If the Giants hope to have a quarter of the future in the NFL draft, at least one current NFL coach thinks it would be wiser to pick one of the top players in last year's draft.
Josh Rosen, chosen No. 10 last year by the Cardinals of Arizona.
"It would be the best, in my mind," said the coach at NJ Advance Media, under the guise of anonymity, to the question of where would Rosen rank in relation to the new class of quarterback.
Rosen could be available after a disappointing rookie campaign in which he completed only 55.2% of his passes for 2,278 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 steals. To be honest, he was playing behind the worst offensive line in the league.
The anemic coach Steve Wilks was sacked after just one season and replaced by Kliff Kingsbury, an inexperienced university coach as an NFL coach. Kingsbury could now look at Kyler Murray with the first choice.
Despite the adversity of Rosen as a rookie, the coach was still impressed by what he had seen.
"He is polite," said the coach. "He stayed healthy while he was being killed. He is a natural passer and he is athletic.
Rosen has an advantage over players like Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State), Murray, Drew Lock (Missouri), Daniel Jones (Duke) and other players, in that he already has a year's worth. 39, experience in the NFL and that he could potentially be ready to intervene at any given time. in 2019, if the giants stumble out of the door … again.
According to several reports, the Giants, the Patriots and the Chargers have expressed their interest in the acquisition of Rosen. A team would have offered a second round pick.
Negotiating for Rosen would allow Giants general manager Dave Gettleman to replicate the Kansas City Chiefs' pattern of training a young quarterback behind a veteran while freeing choice # 6 for the best player available.
