The Miami Dolphins traded veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans on Friday, clearing the way for a rookie quarterback to come right in a take the starting job.

How does this effect the New York Giants? Several ways. No one knows what Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is up to. The consensus is he is leaning towards not selecting a quarterback with any of his top picks (Nos. 6, 17 and 37).

That means he’s either looking to trade for one (Josh Rosen), trade up in the draft for one (Kyler Murray) or just stand pat and select the biggest, baddest defensive players on the board in front of him.

The Dolphins will almost certainly take a quarterback with the 13th overall selection, but the player they want may not be there for them to select.

They could be the ones now who trade for Rosen. But if they don’t, they’ll likely be looking to trade up in the first round and they’ll want to get in front of the Giants at No. 6 to ensure they get their man.

That is, unless they trade with the Giants to get ahead of the Denver Broncos, who have the 10th pick and could still be eyeing a quarterback as well. Sure, they have Joe Flacco now, but John Elway is still looking towards the future.

It’s not known if Gettleman has one particular player that he’s hot for. As we have learned, he is the king of the smokescreen these days. It’s very possible he makes a trade with Miami to move back to No. 13 and grabs two other high picks in the process, perhaps the Dolphins’ second rounder (No. 48) and another pick. Miami has No. 78 in Round 3 as well.

This draft is loaded with talent. The New England Patriots have six picks in the first three rounds (seems unfair, I know) and maybe Gettleman wants to accumulate as many high picks as possible to fortify his roster with the most game-ready as he possibly can.

The Miami situation could also prompt the Giants to expedite any plans they had of acquiring Rosen in order to beat Miami to the punch.

This is the most interesting offseason in recent memory for the Giants and with a riverboat gambler like Gettleman controlling the dice, it promises to get even more interesting.
