.. and swirling ... and swirling that the New York Giants could be a landing spot for quarterback Josh Rosen if and when the Arizona Cardinals draft Kyler Murray and make their 2018 first-round pick available.One of the questions that keeps popping up in the Big Blue View inbox is where Rosen Darius Slayton Jersey Draft , the 10th overall pick and fourth quarterback selected a year ago, would rank if he were in the current quarterback draft class.I put the question to a trio of highly-regarded draft analysts, and the unanimous opinion was that Rosen would be the No. 1 ranked quarterback in this class. Yes, above Murray — the guy who seems likely to usurp him in Arizona — and Dwayne Haskins.Our own Mark Schofield told me he would “have him [Rosen] just over Murray and then Haskins.”Scott Wright of Draft Countdown told me that Rose “would be No. 1 in this class.” For some perspective, Wright had Rosen No. 2 in last year’s class behind only Sam Darnold.Dane Brugler of The Athletic would have Rosen “at the top based only on tape.” [Brugler’s complete QB rankings — subscription only]Pro Football Focus has only Murray ranked ahead of Rosen in this class. Here is the view from Bucky Brooks and Curtis Conway of NFL.com.We have speculated about Rosen’s viability as the heir apparent to Eli Manning and the potential price tag to acquire him. The Giants might not be willing to give up the 17th pick to acquire Rosen Darius Slayton NFL Jersey , but if the price is the 37th overall pick and perhaps an addition Day 3 pick it would have to be a consideration. As we have said before, that would allow the Giants to use their first-round picks (Nos. 6 and 17) on potential impact players, as well as getting a young quarterback. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have an X-Man, hopefully with the power of a pass rush.The Giants addressed their need for an edge rusher Darius Slayton NFL Draft , taking defensive end Oshane Ximines of Old Dominion late in the third round Friday.A four-year starter and the first player to be drafted at his school, Ximines had 58 tackles this season, including 18 1/2 for losses. The defensive end had 12 sacks last season, finishing his career with 33. He had 11 forced fumbles in his career.“As we all get to know ‘X-Man’ better, you are going to see why we picked him Darius Slayton Buffalo Bills Jersey ,” coach Pat Shurmur said.General manager Dave Gettleman said Ximines had second-round value and the Giants started focusing on him as a potential pick roughly 14 or 15 picks before taking him with the 95th pick overall.Ximines, who grew up in North Carolina, said his parents were from New York City and they were rooting for him to be drafted by the Giants.“I figured the NFL was a possibility by my junior year,” Ximines said in a conference call. “They just started reaching out to me and it started to become a reality for me. I just tried to work as hard as possible.”While Ximines did not play in a top-level conference, Gettleman said he had the ability to start for teams in the ACC.He also said he was unique in that he has to ability to make counter moves against an offensive lineman Youth Michael Strahan Jerseys , something college players usually have to learn after they get to the NFL.Defensive linemen from small schools have excelled with the Giants. Hall of Famer Michael Strahan was from Texas Southern and Osi Umenyiora played at Troy.The Giants had three picks in the first round on Thursday. They took quarterback Daniel Jones of Duke at sixth overall, Clemson tackle Dexter Lawrence at No. 17 and Georgia cornerback Deandre Baker at No 30 after a late trade with Seattle.They waited 65 picks on Friday before taking Ximines.“I said it last night, we need pass rush help,” Gettleman said. “We feel we’ve addressed it. We got inside pass rusher help (Lawrence) and we got outside pass rush help.”The Giants will have six picks in the final four rounds on Saturday. They still need help at safety and linebacker as well as a wide receiver who can go deep.“The draft, it’s a full draft Michael Strahan Jerseys Stitched ,” Gettleman said. “There are guys in the fourth and fifth rounds that we really like and we still have third-round guys available.”
