@TomPelissero
After consulting his calendar, Kentucky edge Josh Allen told me he has 5 visits set: #49ers, #Raiders, #Bucs, #Giants and #Lions. He met with Giants yesterday and had dinner with Oakland GM Mike Mayock, DB coach Jim OíNeil and teammates Lonnie Johnson and Mike Edwards.

1:45 PM - Mar 22, 2019 ∑ Kentucky, USA
He would be awesome  
Chip : 3/23/2019 9:46 am : link
if he was there. More than likely he won't be
Interesting no Jets  
Giantimistic : 3/23/2019 9:47 am : link
Might be true that they would pass because of scheme like it was stated here a few days ago.
Likely goes to Raidahs....

Allen is my fav  
Rjanyg : 3/23/2019 9:53 am : link
Last year Nelson was my fav. Both go number 6 in the draft?
Like Allen  
jeff57 : 3/23/2019 10:03 am : link
But wouldnít trade up for him.
He's the one guy I would take  
Dave on the UWS : 3/23/2019 10:04 am : link
over Haskins there (well maybe Q. Williams)
I'd be fine with a trade up for him or Williams...

Met with the DB coach?  
robbieballs2003 : 3/23/2019 10:24 am : link
Weird.
Jim O'Neil is not a DB coach.  
robbieballs2003 : 3/23/2019 10:27 am : link
He is a senior defensive assistant who has also been a defensive coordinator.
prepare for any scenario  
larryflower37 : 3/23/2019 10:48 am : link
If 1 or 2 teams trade up for QB's, Allen could drop.
The more I learn of possible

Giants draftees, the more confused I get about whom they may select

As it should be.
No way he falls  
superspynyg : 3/23/2019 10:55 am : link
Too many teams need ER If not Raiders then def the Bucs

I agree, but the Giants have the draft capital to try and trade up if they wanted to draft a specific player, except Murray who the Cards seemed to be locked on.
This pleases me  
McNally's_Nuts : 3/23/2019 11:08 am : link
...
Bosa, Q Williams, & Murray could (should) all go ahead of him  
Eric on Li : 3/23/2019 11:18 am : link
so whether he falls or not depends upon whether someone trades up for Haskins and 1 other player being deemed a better scheme fit.

The 2 players who seem most possible to get selected are the LSU guys - Devin White specifically seems like someone who could surprise and go in the top 5. Last year nobody expected Denzel Ward to go #4. Cornerbacks are a premium and Greedy Williams has elite size, speed, and production. I wouldn't bet on it, but I could see how for certain teams/schemes those 6 players could be selected over Allen (Oak?).

I highly doubt anyone would take any of the other edge guys like Gary or Sweat over Allen, but it's not completely out of the realm either.
Interesting  
Philu916 : 3/23/2019 11:42 am : link
Definitely interesting no Jets, but he definitely wonít fall to Lions. Wonder if they are interested in trading up for him.
Unlikely to fall to us  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 3/23/2019 1:38 pm : link
But possibility a couple of the dumber teams don't like teh analytics of a 4.7 40 and he drops. Raiders, Jets, TB, SF for example.
Josh Allen  
jacob12 : 3/23/2019 2:07 pm : link
Allen ran a 4.63-40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. He is larger and faster than Khalil Mack.

If Sweat didn't have that heart condition I could see him going over Allen with someone trading up for him. A 6'6" 260 guy running a 4.41 seems almost inhumane so someone was going to fall in love with him.

Could happen if 2 teams trade up for QB.
3 QBs in the top 5 could make it happen.
Murray #1
Bosa #2
Q. Williams#3
Raiders trade out Haskins(Bengals)
Tampa trades out Lock (Denver)
Giants Allen
Could happen. Be prepared for anything
Hopefully  
Bluesbreaker : 3/23/2019 6:43 pm : link
somehow he falls to us I really don't want to trade up
for anyone unless they are sold on a QB .
Only guy that might be is Haskins IMO
Had no idea Mike Mayock was named GM  
widmerseyebrow : 3/23/2019 7:01 pm : link
Of the Raiders.

From what Iíve read, Gruden is still heavily involved in the personnel side so I wonder how much authority Mayock actually has.
I read this too quickly  
Matt M. : 3/23/2019 8:07 pm : link
I thought Josh Rosen.
FWIW:  
mrvax : 3/23/2019 8:17 pm : link
Back in early January, I had a premonition that he would be the Giants first pick.

In a press conference Mayock flat out said that Gruden has final say over all personnel matters. Mayock is basically an assistant GM to Gruden.
