2018 NFC East Draft Preview: Philadelphia Eagles — can the rich get richer?

The defending champs don’t really need a lot of help The 2018 NFL Draft is fast approaching. A lot of time has been spent wondering and analyzing what the New York Giants will do with the second overall pick — rightly so. Another important aspect of the draft will be how the other NFC East teams will approach the event. The Giants were last in the division during 2017 and by a significant margin. The three other teams each had at least seven wins and one of them won that important last game of the season that’s typically a pretty big deal. We’ll finish up with the world champion...

2018 NFL Draft prospect profile: Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State

Could this one year wonder go from playing on a blue field to playing for Big Blue? The New York Giants need to improve their linebacking corps. They have needed to for some time, but as the team transitions to a more linebacker-driven defensive scheme, the need has only increases. The team hasn’t spent a high-round pick on a linebacker since drafting Clint Sintim in the second round of the 2009 draft. The combination of need and a good crop of linebackers could mean that this is the draft in which the Giants (finally) address the need with a premium pick. Boise State’s Leighton...

A dozen teams will be waiting to see what the Giants’ GM does on Thursday night The first rule of roster building Decades ago, when my interest in football first moved beyond my role as an on-field participant (I ended my career as a high school center) to the broader aspects of the game, the first rule of roster-building that I learned was: An NFL team constructs its roster to win its division.

Are the Giants taking Saquon Barkley at No. 2, or is it a smokescreen?

The Giants could swing the top of the draft with their decision at No. 2. The top ten picks of the 2018 NFL Draft could feature as many as four quarterbacks selected, and the New York Giants might be one of the keys to how that shakes up. Eli Manning is nearing the end of his career, and the Giants make sense as an option to draft a quarterback No. 2. Of late though, rumors have been swirling that the team might draft Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. Todd McShay said earlier this week that it was inevitable. He thinks Sam Darnold is the only quarterback they would consider at No. 2....

2018 NFL Draft prospect profile: Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas

Is Jefferson the mid-round help at linebacker the Giants have been looking for? One of the first big moves the New York Giants made this offseason was to acquire linebacker Alec Ogletree from the Los Angeles Rams to add to their linebacking corps. The position has grown in importance since hiring new defensive coordinator James Bettcher and moving to more of a 3-4 base defense. The expectation is that Ogletree and second year player B.J. Goodson will be the two starting inside linebackers. However, Dave Gettleman has done a significant amount of work turning over the roster he inherited...
