How and where could the NY Giants land him?
Now here’s the tricky part, with Josh Jones not appearing to fall in line with where the NY Giants currently pick; #4 being too high and #36 likely being too low to and him.
However, as we all know, once draft night start crazy things happen. Does Las Vegas (man that is so weird to write) try to move up to #4 and give up #12 and #19? That’s a very entertaining scenario and with the Raiders needing a quarterback, it’s on the table.
Does Miami try to further jumpstart their rebuild by packaging #18 and #26 to go with back-to-back elite prospects at #4 and #5? I’m listening.
The most likely route is either hoping he falls to #36, which is unlikely due to the fact that some team is going to probably take a stab at the clear #5 OT after the run ends outside of the top 15.
One route that really could work is similar to what happened with Deandre Baker last year, where Dave Gettleman has a high grade on him and sees him slipping towards the end of the first round only to trade back in.
This would probably require a third-rounder next year (or this) or maybe a package of a four and a later pick. The ideal scenario would be getting a team to take picks in next year’s draft, but this scenario needs to be on the table should he fall into the late 20’s/early 30’s on draft night.
