The first round of the 2018 NFL Draft is over and the New York Giants and New York Jets have planted their flags for the future. After the Cleveland Browns selected Baker Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy-winning QB out of Oklahoma, the Giants and Jets shaped their destinies by selecting Penn State RB Saquon Barkley and USC QB Sam Darnold in rapid-fire fashion.  Continue reading “2018 NFL Draft: Giants, Jets Get Their Men”

Fennelly Makes His Pick For the Giants in SiriusXM’s Mock Draft

The Browns’ faux GM chose NC State Bradley Chubb with the first overall pick, much to my surprise. The hosts of the show, Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller were shocked as well. I thought for sure they would take USC QB Sam Darnold, so I was prepared to mock Chubb to the Giants as their GM for the day.  Continue reading “Fennelly Makes His Pick For the Giants in SiriusXM’s Mock Draft”

Fennelly’s Favorites For the Giants and Jets in the NFL Draft

NFL Draft: If the Browns Select Allen, Expect Giants to Take Darnold

According to Peter King of SI’s MMQB, the Cleveland Browns may be leaning towards selecting Wyoming QB Josh Allen with the first overall pick in this month’s NFL Draft.

What would an April MMQB be without another draft rumor?! This friend of Cleveland GM John Dorsey believes he’ll go Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen over Sam Darnold with the first overall pick, keep the fourth pick, and take Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. “I would be surprised if he traded down,” FOD told me. “This would be his chance to take his two offensive cornerstones for the next eight or 10 years.” The most interesting thing there? That FOD thinks Dorsey will not trade. I think that’s great. Cleveland’s been very good at trading and stockpiling, and not very good at drafting, in the last few years. I hope Dorsey’s more about the (relatively) sure things instead of Cleveland leading the league in draft picks.

This would leave USC QB Sam Darnold for the Giants to take with the No. 2 pick. It does more than just that. Since Darnold is rumored to be the only QB in this class the Giants are considering using this selection on, it makes the pick more valuable in any trade talks since it is known they are serious about Darnold.
