A question for giant fans. Did gettleman maybe not suck so bad as a drafter and Joe Judge really just suck as a coach? Dabol (who I wanted for the Jets last year) seems to be getting the most out of the hold overs, especially on defense. Barkley has been reborn. I hope they keep it going and I hope the jets and Giants both suprise a lot of people this year. The only thing I am pissed about the giants beating the cheese heads is we have to play them next week and Rodgers is going to be PISSSSEEEDDD
It's interesting question. Higher the pick though the easier it is to draft a solid player.
His first draft was '18. He drafted Barkley #2 overall. All the gold jacket comments. Sure he's great but an RB at #2 in terms of positional value. The talk was could he have taken someone else at the spot and changed the franchise fortune (ie QB, OT, etc). Nobody else in that draft has amounted to anything.
For clarity I meant no other Giants drafted amounted to anything in that draft. But as for the QB class, yes only Allen turned out good. Mayfield, Darnold and Rosen all mediocre or train wrecks.The 2018 draft definitely did not live up to its hype and, when considering the top three picks (Mayfield, Barkley, Darnold), we got the best of that group. That said, 12 of the top 20 picks have gone to the pro bowl at positions harder to fill than RB. The most prominent is Josh Allen, who was selected 7th by the Bills.
