I have a feeling they dont but Its a question I was discussing with someone in the media and wanted to get some opinions on
It was regarding the Idea that if ELI falters this year (which likely means the giants also have a bad record, worse than 7-9), will the Giants think about drafting a QB in the first in 2015?
Now, I do understand that the discussion about drafting a future QB isnt even on the table because we really dont know what we have in Nassib BUT for arguments sake, lets say Nassib isnt a good fit (or lets say they trade him on draft day, be it day 1 or day 2), do you believe that the Giants feel like they must draft a 1st rd QB?
Looking back at all the franchise QB the Giants have had, all have been 1st rounders (minus Conerly)
I believe that the Giants would need to go 1st round to find their franchise QB. IMO, the days of finding a franchise guy, past the 2nd round, is slim: the importance of that position, the amount of scouts and all the televised games, will make it very difficult to hide many gems at the QB position
and on to my point, and that is, if the scenario above happens, I believe, the Giants should definitely go QB in the first round. Ive got on guy in mind but we wont know where he goes until the 2014 NCAAF season is over.
Whats your take? Do you believe the Giants would need to go first in order to get a Franchise type QB or can we dive into the middle rounds for one?
