Good morning, New York Giants! Here is a look at your Wednesday morning headlines.

North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb recently visited the Giants, and there is increasing speculation that Chubb could be the choice for the Giants at No. 2 in the 2018 NFL Draft if the Cleveland Browns select Sam Darnold No. 1.

Fit: USC QB Sam Darnold

Pick: Round 1, No. 2 overall

Analysis: I've consistently stated that Darnold is the best QB in this draft and I have long expected him to go No. 1 overall to the Browns. However, there is a lot of buzz in league circles about Cleveland favoring Josh Allen with the top selection in the draft. It's tough to sort out the truth during this time of year, but I think it's possible Darnold could still be on the board when the Giants are on the clock. If he's still available at No. 2, the Giants should sprint to the podium and turn in the card for Darnold. Manning is 37 years old and the Giants can't pass up the top signal-caller in the draft. Darnold is only 20 years old and letting him sit behind Manning for a year or two would be a perfect scenario for both parties.
