Draft Positional Preview: Quarterback
Excerpt: "Position: Quarterback
Depth chart:Eli Manning, David Carr, Curtis Painter.
The departed: None.
Scouting report: Manning set career-highs of 510 yards passing against Tampa Bay and threw for five touchdowns in the season finale against Philadelphia, but he also went through a cold spell he hadn't experienced since his rookie season.
He had a three-game touchdown drought in the middle of the season -– his worst stretch since 2004 -- which sparked speculation of a tired arm. Manning also threw for one touchdown or less in 10 games this season.
Last year was a bit of a step back for Manning, who failed to throw for 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns for the first time since 2008. An injured Hakeem Nicks had a serious impact on Manning and the offense.
Carr threw three passes last season but serves as a solid backup for Manning and is often lauded by Tom Coughlin for helping prepare the defense as the scout-team quarterback. Painter signed a reserve/future deal with the Giants, who might need to start thinking about developing a young quarterback in the next couple of seasons.
The last time: The Giants haven't drafted a quarterback since taking Rhett Bomar in the fifth round out of Sam Houston State in 2009." Read more...
I would love to see a QB drafted and developed but if we arent going to use the roster spot it would be a waste
Do teams usually release rookie 5th round QBs after their first preseason?
Or is this mostly a giants only thing?
