They had 31 teams offering them something for CHJ. The offers were garbage. Journalists across the US and even Canada know there were trade offers for CHJ.I’m listening to the Elway and Fangio press conference right now and they claim QB was never a consideration for us, also claim nobody has sent them trade offer for Chris Harris.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they go o-like and CB in second round.
Reaction around here to the trade back - Fant pick is very mixed.
I would say half the guys I have listened to so far say they like the trade back but don't like the Fant pick, and the other half felt we should have stayed at 10 and taken Bush (who Pitt took there with the trade). Someone already calling it a "C- Draft" and I think that is way premature. We have to at least wait and see what we do with the pick we got from Pittsburg to judge the move. I think Fant is gonna be a big time playmaker we haven't had since Julius Thomas.
It's not just the pick that's bad but the value at where they got him. And the irony of picking a shitty QB prospect at pick 6 isn't lost on me either. This could be a historically bad pick for them.
Giants needed a pass rusher not interior D line. Drafting Allen at 6 and Jones at 17 would have gone down better. They then traded back into the first round wasting draft capital to take a CB. If you're a Giants fan you can't have any confidence in the way they handled this draft. Gettleman will be out of a job in 2 years but the damage has been done.
Crazy that a pass rusher like Allen is still there for someone
Best pass rusher (Allen) falls to Jax. Probably not a huge position of need but hes too good not to pick there. Shocked he fell to them.
I've had pure joy for the last few years as a Kentucky season ticket holder watching this guy. He is something special, and I hear he is a great guy off the field as well, charity work, etc.
No fun for a Bears fan in this years draft, but I guess its hard to complain too much when we have Khalil Mack.
I would argue they needed both, but I guess which need was greater is subjective. Overall I agree, Allen was giftwrapped to whoever would end up taking him once he fell out of the top 5. Bottom line is no one other than the Giants were taking Jones before Haskins or Lock, in my opinion. They fell in love with their guy and I guess didn't wan to "risk it."
I firmly believe that if you truly love a QB you HAVE to take him, no matter what, but this was a case where I feel they were the only ones in live with Jones and it cost them tremendous value.
Again, just my opinions.
I’m brain farting hard today on names, my meds have me feeling “floaty,” but I feel the Raiders shit the bit when they took (Clemson Guy) over Allen. It feels like they went with maybe a “safer floor level” then potential high ceiling level.
Curious to see if Will Grier goes in second round. Lock still on the board as well. I’m not high on either guy. Haskins was “The Guy” this year imo.
looks like it's going to be Rosen to Miami for the 48th PIck. Unless Rosen is a complete bust I still don't understand What the hell they are doing in Arizona. Just seems like a complet clusterfuck down there
When they didn’t go QB in R1 it was a pretty big signal they were looking at Rosen. They must not be in love with Haskins or Lock and figure that second round pick is getting top 10 talent value in their estimation. In that lens, it’s a great move. If he develops into quality starter it’s a huge win
Yea, I could see them going Center seeing as Pradis is gone. It sucked to see him go, but I understand why it happened.Interesting.
Greedy Williams and Dalton Rizner there for us now. If Elway goes Drew Lock I would be pretty disappointed but it's possible.
I hope they don't get Metcalf. I know he runs fast in a straight line but I dont think he is a good WR.
They could go McCoy at center here too
