With the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine upon us, let’s take an updated look at what the mock drafts believe the New York Giants should do with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

We currently have 37 mocks drafts in our tracker, and 25 of those (67.5 percent) believe the Giants will try to land their quarterback of the future. Thirteen mocks (35.1 percent) went with UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, seven went with USC’s Sam Darnold and five selected Josh Allen of Wyoming.

Penn State running back Saquon Barkley was selected in eight mocks drafts (22.9 percent).

Interestingly, Darnold will not throw at the Combine.

Dan Pizzuta has been breaking down the best quarterbacks in the 2018 draft class. Here is what he has found:
