The New York Giants took on the Dallas Cowboys in a huge early-season matchup on Sunday night, looking to avoid going 0-2 for the second straight season. However, the Cowboys pass rush proved to be too much for the Giants offensive line, who continues to get starting quarterback Eli Manning killed.
Last year, the Giants decided to go running back early in round one, figuring Manning had some good years left, and they could possibly make another run at a Super Bowl. Through two games, the Giants look more like a team that will once again pick early in round one, and they cannot pass on a quarterback again.
This draft class may not have as many first round quarterbacks as the 2018 class, but they have some stellar signal-callers coming out in 2019. One of those arms is Will Grier from West Virginia, who has the talent to be a starter in the NFL right away, and would benefit from sitting behind Manning for at least a year if the Giants take him at No. 3.
New York’s offensive line is atrocious, and that is not going to get better any time soon. They need to continue to bring in talent, much like they did with Nate Solder and Will Hernandez this past offseason, but this early in round one, you have to go quarterback, especially after passing on Sam Darnold this past April.
