They are wrong every year. Reports jets will take Rosen if Darnold still there. Reports Giants will take Darnold if Allen goes 1. Reports bill and Giants are working on a trade. Reports patriots had a private workout with Jackson bla bla bla
Every year analysts write this junk and every year they are wrong. The problem is us. We continue to believe it. Lol lol
Day 1: Saquon Barkley is one of the most divisive and interesting picks in the first round. He is undoubtedly a huge talent, but the Giants passed up the chance to select a future franchise quarterback, or trade back for a significant haul of picks in order to select him. Barkley is dynamic in the passing game, with legitimate matchup problems for any defense in the NFL but running between the tackles is not necessarily a strength as he has a tendency to try and turn every carry into a home run hit rather than taking the necessary single when the time calls for it. Barkley had the No. 2 breakaway percentage in this draft class, with 19 runs of 15 or more yards in 2017. This will be a franchise-defining pick for the Giants for years to come and will be one of the most interesting players to watch perform at the next level.
Day 2: With Barkley now on board, the Giants went hard at the top of the second round to give Barkley the blocking to maximize his opportunities. Will Hernandez earned the best single-season grade we have seen from a college guard in 2016 (95.2) and had the second-best pass blocking efficiency in the draft class. With two third-round picks, the Giants also added to their defense with Lorenzo Carter on the edge and B.J. Hill in the middle. Both players flashed talent, but were inconsistent in college, so their impact will be determined by how much they can iron out the lows of their play. Carter had 36 total pressures, and eight of them came against the best O-line in the country in Notre Dame.
Day 3: Kyle Lauletta from Richmond has a chance to validate the selection of Saquon Barkley at No. 2 overall, and the team’s decision to pass up a new franchise quarterback that high. Lauletta showed an average arm, but impressive accuracy, completing 76.9 percent of his passes at the intermediate depth. He posted the top grade among the Senior Bowl quarterbacks in the 1-on-1 drills and was the game’s MVP.
As for Lauletta, if the reports are true, the Pats might have groomed him to be a potential successor to Brady.
4 out of the last 5 drafts the Giants have drafted everybody they wanted and stole talent from others despite others passing on the players. (3-13)
Doc and others understand it
For those living in a cave
- 4 out of the last 5 drafts the Giants have claimed they got the player they wanted. (yet they don't win) - Apparently the Pats wanted Lauletta yet, like other years the Giants apparently stole the coveted talent (although these other teams keep passing on the talent these sources claim they covet) - Of course, despite getting everybody they want and stealing the talent from others they only manage a record of 3-13
Yet to read the Giants didn't get who they wanted so all appears good except the roster and record.

uther99: The Oline is just too bad to compete. If you max protect, how many WRs go out, 2? That's 2 WRs against 7 defenders, good luck.

GordonG: Homer, I hope you get good news this week. Like Troy, I also beat cancer. I was fortunate that it was caught very early. So early that it could have easily been diagnosed as benign.
