Pat Shurmur: “We know what we’re looking for” at quarterback

Giants’ coach talks QB, more at Combine

New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday that the New York Giants “know what we’re looking for. We know when we see it,” when it comes to the quarterback position.

The Giants, of course, have the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and many analysts expect them to use the pick to find an heir apparent to veteran quarterback Eli Manning.

So, what is that the Giants are looking for?

“You want a guy who is a good decision-maker in all facets of his life. You want to walk away and say, ‘This is the guy,’ “ Shurmur said.

Shurmur touched on several other topics during his press conference at the 2018 NFL Combine. Via Twitter, here is some of what Shurmur said.
