Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Wondering what Dwayne Haskins would look like in a New York Giants uniform? Well, the Ohio State quarterback, admitted Giants fan and probable first quarterback who will be selected in the 2019 NFL Draft took to social media on Tuesday to show everyone.

Haskins also used his Instagram to post pictures of him in several other uniforms. He has made it pretty clear, though, that he would love to be a Giant.

Why Dwayne Haskins could be No. 1 overall pick in 2019 NFL draft - Mel Kiper predictions

While we are talking about Haskins, this is what Mel Kiper wrote about him a couple of days ago:

At 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, he can make every throw. He has an effortless and compact release, and that shows when he’s launching balls across the field on out routes, and when he’s hitting receivers in stride on go routes. He’s accurate, shows great anticipation on throws and takes care of the ball. He’s athletic, but he’s not a runner.

Haskins shows poise and never gets rattled. He loves the spotlight and craves pressure -- just look at how he stepped up and torched Michigan, one of college football’s top defenses.

The knock on Haskins is experience -- he has started just 14 games, and that small sample size could scare off some teams. The recent comparison is Mitchell Trubisky, who started 13 games at North Carolina before the Bears took him No. 2 overall in 2017. Teams see that high ceiling with Haskins, just like they did with Trubisky. And Haskins was extremely consistent all season long -- in his “bad” game at Penn State, he led a come-from-behind victory with big throw after big throw in the fourth quarter. Haskins is an elite quarterback prospect.

Jacksonville sits right behind the Giants in the 2019 NFL Draft order, and Tom Coughlin might need a quarterback even more than the Giants do. You can bet that Coughlin will do whatever he can to try and get in front of the Giants in the draft should he decide Haskins is the best option.

2019 NFL free agents who will get paid more than you think

Denver Broncos center Matt Paradis is on this list. I keep being asked about him as a potential Giant. As I have said, I think the Giants are content with Jon Halapio at center. If they decide they want to go in another direction, Paradis has to be on the list of options.
