As far as the New York Giants are concerned the final Sunday of 2019, and a long regular season, is over. The Giants lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, giving them a 4-12 record. The Giants’ reward will be to select No. 4 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.
For a while the Dolphins’ win held the door open for the Giants’ return to the second overall pick and the possibility of selecting Ohio State defensive end Chase Young. But those hopes quickly evaporated with the Green Bay Packers’ last-minute victory over Detroit. That effectively locked the Giants into picking third or fourth overall, and Washington’s loss set the draft order for the top 5.
We won’t get into speculation as to who the Giants could draft — we have almost five months of that, not to mention sorting out the coaching and front office situations. While Ohio State EDGE Chase Young and Georgia OT Andrew Thomas could both be drafted in the top three, there should still be good players on the board who can help the Giants.
There could also be a potential trade market if multiple teams decide to move on from veteran quarterbacks.
