New York Giants could trade up in the 2019 NFL Draft to select QB Dwayne Haskins
The New York Giants have been linked to parting ways with veteran quarterback Eli Manning for years now. The NFC East franchise will more than likely find a replacement under center this offseason.
Although Manning is still a serviceable quarterback, it is seemingly time to move on with wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and running back Saquon Barkley in need of a solution under center sooner rather than later.
Despite already having a litany of talent on the offensive side of the football, the Giants have struggled mightily as of late. As a result, Jordan Raanan of ESPN believes that former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Haskins may be the answer that New York is looking for.
“The Giants trade up to get quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the draft,” writes Raanan. “Yes, they finally concede that the time has come to really find Eli Manning’s successor, and are willing to do whatever is necessary to land their target. In this case, it’s Haskins, the Ohio State signal-caller. The cost will be their first-round pick plus more draft capital, potentially a future first-round pick. GM Dave Gettleman watched in 2004 as Ernie Accorsi did whatever was necessary to get Manning. He does whatever is necessary to get the top QB in this draft.”
The Giants had very few bright spots to lean on in terms of the 2018-19 campaign. However, all of those horrific memories could be immediately erased if New York actually pulls the trigger and selects Haskins come late April in Nashville.
