The 2019 NFL Draft is just nine days away and the suspense that has been building the past few months is about to hit its crescendo. The New York Giants and New England Patriots both have 12 selections in this draft which by virtue makes them the biggest possible players.
The Patriots usually move up and back to get the best use of their picks, while the Giants rarely move off their spots. With Dave Gettleman calling the shots now, he has shown that anything and everything are on the table, so here’s a few moves the Giants could make before — or during — next week’s draft.
A more likely scenario now that the Russell Wilson situation has settled, but still a bit of a long shot. Rosen is no Wilson and may not fit the Giants’ offense. Sure, he’s talented but may not be what the Giants are looking for in Eli Manning’s successor.
The cost for Rosen would naturally be a lot less than Wilson and he’s basically making peanuts the next few seasons. The current offer to the Arizona Cardinals is believed to be a second round pick and the Giants have the highest second rounder of all the teams said to be in the mix for Rosen (No. 37 overall).
The Giants could certainly sweeten the pot by adding one (or more) of the picks they have in this draft to put them over the top. If push comes to shove, the Giants can offer their second first rounder (No. 17 overall) in this draft to get the deal done. That is, if they want to.
