Analyzing the Giants options with the second pick in the 2018 NFL draft. -
Draft needs (RB), (QB), (OL), (DE)
The Giants could bypass QB and take a Barkley who would immediately spark their offense. Barkley would take a pressure off of Eli Manning. The type of relief that Eli Manning really hasn’t had. -
The Giants have holes along the offensive line (especially the interior) and at defensive end. Luckily for the Giants, EDGE, Bradley Chubb and OG, Quenton Nelson are top notch immediate starters come day one. They could choose one of these two players and have a major upgrade down in the trenches. -
Eli Manning who is 37 years of age, could break down quickly. This type of situation could leave the Giants regretting not taking a QB here in this position. We’ve said this multiple times, the Giants may not have this type of opportunity in coming years to land a potential franchise QB. -
The final option is a trade. If the Giants don’t love a QB in this draft and are set to take Barkley, Chubb, or Nelson. They could trade down and either acquire some draft picks and possibly land one of these three players. Or draft someone else, however, if they trade down they have a lot more chances to fill gaps imwithin this team.
