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.
"I could see Gettleman and the Giants ownership being too sentimental with Eli manning and not making the move to replace him," Matt Miller writes. "But Manning isn't Tom Brady, and the Giants must start thinking ahead. Still, it wouldn't surprise me if the Giants roll with Manning and 2017 third-rounder Davis Webb at quarterback.
"Rosen should be the pick here. He has the prettiest mechanics and accuracy of any quarterback in this class. Sure, he's a little brash, but he's also a leader and a natural passer with the highest floor of all this year's signal-callers."
Rosen posted his best numbers as a Bruin this season, throwing for 3,717 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. He also notched a career high in completion percentage (62.5 percent) and passing efficiency rating (146.3).
The main problem surrounding Rosen is reported character issues, and how he may not have the same passion for the game as the other quarterback prospects in the class. However, he is known as a leader and many see the Giants taking him with their high draft pick, including the New York Post and ESPN's Todd McShay.
