What would you think of this as the start of our draft?

Beezer : 3/7/2018 2:07 pm
First two rounds, plus the second pick of the third goes like this:

Round 1: second pick we go ahead and draft the sure-thing nasty-ass OG Quenton Nelson from Notre Dame.

Round 2: We try to trade the #33 pick to Cleveland which gives them the first 2 picks at the top of THAT round. We get back their pick at #35, and with it we draft Sony Michel (if he were to drop just a little bit). If he's not there we then take teammate Nick Chubb at #35.

Round 2 or 3: We also would get Cleveland's pick at #64 if they wanted to move up to #33. Or even perhaps the NEXT pick (also theirs - insane) at #65 (first pick of the third). Maybe Rashaan Evans, ILB from Alabama, is still on the board there and we grab him.

Then ...

Round 3: We would still have the #66 pick at the top of the third, at which point someone would potentially run to the podium to announce our C Billy Price, who might slip down the board a little bit due to the pec injury.

We'd then have the 102nd and 135th picks in the 4th.

So ...

1. Quinton Nelson
2. Sony Michel/Nick Chubb
3. Rashaan Evans
4. Billy Price

Yay or nay?

Possible?

Nelson with a trade down....

At 2....it's a QB or Barkley only
We're not getting a late 2nd round pick

If he picks a guard with the #2 overall pick he should be fired.
Unless they have a conviction about Webb

they cannot take anything but a QB at the 2 spot in this draft
Why do we (and i include myself) think that its

If we took

Nelson at 2 that would be pretty brutal
I've been watching more Nelson video.  
Beezer : 3/7/2018 2:25 pm : link
I am not convinced that he wouldn't be a good pick at 2.

I think if Barkley is available you take him. But ... if Cleveland takes Barkley ...

And I'm not in the QB camp. I'm in the Eli/Webb camp. As if that wasn't clear.

I don't think it's easy. I'm just having fun with it. Speculating. Wishing. Just like we all are. Or most, anyway.

I admit I have no clue what will happen. I just hope we get great picks, whoever they turn out to be.
Unrealistic.

Help me with more realistic ... but same premise.

So we can't get the 35 and 64 for the 33 ... what WOULD we be able to get for the 33? What would Cleveland give? Curious.
I think the more realistic scenario would be  
DonnieD89 : 3/7/2018 2:39 pm : link
if Cleveland takes Barkley, trade down with Cleveland to 4 and acquire their two second round picks. With pick #4, take either Nelson or a quarterback, if you like him, then go after another offensive lineman, a running back, and possibly a linebacker in the early second round.

I have been saying this for a month. Cleveland's 4, 33,35 and their 4th rounder for pick number 2.
So we'd have

4
33
34
35

That's be nuts. Would love to see it.

Evans may not get out of round 1. price will not get past round 2 from what I hear.

He is the 2nd best player in this draft behind Barkley. Articles all over where up to 8 teams have him as the #1 player on their boards. Come on, let's get over the sexy pick. We need a FOCKEN LINE!
No way.....  
Doomster : 3/7/2018 3:15 pm : link
We take a guard at #2, that means we are rolling the Dice with Eli/Webb....and we are screwed for the future...
I think it would be a missed opportunity  
Mike from Ohio : 3/7/2018 3:15 pm : link
to come away from the draft spending the #2 pick on a guard. The second round picks may or may not be good, but the draft would still be just a missed opportunity.

Price will drop some based on this injury and his position.
Still early, but based on what I'd heard yesterday  
JonC : 3/7/2018 3:19 pm : link
they're leaning playmaker at #2 ... Barkley or Chubb.
Price expected back by training camp  
jeff57 : 3/7/2018 3:19 pm : link
Will go in the top 50.

This would be fine by me, and probably fine with the Giants, but why would Cleveland want to move up those two spots that badly? For which player?
Taking a G at #2...  
bw in dc : 3/7/2018 3:38 pm : link
is not sensible.

The only thing dumber is taking a G with the first pick...

Terrible thread, for so many reasons:  
Knee of Theismann : 3/7/2018 3:57 pm : link


1) If we're taking Nelson we are not drafting him #2, that's silly.

2) The browns would not trade us a late 2nd rounder to move up like 1 spot in the 2nd round that's insane.

3) Evans and Price will be long gone by the time you have us taking them.

Terrible thread.
A Guard

People really wanna take a Guard over a top young Qb or a game changing DL/RB

If Cle.'s GM did that HE should be fired
Great draft! Makes the Giants competitive instantly!

Would like Barkley. Do not want Chubb at #2. I'd take Nelson before Chubb. I'd rather Wynn or Hernandez in the 2nd if they can get Barkley.

But don't want Chubb at #2.
No to Chub  
Bluesbreaker : 3/8/2018 3:17 pm : link
too many miles on him knee injury or two ..
I like the Evans pick and Nelson if we trade down is a
no brainer . I'm still on the Barkley train since before
the regular season ended . Trading down makes sense though
