The 2-7 Giants are tied with the Cardinals for the third-worst record in the NFL, putting them on track to have another top-five pick in the NFL Draft.
While the potential QB class of 2019 isn’t as star-studded as the 2018 class that featured Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, and Josh Rosen, there are a bunch of potential first-round talents the Giants can dream on if they choose to pick Eli Manning‘s replacement.
Here’s how they performed this weekend…
Justin Herbert, Oregon
A Giants contingent including GM Dave Gettleman traveled to watch Herbert’s strong performance last Saturday as he completed over 60 percent of his passes for the first time since last September while tossing three touchdowns and no interceptions. The junior wasn’t as good during Saturday’s 31-29 win over Arizona State, completing 19 of 34 passes (55.9 percent) for 262 yards with two touchdowns and two picks.
Drew Lock, Missouri
The senior was strong again as Missouri obliterated Tennessee, 50-17. Lock completed 21 of 30 passes (70 percent) for 257 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. His completion percentage has been 66.7 percent or better in four of his last five games, during which he’s thrown 11 touchdowns and only two interceptions.
Will Grier, West Virginia
Grier had what was arguably his worst performance of the season during Saturday’s loss to Oklahoma State. And it was still solid. He completed 27 of 48 passes (56.3 percent) for two touchdowns and no interceptions. The completion percentage was the lowest of the season for Grier, whose season average is 67.2 percent.
Ryan Finley, NC State
The senior was tremendous during Saturday’s 52-10 win over Louisville, completing 26 of 36 passes (72.2 percent) for 316 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. Finley has 11 touchdowns and two interceptions over his last four games.
Daniel Jones, Duke
Jones had his second subpar game in his last three, completing 24 of 43 passes (55.8 percent) for just 158 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions against Clemson. After starting the season with four straight games with completion percentages above 60 percent, he’s managed to top 60 percent just one time in his last five games.
