Former Jets QB and current SNY analyst Ray Lucas is pretty firm on who he thinks Giants GM Dave Gettleman should select with the second pick in the Draft on Thursday night.
"He's been funny in the papers, joking around and stuff -- it's a very important pick," Lucas said about Gettleman on Sunday night on SNY. "And if he doesn't take Saquon Barkley, somebody should get him drug tested."
Barkley, 21, is viewed by most as the best player in the Draft, and Gettleman didn't try to hide his feelings about him when speaking at his pre-Draft press conference last week.
"I'm not going to lie. He's a tremendous talent," Gettleman said. "You put the film on of a defensive guy and if they're playing Penn State, then I'm watching Saquon. He's one of those guys that my mother could have scouted. She could have figured that one out."
Gettleman added that he didn't buy in to the notion that selecting a running back as high as No. 2 was too high.
"If you have a great running back, he immediately makes your quarterback better, your offensive line better and your passing game (better)," he said. "So I don't believe in it. It's how you evaluate the players, how we value them, how we rate them and then you go on from there."
Along with Barkley, the Giants are reportedly considering selecting one of the top quarterbacks in the Draft, or going with NC State DE Bradley Chubb or Notre Dame OL Quenton Nelson -- though Chubb or Nelson may be the pick only if the Giants trade back.
