Giants need to take the best player that falls to them
ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter was a guest on Jordan Raanan’s podcast, “Breaking Big Blue” and said that he believes a total of four quarterbacks will be taken within the top-10 of this year’s NFL Draft.
What that means is that some of the top players like Alabama wide receivers Jaylen Waddle and Devonta Smith could both fall out of the top-10 and into the New York Giants’ lap at 11.
Even though the Giants just signed wide receiver Kenny Golladay to a big-time contract, there is no way they could pass up drafting either Smith or Waddle if they’re available and at the top of their draft board.
Despite the fact that the Giants are loaded at receiver on paper with Golladay, Darius Slayton, John Ross and Sterling Shepard, they’re all a Victor Cruz knee injury away from their careers being altered.
Also, what if Smith ends up being better than Slayton, or even Golladay? How could a team pass up that talent to take an edge rusher or another player from more of a position of need? I would hope Giants’ general manager Dave Gettleman won’t make the mistake of passing up on Smith or Waddle if they fall to him.
