  • ESPN: Nassib best pick of NFL draft

    from ESPN insider:http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft...ian-best-picks

    , i googled to find the story:

    Excerpt: "Throughout the seven rounds and 254 picks of the 2013 NFL draft, there were a lot of players with very impressive college careers welcomed into the professional ranks. And as I review all of the selections now, I'm reminded of one very important fact: All of those college titles, stats and accolades mean precisely zero in terms of their future in the NFL. The slate is wiped clean. From now on, the success of every player in this draft, be it No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher or Mr. Irrelevant Justice Cunningham, will be determined by how hard they work and apply themselves on the pro playing fields.

    As we reflect on the draft, we have a tendency to weight the higher picks more than players selected in later rounds. It's a natural inclination, but it's a faulty one. While they may not have stood out as much as their top-round counterparts in college, they have the same opportunity to succeed in the NFL. Just ask Joe Montana. Just ask Tom Brady. Just ask Alfred Morris.

    In reviewing my favorite picks from the 2013 draft, that's a factor I keep at the top of my mind. And it's a big reason I think that the New York Giants landed a tremendous asset by taking Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib.

    As I mentioned before the draft, there were no quarterbacks that I believed warranted an early selection. But that doesn't mean the position is devoid of talent. Just that these prospects need time to develop and make use of some of their tools and ability. With Nassib, he's going to get precisely that.

    Playing behind Eli Manning, there will be no rush in his development. He can sit back, watch and learn, all while providing the Giants with a terrific safety net in the event of an injury to Eli and perhaps even proving to be Manning's successor.

    By Nassib's third year in the pros, Manning will be 35, an age at which statistics have shown QBs usually start to break down physically. Their skills may not have diminished, but the accumulation of the punishment they've endured starts to take its toll and injury becomes far more common. By the time that starts to impact Eli, Nassib should be experienced to the point where the Giants will feel comfortable inserting him into a game and still feeling they have better than a 50-percent chance to win.

    It may have seemed like a strange pick because quarterback isn't an immediate need for the Giants. But this pick was made with the long view in mind. And I think it was a very savvy selection." Read more...

      Yep, Eli has 6-8 years left in him. Perfect time to draft our future QB. Makes total sense.

        at the very least perhaps it'll shame Eli into not having that third cheeseburger with his six-pack

          Like what ESPN said having Nassib is a great insurance to the team since QBs usually start to break down physically at the age of 35

          Even though we have a tough as nails QB as Eli I think it is a great idea to start grooming a QB

          Let's just all hope Eli can stay healthy and win another Super Bowl

            Keep in mind Eli will be 35+ in 2016 when he would be due to become a FA also the way his contract has been restructured its a huge hit in 2015. for all we know the FO is not wanting to give him another huge contract at that age. also who says Eli wants to play till 38-40 . these next two years will tell us more.

              I still think our future quarterback is probably getting ready to finish his senior year in high school. I think Nassib is probably going to be no more than our new Bomar, Woodson or J-Load.

                This doesn't make sense, thus no sense was made.

                  What makes you think that Eli is a lock to play 6-8 more years ? You are saying with no doubts in your mind Eli is going to play 'till he's 38-40 years old ? If something is for sure in this sport is that nothing is forever and you don't now as a player when is going to be your last game. All I'm saying is the Nassib pick is starting to make more sense by the minute for us mortal fans. Giants are in a win-win situation here and they know it.

                    How do we know that Nassib will turn out to a a good\great QB?from what's been said, he had trouble throwing the deep ball, how will that help him throw against the swirling winds at MetLife stadium?He's a cheap backup| possible future trade bait.

                      "As a fan you see this pick and you say, they moved up to get a quarterback? That's stupid. And as a fan you're right. We're invested in the team emotionally (and financially to a point), but we're not providing for our families based on how well the Giants play. As a fan you're thinking if Eli Manning gets hurt for an extended period of time the season's lost anyway and we might as well get a high draft pick.

                      But as a coach and general manager, and as scouts you're thought has to be that if the team takes a nose dive in any of these years I could lose my job -- just ask Bill Polian. Polian is one of the most decorated general managers in the league -- a guy who didn't have a losing season in a decade with the Colts. He lost Peyton Manning, had terrible backup quarterback play and is now working with ESPN. Having a backup quarterback can save seasons -- and jobs. It's important."

                        I don't have a crystal ball to answer that question my friend but the fact is that Nassib is a kid full of talent, he is coming to a class organization and he is going to learn from a 2 time SB MVP. If he pans out and Eli ( knock on wood ) has a career ending injury the successor will be already on board. In another scenario he could be a great backup and spell the Giants cap numbers in signing vets for more money or he could be trade bait for the future or if he doesn't pan out you will only lose a 4 th round pick . Again the Giants are in a win-win situation if you take in count the value Nassib gave the Giants for a lousy 4th round pick.

                              I think this kid is way better than those. and even J lo had potential. he just couldnt keep his weight in check.
