Will Giants pass on a quarterback?

The most recent reporting regarding the Giants plan for the second overall pick was simple: Quarterback Sam Darnold if hes there; otherwise, running back Saquon Barkley or defensive end Bradley Chubb.

Paul Schwartz of the New York Post has a new take on the situation. While not necessarily a clear-cut report and instead more of an informed tapestry of rumor, analysis, and speculation, Schwartz predicts that the Giants wont take a quarterback at No. 2, because they dont feel strongly enough about the likelihood that any of them will become a perennial All-Pro and potential Hall of Famer.

Instead, the thinking is that the Giants and G.M. Dave Gettleman will lean toward Barkley with the second pick.

I thought all along this is the guy Dave wants, an unnamed scout with no apparent connection to Gettleman, other than crossing paths with him on the road over the years, suggested. And he might get him, if Cleveland is dumb enough not to take him at No. 1.

And thats the risk in rolling the dice on a franchise quarterback. Roll wrong, and a team like the Titans will take Jake Locker and a team like the Jaguars will take Blaine Gabbert with a guy like J.J. Watt still on the board.
