Have You Changed Your Mind About Which Player You Want @ 2?

Jim in Tampa : 4/10/2018 9:59 am
In the last two months or so BBI has had hundreds of threads about which player the Giants should draft.

Whether they want Barkley, one of the QBs, Nelson or Chubb, many posters (myself included) have stated their player preference over and over again on numerous threads, trying to convince other posters of the merits of selecting a particular player.

Itís exciting that the Giants have the 2nd overall pick and I enjoy reading the BBI draft threads, but it got me thinkingÖ

Has anyone actually changed their mind about which player the Giants should select at 2 as a result of reading BBI draft threads?

What say you?

Rosen.. no, Mayfield  
Andy in Halifax : 4/10/2018 11:59 am : link
no, Darnold. Wait, Rosen. Definitely Rosen. Scratch that, Mayfield. Nope, gotta be Darnold.

I'm not trying to call you out, or suggest I don't like Rosen, but just asking because you have such a strong preference.

If all the QBs were on the board when the Giants picked, and they go with Darnold, Allen or Mayfield, do you really think they did a worse job evaluating their options that you did?

No... if the medical check up is clear  
Rick in Dallas : 4/10/2018 12:10 pm : link
Rosen is the best QB in this draft.
If not cleared medically, I would choose Barkley.
Sort of.....  
Keith : 4/10/2018 12:12 pm : link
First off, its important for me to once again point out that I am in no way qualified to speak about any individual player. I don't watch enough college football for each player and I am not privvy to enough information to really justify an opinion.

Now that thats settled.....I have always been firmly on the QB bandwagon for the sole reason that I think Eli is clearly on the back 9 and just about every other team thinks these QB's are worthy of a first round pick. Therefore, I have always thought that it's QB or bust.

I have eased up a little bit on that. I am strongly anti-RB at #2, that hasn't changed, but I understand that Barkley is a fantastic prospect that can help OBJ and the passing game. If there was a way for us to drop back and accumulate some prime picks and then take Barkley, I'd be ok with it. I still really hope we love one of the QB's though.

Yep, I'm not so enamored with any one player that I sleep with his picture under my pillow and will go ape-shit if he is not selected by the team. There are a number of blue chippers that I would be happy with, and I'd also be happy with the right trade back. For those that have decided that it has to be this guy or that guy, be prepared to be disappointed.
Nope - still want a QB at #2  
ZogZerg : 4/10/2018 12:17 pm : link
Rosen or Darnold. Prefer Rosen!
i've changed several times  
RAIN : 4/10/2018 12:36 pm : link
as I'm sure the Giants front office has. You test out scenario's and think about fits.

The constant has been my belief in Darnold. He's younger by years then Wentz and Eli coming out, and he played on a not so great team.

Lot's of good options if Darnold isn't available. I've vacillated between Rosen and Barkley at #2. I've thought about Josh Allen at #4/5 on a trade down. Lot's of things make sense, but I'm leaning towards QB.

If gone, then I take Rosen with his caveats. If his injury history and interviews check out. If they don't, I sell the pick and trade down with an eye on Barkley and Allen. IF both of those guys are gone with #4 or #5 then I go Chubb.

So many options, all good. I want to maximize value and take the best player. All said and done I will be happy with Darnold, Rosen, or Barkley... and I've flip flopped for sure on the order.
Got talked out of  
NikkiMac : 4/10/2018 12:41 pm : link
Mayfield on here because of the height we might all come to regret that

I always have liked Josh Rosen but moved him up in front of Mayfield

Iím also sold on Barkley because of bbi.......
I've flip flopped on what QB I want first  
crackerjack465 : 4/10/2018 12:41 pm : link
but was always in the QB camp...

Darnold
Rosen
Allen
...
Nelson
Chubb
...
Minkah Fitzpatrick
Barkley

(yeah, I don't want a RB early).
Nope.  
SHO'NUFF : 4/10/2018 12:44 pm : link
I want Barkley.
First I Wanted Darnold  
pa_giant_fan : 4/10/2018 12:50 pm : link
But now in the Barkley, Chubb or trade down group.
The two  
NYBEN1963 : 4/10/2018 1:00 pm : link
best football players in the draft are Barkley and Nelson...either one works for me. Who knows when this team will this team have a chance to draft one of the top 2 players in a draft. You can't pass up talent like Barkley or Nelson out of fear.
I still wish Denver or The Colts were hungry for QBs.  
manh george : 4/10/2018 1:03 pm : link
I believe that 3 qbs will go in the top 5, and that at 5 or 6, the Giants could be confident of getting Barkely, Chubb or
Nelson, plus more picks and a better salary cap situation. Any trade down now would have to be in two steps, and those rarely work. So, I'm back to Darnold or Rosen, assuming the Giants' management isn't comfortable with Webb, who they intend to work out before the draft.
I originally wanted Rosen  
Oskie : 4/10/2018 1:16 pm : link
The injury history scared me off. Then I was hell bent on Barkley, but not sure I can pull trigger on RB in this spot...now something inside me is telling that Mayfield is going to be the best of the group. Don't care about his antics or attitude, he's a child, he'll mature mentally, and I really like his competitive fire. btw, I don't feel the same about OBJ, he's not going to change, too much "Dig me" to go along with his unbelievable talent.
I'm more convinced than ever  
Don in DC : 4/10/2018 1:22 pm : link
that I don't know WTF I'm talking about, and neither do most of you.

That said, I would like to see Gettleman trade back, stockpile picks, and then take Nelson or Mayfield if they are still on the board.

But that's just me spouting an armchair opinion. All I know for sure if that more picks would give us more chances to get lucky.
I vacillate a lot  
santacruzom : 4/10/2018 1:26 pm : link
to the point where no matter who we pick, I'll probably be both happy and disappointed: "Yay, we got _______! But I kinda wish we got ______."

Darnold, Rosen, Nelson, Barkley, Chubb, even Fitzpatrick or Vea... I'd have that simultaneous excited-yet-disappointed feeling with any of them.
I still want Chubb or Barkley.  
prdave73 : 4/10/2018 1:30 pm : link
I'm not fond of the QB's except maybe Mayfield. I like Nelson but you can still get your self a nice guard in the 2nd rd. Remember defense is what won the Eagles the Super bowl, same with the Giants Super Bowls against the Pats.
For those who want Barkley at 2  
LI NHB : 4/10/2018 1:54 pm : link
what exactly do you say to those that claim it's a bad value pick given that it's not as valuable of a position and this is an extremely deep RB class?

I know the whole, "but he's a generational talent""I can picture him in a a gold jacket" shtick. But like, what is the counter to the statement above?

Denver not wanting a QB could be smoke. I don't think Keenum is a sure bet outside of Shurmer's O.
Nope...  
Vinny from Danbury : 4/10/2018 2:26 pm : link
Still want Barkley. But I won't be upset with any pick. I simply prefer to take a player who can help now, instead of 2-3 years down the road at 2. But if it's a QB, or Nelson, or Chubb, etc..., so be it.

The RB class is deep, but when you get a chance to take a player with enough talent to build a team around... and the floor on that player is pretty high, you mitigate risk and instantly get a team identity.

The "enough talent to build a team around".. is indicative of a player your fairly certain will be a talent on par with Adrian Peterson. I don't know any other back in the draft that can make that claim. Lot's of second round guys that can start, but not guys you build your team around.
My vote would be for Darnold  
Go Terps : 4/10/2018 2:31 pm : link
Initially I wanted Lamar Jackson, then I found out his mom was his agent. Fuck that. Despite that, his stock seems to be rising...Greg Cosell has a good piece about him here and Mike Lombardi said last week that his stock is rising particularly with the Patriots getting the first rounder for Cooks.

If Jackson grows up and gets away from his mother then I still think he's the best quarterback in this class. But making big decisions based on "ifs" is stupid, so my pick would be Darnold.

What are you doing if Darnold goes 1? Would you trade down to 5-6 range?

Probably. Then at that point I'd possibly try to trade down again and target Vea, Connor Williams, or possibly even Lamar Jackson if the front office feels comfortable with him (which I doubt).

I'm not sure there are as many blue chip prospects in this draft as are advertised...or if there are any at all.

If I were the Giants, and he checks out to be a 230 lb Jerry Rice, take him, he's a match up nightmare. I go he had butterfingers like Brandon Marshall, we definitely don't take him at 2.
no more than twice a day  
torrey : 4/10/2018 3:04 pm : link
ok, maybe 3 times
Yes  
Rong5611 : 4/10/2018 3:13 pm : link
First, I was all in for Mayfield. Then Rosen. Now, I could live with Darnold as well.

Any of the 3 would work for me. We have a 37 year old QB, and we have a rare chance to pick 2nd.

Take the QB, I've been pretty consistent on that.
Iíve changed my mind every day

The naritive on his is ridiculous.

His PARENTS are rich so he doesnt need to play and will lack desire. If the Giants worried about stupid shit like this we never would have drafted Eli...his parents were rich too..
The Manningís made their name in Football. You canít compare the two. This feels like all those people that scoffed at a scout that knocked Apple because he couldnít cook without understanding what the underlying message was, that he wasnít mature and relied upon mommy for everything. The Rosen thing all ties back into ďHow long is he going to want to play?Ē You want to spend the #2 pick on a guy that might be out of the NFL in 5-6 years which maybe 2 of which would be spent on the bench behind Eli? Everyone here would absolutely LOSE IT.

BleedBlue : 4/10/2018 3:37 pm : link
since before the combine its been darnold or barkley for me.

okay with rosen(concerned about injuries)

okay with nelson in a trade back
I was dead set against taking a RB  
bradshaw44 : 4/10/2018 3:49 pm : link
But after reading BBI and looking into him more, Barkley has grown on me. But Iím open to quite a few players actually after really only wanting Darnold.
just want a hit on the pick that will last long term  
micky : 4/10/2018 4:51 pm : link
for team.

if they decide QB, I hope the right one and would lean to this thinking long term and not playing the "journey qb" to fill the need.

Barkley, Chubb, Nelson, Darnold or whomever needs to be a hit pick. won't know about them after given some time.

It's been Darnold for me all along...  
Torrag : 4/10/2018 4:53 pm : link
...and thatcontinues. I will say that Mayfield has closed the gap and is my clear #2 choice now.
I wouldn't say my mind has been changed since the end of the season...  
T-Bone : 4/10/2018 5:03 pm : link
but I'm more open to drafting a QB (especially if it's Rosen) than I was earlier in the process. At first it was Barkley or bust for me... but I've grown to be more than ok with the idea of picking up Rosen at #2 if we don't go with Barkley for whatever reason.

So for me it's...

Barkley - the guy I REALLY want badly

Rosen - if we don't go Barkley, the only other player I'd be happy with

Darnold - this would be a 'shrug the shoulders pick'. I'm not a big fan of the guy based on the little bit I've seen of him (a game or two and Youtube highlights)

Mayfield - this pick would make me slightly more angrier than the Darnold pick because I just don't like this guy as a person and I think it'd be a little too high

Nelson - see Mayfield above but without the 'don't like him as a person' aspect

Allen - now I'd start really getting disappointed BUT, as I've said before, IF the Giants want to stick with Eli for another year or two, this guy might make the most sense... still don't want him though

Chubb - really not interested in him at #2 and would be fairly disappointed if we took him there... but would understand the need and reasoning behind it

Rarely do I get 'throw the remote' pissed off because I just trust that the team knows better than I do. I really don't see how they can mess this pick up... even if they took my least favorite player (Chubb).
Nope.

shockeyisthebest8056 : 4/10/2018 5:58 pm : link
but I never thought he would actually get past Cleveland. Where I've changed my opinion is I was 100% against drafting a running back a few months ago and now I will be happy with any one of Darnold, Barkley, or Rosen.
Somewhat - Barkley to Chubb

wgenesis123 : 4/10/2018 7:44 pm : link
to thinking about Eli and Tiki Barber and thought Barkley might be able to make Eli a better QB for the time he has left. I still would prefer a trade down and the multiple options it could create. I don't want a QB mainly because I never want a QB. I leave that to the Giants to figure out and if they really like a QB and take him, I will be happy with that.

Bill L : 4/12/2018 7:16 am : link
I want Barkley because he's the best talent and that makes him the most impactful toward winning, and, thus, the best value.

If the Browns take Barkley at #1, then I am okay with Darnold as the next best value.

All of that calculus include both talent and position.
Sort of...  
trueblueinpw : 4/12/2018 7:55 am : link
Pretty much liked Darnold from the go but didnít (and donít) think heís available after the 1. Figured Iíd go Barks, then thought about Chubby and now Iím thinking JR.

Still waiting for Gettleman to call and ask for my final input on the matter.
