Are the Giants hurting themselves by winning?
As the New York Giants chase the NFC East division crown and now find themselves in first place in the division they are actually making life more difficult for themselves when it comes to the 2021 NFL Draft.
Some people think this is horrible and that the Giants should be tanking for a top pick. I disagree and here’s why. First of all, there’s no guarantee that a top-10 pick will even be any good and live up to the hype that follows him into the league.
Secondly, I’d rather see the Giants play hard and fight for a playoff spot then to tank because if they lose games and look really bad then there might be something wrong with the coaching staff, not just the players. Right now we know that New York’s coaching staff is getting the job done with how they’re performing, and they aren’t that far off from competing, they just need a few more pieces.
As long as the Giants have enough draft picks to make their roster stronger, I’m not worried about where they’ve picking, whether it’s top-10 or in the 20’s.
