i just can't see us taking a QB at 6 or even 17

Platos : 3/22/2019 4:34 pm
every year the media blows up the available QBs and they all move up the board.

Quarterbacks taken in the first round
2007
1: JaMarcus Russell, Raiders
22: Brady Quinn, Browns

2008
3: Matt Ryan, Falcons
18: Joe Flacco, Ravens

2009
1: Matthew Stafford, Lions
5: Mark Sanchez, Jets
17: Josh Freeman, Buccaneers

2010
1: Sam Bradford, Rams
25: Tim Tebow, Broncos

2011
1: Cam Newton, Panthers
8: Jake Locker, Titans
10: Blaine Gabbert, Jaguars
12: Christian Ponder, Vikings

2012
1: Andrew Luck, Colts
2: Robert Griffin III, Redskins
8: Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins
22: Brandon Weeden, Browns

2013
16: EJ Manuel, Bills

2014
3: Blake Bortles, Jaguars
22: Johnny Manziel, Browns
32: Teddy Bridgewater, Vikings

2015
1: Jameis Winston, Buccaneers
2: Marcus Mariota, Titans

2016
1: Jared Goff, Rams
2: Carson Wentz, Eagles
26: Paxton Lynch, Broncos

2017
2: Trubisky
10: Mahomes
12: Watson

there are some good picks in there obviously but a lot aren't the home runs people thought they would be. Notice how many times the Browns are up there...

way too many QBs don't translate well to the NFL and I see no point in taking one just to make the media and rabid fans happy.

If DG passes on the top rated guys this year whether they go before our pick or not it's going to be ugly in the media but looking back historically it really isn't warranted.

I personally don't think DG will reach this year unless Haskins or somehow Murray are there at 6.

will be fun to see half this board meltdown when its day 3 and we still didn't pick a QB.

What kind of douche roots for a meltdown?

Here's some news for you - there are a lot of people who are hoping the Giants have an opportunity to secure their successor to Eli and will still manage to maintain their sanity if/when the Giants go in another direction. The Giants are picking in the top 10 for the 4th time in 5 years. I'm pretty sure the fans are going to be optimistic about any player they pick being a difference maker for this team's future.

But go ahead and root for a meltdown. You seem like a swell guy.

Shouldn't you only draft someone if you're 100% certain he is the guy? Giants need a QB. When and where do you expect them to get one?

Should they stay pat and draft another Ereck Flowers or Eli Apple in the top 10?


no we should've made better picks like Gurley/GOrdon/Peat or Tunsil or try like hell to trade back.

I'm not the one pushing any narrative. You said you think DG may reach based on media/fan pressure. That would make him an idiot. The fact that some QBs haven't panned out doesn't mean teams reached because of media/fan pressure. More likely they were just wrong about the talent. You're the one with the explanations that don't make much sense.

We could try to limit topics to things that don't include presupposing that Gettleman might make his draft day decisions on the basis of fan support or media backlash. Would that be a fair compromise?

Some of those guys were so over-drafted it hurts.  
Red Dog : 3/22/2019 6:22 pm : link
Tebow and Manziel should have been off every team's draft board because they had huge red flags. But they were high picks.

Others like Manuel, J.P. Losman, and Winston had enough question marks that should have taken them out of the first round, sometimes way out of the first round.

Yet Drew Brees fell to the top of the 2nd round, and Tom Brady was a 6th rounder.

What this goes to show is that most teams still don't have any idea of how to properly evaluate prospects for the most important position in the game. So they swing for the fences and strike out a lot.
There is more than one way to get a QB.  
81_Great_Dane : 3/22/2019 6:28 pm : link
You can draft one, but QBs have a very high bust rate, even in the first round. You have to be prepared to live with that. (Clearly, busted QB picks drive a lot of BBIers crazy, based on the reaction to Lauletta, Webb and the guys who busted under Coughlin.)

You trade for a prospect from another team, as the Packers did when they got Brett Favre from Atlanta, and as many now want the Giants to do with Rosen from the Cardinals.

You can trade for an established QB, as the Giants once did for Tarkenton. Very very difficult to do.

You can sign a free agent and hope you get lucky, as the Giants did with Kerry Collins (released IIRC) and the Saints did with Drew Brees (coming off injury).

All in all, I wouldn't get too stuck on drafting a QB for need. Getting the right guy is more important than getting a guy right now.

If we donít draft a qb in the first round.

But I know many on this board will.

I agree with the OP..history shows us there is a greater chance a qb we take in round one will not be much to write home about than there is he will be an awesome force for at least the next 10 years.

So I propose we draft BPA according to our needs. So, if some EDGE guy is rated higher than letís say Haskins.....take the EDGE guy. And if some WR rates higher than some available qb for the 17th pick, take the WR. Both players fit needs and are rated higher which means a better chance for success.

Donít force the pick indeed!

Thatís just the thing, that QB class was loaded with question marks, probably more question marks surrounded that class than the top 3 QBs in this class, so hindsight will always be 20/20. For a long time Mahomes was looked at as a fringe first rounder, you heard his named mentioned in first round(late) as draft drew nearer(similar to Odell), but never really saw him hinted at as top 10.

the QB drafts of the last 10 years


Willie that's a very significant point, and I was about to respond that the OP sets up a straw man data point as well by starting the data set with 2007 when jamarcus Russel was #1 overall.

To avoid a straw man data set, one should pick a "random" starting point - like going back 20 years (without looking at the 1999 draft) - and trying to address the point of "forced picks" one should look at, let's say, top 10 picks, because the Giants have the 6th pick overall/ In fact, you could look ONLY at top 6 picks, since later picks are presumably irrelevant to the data set the Giants will have available at pick 6....

Lets do that, for the 20 year period from 1999 to 2018, QBS taken with top 10 picks, and assess the bust rate.

1999 1 Tim Couch
2 Donovan McNabb
3 Akili Smith

2000 1 none

2001 1 Michael Vick

2002 1 David Carr
3 Joey Harrington

2003 1 Carson Palmer
7 Byron Leftwich

2004 1 Eli Manning
4 Phillip Rivers

2005 1 Alex Smith

2006 1 Vince Young
10 Matt Leinert

2007 1 Jamarcus Russell

2008 3 Matt Ryan

2009 1 Matt Stafford
5 Mark Sanchez

2010 1 Sam Bradford

2011 1 Cam Newton
8 Jake Locker
10 Blaine Gabbert

2012 1 Andrew Luck
2 RG III
8 Ryan Tannehill

2013 1 None

2014 3 Blake Bortles

2015 1 Jameis Winston
2 Marcus Mariotta

2016 1 Jared Goff
2 Carson Wentz

2017 2 Mitch Trubisky
10 Patrick Mahomes

2018 1 Baker Mayfield
3 Sam Darnold
7 Josh Allen
10 Josh Rosen

By my assessment (arguable) 16/32 QBs were successes. At least not busts... That's close to the overall success rate of 1st round picks, no?

If you deem your QB a likely potential success with a top 10 pick, take him. you are not so much more likely to do better with a non-QB.

By changing the data set we saw a 10/24 set become a 16/33. By stats, anyway.

That was when they actually believed in MacAdoo (who by the sounds of it trashing Eli non stop behind the scenes). MacAdoo was very adamant he needed a different type of QB to run his offense. That would have been quite a change of fortune if we ended up with Mahomes.

Are you replying to me? For me I think DG is an awful GM. I have little confidence in him. I've said here many times I graded him as an F Grade this past year. There's reasons why he deserved an F Grade which I could explain if you wish?

SO if you think he's pretty stupid or just incredibly thick-headed/ a blockhead (I don't think it unreasonable to think he might be)-- and you hear rumors that he might take jones with the 17thpick (or even Lock) and you tend to think it is real and could happen-- if you don't like these QBs then why wouldn't you think teams would either consistently jump him (outmanuever him) or he'd just be his usual blockhead-self and blunder by taking someone like Jones?

Hey I'm hopeful. One year being so wrong isn't the end of the world. We'll see. I'm excited to see what happens. Even if he tales the guys I most disagree with -- I'll wait with great anticipation and hope. But i fear he's a lousy GM.

What does that mean he "he had a successful draft?" You're looking at it in a vacuum. You look at the totailty of FA and the draft. A successful draft and FA translates into a near vision of being a very good team. Our Qb is subpar. Our receiving core is subpar. Our OLINE has 40% subar,our tight end core is not good and our entire defense sucks.

Other than RB, what position is now clearly straightened out vs could he have straightened out positions with more competency?

Heís saying you donít force it. You only draft a QB if you are 100% certain he is the guy. And heís also saying most picks in the 1st are busts or are not franchise QBs.

How can you not agree.


100% sure? Wow! That explains a lot about the commentary on drafting a quarterback these last 2 seasons.

I guarantee if Eli had retired, 90% of this place would want a QB.

i think it does have something to do with QBs drafted in the past.

we wouldn't know a lot of these names if they didn't go high in the draft. Teams reach all the time. it has nothing to do whether i think he's an idiot or not. i think maybe you're trying to push that narrative.

I personally don't think DG will reach this year unless Haskins or somehow Murray are there at 6.

Or watch the other half melt down when they trade up for Haskins

will be fun to see half this board meltdown when its day 3 and we still didn't pick a QB.

when is it warranted to select a QB then?

When you need one, and when you are high enough to take one and when you are 100% sure he is the guy?

Is that the standard...
This is another reason why you take Sweat over Gary

i just don't think this group of qb's is the right group to pick high and i think we won't see many go early after murray/haskins/lock. and lock is only included in that because of how much smoke the broncos are putting out there over him.

i think if its possible DG trades some picks this year for picks next year(later round) to be able to move up and get someone next year if Eli is truly done even behind a better line.

we'll see.
All possible

Agree with the OP

we will be strengthening both lines and the secondary in this draft. Especially the defense. We are going with ELI next year and after his replacement in the draft as well. We have the cap room for next year to get it done. MO.
I am not on the Eli is *the* problem train, like many  
Bill L : 3/25/2019 1:22 pm : link
and I am not on the Eli can do it for 2 years train.

I think he is the best of our available options this year and can likely have some success. But, his contract is done next season and I see no real reason to retain him. So, I'm on the Eli this year but not next year train.

I see the best team growth coming from quality picks at #6, 17, and second round for both the defense and OL improvement. That gives you better future potetnail than reaching for an overvalued QB. I see better QB's (multiple) next year which can be reasonably obtained. Even with trade-ups they seem to be better values. They'll have a better team foundation because of this draft (and the 50M FA class. I don't see the need for a mentorship or a "Mahomes model" for that class. Throw them in and let's go.
