What is your draft day "stunner" for the Giants?

AcidTest : 4/9/2018 12:24 pm
Pick anything you want. Trade up! Trade down! Trade OBJ! Trade Eli!

You don't have to support what you describe.

Here's mine:

The Browns take Darnold #1. We then learn that the rumors are true . . . little Bill loves Rosen. The Giants trade the #2 pick to New England for #23, #31, #43, #63, and first round picks in 2019 and 2020.

I would oppose this, but can't discount a blockbuster trade if the Browns take Darnold.
a QB other than Darnold

stay put and take Mayfield.

That would absolutely shock me more than any trade down.

trading Eli would stun me
Trading back with Bills, drafting Darnold/Rosen/Allen etc  
nyjuggernaut2 : 4/9/2018 12:37 pm : link
wouldn't really be a surprise to me considering it's been talked about. There are two surprises that come to mind though...

1. Drafting Baker Mayfield at 2.

2. Drafting Mincah Fitzpatrick at 2.

Those two scenarios would surprise (and frustrate me).
With the value of the #2 pick and teams willing to give up the farm...

Staying put and drafting Nelson or Chubb would be a real stunner.

A trade with Buffalo down to 12......  
Reb8thVA : 4/9/2018 12:40 pm : link
that would stun me because I think its too far to drop
Stun me if they draft Nelson...  
KingBlue : 4/9/2018 12:40 pm : link
at #2.
I agree on a trade  
arniefez : 4/9/2018 12:42 pm : link
Gettleman never did it when he was in Carolina. I don't remember GY or Ernie ever doing it it. Reese never did it. I would be stunned.

2. But I’d live with whatever we do. Also would hate a trade down past 5 or so.
A trade with Buffalo down to 12.  
DonnieD89 : 4/9/2018 12:45 pm : link
It doesn’t make sense passing on blue chip prospects and depend on higher risk lower draft picks and an unknown first round position for next year.
Trade down  
Jay in Toronto : 4/9/2018 12:45 pm : link
And then take Orlando Brown with our first pick (sorry. Andy in Halifax).
And join Trainmaster

in ER for a broken hand.
I wouldn’t be pissed  
NikkiMac : 4/9/2018 1:03 pm : link
But Baker Mayfield would be a stunner......

Patriots moving into the top ten I expect a draft day surprise from them.....
we need the #4 pick  
SHO'NUFF : 4/9/2018 1:12 pm : link
to have our choice of Barkley or Chubb.

#5 will get us the leftover out of those 2.
Giants don't like anyone at #2  
Mike from Ohio : 4/9/2018 1:12 pm : link
and don't like the trade down options, so they just skip the pick and let the Jets go second.
My "stunner"....  
Emlen'sGremlins : 4/9/2018 1:43 pm : link
....will be if we draft anyone other than Super Man (Barkley).
No stunners  
jvm52106 : 4/9/2018 1:43 pm : link
really. I would not be happy if we traded up to #1. I would not be happy if we trade down a few spots and take Allen..

I would be ok with a Trade with Buffalo as long as we get two 1's, two 2's and a 3rd and a 2nd next year.

If somehow NE is the trade partner then it better inckude both 1's, 2's and Gronkowski.

Giants trade OBJ to Cleveland  
EB222 : 4/9/2018 1:54 pm : link
even up for #4 pick. Select Saquon Barkley with pick.
With the #2 pick the Giants select..

Jonas Seawright Jr.
for any of you ...  
Csonka : 4/9/2018 2:37 pm : link
Any chance the Giants take a player at #2 other than the one you want ... and you patiently wait to see how it works out?

I mean, crazy thought but it is POSSIBLE that each of us is wrong in our evaluations and rankings despite our thorough youtube research. And maybe more than one player would work out for us.
They pick Minkah Fitzpatrick  
Russ in Queens, NYC : 4/9/2018 3:31 pm : link
Not that I'd complain.
V.I.G. : 4/9/2018 3:34 pm : link
Good: Trade up to 1, take darnold
Bad: Take Barkley at 2
Russ +1  
idiotsavant : 4/9/2018 3:34 pm : link
Might make sense.

Fitz. DT will be fine. But it's about Collins doing other stuff in the field.
Russ in Queens, NYC : 4/9/2018 3:37 pm : link
My thinking precisely.
I could see defense 1 (s) and 2 (DT or LB)  
idiotsavant : 4/9/2018 3:44 pm : link
Then offense the rest of the draft.

Feed the betcher.

Role players for O.

This is the answer. As wasteful as taking Barkley would be - and that would be very poor draft management, especially this year with such a bumper crop of RBs - taking a G at the #2 spot would be a colossal mistake.

Mayfield at #2.  
FStubbs : 4/9/2018 4:53 pm : link
I wouldn't be surprised with any of the other QBs, Barkley, Chubb, or Nelson.

Actually, Fitzpatrick would be a stunner too.

I could throw in crazy stuff like "Lamar Jackson at #2" but we all know that's not happening.

I only see Mayfield at #2 if Jints Central trades the pick.

Mayfield is sort of the last thing Jints Central needs, especially if they keep OBJ. Why? The drama potential is enormous. Big personalities, big city, big media...big distraction. Now, if they want to own the back pages, then it may be an interesting business move. If they want to keep the best environment for football success...? Don not draft Mayfield.

That is my shocker pick as well but would not be mad either ... still would rather have Barkley @ 2.
