The star QB for the Oregon Ducks has been getting a lot of attention from Giants scouts. Many expect him to be the first overall pick in this year’s draft and it seems like the Giants could have that pick after this year is over. And if the Giants were to go QB, Justin Herbert is the way to go. In his play for the Ducks, he has shown that he has a great arm and the mobility that Eli Manning never had.
Other QBs from the 2019 Draft
Even though Justin Herbert has been getting a lot of buzz with the Giants this year, there are still a lot of other QBs the Giants could get this year. Will Grier has been lighting it up for West Virginia and could be taken in the mid to late first round. Drew Lock and Ryan Finley from Mizzou and N.C. State looks to also be taken in the first round. Of course, there are other prospects that can move up the draft board as the year progresses. Northwestern QB Clayton Thorson, as well as Duke QB Daniel Jones, look to be risers as we move closer to draft day.
After an abysmal loss to the Seahawks in London, Raiders coach Jon Gruden made it clear that no one on his team is untouchable. Even former Pro Bowl QB Derek Carr. Gruden probably has not liked the way Carr has been playing this season, throwing more picks than TDs. And if the Raiders continue with the course that they’re on, Gruden might want to rebuild after this season. However, if the Giants trade for Carr they will most likely have to give up a first round pick- and more.
After a surprising trade into the Colts starting role last year, former NC State QB Jacoby Brissett was pleasantly surprising. According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, Brissett was liked by many inside the Giants organization before he was snagged in the third round of the 2016 draft by the Pats. With Luck back this year, the Colts have no need for Brissett, other than in a backup role, so a trade to the Giants could be very possible. Brissett could either be conditioned to become a full-time starter or serve as a bridge to either Lauletta or a QB the Giants take in this year’s draft. His stats over his 17 starts are 310/ 525 for 3498 passing yards, 13 TDs, and 7 Ints. He also has five rushing TDs.
CJ Beathard: Starting in San Fran right now after Jimmy G tore his ACL, he has been quite impressive.
Joe Flacco: Could be out of Baltimore as soon as after this year.
Kyle Lauletta: Giants fourth-round pick from this year’s draft. He was underwhelming in preseason
