John Clayton: Best and worst picks of National Football League draft’s first round

John Clayton: Best and worst picks of National Football League draft’s first round

Other Giants fans have suggested waiting until the seventeenth overall pick to select Jones as he likely could have been at that spot as well. Whenever they turn the page to back their new heir to Eli Manning, here is a source of optimism.

Gettleman has essentially bet his and Shurmur's jobs on the development of Jones as a next face-of-the-franchise and eventual Eli Manning successor.

Jones, a 6-5, 221-pound quarterback was a three-year starter for the Blue Devils.

"Who knows? I may go out there in my vehicle and get hit", said Gettleman about the risk.

Players selected this high in the draft should be ones that give you 80% of the team's snaps, or better. Considering the Giants could have grabbed first-rounders Montez Sweat and L.J. Collier and still used their next pick on cornerback Deandre Baker, Lawrence seemed like a odd choice at No. 17 until further digging.




Florida's Jawaan Taylor enters the stage after the Jacksonville Jaguars selected Taylor in the second round of the NFL football draft, Friday, April 26, 2019, in Nashville, Tenn. With both Josh Allen and Ed Oliver still available, many felt they would go in one of those two directions. "You don't know, Sal ... that's really the long and short of it".

NY selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones sixth overall, and Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence 17th overall.

Pushed to explain why, if he thinks Manning can play multiple seasons in NY, he didn't get a player that would help Eli in the short term, Gettleman obfuscated. He can play the one-technique, three-technique and five-technique, which is to say in middle of the 3-4 defense or on either side if Dalvin Tomlinson stays in the middle.

NY grabbed the 342-pound Lawrence with the second choice in the round and then made a late trade getting Baker, who won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's best defensive back past year.
