The Combine has reshuffled draft boards and free agency has yet to (officially) shuffle team needs.But some things haven’t changed. In his latest mock draft for ESPN, Todd McShay still gives the New York Giants their quarterback for the future (they would hope), and despite Kyler Murray’s rise, it is a familiar face.Raptor’s Thoughts: McShay’s right, it does make sense. I’m still not convinced it even has a chance of happening, but it makes sense in a mock draft where we apply positional value and control variables by not allowing trades. But here’s the wild card: Dave Gettleman has said on the record after bypassing quarterback in 2018 that he believes the notion of positional value is a “crock.” If Gettleman has shown one thing in his time as a general manager between the Carolina Panthers and Giants, it’s that he believes in his board above all else. He has painted himself into something of a corner by bypassing the quarterback position to take Saquon Barkley, and in doing so enters what should be Eli Manning’s final year without a quarterback for 2020 (or beyond). So, going by that, the Giants pretty much have to take Haskins if he is available. However Jon Halapio Color Rush Jersey , Gettleman is a GM who believes in his beliefs, and at the foundation of those beliefs is that you win by “running the ball and playing great defense.” So, if a player like Josh Allen slips out of the top 5, or Montez Sweat or Brian Burns have worked their way past Haskins and into the top 5 of Gettleman’s board, history suggests that he will punt on quarterback again. That’s leaving aside the very real possibility that a team doesn’t trade up for Haskins if Murray goes first overall. For instance, while the Jacksonville Jaguars are, apparently, working to sign Nick Foles, but they could want their own “heir/successor” plan — or simply don’t feel completely comfortable putting all their eggs in Nick Foles’ basket. There’s also the matter of their own dire cap situation, and trading on their expensive defensive talent could be how they free some of that money up while getting some return.So while Haskins would probably be a good, smart pick, it might not happen. Giants’ fans should at least consider the possibility that he won’t be there to be picked Kerry Wynn Color Rush Jersey , and might not even be the pick if he is available.

In draft classes like that, it can be easy for good players who don’t have eye-popping measurables or flashy games to get lost in the shuffle. But that might create opportunities for teams to find players at good value if they have a solid evaluation and a plan to put those more under-the-radar prospects in position to succeed. Take Boston College’s Zach Allen for instance. There are few players in the draft who are more productive or better at disrupting an offense, but he is not being talked about as an elite, first round prospect. Part of that is due to a game predicated on hustle, but also some athletic limitations leave scouts wondering about his role in the NFL. But given the “multiple” nature of the New York Giants defense, he might just be a natural fit in James Bettcher’s scheme.MeasurablesProsGood size and length.Powerful player, able to stack blockers and drive them into the backfield.Heavy Will Hernandez Color Rush Jersey , aggressive hands.

ConsLacks lower-body flexibility to consistently bend the edge.Good but not great first step, occasionally gets caught guessing.High motor player, but range is limited.Prospect VideoWhat They’re Saying - Jon Ledyard (The Draft Network - Scouting Report)Does He Fit The Giants?Allen does fit the Giants’ defense, but he is something of a projection there as a prospect.The Giants run a “multiple” defense that is primarily a 1-gap front -- that is, front seven players are generally only responsible for a single gap, and that is what Allen projects to best. However, Boston College’s defense is generally a 4-3 front, with Allen playing the 7-technique defensive end. For the Giants he would be a 5-technique who would move inside on nickel downs. While Allen does project well to that kind of alignment, and his tight hips and ankles would likely limit him as a 4-3 defensive end, it would be a new position. But he should be able to make the transition fairly seamlessly. Allen has a good first step to go with plenty of power to put blockers back on their heels Lorenzo Carter Color Rush Jersey , as well as heavy, active hands to keep offensive linemen from locking in on his chest plate. He doesn’t quite have the play strength to be a two-gapping lineman, dealing with a pair of blockers, but he does have enough strength to make plays while being blocked.Allen has first round production, with 161 tackles, 30.5 tackles for a loss, 10.5 sacks, 10 passes defensed, and a pair of interceptions over the last two seasons, but in a stellar front seven class, he could slip to the second round.
