Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence took to Twitter on Thursday to troll the New York Giants ahead of tonight’s draft. Lawrence advised Big Blue to not draft a quarterback with their No. 2 overall pick tonight, saying he liked playing against Eli Manning.
Day for a lot of youngsters out there! @NFL Draft day! Here’s to the @Giants NOT drafting a QB. #ILikeEli #KeepEli. pic.twitter.com/QlM25Nur9p— DeMarcus Lawrence (@TankLawrence) April 26, 2018
In two games against the Giants last season, Lawrence combined for six total tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Cowboys won the two games by a combined 49-13 score to take the season series. During the two-game set last season, Manning threw for 448 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.
The 2018 NFL Draft starts tonight on eight and can be caught on ESPN. The Giants will have their first selection with the No. 2 overall pick. Quarterback is a possibility, but it seems more and more likely the Giants will select Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. Follow Big Blue View for live coverage of the draft.
