NFL: New York Giants-GM Dave Gettleman Press Conference Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

On Wednesday, the first overall pick was decided by the readers and fans of Baltimore Beatdown! Receiving 612 of the possible 979 votes, quarterback Sam Darnold will join the Cleveland Browns.

First overall voting total: Cleveland Browns

Up next, the New York Giants!

Of course, yesterday, the Giants made a big trade, sending Jason Pierre-Paul to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now, instead of the common pick with a quarterback behind Eli Manning, there’s discussion on other options with the second overall selection.

Possible picks:

1. QB Josh Rosen — Many had Rosen as the obvious pick for second overall. He’s a highly talented quarterback, and cruising behind Eli Manning, a future Hall of Fame quarterback, is a recipe for success.

2. DE Bradley Chubb — The Giants just traded their aging powerhouse edge rusher; they’ll need a new player to fill the void. They’re lined up to select Chubb.

3. RB Saquon Barkley — He’s a premier player. As I mentioned in the previous post, he’s the best back since Adrian Peterson, maybe even LaDanian Tomlinson. If the Giants want another shot at outscoring opponents and balancing their offense, Barkley is their man.

4. OG Quenton Nelson — Most would agree, drafting an offensive guard at second overall is rather high, but with the NFL comparison to Larry Allen, you take a guard at second overall if you’re confident he becomes Larry Allen. Quenton produced strongly next to Ronnie Stanley, and once more alongside Mike McGlinchey. The first sentence of his NFL.com draft profile gives you why he’s such a highly-touted lineman. “Built like a bank safe with wide hips, broad chest and powerful limbs,” — Lance Zierlein

5. QB Josh Allen — Just like I mentioned in the first overall selection article, Allen is a star player physically. A prototypical pocket passer, but needs coaching. Eli Manning and the New York Football Giants can help acclimate Allen to the NFL.
