What Direction Will the Giants Take in Round One of the 2020 NFL Draft?

If there is one thing about the 2020 New York Giants is that the team will not drafting a quarterback in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft – and that is a good thing.

Any bookie software is going to tell you that the Giants have their quarterback of the future already with Daniel Jones, who started and at times was impressive in his games for the Giants in 2019.

The 2020 NFL Draft is something already on the minds of the Giants Front Office, and all eyes are on Thursday April 23rd to Saturday April 25th, as this next draft will take place on Paradise, Nevada and be televised on both NFL Network and ESPN.

A lot of questions are on who the Giants are going to take to try and improve their team, as after going 4-12 the club is going to be picking very high, fourth overall in the draft.

The last time they picked that high, they chose quarterback Philip Rivers, who they would then trade to the San Diego Padres for the rights to recently retired quarterback Eli Manning.

There will not be that much drama this time around, as the Giants don’t need nor will they be looking quarterback with the fourth pick.

So just who will the team be eyeing when they show up in Las Vegas in April?

While the club could use another playmaker or two on offense, the club really needs to focus on the offensive line, and popular site Walter Football with their 2020 NFL Draft on February 4th has them taking a tackle in the first round.

The site has the Giants going with Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas, a player that can protect Jones and make sure he stays upright.

Here is what the site had to say about the team taking Thomas:

The Giants’ defense is an abomination, and they also need help on the offensive line so that Daniel Jones doesn’t keep fumbling twice every week. A No. 1 receiver can be obtained as well. I’ve had Jerry Jeudy slotted here for a while, but the more I think about it, the more I believe general manager Dave Gettleman will address the offensive line.

Andrew Thomas has been very impressive, using his great athleticism and length. NFL personnel believe he has tremendous potential.

A lot of things can happen between now and April, and while things can change, going tackle or lineman sounds like a winner to most that want to see Jones have a bright future.

The Top Three Moments in the Career of Giants QB Eli Manning

For 236 games of his NFL career, Giants quarterback Eli Manning left it all out on the field. Good games or bad, the QB always gave it what he had, throwing for 57023 yards and 366 touchdowns.

Manning said good-bye recently, deciding after playing for 16 seasons to hang it up and enjoy the rest of his years pain free.

If you have check this website or any betting website you will see that more times than not Manning had his Giants team favored in most of the games he was a starter in, winning a pair of Super Bowls.

Today we go back in time and take a look at just a couple of moments that will stand out as the very best of Manning’s career.

3. Taking Down Favre and the Packers 1/20/2008

Everyone was calling for a Tom Brady vs Brett Favre Superbowl, but the Giants and Manning had other plans on this freezing cold day at Lambeau Field.

Helped out by a key interception by the Giants in overtime, Manning and the G-Men defeated the Packers in overtime 23-20.

That day Manning played excellent, going 21-of-40 with 254 yards and zero turnovers, a huge key in tough conditions and a big reason the Giants won.

2. A Huge Comeback Against the Eagles 9/17/2006

The Giants and Eagles are bitter rivals, and in 2006 week two the two clubs did battle in a memorable game that saw Manning and the Giants rally from 17 down in the fourth quarter to pull out a win.

Manning, throwing on almost every play, went 31-of-43 for 371 yards and three touchdowns in the victory.

The QB threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Amani Toomer with 3:28 left, cutting the lead to 24-21, and then with 56 seconds got the ball back with a chance to tie the game.

Manning got the Giants to the Eagles 17-yard line, and from there Jay Feely kicked the tying field goal and sent the game to overtime.

In overtime from his own 15, Manning was on point, going 5-of-5 for 61 yards, including an excellent game-winning touchdown to Plaxico Burress.

1. Slaying Brady Twice

It’s tough to pinpoint which Super Bowl win over Tom Brady was more impressive, so let’s just combine the pair and say that there’s no doubt that Manning’s presence in the two games was key in the wins.

Everyone will look at Super Bowl XLII and his amazing escape and pass to David Tyree to save and game, and then the game-winning TD to Plaxico Burress for the win.

Almost as equally as impressive was the 38-yard pass to Mario Manningham down the left sideline which started the game-winning drive.

Manning threw for 296 yards and a score in the win, and once again for the second straight Super Bowl outplayed Tom Brady.

Longtime Giants QB Eli Manning to Announce Retirement

Giants quarterback Eli Manning is retiring after 16 seasons and two Super Bowl MVPs, this according to a report from ESPN.

Manning will hold a news conference on Friday to officially announce the news, the sources said.

Manning, 39, steps away holding almost every passing record in team history and a pair of Super Bowl rings. His victories over the New England Patriots during the 2007 and ’11 seasons are the most iconic moments from a legendary career. They will have him in the conversation for the Hall of Fame in five years when eligible.

Manning is one of just five players in NFL history with at least two Super Bowl MVPs. He’s in an elite club with Joe Montana, Bart Starr, Tom Brady and Terry Bradshaw.

His decision to call it a career comes after a season where Manning spent most of his time as the backup to rookie Daniel Jones.

He made it clear after the season that being a backup wasn’t much fun and there wasn’t an interest in returning in a similar role, even if Giants owner John Mara left the door open for it to happen. Mara also said it was possible Manning could return to the organization in another role if he decided to retire.

Sounds Like the Giants Would Welcome a Reunion in 2020 with Eli Manning

Giants team president John Mara said Friday that veteran quarterback Eli Manning remains undecided about his future but Mara would welcome him back either as the backup QB or in another role within the organization in 2020 according to WFAN with Moose & Maggie.

“He’s just undecided right now,” Mara said. “The season just ended recently and he needs to take some more time and think about it. And I’ve told him there’s no time limit on that. We’ll talk whenever he’s ready to sit down and talk again.” When asked if he was willing to leave the door open on Manning remaining with the team as the second-stringer, Mara didn’t seem to have a problem with the notion, though he made it clear that would be a choice made by the franchise’s newest head coach.

“I think so,” Mara said. “Obviously that’s something that Joe Judge is going to have something to say about as well, and I’m not sure that that’s what Eli wants to do but, again, he needs to think about it more.”

Mara remains thankful for Manning’s 16 seasons with the franchise, which included four Pro Bowls and two Super Bowl rings, and the entire NFL respects and admires the consistency and class Manning has shown even during the last two difficult seasons.

“We had a nice, long talk, but I don’t think he’s fully decided yet what he wants to do,” Mara said. “And I’ve told him just take his time, think about it some more and then come back and see me again. Obviously, he’s been the best representative of this franchise, maybe that we’ve ever had — I mean, both what he’s done on the field, the way he conducts himself off the field, the professionalism that he shows. You can’t ask for a better representative than Eli Manning. So he’s going to take his time, and we’ll hopefully have another discussion at some point in the future.”

It is almost impossible to imagine Eli in any other uniform and it is also unclear what he would do in the Giants organization going forward. He has said that his long weeks sitting on the sidelines with a clipboard this season taught him two things: that he never wants to be a backup again and he does not want to coach. Perhaps a front office position would fit but clearly the Giants are not in any hurry to sever ties whith the face of their team for most of the past two decades.

Giants Move Quickly, Hire Patriots Special Teams and WR Coach Joe Judge as Head Coach

It did not take the Giants all that long to decide on who they wanted to be the top man on their sidelines moving forward.

Early Tuesday the team came to terms with New England Patriots special teams and wide out coach Joe Judge as the team’s new head coach.

The 38-year-old was offered the job hours after New York product Matt Rhule spurned them in favor of a job with the Carolina Panthers.

Many felt that Rhule, a New York native would be the new coach of the Giants. Judge is a Philadelphia native.
