Giants considering trading down in NFL Draft from 2nd overall due to many needs
Just earlier today, one of the teams that was expected to stay in their current spot was the New York Giants, who currently sit with the second pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Many experts had Penn State running back Saquon Barkley selected in that spot, but that doesn’t appear to be a sure thing.
Dianna Russini of ESPN thinks that might not be the case anymore though, as there is a chance that they will actually move down because of the many needs that they has.
Spoke to a Giants source. He said the feeling in this building today is the Giants are looking to trade down. When I asked why? He said “we have a ton of needs”
NYG contemplating all options.

There are a few teams that may be interested in trading up are the Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, and the Los Angeles Chargers, who would be looking for a quarterback if they decided to move up for the future.
If the Giants don’t want to go with a quarterback and still feel comfortable with Eli Manning for a few more years, trading out is probably the smartest play. Still, passing on Bradley Chubb and Saquon Barkley might be tough given their high ceilings.
With so many quarterbacks being taken so early, there will still be a lot of talent left wherever they trade back to, and they would no question get a boatload of picks in return.
There is still a lot to figure out in terms of how the draft will go tonight, but with less than two hours to go, the Cleveland Browns are on the clock.
One thing is for sure: it will be a fun night in Dallas
