“Blueprint in place” for Giants-Bills draft night trade?

This doesn’t mean the teams will swap places, just that the Giants could be preparing for the possibility

There has been much chatter about the possibility of the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills executing a draft night trade that would allow the Bills to move up to No. 2 overall and get a quarterback, while the Giants collected a king’s ransom of draft picks to rebuild their roster.

Now, Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst is saying that his connections around the league believe the teams “likely have a blueprint in place” for such a trade should the Giants choose to execute it.

Pauline further states that the Giants appear to want to explore further trade offers.

Honestly, this report shouldn’t surprise anyone. The Giants appear to want USC QB Sam Darnold at No. 2, and if that is the case there is absolutely no reason for them to make a trade before the Cleveland Browns’ selection at No. 1 is announced on draft night. These kinds if trades don’t get negotiated in a matter of a minute or two. The Giants will likely enter draft night knowing exactly what offers they have for the No. 2 pick, and which one they would take if they choose to move down.

There has also been mounting speculation that the Giants like defensive end Bradley Chubb most of all the non-quarterbacks in play for the No. 2 pick.

The Giants have lots of options at No. 2. There is no need for them to move out of the pick until, and unless, they are absolutely certain they can’t get the player they covet the most.
