The New York Giants are one of those teams with a ton of questions heading into the 2019 NFL Draft, as all eyes are one what they are going to do at quarterback. The franchise has stood behind Eli Manning this offseason, stating that he is still a very good quarterback in the league, and that has fans worried they will pass on a quarterback yet again in the draft.
Last year, the Giants passed on USC quarterback Sam Darnold at No. 2 overall, instead opting to draft Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. While Barkley played at an elite level in year one, this team has a gaping hole behind Manning on the depth chart at quarterback, and there appears to be no real answer heading into the draft.
At No. 6, the Giants could very well select Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, but the rumor is that they are not in love with any of the quarterbacks in this draft. After trading away Olivier Vernon this offseason, the Giants have a need at the edge rusher spot, and they may choose to select Montez Sweat from Mississippi State at six overall.
Sweat is an incredibly talented athlete, who should be able to be a double-digit sack guy at the next level. This Giants defense saw a ton of its talent leave this offseason already, so it would make sense that they would fill some of those gaps in round one later this month. They legitimately could pass on a quarterback again.
