New York Giants news, 12/21 – Where does a win against Washington land the Giants in the draft board?

Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!

Entering a lose-lose situation is never ideal, especially when it could cost you a chance at a generational pass-rusher. The New York Giants are in this exact predicament, as they will face off against the Washington Redskins on Sunday in a game that could spell the capturing of Young or the loss of a game-changing player.

NFL Draft current rankings (top 4):

  1. Bengals
  2. Giants
  3. Dolphins
  4. Redskins

Currently, the Giants would have the 2nd overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, but if they win, they could plummet as far as the 5th pick, if the Detroit Tigers and Miami Dolphins claw out wins. The only team in front of the Giants is the Cincinnati Bengals, who own a 1-13 record. The bottom four teams in the draft order are playing each other this week, as the Dolphins will play the Bengals. Depending on who wins, the entire bottom four could be shuffled around, except for the Bengals, who own the first overall pick with a two-game lead.

Realistically, if the New York Giants pull out a victory against Washington, they would move up at least one spot, which would take them of Young Terrotiry and force them into deciding on an offensive tackle or OLB, Isaiah Simmons.

In a perfect world, Daniel Jones would have a five-touchdown performance, further proving he can be the future at quarterback, and the Giants’ defense would crumble due to the cold air and let the Redskins run all over them. But it would be planned all along, and we wouldn’t have to worry about the deficiencies of the defense even more so than we already do.
