Good morning, New York Giants fans!
The vow? Not to be loyal to players to the point of hurting the organization.
In Saturday’s mailbag, I endorsed the idea of the Giants using the No. 6 pick on a defensive player, then trading No. 17 and other assets to get the ninth overall pick from the Buffalo Bills. Here, that idea pops up again:
Unless Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is pulling off a great ruse, it looks as though he will spend the sixth overall pick on the highest-rated non-quarterback on the board. If Gettleman indeed passes on a passer early on, and the Giants are not that interested in Josh Rosen (if available), then they should jump up to get signal-caller Dwayne Haskins ahead of the Denver Broncos at No. 10. Haskins’ accuracy, poise, quick release and arm strength give him a chance to excel at the next level. Last year, the Cardinals gave up a third and a fifth to jump up from 15 and get Rosen with the 10th overall pick, so maybe the Giants could get away with trading their third and one of their fourths to make the move. If there is competition for the pick, Gettleman might have to give up a 2020 first- or second-round pick instead.
TDN’s Benjamin Solak states flat out that “The Giants are drafting an edge at 6 if Devin White isn’t available.” He predicts that edge guy will be Montez Sweat of Mississippi State. Not really news on either count, just more confirmation of where we think the Giants are headed at No. 6.
Ralph Vacchiano has Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen at the top of this list, if he actually becomes available. That idea has been endorsed here a number of times, especially if the Giants can get Rosen without having to surrender the 17th overall pick in the draft.
