Giants GM Dave Gettleman Says the Door is Open to Moving the Second Pick in the Draft

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman left the door open to a potential trade down in the first round, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

“Are we open for business? Any decision I make’s gonna be in the best interest of the New York Football Giants, plain and simple,” Gettleman said. “So if someone makes me an offer I can’t refuse, would I move back? It depends upon who’s there.”

But the GM qualified that his decision will have everything to do with the answer to a simple question: Is there a future Hall of Famer, a “generational player” as Pat Shurmur said, who is a can’t-miss star? Because if that player exists and he’s still on the board after Cleveland picks first, then it wouldn’t be a tough decision for Gettleman at all.

“If there’s a guy worthy of being the second pick of a draft — and what we’re basically saying if we answer that question to the affirmative, you’re drafting what you think’s gonna be a Hall of Fame player — you can’t get too cute about the whole thing,” Gettleman said. “You know what I’m saying?”
