Chris has been profiling draft potential clients and just about every time he has touched on a operating again substantially of the response can be summed up this way: “A operating again? Waste of time! The Giants have Saquon!”
On the most latest version of the ‘Valentine’s Views’ podcast we resolved the subject of irrespective of whether or not the Giants could possibly benefit from applying a draft decide on to dietary supplement the operating again situation. We also talked to a couple of these mid- to late-spherical draft hopefuls, Ryquell Armstead of Temple and Qadree Ollison of Pitt. Armstead is The Draft Network’s 17th-rated again in the 2019 draft class, and Ollison is No. 24.
So, would the Giants be insane to draft a operating again?
I don’t think they would be. They presently have nine picks in the draft, with seven of these coming in Rounds 4-7. As soon as compensatory picks are declared, they could have 11 picks — with nine of these in the remaining 4 rounds.
I see no rationale why they could not, or should not, use a Working day 3 collection on a operating again. If they come across a spot where a operating again is the best-graded participant on their board I would have no dilemma with adding one.
We all can see how superior Barkley is. We all know he will get the huge majority of the operating again touches, as he ought to. He cannot, nonetheless, perform each down. When he is not in the activity, or if the unthinkable happens and he gets damage, the Giants ought to want the finest probable depth guiding the 2018 Offensive Rookie of the Yr.
Wayne Gallman is a good participant. He is an ample backup who can the two run and acquire decently. He is not, nonetheless, a dynamic perform maker. His longest run in 162 NFL carries is 24 yards. The longest of his 48 receptions went for 21 yards. At 6-foot, 210 lbs, Gallman does not suit the description of a highly effective shorter-yardage runner, possibly.
If the Giants can come across a participant with a middle- or late-spherical decide on who can include possibly electricity or breakaway capacity as a runner or receiver to include depth guiding Barkley, no one ought to have a dilemma with that. Introducing superior gamers and creating depth at any situation is hardly ever erroneous, because injuries come about and you hardly ever definitely know what your wants will be during the period.
Armstead is a 5-foot-11, 215-pound again who gained 1,098 yards on 210 carries for Temple in 2018 (5.2 yards per have). The Millville, N.J. indigenous also pulled a Nikita Whitlock, doubling as a element-time linebacker and registering a sack in 2018. Single-digit uniform numbers at Temple are reserved for staff leaders, and Armstead wore No. 7.
Ollison had 1,000-garden seasons for Pitt as a freshman and as a senior. The only other Pitt backs to have many 1,000-garden seasons are James Connor, Tony Dorsett, LeSean McCoy, Dion Lewis and Curvin Richards. The 6-2, 230-pound Ollison has performed some fullback, H-Back and is an experienced distinctive groups participant.
