NFL Draft 2019: Eli Manning expecting Giants to select quarterback

first_imgEli Manning thinks there will soon be a new name on the Giants’ quarterback depth chart.The Giants hold two first-round picks in this month’s draft. Manning, New York’s longtime starter, was asked Monday if he thought the team would take a signal-caller with one of those selections. Russell Wilson free agency rumors: Seahawks think quarterback eventually ‘would like to play elsewhere’ “I have always felt that in the quarterback room I have always had a great relationship with everyone,” Manning said. “All the QBs, we have drafted quarterbacks and have had young quarterbacks in there. I enjoy talking football and enjoy talking ball. Giving tips on coverages, protections, concepts, everyone is trying to help each other.“I have enjoyed putting in the extra effort and the work. Getting everyone comfortable and up to speed. Help young guys trying to learn a new offense.”Manning was inconsistent in 2018 as the Giants missed the playoffs for a second straight year. Co-owner John Mara recently said the team was taking it “one year at time” with the 38-year-old, whose contract is set to expire after next season. “Yes, I can see the Giants getting a young quarterback,” Manning told reporters. “I understand that. I still have to do my job. I will do my part. Same as last year. Go out there, play quarterback, win football games. That is what I am trying to do.”The Giants have reportedly met with multiple quarterbacks leading into the draft, including Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, Missouri’s Drew Lock and Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray.

That is what I am thinking about. I am thinking about right now with this team. Getting rolling, getting wins and doing whatever it takes to be a good teammate to get this team winning football games.”Manning completed 66 percent of his passes and threw for 21 touchdowns, along with 11 interceptions, in 16 games in 2018.last_img read more
