New York Giants’ dream scenario in the NFL Draft detailed by Daniel Jeremiah

The New York Giants have numerous avenues they can travel down in the NFL Draft. One of them involves Isaiah Simmons with the 4th overall pick, another lands them a top tackle prospect, and the third is what some are considering a dream scenario.

The best-case scenario for the Giants involves a trade back that lands them more than just one quality player — it hands them a second-round pick in the process by only moving back a few spots, allowing them to draft a premium talent as well.

Ultimately, Tua Tagovailoa represents the best opportunity for the Giants to move back 1/2 spots in the draft with the Miami Dolphins or the Los Angeles Chargers. Tua being 100% healthy makes him a top-five pick, and if the Washington Redskins are keen on drafting another passer, the flood gates could be open if Miami and Los Angeles want to land one of the better options.

If Joe Burrow and Tagovailoa are off the board, the 3/4 picks become extremely valuable, and it also makes the probability of Chase Young sliding to No. 4 more likely.

NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah detailed the “dream scenario” for the New York Giants if Tua is still available at No. 4:

“It makes all the sense in the world (to trade back),” Jeremiah told WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts. ”If Detroit takes (Jeff) Okudah at three and you’re there with Tua on the board at four and teams five and six both covet him, it’s a dream. It’s an absolute dream scenario because you’re going to get free picks and you’re still going to get the player you were going to take. There’s no reason not to do it. In terms of what it would cost? I would try like heck to get their second round pick.”

The Giants can make the easy decision to move back one slot and still land elite Isaiah Simmons out of Clemson, who lit up the NFL Combine with eye-opening numbers.

Not only would they land a defensive playmaker in Simmons, but they would add more quality draft picks in which they can pair and move into the first round to draft a tackle or sit pretty and grab two prospects at the top of the second round. In my opinion, this scenario is ideal for Big Blue, who desperately needs to add talent to the offensive line and defense.

Jeremiah stated that Gettleman was enamored by one tackle prospect in particular:

“Talking to people around the league, they’ve heard Gettleman was very enamored with Tristan Wirfs from Iowa,” Jeremiah said. ”You talk about a freak at 320 pounds, ran a 4.86, jumped 35.5 inches. He’s played on the right side and the left side there at Iowa. That’s been a really good factory for offensive linemen so there in the same boat as the Jets. You could say, ‘man, they need some playmakers on defense’ but when you have a young quarterback, that trumps everything. You’ve got to get better up front.”

New York Giants: Dwayne Haskins Performs During On-Field Workouts At The Combine

On Saturday, the quarterbacks, tight ends, and wide receivers participated in the NFL Combine. Many players helped improve their draft stock by impressing in the on-field workouts.

The quarterbacks got to show off their accuracy and arm strength during the on-field workouts. While the prospects were throwing at the Combine, all eyes were on one quarterback in particular: Dwayne Haskins Jr. from Ohio State University.

Dwayne Haskins Combine Highlights

One thing that scouts and analysts immediately noted for Dwayne Haskins was how quickly the ball zipped out of his hand. He has great arm strength. On top of that, Haskins can make every throw. And he can do it better than every other prospect who threw on Saturday.

To start the on-field throwing drills, the quarterbacks threw slant routes. On these slant routes, Haskins showed off his arm strength. As Daniel Jeremiah noted, you can see the ball jump out of his hand. He completed every pass and put the ball in stride and on the money on every throw during the slants.

During the curl-routes and out-routes drills, Haskins impressed. Dwayne showed great timing anticipation during these drills. His accuracy in the intermediate range was a strength in college, and that seemed no different at the combine.

Dwayne Haskins showed off his deep accuracy on the corner routes. The prospects were struggling with this throw before Haskins took a crack at it. Kurt Warner even said the prospects were completing about 10% of the throws. But once Dwayne Haskins stepped up to throw, that changed. He put every throw right on the money. He had great height on his passes and tremendous accuracy, touch, to go along with perfect timing.

Giants fans everywhere will agree with Daniel Jeremiah: Giants’ super star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. could have corralled the second pass by Haskins. Engram, too. Dwayne Haskins could be the future of the Giants’ franchise come April. The Giants seem to like him.

New York Giants’ offensive coordinator Mike Shula payed extra attention to Dwayne Haskins on Saturday. The team met with Dwayne on Friday night, then continued to scout him on Saturday. According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Shula spent a lot of time chatting with Haskins on the sideline.

…Giants OC Mike Shula did stand and chat with Dwayne Haskins on the sideline during the early portion of today’s throwing session for about 8-10 minutes. Didn’t see that with anyone else. Shula also put Haskins through his initial throws before the WR portion. – Pat Leonard

Haskins was officially weighed and measured on Friday. He stood tall at 6 foot 3 and three eighths and weighed 231 pounds. It is safe to say Haskins is a big guy. Unfortunately for Dwayne Haskins, he is not a fast big guy. He ran a 5.04 40 yard dash at the Combine. He was the slowest quarterback in his group.

A good thing for Dwayne Haskins is that he is more of a thrower than a runner. His slow 40 time will not affect his draft stock at all because it is not important. Haskins will never be asked to run 40 yards straight down the field. He is a strong-armed accurate passer. He plays his best when he has time in the pocket and can scan the field. Dwayne Haskins is an accurate, pro-style quarterback.
