ESPN insider Mel Kiper is changing his mind for who the Giants will select with their No. 2 overall pick come April.

Instead of going with a quarterback, Kiper has the Giants taking Penn State RB Saquon Barkley with their top pick. He previously had UCLA QB Josh Rosen as his favorite, but he thinks New York can't pass up on bringing in Barkley's talent to work alonside the likes of Odell Beckham Jr. and the rest of the Giants stellar receiving crew.

Giants may not draft a QB 00:02:41
The Daily News Live crew discusses Dave Gettleman's comment that the Giants may not select a quarterback with their first-round pick.

Giants GM Dave Gettleman has certainly been preparing for what he wants to do with the No. 2 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, and many believe taking a quarterback for the team's future is the right move to make. But what if he's leaning toward another option? 

There are two other options he can decide to choose other than taking a quarterback: Draft a different player at No. 2, or trade down to acquire more picks. And, according to SI's Peter King, that is exactly what some think he will do. 

King has the Giants looking at Wyoming QB Josh Allen, but there are other needs for next season. If Eli Manning is the guy for now, King doesn't doubt Gettleman skipping out on this top-heavy quarterback class.

Hall of Famer Kurt Warner empathizes how difficult it is for the Giants' Eli Manning to be an aging quarterback who is likely to spend what could be his final seasons grooming a team's franchise quarterback of the future.

"The part about mentoring someone, that part is easy," Warner said, according to the New York Daily News' Gary Myers. "It's easy to take a young kid and share with him whatever you possibly can and to make him the best player possible. The hard part is when you feel like you're the better quarterback and you're not on the field. You don't take that out on the other guy, but that's a tough sell."

The 37-year-old Manning has been the Giants' franchise quarterback since taking over in 2004, but New York may be in a position to draft his heir with the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft this spring. The Giants also drafted Davis Webb, who some believe could be the team's quarterback of the future, in the third round last year. 

That leaves Manning, the two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback who has started 214 of the Giants' last 215 games, nearing the end of his time as franchise quarterback, a feeling with which Warner resonates.

When the Giants drafted Davis Webb in the third round last spring, they believed there was a chance he'd be their Quarterback of the Future.

Now, thanks to how the Giants handled him last season, it's hard to see how that's still possible at all.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: Pat Shurmur told the Giants that he believes he can win with Eli Manning as his quarterback, which is exactly what his soon-to-be new bosses wanted to hear. They don't believe Manning is finished. They also don't know who'll replace him when he is.

So the only thing that makes sense -- the only thing that ever made sense -- is for Manning to return as the Giants' starting quarterback in 2018. And if GM Dave Gettleman puts the right team around him -- and the right offensive line in front of him -- there's absolutely no reason to think that the 37-year-old Manning can't win.

That, of course, is exactly what the Giants plan to do, according to multiple sources familiar with the plan. The Giants will build around Manning in the short-term - as Gettleman confirmed to reporters at the Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala. on Wednesday afternoon. At the same time, the Giants will groom his successor for the long-term. And whether that successor is Davis Webb, their third-round pick from a year ago, or a quarterback they take with the No. 2 pick in the draft, that's still to be determined...

The Giants select UCLA's QB Josh Rosen with the No. 2 overall pick in Bleacher Report's latest 2018 NFL mock draft. 

Bleacher Report sees the Giants' need at the quarterback position as the first thing new GM Dave Gettleman addresses. With USC's Sam Darnold going to the Browns, Gettleman will jump on Rosen. 

However, this pick is made with Gettleman looking toward the future. There is still the case where Eli Manning and Davis Webb could be enough in his eyes.

THE GAME

The Giants (2-13) vs. the Washington Redskins (7-8) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey,, on Sunday, Dec. 31, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

As if anyone needed a reason to stay home, it'll be 19 degrees (that's the high) with 15 mph winds (that's not even the gusts), so it will feel much colder. It'll feel really cold when the wind starts whipping around what surely will be one of the emptiest stadiums the Giants have ever experienced. It'll be much warmer in your living room, trust me.

WHAT IT MEANS

For the sentimental folks, there's at least a chance that this will be Eli Manning's final start for the Giants -- though the hiring of Dave Gettleman as GM likely means Manning will at least be given the option for more next year. For the futurists, this game is all about the 2018 draft. If the Giants lose, they lock up the No. 2 pick and will be in perfect position to grab Manning's eventual replacement. For everyone else, as far as the Giants are concerned, it means nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Dave Gettleman will begin his first full day as the Giants general manager on Friday, and he won't need anyone to show him around the office. He also won't need an update on the Giants' many problems.

He already knows.

The big question, though, is this: How is he going to fix this mess? How is he going to restore the Giants to what they were when he left in 2012.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Davis Webb, the Giants rookie quarterback, is finally getting a promotion.

Webb, the Giants' third-round pick out of Cal, is being prepped to be the No. 2 quarterback this week, which means he'll be activated for his first NFL game on Sunday when the Giants play host to the Washington Redskins, interim coach Steve Spagnuolo said. After spending all season as the third-string quarterback, Davis leap-frogged Geno Smith and practiced with the second-string on Wednesday.

Eli Manning is still slated to be the Giants' starter on Sunday. But the possibility now exists that Webb will get into the game.

It's really simple for the Giants: Draft a quarterback, and focus on the future of the franchise with the aging Eli Manning about to walk off into the sunset. How much easier could it be when you have the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, right? 

That appears to be the mindset of almost every expert and fan looking at the Giants in next year's draft after this horrendous season. The Browns are almost a lock to pick a quarterback, and the Giants should follow suit with USC QB Sam Darnold and UCLA QB Josh Rosen headlining the top prospects next season. 

But this Christmas I have someone else on my wish list, someone I believe the Giants would be a fool to pass up next April: Penn State RB Saquon Barkley

Giants quarterback Eli Manning will start in New York's season finale against the Washington Redskins next Sunday, interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo said after Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

A week after throwing for 434 yards and three touchdowns, Manning, 36, completed 27 of 45 passes for 263 yards, two interceptions and one lost fumble as the Giants fell to 2-13.

For much of 2017 Davis Webb has unquestionably been the Giants' third-string quarterback, with thoughts of him moving up the depth chart intensifying over recent weeks.

As such, Webb has worked closest with receivers who have dangled between the practice squad and the bottom of the active roster. Those players that he's been around most, speak highly of the rookie quarterback. 

"He's a fun guy to work with," Marquis Bundy told Dan Duggan of NJ.com. "He's a guy that likes to always keep getting better and elevate his game every day. He comes in and gives everybody that extra energy to continue to be good in practice. Right now, we're only just practicing, so he really does take practice seriously. His seriousness radiates into us and then we become serious and it becomes a good practice overall."

With the Giants embroiled in a disappointing season, many are beginning to shift their gaze to the future. Davis Webb has been a constant topic of conversation after the Giants used a third-round pick on the rookie.

Interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo assured the media that he's not ducking questions about Webb, but that the organization is taking it day-by-day. 

"I'm not trying to avoid [it]," Spagnuolo said...

Giants S Landon Collins has so much faith in rookie QB Davis Webb that he doesn't want the team to select a QB with their top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

"Don't draft him," Collins told the NY Post when asked about potentially drafting a franchise-level QB next spring. "Don't do it. Davis is gonna be really good in the league when it's his time, I promise you."

The same day the rookie QB took snaps with the first-team offense, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also said he believes the heir apparent to Eli Manning doesn't reside in next year's draft, but rather in their own clubhouse.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants finally took the first small steps towards getting rookie Davis Webb ready to play in a game this season.

Of course, it may already be a little too late.

Webb, a third-round pick out of Cal, got his first practice snaps with the Giants' first-team offense on Wednesday since way back in training camp in August.

If the Giants had any thoughts about starting rookie Davis Webb on Christmas Eve in Arizona, they definitely don't have any now.

Eli Manning slammed that door shut with an impressive performance against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo reiterated Monday that the team has no plans to change their depth chart.

Manning completed 37 of 57 passes for 434 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. It could've been more if his receivers didn't have their usual problem with drops...

Davis Webb will remain the Giants' third-string quarterback this week, and he likely won't be activated on Sunday afternoon.

But one week from Sunday - on Christmas Eve - it's possible all that may change.

Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo opened the door on Wednesday for the 22-year old Webb to make his first career start on Dec. 24 in Arizona. He made no promises, of course, and it's possible it hasn't even been discussed among the coaching staff and decision-makers yet.

They need to take a look at rookie quarterback Davis Webb.

Just one week after ex-coach Ben McAdoo benched Manning in favor of Geno Smith while simultaneously opening up the possibility of Webb receiving playing time to see what the club had in the rookie from Cal.

After McAdoo's firing on Monday, interim coach Steve Spagnuolo reversed course and reinstated Manning as the Giants' top QB with Smith sliding into the backup role once again.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants are doing their best to undo the mess they've created, by giving Eli Manning his starting job back. It's the right thing to do, and the only way to really quell the mob building at their gates.

But what ever happened to their grand plan to take a look at their younger quarterbacks? Is that suddenly just not important anymore?

That's a reminder of just how badly the Giants continue to bungle the whole Manning Mess, and just how lost and dysfunctional this franchise has become. A week ago their season was lost, they were eying a Top 3 draft pick, and they were insistent -- from ownership on down -- that it was time to take a look at the young quarterbacks on their team...

Back to normal for Giants? 00:03:16
The DNL panel discusses how the Giants might choose to move forward after the dismissals of Jerry Reese and Ben McAdoo.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: After his streak of 210 consecutive starts at quarterback for the Giants was snapped on Sunday, Eli Manning's streak of consecutive games as the Giants backup quarterback will end at one.

Manning has been given his old starting job back by interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo in the wake of the firing of head coach Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese -- a development that had been expected since Monday

Manning said on Monday that part of him was "taken away" when he was benched, and that he had told Spagnuolo that he wanted to start this Sunday.

GEICO SportsNite: Eli's future 00:03:29
Taylor Rooks, Pat Leonard recap Monday's developments including the firing of Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese and wonder what's in store for Eli.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he has no hard feelings toward former head coach Ben McAdoo or GM Jerry Reese after the franchise's co-owners, John Mara and Steve Tisch, fired them Monday morning amid New York's 2-10 start to the season.

Manning told WFAN's Mike Francesa that he was "surprised and shocked" by McAdoo's decision to bench him last week in favor of Geno Smith for Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders, but said given the Giants had lost nine of the first 11 games of the season, "You've got to be willing to accept the consequences of that."

When asked his thoughts on the Giants' decision to clean house, Manning said that was not something he thought about.

"I'm not happy about Jerry Reese getting fired or Ben McAdoo getting fired," said Manning, who credited Reese for helping build the rosters that led the Giants to two Super Bowls and McAdoo for revitalizing New York's offense. "That wasn't what I wanted."

Geno Smith wasn't terrible in his first start with the Giants and his first extended action in more than two years. Even Giants head coach Ben McAdoo seemed pleased with Smith's performance.

Just not enough to guarantee Smith another start next week.

QB Davis Webb is inactive for the Giants on Sunday, making Eli Manning the only backup for starting QB Geno Smith.  

Earlier in the week, McAdoo said he was not willing to answer whether he would have three quarterbacks available.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants blew the benching of Eli Manning, and they absolutely know it. It was clumsy, undignified, and made the entire organization look small. Unfortunately for everyone, there's nothing they can do about that now. The damage to the franchise is already done.

But there is one way they can salvage something out of this calamity.

They can give Eli Manning one last start.

Ben McAdoo spoke to the media three times since he benched Eli Manning. John Mara spoke once. Jerry Reese, of course, didn't speak at all.

Mara and McAdoo used a lot of words, too. It's just hard to make sense of most of them.

In fact, there are so many unanswered questions from this hard-to-understand, completely botched, undignified quarterback switch from Manning to Geno Smith, it's really hard to know where to start.

Big Blue is in a Giant mess 00:01:00
SNY.tv looks back at some of the worst moments of the Ben McAdoo era as head coach of the Giants.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - As bad as this week has been for the Giants, there's the potential of something even more awkward, more undignified happening on Sunday in Oakland. Just imagine if Geno Smith gets hurt against the Raiders -- or worse, he's a disaster early in the game.

Wouldn't it be just a little awkward if Ben McAdoo has to tap Eli Manning on the shoulder and ask his now-backup, former franchise quarterback to go into the game?

"Eli's a pro," McAdoo said. "He'll be ready to go if his number is called."

McAdoo, Giants on Eli benching 00:01:26
Giants head coach Ben McAdoo, LB Mark Herzlich, WR Sterling Shepard, and safety Landon Collins discuss the benching of Eli Manning.

One day after announcing that Eli Manning would sit in favor of Geno Smith and ultimately Davis Webb, head coach Ben McAdoo defended in the decision while speaking with reporters on Wednesday.

"It's obviously emotional. A lot of reactions out there," McAdoo said. "I get the reactions and I understand the emotions. I understand the responses. It's been a tough couple days. We feel we have to put our emotions aside and make the best decision for the New York Football Giants and I'm at peace with the decision."
