NFL Draft: Three Questions for the Homestretch

It's possible Big Blue can look to draft the successor to Eli Manning. Keep an eye on Lauletta because scouts are beginning to buzz that he may be just as good a prospect as the "big five" quarterbacks the TV analysts are drooling over.

The Giants have a clear need at running back. Despite the Giants adding left tackle Nate Solder and left guard Patrick Omameh, there's still a lot of work to be done.

The 2018 NFL Draft is just over one week away and the Buffalo Bills are expected to make a play for one of the draft's top quarterbacks. All these possibilities remain open for the Giants in the upcoming draft. Then, again taking the best player in the draft could very well be the end result here. And so, there's a learning curve there for a quarterback to adjust to processing and having answers. Wyoming's Josh Allen goes No. 1 to the Cleveland Browns, while Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield lands with the New York Jets at No. 3 overall. If they trade back into the first-round, it is possible they take Lamar Jackson from Louisville.

Several reports have surfaced that there is internal debate within the Giants organization over whether to choose USC quarterback Sam Darnold or Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, if both are on the board at No. 2 overall in next week's 2018 NFL Draft. But even those points are typically raised more as a dig at Allen than anything else. Allen has struggled with his accuracy throughout his collegiate career, but his strong arm and prototypical size have National Football League scouts intrigued.

Ian Thomas, Indiana: Thomas only had three receptions at the FBS level entering 2017 and caught 28 passes for 404 yards and five touchdowns last season. Against the Ducks he completed a career worst 37.5 percent of his passes.

What do you think the answers are to these questions?

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton knows all about good quarterbacks. The former Heisman Trophy victor has a big arm and is the most athletic player at the position.

But he also threw out a sleeper pick possibility - a player he called a potential "steal" for the Titans - while continuing to link a tight end to the team.

In the beginning, a lot of people thought San Diego had fleeced the Giants, much the way the Cowboys did to the Vikings in the Herschel Walker trade. But new GM Dave Gettleman said he wants a Hall of Famer ...
