I've always supported the decision to draft Barkley. He is an absolute stud and he showed that Thursday night.If they were so dead set on Barkley, and so dead set on those QBs not being "the guy", the only way you draft Barkley is if you trade down and pick him somewhere else in the top 8 and acquire further draft capital.
It was an egregious waste of resources.
That being said....the Giants should have signed a free agent QB like Keenum if they were planning on drafting Barkley. This way they have a decent QB at a decent price and they can still get their stud RB. Likely this would result in not giving OBJ his big deal but I'm ok with that. Odell is a cancer in that organization and his talent is not worth the drama and chaos he brings to that locker room. I'd be happy to see him leave.
