The New York Giants are so bad that they might be able to draft Chase Young out of Ohio State. Here is an updated 2020 NFL Draft order through Week 14.

When your favorite NFL team is out of playoff contention, you obviously look towards the upcoming NFL Draft. In most cases, your team is so bad that you have to draft your next franchise quarterback because either you don’t have one or the one you have just doesn’t cut it anymore. But what if you just drafted your guy a year ago and you’re still terrible, like the New York Giants?

New York has lost eight games in a row heading into Monday Night Football, where the Giants will be road underdogs to the division rival Philadelphia Eagles. Though Eli Manning will start, the Giants have their new starting quarterback in Daniel Jones. If they continue to play this poorly, the Giants will be in a position to draft the best defensive prospect in Ohio State’s Chase Young.

The two other teams picking in the top-three, if the season ended today, are likely to go with a quarterback. The Cincinnati Bengals may have won a game last week vs. the New York Jets, but are in pole position to draft Heisman Trophy frontrunner in LSU quarterback Joe Burrow. Behind Cincinnati and New York are the Miami Dolphins, who could look at Oregon’s Justin Herbert.

Here is the updated top 10 of the 2020 NFL Draft heading into Monday Night Football in Week 14.

2020 NFL Draft order, top 10

  1. Cincinnati Bengals (1-12)
  2. New York Giants (2-10)*
  3. Miami Dolphins (3-10)
  4. Washington Redskins (3-10)
  5. Arizona Cardinals (3-9-1)
  6. Detroit Lions (3-9-1)
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9)
  8. Atlanta Falcons (4-9)
  9. New York Jets (5-8)
  10. Los Angeles Chargers (5-8)

Cincinnati, New York, Miami and the Washington Redskins round out the top four. As with Cincinnati and Miami, Washington could look at drafting another quarterback, as Dwayne Haskins hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire in his first year out of Ohio State. Then again, how sure are we that Washington will give Haskins the Josh Rosen treatment, even if this is Washington?

Rosen’s former team in the Arizona Cardinals comes in at No. 5, followed up by the team they embarrassingly tied with back in Week 1 in the Detroit Lions coming in at No. 6. Rounding out the top 10 are the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. 7, the Atlanta Falcons at No. 8, the Jets at No. 9 and the Los Angeles Chargers at No. 10.

The Denver Broncos, the Carolina Panthers and the Eagles all only have five wins up to this point of the season, so they absolutely could find themselves drafting inside of the top 10 if it does hit the fan for them the rest of the way. As for the Giants, they stand a great chance at drafting the best non-quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft. Just lose, baby!
