The New York Giants have taken justifiable criticism for the moves we’ve seen general manager David Gettleman make the past two offseasons.
While Saquon Barkley ended up winning Rookie of the Year this past season, the idea of selecting a running back over a potential franchise quarterback didn’t sit well.
Following a disastrous 2018 campaign, New York made the even more unpopular move of trading star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for pennies on the dollar.
Now stuck with Eli Manning and a bunch of unproven talent, the team needs to rebuild. For most, that means adding a quarterback in the first round.
We’re here to say not so fast. Here’s why.
Team building: Giants lacking talent pretty much everywhere.
Running back, tight end, guard and free safety are the only four positions New York is pretty much set right now. Team building is much more than the quarterback position.
New York is planning to roll with Manning next season anyway. Adding a quarterback in the first round doesn’t change this.
