Kurt Warner questions if Daniel Jones is a 'difference-maker'

Hall of Famer Kurt Warner knows a thing or two about quarterbacks having played the position at a high level in the NFL for more than a decade, not to mention his work as an analyst on the NFL Network for some time now. And while some teams believe Daniel Jones might be the best quarterback in the draft, Warner isn’t entirely sold on the Duke product. Here’s what Warner had to say on Jones, via Bob Glauber of Newsday: I’m a firm believer that you have to have a difference maker at that...

We hope our two-axis format is more useful than just a numerical listing of players

It has all led up to this, the 2019 Big Blue View Big Board. We have been previewing potential draft prospects at least since we started the Big Blue Big Board podcast back at the end of October and those evaluations have grown to this point on the eve of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Giants GM showed off Super Bowl rings during Drew Lock visit

The New York Giants are surveying quarterbacks ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft, and they’re doing a little extra to ensure that at least one comes away impressed. When the Giants hosted Missouri quarterback Drew Lock for a visit, general manager Dave Gettleman went above and beyond to offer him a glimpse of the organization’s history. “I think Dave Gettleman is the man,” Lock said Wednesday, via Matt Lombardo of NJ.com. “He pulled the Super Bowl rings out. I had a really deep...

Giants restructure Kevin Zeitler's contract

The Giants have restructured the contract of guard Kevin Zeitler, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The revised contract should give the Giants some much-needed flexibility with the anticipated signing of two first-round picks on the horizon. The tweaked contract will convert $7.5M of Zeitler’s $10M salary for 2019 into a signing bonus. By doing that, the G-Men have freed up $5M in cap room for the upcoming season. Beyond that, Zeitler is signed through 2021 with...

Kentucky EDGE Josh Allen bet on himself and is now one of the best players in the draft

It’s unlikely that Kentucky EDGE Josh Allen will be available for the Giants, but we can dream

It is a measure of just how loaded the 2019 Draft is along the defensive front that any one of the top prospects would likely be a consensus number one selection in almost any other year.

One of those players is also a lesson on the importance of patience, work ethic, and player development.

Kentucky’s Josh Allen was considered a solid prospect for the 2018 draft and would have been one of...

Giants restructure guard Kevin Zeitler’s contract

New York clears $5 million in cap space ahead of the draft

The New York Giants, in need of some cap space ahead of this weekend’s NFL draft, turned to newly acquired guard Kevin Zeitler, who had a $10 million cap hit scheduled for this year, for some help.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Giants converted $7.5 million of Zeitler’s $10 million base salary into a prorated signing bonus. The move lowers Zeitler’s 2019 base salary to $2.5 million with a $2.5 million of his now...

We finish with the one QB most unlikely to be available to the Giants

The pre-draft series on the quarterback position concludes at the top of the board, with a look at Kyler Murray. The Heisman Trophy winner might not be available past the first selection, but should he fall to a spot where the New York Giants are on the clock, what would - or could - they be getting in this quarterback prospect?

In addition, since this is the final piece in the series, we will recap the 10 quarterbacks...

Scouting the quarterbacks: What kind of NFL prospect is Dwayne Haskins?

We have reached Draft Week here in the football world, and at Big Blue View we are nearing the top of the quarterback board. Dwayne Haskins is a player previously discussed as a fit for the New York Giants, and if he is available for the Giants at the sixth spot, he would be perhaps an ideal fit for their offense and their future.

Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Why the Giants should draft Dwayne Haskins as Eli Manning's successor | ESPN

Haskins father wants him to be a Giant.

“I know if Dwayne is chosen to play for the Giants,” Dwayne Sr. said last week, “he’d be an ambassador. ... With his persona and professionalism, I do see him one day playing for the Giants. He reminds me so much of Phil Simms with his leadership, determination, poise, and with his great...

The 2019 Big Blue View community mock draft went a long way to improving the Giants’ offensive and defensive lines.

After two days of polling and drafting, the 2019 Big Blue Draft-A-Thon is finally over.

In this year’s take on our annual community mock draft, we turned the New York Giants’ draft over to the fans, using The Draft Network’s draft simulator. Posting a poll for each of the Giants’ 12 picks (save their back-to-back picks in the fifth round, which were done with one...

Dave Gettleman's plan remains biggest mystery of the draft

Many careers will be shaped by what transpires at the 2019 NFL Draft. Going into it, no one’s destiny seems more immediately on the line than that of New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman. Embattled would be a generous description for Gettleman’s status with media and fans, who constantly buffet both he and the organization for reasons as to why he enjoys solid job security. Apparently the criticism has touched a nerve, judging by some rather defensive answers he gave during an...

The Giants double back to the offensive line with Ohio State OT Isaiah Prince before making their final selection

With the second to last pick, the Big Blue View community decided to address the New York Giants offensive line one more time by selecting OT Isaiah Prince out of Ohio State with the 232nd overall pick.

Prince is a long tackle at 6-foot 6 inches and with 35 1?2 inch arms, as well as plenty of experience blocking at Ohio State. He is not a natural knee bender and might always...

2019 Big Blue Draft-A-Thon: Giants selects LSU TE Foster Moreau 180th overall

The Giants settle in for a long wait until the end of the 7th round after selecting LSU TE Foster Moreau in the sixth

In the sixth round of the 2019 Big Blue Draft-A-Thon, the New York Giants (fans) have selected Foster Moreau (TE, LSU) with the 180th overall pick

Foster Moreau could wind up being a downright steal in the sixth round. Mostly relegated to blocking duties in the LSU offense, he brings upside in that area to the Giants, but he is also a very athletic tight end who could be...

Giants select Kentucky S Mike Edwards to help reinforce their secondary.

With the 171st pick in the 2019 Big Blue Draft-A-Thon, the Big Blue View community selected Mike Edwards (S, Kentucky) for the New York Giants to end the fifth round.

Edwards presents a nice value this late in the draft. A blue collar “Do It All” safety, Edwards was the heart of a good Kentucky secondary. He isn’t an elite athlete, but he has the versatility and experience to do just about whatever the Giants...

2019 Big Blue Draft - A - Thon: Giants select Miami EDGE Joe Jackson at 132, get back-to-back picks to start the fifth

The Giants find an EDGE with Miami’s Joe Jackson before getting two picks to start the fifth

Big Blue View selected Joe Jackson (EDGE, Miami) for the New York Giants with the 132nd selection in the fourth round.

Jackson is an intriguing player and could become a value at this point in the draft. He was productive for Miami, but didn’t take the anticipated step forward after adding weight for his final year in college. If he is able to either go back down to his more productive weight or...
