SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano and SNY NFL Draft Expert Rich Cirminiello discussed who the Giants will select 2nd overall in the NFL Draft next Thursday.
The question all along, according to Vacchiano, has been whether the Giants will tab their next franchise quarterback or Penn State RB Saquon Barkley.
"If the Browns go with Sam Darnold, which I expect to happen, I don't think the Giants take a quarterback," said Cirminiello, adding that at that point, the Giants should take the best player available -- which is Barkley.
"I think he's a difference maker on all three levels," Cirminiello said. "He can run, he can catch out of the backfield, he can contribute to special teams if you want. And oh by the way, a phenomenal member of the community. I think he's a perfect Giant at No. 2."
If the Giants go a different route, Cirminiello believes it would be wise to trade back -- perhaps to the Broncos at No. 5 -- and snag Notre Dame OL Quenton Nelson, who Cirminiello sees as a future Hall-of-Famer.
