Giants trade up, nab Ryan Nassib in fourth round

Nassib AP

Before the draft, there was talk that former Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib could go in the first round to a team where he’d be penciled in as the starter. Instead, he fell to the fourth round, to a team where he has no chance of being a starter.

The Giants traded up in the fourth round to take Ryan Nassib with pick No. 110. Obviously, Nassib has zero chance to start, barring an injury to Eli Manning.

But the Giants liked Nassib enough that they were willing to give up both their fourth-round pick and their sixth-round pick to get Nassib, who’s a good pocket passer and obviously a player whom Giants G.M. Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin think can be a valuable asset.

There’s no way Nassib is better than Manning, but the Giants may think he’s better than David Carr, who is currently their No. 2 quarterback. If he is better than Carr, he will turn out to be a good value for the Giants — even if they’re hoping they never need him.

    Future trade bait.

    Talented, but flawed. Strong arm. Will be overhyped since he’s now a Giant. Good situation for him, good spot in the draft for the Giants to take a chance on him.

    hahahahaha what do you say now Giants fans who are oddly obsessed with the Jets??? Dont bELieve in Eli no more? ANOTHER quarterback???? HAHAHAHAHA LET THE CIRCUS BEGIN HAHAH OMG WHAT A CIRCUS! WHAT A DISTRACTION TO ELI HAHAHAH WHAT A CIRCUS!

    He’s an upgrade over Carr and Eli Manning needs a successor at some point. Eli is definitely not going anywhere anytime soon, so the Giants could afford to make this move.

    This mirrors the Ryan Mallett situation, where the team grooms him for a few years, then uses him as possible trade bait. Or, they can just choose to keep him to back-up Eli over a period of time.

    Manning is getting up there in age. Who knows what will happen 3 years from now he may take over.

  6. weaponx73 says: Apr 27, 2013 12:58 PM

    What a f-ing horrible pick! They need LB a scety and a CB and we are trading up to take a back up QB.

    Tables are being flipped at the Nassib household

  8. multiplemiggs says: Apr 27, 2013 12:59 PM

    traded a fourth and a sixth for a guy who will never play HAHAHAHAHAH OMG WHAT A CIRCUS!

  9. stevenwilliams2013 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:00 PM

    Poor Kid, he will never play :(

  10. derrickdonnelly says: Apr 27, 2013 1:00 PM

    I hate the Giants but I’d rather be Nassib as a 4th rounder backing up Manning than Geno Smith as a 2nd rounder and be stuck with the Jets.

  11. justintuckrule says: Apr 27, 2013 1:03 PM

    Hey jets. Just give us your 2015 1st rd pick for nassib and we’ll call it a day. No use prolonging the inevitable. That offer is to you too philly

  12. DonRSD says: Apr 27, 2013 1:05 PM

    Trade bait in a few years.
    Last 4th round QB we took was that guy from Kentucky a few years ago, with the weird throwing motion.

    GO BIG BLUE!!!!

  13. lennydpocketqb says: Apr 27, 2013 1:10 PM

    Next generation Eli. See ya in 4 years!

  14. Giantspunk213 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:11 PM

    Should’ve taken Greene, hate this pick

  15. thegronk87 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:12 PM

    khaseem greene was available and the giants needed LB help.

  16. thegronk87 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:14 PM

    lol Nassib is going to get cold-tubbed.

  17. dallassux says: Apr 27, 2013 1:15 PM

    The New York obsession with Philly continues

  18. EJ says: Apr 27, 2013 1:25 PM

    I feel bad for Nassib. Manning will be Quarterbacking the Giants for another 5-7 years. Expect Manning to stay for as long as his brothers career lasts, If not a bit longer. Nassib’s best bet is to learn from Eli and T.C. as much as possible and hope for another team to inquire about his services. I think he deserves a chance to start somewhere. Nassib reminds me of Tom Brady. They have a very similar release and style.

  19. nyg201 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:28 PM

    When is the last time a team other than the giants won a super bowl in the NFC east? Philly doesn’t count because they aren’t a real team.

  20. bluepower77 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:30 PM

    feel better bout ur team getting that post rant out miggs….. yea try and compare the Jets circus to the Giants LOL we’re worried bout backups while ur team has 5 qbs and no stater… still love that Giants “circus”

    Ummm good luck finding a Giants fan that wouldn’t want ANY qb in the league other than Eli (well, maybe Peyton if he was younger). Keep trolling tho. Btw the only circus in NY is the jets obviously, they are the worst team in the league especially on offence and they use their first 2 picks on Defence??? Then they grab Geno hahahahahahahahahahaha talk about a JOKE of a franchise.

  22. jbl429 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:30 PM

    And now the Giants have 3 QBs on their roster all more talented than the 7 QBs on the Jets combined.

  23. sportsnut101 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:33 PM

    Great trade bait for buffalo

  24. 950003cups says: Apr 27, 2013 1:39 PM

    That sucks to be picked up as a QB to back up a QB in an Ironman streak. Here is where the Jets and Giants will show why they are different. You’ll hear the name Gino Smith over and over. The name Ryan Nassib will never be mentioned.

    Maybe we’ll see the Giants trade him to the Jets for 2 first round picks for 2014. You know, as the Jets say, you never can have enough QBs.

    Yeah I guess that “non real” team that’s 8-2 in the last 10 doesn’t count. Too funny. I also guess those two playoff losses don’t count either. Like I said, the Philly obsession continues

  26. kingcarlbanks says: Apr 27, 2013 1:42 PM

    Linebacker? Cornerback? Maybe a Safety? I know my Giants draft for future needs but come on, two picks wasted on a back up QB? Weird draft..

  27. justintuckrule says: Apr 27, 2013 1:44 PM

    Multiplemiggs is the first jets fan to officially go over the deep end. Is their a neighbor who can check on him?

  28. justintuckrule says: Apr 27, 2013 1:50 PM

    @dallussux – you’re right. We do obsess over Philly. The rest of the division is decorated and your sloth team holds the rest back from being recognized as the greatest division in pro sports. Too bad we couldn’t excommunicate your sorry franchise to the outpost known as the afc south

  29. mrplow3 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:51 PM

    “He’s an upgrade over Carr ”

    How can you possibly make a statement like this?

    This kid is raw and has never played a down in the NFL and suddenly he’s an upgrade over a decade long veteran?

    Granted Carr isn’t good but to say this unproven rookie is an upgrade already is ridiculous.

  30. mikelitoris1 says: Apr 27, 2013 1:55 PM

    That’s the 2nd Eagles fan they’ve drafted so far (Justin Pugh is the other).

    Once again we have an Eagle fan touting meaningless wins.

    Regular season records & 2 meaningless playoff wis that the Eagles did absolutely nothing with.

    How many Super Bowl Trophy’s Eagle fans??
    When is the last time you won a Championship?

    That is what counts – Championships. Not regular season wins, although with that team what else you got?

    Whats too funny is to see Philly trolls Giant stories & then calling NY fans obsessesed. 63 years & counting. Don’t be mad Bro.

  32. jintsfan says: Apr 27, 2013 2:04 PM

    Let me get this straight. We have 4 LBs on roster who are incredibly injury prone and 1 special teams player (Paysinger) that’s it w/ Kiwi going back to DE. AND WE TRADE UP?TRADE UP? TRADE UP? For a QB? That’s pathetic. Jordan Poyer still on board and our CBs are WEAK. This guy will never play. I’m soooo disappointed in Jerry for this one. He’s the best but this one is all kinds of wrong. #1 need LB-0 picks #2 need CB-0 picks. Nice

  33. jintsfan says: Apr 27, 2013 2:05 PM

    Kevin Reddick and K. Greene still on board and we go QB

  34. sampsonswag01 says: Apr 27, 2013 2:12 PM

    multiplemiggs hope you’re not using the JETS doctors for your meds.

  35. bookofelisha says: Apr 27, 2013 2:45 PM

    @multiplemigg- the only person giants fans would trade eli for is a 28 year old peyton manning..elis earned his respect from giants fans and media..maybe not other fans but elis cemented in NY

    ps i like this pick. groom him let him take over in 3-4 years when eli is 36. i doubt eli will last til hes 38 hes not cerebral like peyton and doesnt have the arm strengh peyton had in his arm when he was 32

  36. bkostela says: Apr 27, 2013 3:44 PM

    @ jets fan – this prospect is a BACKUP quarterback, your prospect is your ONLY HOPE.

    @ eagles fan – looks like you had to go back to an old win streak to reach for that 8-2 mark. the giants and eagles are 2-2 over the past two seasons. who cares who won games between 2008-2010, besides you of course?

    if nassib is as good as they say he is, the giants got a good prospect. there has to be a reason he slid this far though. fortunately for the giants, they don’t plan on needing him anytime soon.

  37. nachoface says: Apr 27, 2013 4:10 PM

    In three years, he’s the starter in NY.

  38. multiplemiggs says: Apr 27, 2013 5:35 PM

    yea your mothers over here right now…at the CARR NASSIB CIRCUS HAHAHAHAHAHA Unfortunately you peasants dont understand sarcasm….Reese and Coughlin getting wide-eyed over a big name QB is NO DIFFERENT then dumbass Woody doing the same over Tebow. You bums just contradicted yourselves and are in serious denial. I think I should send your back home to check if you BIG FLUKES are alright. Enjoy the circus! ;-) f*cking loser

  39. buddybowl69 says: Apr 27, 2013 5:36 PM

    Law Of Averages. Eli is getting older, and more susceptible to injury. Never know when those twigs he calls legs will snap with a slit breeze, or his arthritic knees will tear to shreds.

    That offensive line that is supposed to protect him is just that: offensive. Old men that can hardly stand up to block after bending over at the line of scrimmage. Diehl is the best of the bunch, if he can stay sober long enough, and doesn’t crash into several cars on the way to the stadium in New Jersey.

    And poor coach Coughlin, the way he stresses out on the sidelines, all red faced; they need an ambulance standing by just for him. He looks like he’s gonna stroke out at any moment.

    Yes, it’s time to have a new back-up QB ready in the wings, even if no other team wanted him. Below average at best.

  40. multiplemiggs says: Apr 27, 2013 5:40 PM

    I still cant stop laughing hahahahah you’re all gonna look so dumb….who the Eff said I was a Jets fan anyways? lmao I just jump on bandwagons like you useless fools, your FOLLOWERS. and not LEADERS. I have no respect for any of you. You live at home still hahahahahhah I make $133 grand a year ahahaha #TROLLFORLIFE

  41. anon5121 says: Apr 27, 2013 7:16 PM

    What the heck is wrong with multiplemiggs? Jets fans have lost their minds. The Giants and Eli Manning have sent them right over the cliff.

  42. NJJohn says: Apr 27, 2013 7:39 PM

    I could just say I Jerry Reese knows much more than I do so what can I say.

    But really, I don’t get it. I don’t.

  43. multiplemiggs says: Apr 27, 2013 7:49 PM

    ahahahhahh your an IDIOT im not even a Jets fan…not even a fan of anyone in the crappy NFC East either….I just love how Giants fans are so obsessed with the Jets and act like a championship organization when they won two fluke super bowls in 30 years. You people are dirty A-holes, do you blame the Jets for talking a little smack and trying to win their own super bowl? I have no problem sticking up for them..so what they tried to win for once then got out of control…why does even after winning a super bowl, crapping on the Jets have to be the number one thing on your list? Better yet, I’m rich why am I even talking to a lower middle class loser like yourself?

  44. kev86 says: Apr 27, 2013 10:36 PM
