How on earth could they trade Odell Beckham Jr.? How could they take a running back over a quarterback at the top of last year’s draft? Does this team even have any sort of plan? How could they possibly if they are rebuilding with a 38-year-old quarterback that is clearly a declining player?Well folks, first off, this isn’t a Giants fluff piece. But New York has accomplished something pretty impressive 鈥?and extremely important. This front office, namely GM Dave Gettleman, has built a great nest. A nest? Yes, a very comfortable and well-protected nest for a young quarterback to land, learn to fly and grow. Wouldn’t such a nest be better off with one of the NFL’s truly elite wide receivers? Possibly. But it also might be better off without such a huge personality involved in the young quarterback’s maturation process. It also conceivably could be better off without that huge accompanying contract or the need to force-feed one singular pass catcher. Who is to say for sure if having Beckham, his persona and his contract in the fold would be better for the Giants’ next franchise quarterback or if it would be better to have him out of the building during this maturation process in exchange for valuable draft and salary cap equity. But what can’t be argued is that the ability to distribute the ball to Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, the recently extended Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate is a very friendly situation for a highly-touted quarterback just entering the league. All four of those weapons are very quarterback-friendly stylistically, often with quick-hitting routes. Also, the ability to turn around and put the football in Barkley’s belly is also something all young (and old) NFL signal callers will be envious of. It takes a village to raise a quarterback White Rhett Ellison Jerseys , folks. There are two other key aspects of this village: Manning and a quickly improving offensive line. Unlike Beckham, there is no questioning that being around Manning in close quarters is a tremendous influence on a developing quarterback. Manning can hold down the fort until the youngster is ready, but more importantly, watching Manning operate as a true professional with a great head for the position will be an amazing asset. As for the offensive line, ask Josh Rosen how important it is to at least have competency up front. Now, the Giants line is far from perfect. Quarterback aside, this should be a very heavy defensive draft for New York, but they also could add a premium young offensive lineman as well. The Giants might have overpaid for Nate Solder, but with Solder, Will Hernandez and now Kevin Zeitler, this line now has three foundational players. That is something many teams out there can’t say right now in an offensive linemen starved league and New York now has one of the best guard pairings in the NFL.Of all the teams in the league that might be poised to draft their next franchise quarterback, the Giants might be the best landing spot for future success. That is a gigantic thing that this organization has going for it right now. This isn’t to speculate who that quarterback might be. Maybe it will be Rosen or more likely, New York will draft a quarterback early on. This is the year to make that addition rather than wait another year. The nest has been built and built very well.

Every year we are treated to see incredible athletes doing athletic things, which is always entertaining, and 2019 was no different. Wait, I take that back, 2019 was different: We saw a LOT of incredible athletes doing a lot of incredibly athletic things. From the start, we saw Iowa tight ends Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson dominating drills, along with the surprise performance of LSU’s Foster Moreau. Centers Garrett Bradbury and Erik McCoy blazed sub-5.00 40-yard dashes and put on shows in the events. On the second day we first saw Ohio State’s Paris Cambell confirm his status as one of the most athletic receivers in the class, and UMass receiver Andy Isabella showed off the speed that made him a high school track star and continued to raise his profile. And then D.K. Metcalf happened White Calvin Munson Jerseys , doing his thing on the field and letting everyone know that he is a bigger, faster, stronger, and more explosive athlete than Julio Jones. (Note: Yes, he had slow 3-cone and short shuttle drills. No, I don’t care. His work in field drills showed good breaks in his routes with little wasted motion.)Which brought us to the absolute highlight of the weekend, the front 7 workout. Quinnen Williams confirmed his status as a potential first overall selection by matching a great workout to a dominant season. Nick Bosa did the same, and showed that he is even quicker than his older brother. But then there were the DL surprises, like Trysten Hill of UCF and Khalen Saunders of Western Illinois who put everyone on notice about the depth of this position group. Following the interior defenders came, predictably, the EDGE defenders and more incredible performances. Ben Banogu of TCU went from an interesting prospect to a player who will be one of the most athletic EDGE players in the NFL as soon as he is drafted. Charleston EDGE/DL John Cominsky put on a workout on par with that of Aaron Donald’s in 2014. Brian Burns confirmed his status as one of the top EDGE defenders in the draft with an exceptional workout of his own. And then Mississippi State EDGE Montez Sweat did to Jadeveon Clowney what Metcalf did to Jones, and potentially catapulted himself into being a favorite for the Giants at sixth overall. And perhaps the biggest surprise of the weekend was the off-ball linebackers. We all expected Devin White and Devin Bush to excel, but nobody saw performances like those put on by Washington’s Ben Burr-Kirven or Minnesota’s Blake Cashman coming.There were Calvin Munson Jerseys 2019 , of course, some disappointments along the way, but overall the combine was very exciting, and in our look back, Dan and I cover all of these players, performances, and more.
