Posting this here because this is a football board after all. Seems like many kids stayed one too many years of late reducing their draft value (like Browning in Washington or perhaps Drew Lock at Mizzou). I think Haskins should play another year in his case however as one full season is just not enough.

So NY Giants, watcha gonna do?

They will go OT or Pass rusher (OLB from Kentucky or DL) at 6...they will have to trade up to get Haskins and it will be too expensive.

I don't know what to think of Haskins....I kinda don't won't the opportunity at the decision. I'd rather take an OT or a great corner and go value QB in round 2 or 3.

Giants have so many needs; OT/G/C/DE/LB/S and C!

They say the draft is loaded with pass rushers. If true maybe get one later rather than first round.

The Giants need an impact player on defensive front 7 and then they need new blood at all the other defensive positions. I don't have a solution for the QB problem. I don't see Haskins as the solution. If there is a can't miss offensive lineman and you go defense after that then take the chance. All their offensive talent is wasted if they can't block em up.

I'd go pass rusher 1st round and another OL in the second round.

Our defense against the pass was pretty horrible this year. No pressure on the QB. We need to go back to bringing pressure on the QB like every successful Giants championship team had.

I do think Gettleman did really well with the first four picks of the last draft. Barkley was a beast and Hernandez and Hill had a really good year for rookies. The Carter kid edge rusher from Georgia had his moments too.

They picked a CB in the supplemental draft which cost them this year's 3rd. The kid was supposed to be really good but injured his shoulder in training camp and missed the whole year. It will be interesting to see how he bounces back in 2019. Could be a really nice find.

The Giants have 2 4th round picks - wonder if they try to package them to move up to the 3rd round if there's someone they really like.

Wasting another draft pick on a 'value' QB is the last thing I want them to do.

Sack up and take a 1st round kid and roll the dice or stick it out with Eli or a FA.

Sick and tired of wasting draft capital on kids that are going to hold clip boards.

I just don’t like any of the so called first round QBs in this draft. Normally I would not say take a shot in round 2 or 3. Maybe after I read some draft stuff I’ll my mind on what’s available this year.

FA QBs are too expensive for what you get. Do we trade or Carr or someone like that?

The Giants made Manning the highest paid player in the league. An overpaid FA would be refreshing.

Well I arrest my case- thank you.

I am so disgusted with Giants, I haven’t given them all my attention for about three years now even they really are my longest running favorite team.

Eli’s contract should be shredded. Tisch and Mara have given him plenty of rope for gutting out those two Super Bowls (as he deserved). Time to accept a dramatically lower 2019 salary to be the transition QB if we go the drafting route or time to cut all together if we finagle a trade for a QB.

He's impressively bad at predicting sports. It fascinates me.
Before the internet/Twitter came along he'd die on a hill saying he never said that.

My favorite, Otahni is signing with the Yankees...when signed with the Angels, he never once brought up Otahni.

You could make a living taking the opposite of his picks.

I need to drive to Rhode Island's casinos, turn on WFAN at 3pm and then run like hell into the casino to bet against him.

He needs to come up with his ideas on an event the night before, write something up. Then when he wakes up in the morning and writes up the exact opposite script for his show.

He would go down as the greatest prognosticator of our lifetime. His ratings would be epic.

jesus christ, how on earth is he wrong, literally, one hundred percent of the time
I love that one of the things they are pushing with the app is access to Ed Coleman’s NHL bets. What are the chances Eddie’s NHL picks are profitable over the long term? 1 in 13 million?
