How about another light coat of mystery concerning where Johnny Manziel lands on Thursday night?
According to Jordan Raanan of NJ.com, the Giants, who select No. 12, could conceivably be in play for Manziel. Raanan, who cited a source “with knowledge of the team’s draft philosophy,” reported that the Giants “would seriously consider drafting” Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner.
Of course, plenty of NFL Draft plans are considered and then scrapped. Given the Giants’ investment in Eli Manning and their needs at other positions, taking a quarterback 12th overall doesn’t seem likely.
The bigger issue for the Giants, though, is that the prospect of them selecting a quarterback early doesn’t seem completely illogical, given how poorly Manning played at times a season ago. Moreover, the 33-year-old Manning is signed for just two more seasons.
