Draft Grade: Trust The GM
Based on the sentiment out there, most people will immediately scoff at the draft grade we gave. However, it is based on history and logic. First, there are many false narrative and beliefs about where football is and where it is going. In fact, what wins are QBs that can provide consistent, replicable results, game in and game out, play in and play out. Watch the playoffs and the Superbowl. What wins is solid pocket passing and not messing up trying to make highlight reel plays.
Daniel Jones might or might not be the guy that can lead the Giants back to a championship, but he provides a skill set that quite simply matches what wins. Also, the Giants GM has a long and proven track record at building teams that win.
Moving down the draft, Lawrence is a very good defensive tackle, but maybe taken a little high. However, the Pats exposed the softness of the Rams middle of their defense, and teams are working hard to shore up the interior of the D-line.
Baker was an absolute steal and they were smart to move up and grab him. He was the best CB in the best conference and a rare talent. Adding Love and Ballentine give them a really talented young core of defensive backs.
