    Re: What if the giants just dont pick?

    [quote user="slipknottin"]jmike brought this up a couple days ago.

    Last pick of the first round, they could just choose not to select anyone and let time expire. They would then have the entire night to work trades, figure out what player they would like to select, etc.

    They didnt have this opportunity in 2008 because then the first draft day was 1st and 2nd round combined. (technically they werent picking 32nd that year either, but that didnt make a functional difference)[/quote]

    I would think there would be something in place to prevent this kind of situation.

    But stranger things have happened.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

      Re: What if the giants just dont pick?

      Truth is that unless one of us has heard from a league official, we're all just speculating what will happen. I doubt the Giants F.O. would play games with the NFL, given the seemingly "cordial" relationship between Mara and Goodell. Why risk that for a something relatively value-less.

      But I think if the Giants did (on purpose or on accident) go past the time limit, the league should do what they've always done when a team does this. They put the next-up team "on the clock".

      Since the Giants are wrapping-up Round 1, that (in my mind) would mean shutting off the cameras and lights and sending all the football people to their hotels. Then when Day 2 opens, Rams would be "on the clock", with first priority to get a pick in (in the opening moments).

        Even if they put the next team on the clock, the previous team still is able to pick before them. The team that passes on its pick always has the priority pick.

        And I dont see how this is going to offend the NFL or something like that. Giants are abiding by the rules.

          That's not true; if a team doesn't get it's pick in by the allocated time - the next team is on the clock!!

            the next team is on the clock, but the team who didnt pick can put its pick in first.

              But the clock doesn't START until the next day, that's the beauty of this strategy. You'd have tons of time for teams to talk trade and maybe pick up an extra pick. If nothing good comes then you just make your pick.

              That said, I bet the league already has something in place that says the first round must be concluded Thursday, and no one is allowed to pass over night. If they don't they might after someone inside reads this thread, LOL. Because it's not just the last guy, the Pats could do it with nearly the same effectiveness, as could the 49ers and several other late drafting teams.

                [quote user="slipknottin"][quote user="jjj45"]What time does the second round start the next day?
                [/quote]

                7 PM[/quote]So then theoretically you could have all day to decide who to draft.

                      What if the giants don't pick and use the extra time as leverage. (go on to explain how they have nothing to lose in doing so)

                      now that I have had some time to think about it. I'm sure the league would say some BS about it going against the "spirit"of the draft. Akin to penalizing Dallas and Washington when no written rule was in place.

                        It is a pretty shady thing to do. Consider if Weeden is still available and the Giants want to trade back. This gives them almost a full day to get a deal done. Slick way to work around the current rules but is it fair for the 32nd pick to have such an advantage?

                          My guess would be once the giants time runs out the rams can make a pick and after either team makes a pick then the night ends. If the rams make the pick then when they start up the next day when they start up the giants can pick but the colts can also put in their pick before the giants so i think it would just be a continuation of that until the giants made their pick

                            This has been clarified by Ralph Vacchiano

                            It turns out a team can not pass out of one day and into the next. The
                            Giants absolutely have to make a pick tonight, if they don't trade it

                            If they let the clock run out, the Rams (who
                            have the 1st pick of Round 2) will have the option to make their next
                            pick immediately but the Giants would still have to make a pick before the night ends.
