New York Giants
Why would they make the trade? The Giants still don’t have a plan in place for life after Eli Manning, and Kyle Lauletta‘s mediocre performance in a small sample size doesn’t inspire much confidence. So where do they go? They very well could target Dwayne Haskins if Kyler Murray were to be picked by the Cardinals, but that may take a trade up. Instead, they could target Rosen for a cheaper price than it would take to trade up.
While Manning is set to be the 2019 starter, Rosen could challenge for the starting job from the getgo. Rosen would bring a much-needed boost of youth and talent to the Giants quarterback room and would likely be the starter come 2020. Long story short, he would be their future at the position.
Why wouldn’t they make the trade? Dave Gettleman continues to state that the 38-year-old Eli Manning is their guy for the foreseeable future. While that may not be the truth, holding two picks in the first round is. If the Giants want a young quarterback, they could either stand pat at No. 6 and potentially see Dwayne Haskins fall to their laps, trade up, or wait for next years pick.
What are their trade assets looking like? In the first four rounds of the ’19 draft, the Giants hold the 6th, 17th, 37th, 96th, 109th, and 133rd picks. As their recent trades indicate, everybody, except Saquon Barkley, on the Giants roster is available.
