Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsThe 2019 NFL Draft is officially one week away. Teams are in the final stages of setting their draft boards and top decision makers will spend the upcoming holiday weekend discussing strategy. There have been so many rumors and news nuggets, as well as so, so, much smoke billowing out of the various outlets that it is a bit hard to keep track of everything. So let’s take this opportunity to go back and take a second look at some of the things we might have missed for all the noise.Catching up on Dwayne Haskins Predicting who the Giants will draft at sixth overall is, as Ed has described it, a “crap shoot.” But we do know they at least appear to have done their due dilligence on the 2019 quarterback class. A huge contingent of the Giants’ top brass hit the road to watch Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Will Grier, Drew Lock Womens Oshane Ximines Jersey , and Daniel Jones in person, then bringing them in to their facilities for Top 30 visits. The last of those visits went to Dwayne Haskins, who the Giants hosted for the draft version of a slumber party. The last day of official visits was Wednesday, April 17th, and the Giants’ leadership had dinner with Haskins on the night of the 15th before hosting him in their facilities for his official visit on the 16th. We don’t know how the Giants feel about Haskins, but he is saying all the right things. In a guest appearance on Ian Rapoport’s podcast, Haskins said that he welcomed the opportunity to sit behind Eli Manning, saying “Eli Manning is a legend. I grew up watching Eli and I’d have no problem sitting behind him and learning from him, like how I did with J.T. [Barrett] at Ohio State,” Haskins told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on the RapSheet and Friends podcast. “Whatever team drafts me, I’ll be able to sit back and learn from the guy that’s there and be able to compete with him and push him, but know that a guy’s there because he’s a veteran Authentic Oshane Ximines Jersey , he’s done it before, he’s professional.”That has to appeal to a Giants team which is still all-in on Manning as their best option at quarterback. It also has to appeal to the local media as well. It’s fair to say that if the Giants select Haskins, it will be the Football Gods’ gift to the NYC back pages. A “local boy made good,” who went to the Giants’ youth camps after the team beat the 18-0 New England Patriots, getting to live out his dream by quarterbacking the team he grew up loving? The human-interest stories practically write themselves. Reverse draftIn a nice shake-up from the endless deluge of mock drafts that make up most of our media diet this time of year, Spencer Hall put together a “Reverse Mock Draft” over on the SB Nation main page. Essentially, it looks at the top prospects as though they were free agents who could sign wherever they wanted. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he pairs Haskins and the Giants as an “ideal” match. I would definitely encourage everyone to check out the whole piece. It’s a nice change of pace and an entertaining read.Quinnen Williams? Well, the Giants can dream, can’t they?Haskins wasn’t the only last-minute Top - 30 visit for the Giants. A day after the Giants hosted Haskins, they had Alabama defensive lineman Quinnen Williams in for a visit. Quinnen Williams (as opposed to Alabama offensive tackle Jonah Williams) isn’t likely to fall to the Giants at sixth overall. He is widely regarded as one of the three best players in the draft, and commonly called the best player in the draft. But it is within the realm of possibility Oshane Ximines Jersey Boys , and he is the one player we can say unequivocally that Dave Gettleman would draft regardless of who else is on the board.Gettleman’s draft tendenciesThere’s a reason why I say that the Giants would select Williams over any other player in this draft: Dave Gettleman loves him some defensive tackles. In a piece for The Ringer, looking at some of the biggest draft tendencies in the NFL, Robert Mays identifies the defensive line, and defensive tackle position in particular, as the apple of Gettleman’s eye. That Gettleman loves defensive linemen shouldn’t be much of a surprise as it is a trait he shares with Jerry Reese (who drafted either an offensive lineman, defensive lineman, or both in the first three rounds of eight of his eleven drafts) and both of them learned under Ernie Accorsi. The Giants offense didn’t gain many yards in the first half, but they were able to avoid turnovers.That hasn’t been the case in the second half. Eli Manning lost the ball while being sacked by Kamalei Correa in the third quarter and Jurrell Casey fell on the ball to give the Titans possession on the Giants’ 14-yard-line. The Giants defense held twice after Derrick Henry ran the ball to lip of the end zone, but a facemask penalty by Josh Mauro gave Tennessee new life.Henry took advantage with his second rushing touchdown of the afternoon and the Titans now lead 14-0 with just over two minutes left in the third. Henry is up to 151 rushing yards and has scored the last six touchdowns for Tennessee.Manning’s fumble was his second turnover of the day and it’s been a miserable one for the veteran quarterback. Manning is 12-of-27 for 154 yards and has been sacked three times while playing without both Odell Beckham and any support from the running game.
