Giants GM's explanation for Daniel Jones pick should have fans very anxious

Giants GM's explanation for Daniel Jones pick should have fans very anxious

The 21-year old rose up draft boards during the evaluation process, and former head coach and current ESPN analyst Rex Ryan rated Jones the second-best quarterback in this year's class.

It was looked at as the viable replacement for Eli Manning for when he finally hangs it up or gets sent packing to another franchise, but as it turns out, Jones might not see the field for sometime.

The 6-5, 221-pound Jones was a three-year starter for the Blue Devils and their first draft pick since 2015. "Who knows? I may go out there in my auto and get hit".

Many projected Lawrence as a late first, early second-rounder and this appeared to be another reach.

It's the second straight year the Giants have picked a Georgia player, as they selected linebacker Lorenzo Carter last year in the third round.

That scenario would vastly decrease the novelty - and the value - of this pick. If he plays 60% of the snaps, I'd be surprised. "I left a year early, but I feel like I was ready and prepared to play in the National Football League because I played against a lot of great competition", Taylor said. "He's a quality run player and he's more than just a two-down run player". That's why we took him at 17 and we are thrilled. The end result here could lead to the Giants parting ways with Dalvin Tomlinson, another high Jerry Reese draft pick that Gettleman has chosen to draft over. They've struggled mightily over the past few seasons to build a consistent offensive line and their offensive production has come to a screeching halt as a result.

The New York Giants' new quarterback of the future has no swag whatsoever, according to his college coach.

NY grabbed the 342-pound Lawrence with the second choice in the round and then made a late trade getting Baker, who won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's best defensive back past year.

April 25, 11:39 PM: The Giants moved back into the first round in a trade with the Seahawks to select CB DeAndre Baker at 30th overall.
