POLL: Which QB would you want the Giants to draft at #2?

Josh in the City : 4/11/2018 4:36 pm
Let's get a consensus here on who you would want to be the Giants future franchise QB. Use the link below to respond to the poll and discuss here. Even those of you who don't want a QB at #2, if you had to choose from the current group (without trading down or drafting Barkley/Chubb), who would it be?

Personally I think Josh Rosen is the best QB in the draft but the injuries are very concerning to me. If you can't play a full season in college it's going to be even more difficult in the NFL. Also, after a decade of Eli (which has been awesome), I'd be interested in a guy with a bit more mobility and guys who can extend plays with their legs. That's why if I had my choice I'd lean towards Sam Darnold.

What say you BBI?

voted for Darnold, but I really prefer "none of the above."
Not voting  
Phil in Joisey : 4/11/2018 4:47 pm : link
I really haven't a clue. Have not watched enough of the college quarterbacks to give an educated opinion. Even if I did watch it wouldn't be an educated opinion.
I'm going to trust Dave Gettleman to make the right
decision for us whether it's a q.b. or not.
It wont allow a vote for Rosen  
twostepgiants : 4/11/2018 4:49 pm : link
It did allow Darnold

Who else voted for LamJax...

How Come There's No  
Aloha Alan : 4/11/2018 4:58 pm : link
None to select or "other"?
Carl in CT : 4/11/2018 5:01 pm : link
I just donít see a top notch QB. Others I see more upside. Why settle for mediocre QB at #2. If we draft him I hope Iím wrong.
None of them  
Anakim : 4/11/2018 5:05 pm : link
None of the QBs are worth a top-5 pick.

Said it back in December and I'm saying it now. My top QB is Baker Mayfield and there's no way in hell I can justify spending the second overall pick on a 6' QB coming out of a spread offense.

He's my #2 QB, but I wouldn't take him at #2
I'd be happiest with Rosen or Mayfield.  
Ira : 4/11/2018 5:10 pm : link
They each have their issues, but they're both very accurate and, to me, that's far and away the most important quality in a quarterback.
I agree with none  
Chip : 4/11/2018 5:13 pm : link
I would take Allen biggest arm most mobility if I had to choose one qb.

B/c the point is who would you take if you knew they were taking a QB. And they're definitely not taking one at #2 outside of those 5 so no pt adding other to the poll.
What is this, poll 3 on this subject?  
David B. : 4/11/2018 5:15 pm : link
This is the worst lead-up to any draft in memory in the information age.
AcesUp : 4/11/2018 5:17 pm : link
Although I know it's a longshot at best.
AnnapolisMike : 4/11/2018 5:20 pm : link

They've met with him 5 times. I think they have serious interest...but i also don't feel he will be the pick.
Rosen will be the best of the bunch  
Chris L. : 4/11/2018 7:02 pm : link
and he will be very good. Passing on him would be a BIG mistake.
None! Drafting a qb would be a terrible idea when there are so  
SterlingArcher : 4/11/2018 7:19 pm : link
many good players who could come in a and contribute immediately! Drafting a guy at #2, paying him a lot of money and have him sit on the bench for maybe 2 years, not good business.

I still think Rosen  
Since1965 : 4/11/2018 8:47 pm : link
is the best.
WillVAB : 4/11/2018 10:08 pm : link
Is gonna be a bust in my opinion. I just donít see it.
where in the world is Mason Rudolph?  
NYDCBlue : 4/11/2018 10:48 pm : link
Not that I was going to vote for him, but he is high on my list.

Above several choices such ad Allen or even Jackson possibly (coin toss).
Any of the three QB's Darnold, Rosen, or Mayfield  
giantstock : 4/12/2018 12:42 am : link
OFC anything Giants do overall I'll be happy.

With that said- I'm most concerned with Allen. Abd I feel the giants need the QB.
I was just the 43  
RetroJint : 4/12/2018 6:44 am : link

or John Elway
Josh Allen #1 option - Sam Darnold #2 - Trade down to 5 #3  
Tom in NY : 4/12/2018 10:38 am : link
If anyone has SiriusXM go listen to Jim Miller & Pat Kirwan discuss Allen's abilities/areas for improvement on yesterday's "Moving the Chains" show. They nailed it down pretty well why he is potentially the best QB in this draft.

If the Giants don't want a QB, they need to get a trade down to #5 to guarantee themselves either Chubb or Barkley.
None .  
TMS : 4/12/2018 11:33 am : link
Best position player available, probably Barkley or Nelson (big need for the OL) or trade down for more picks, players. Selfishly do not want to see our pick sit for two years. We need help next year.

Basically how I feel about the QB's. I really wish there wasn't so much risk with Rosen. Mayfield for sure passes the eye test and that's what does it for me. What intrigues me the most, even though in a spread offense, he looks comfortable and in control when he drops back to throw. He seems to get a good read on the D and how the routes will play out. Multiple times I saw him look off a defender and then whip his head over to his primary receiver and deliver accurately with a quick release. Watching him play, it looks like he has control of the offense and has a decent knowledge of what the D is doing on a play by play basis. I think those are some solid attributes to look for. My big red flag with him other than maturity, is when he gets pressure in his face, he struggles mightily (maybe because of his height?). Saying that, not many QB's do well under pressure.

Darnold passes the eye test in some ways, but man, the consistent bad reads and throws into coverage bother me. His mechanics are not perfect either, so some work to do on that front. Darnold carries more upside, but seems to be a bit of a project and will have to sit and learn, which is fine (esp under Eli). Allen to me way way over-hyped because of his arm strength and athleticism.
Baker Mayfield

not based on a deep analysis. I just like what I read about his football instincts, passing accuracy, and brash style.
