Giants met with Dwayne Haskins Tuesday night

Ohio State will hold its Pro Day workout on Wednesday and quarterback Dwayne Haskins is one of the top prospects heading from Columbus to the NFL this year.

At least one team is using the occasion to do more that watch Haskins go through the motions on the field. Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that a contingent from the Giants that included head coach Pat Shurmur and offensive coordinator Mike Shula met with Haskins and had dinner with him on Tuesday night.

There have been varying reports about the Giants’ level of interest in Haskins, who threw 50 touchdowns in his only season as the starting quarterback for the Buckeyes, but there have been plenty of calls for the team to land a successor to Eli Manning.

General Manager Dave Gettleman has talked about following the “Kansas City model” of drafting a quarterback in the first round and using his rookie season as a learning experience. With two first round picks, the Giants are well stocked to put that plan into motion, assuming, of course, there’s a quarterback that strikes their fancy.

  1. Maybe with the 17th pick. No way with the 6th. Too many holes to fix to and by this time next year (Giants are in tank mode) even less teams will have a QB problem. Last year 4 starters helped that. 3 or 4 will be first round picks, this year.

    Next year the Giants will still need a QB, unless they take the best available at 17 or they might trade a 2nd or 3rd for Rosen. He got David Carred in AZ.

    Eli have been David Carred for years and keeps getting up. Can’t wait for all the Eli haters to realize the Giants will need THREE QB’s with that Oline.

  2. How about #6 & #17 for 1st pick? I wouldn’t have the stones myself but AZ might do it. Or #17 and a 4th for Rosen. But I have a suspicion that they are looking at either Tua or Herbert next year. The Giants have literally no one to rush the passer so I see an edge rusher at 6 and maybe a QB at 17? Picking QB’s is harder than ever because they do not stick around in college.

  3. Sleeper team for me on this is the Bucs. Jameis will never win the bowl, so why continue to run into a wall with him? When was the last time a SB was won with a erratic arm QB running a team.?

  4. Giants want Haskins, are just afraid of another team leapfrogging them. So they are leaking “no interest in Haskins.” It’s a complete no brainer given Eli’s age. They’d have a dirt cheap QB for 4 years!

  5. They aren’t drafting a 1st round QB this year. Instead at 6 they will draft OT Jawaan Taylor. This is Gettlemen’s MO, hog-mollies. They’ll take top def lineman at 17. There’s better QB’s coming next year and the Giants figure to be picking high again.

  6. The Giants either do it this year or next, better equipped this year but the talent pool might be better next year.Tough decision but as long as Eli says he wants to play , the longer the Giants will remain in mediocrity. Seems the Giants are afraid of the Manning Legacy and don’t dare act against it. Thus, use your two picks and get some decent OLiners.

  7. Draft the two best OL men available + Barkley = smash mouth football. Eli can manage , it worked before in 1990 against the Bills!

  8. The Giants want a team to believe they’re going to draft Haskins so that team will trade up ahead of them and push a blue-chip defensive player down to them.

  11. Ehhhh there’s not a long term franchise starter in this draft, methinks, but Haskins could fit what the Giants want to do. At the same time, you can’t fit that plan if you’re a guy who needs time to learn the pro game, how to be a long term starter (Haskins has limited starting experience), and is constantly on your back because the offensive line is the worst in the league.

    I would sit. The Giants’ record is likely worse than last year. There are better QBs coming out next year, and the Giants have the unfortunate opportunity to have a shot at the top three picks. Try and bolster the O-line, maybe the receiving options, and give your next quarterback a better situation to work with.
