust” if the Giants want a quarterback at No. 6. Haskins could even be their major quarterback concentrate on, but I have read practically nothing that suggests the Giants are in love with him to the stage of remaining willing to house loan the draft capital it would consider to transfer up and assure they could get him.
I proceed to consider the Giants are more probable to sit at No. 6, see what takes place, and consider the very best player on their board. Or, follow Sikkema’s suggestion below, slide into the center of the spherical and obtain some added center-spherical draft capital.
As for Ford, I individually would have no complaints about landing a plug-and-participate in ideal tackle in this location.
