Post Draft Thoughts:
“Engram was one of the more intriguing picks of the first round. Not a lot of mock drafts had him going this high, but he is one of the biggest matchup nightmares in this draft. After adding an experienced wide receiver, the Giants now have a very wide mix of weapons for Eli to throw to. Webb doesn’t seem, in any way, like a West Coast Offense QB, but that seems to be a trend of WCO coaches and GM’s- drafting QB’s that in no way match your system. Bisnowaty was an excellent value in the 6th and could become a starter by the start of the season.”
2018 NFL Draft
The Giants didn’t wait long to clean house at GM and head coach and are already a few steps into turning the franchise back in the right direction. The to-do list is long: evaluate big contracts of underperforming players and see what players can be cut without too much pain, find a head coach and coaching staff, rebuild an offensive scheme that doesn’t fully revolve around one player, come to terms with how the next few years will be regarding your hall of fame QB.
In regards to Eli Manning, he has two years left on his contract and a no trade clause. The toxic element has been removed, so working with Eli on either a trade, or being up front about drafting the next QB should be done with open, thoughtful communication, and will be a priority as soon as a new coaching staff is in place.
On top of the QB situation, this team needs a left tackle. Sometimes one new, uber talented player at a position unit can allow other players to move into lesser, and more appropriate roles based on their talent, and that Giants need to hope that this can happen for them.
If the Giants can stabilize their QB and left tackle position, another important element to this offense that hasn’t clicked in some time is in the running game. This is a very deep class, and if they shouldn’t have to spend a high pick to improve that position.
