I've been watching too much OL tape. I started watching QB's (won't take long). I'm watching Drew Lock because he was my favorite QB at the senior Bowl. He has a ton of poise in the pocket and he makes sounds decisions while under pressure. Prototypical size and arm strength... He also has good accuracy. Very quick release but still seems to know his progressions.
His stats were down because of his receivers. When u watch him, forget the receptions, just check the ball placement. He needs to work on his QB drop back as he's in the typical spread shotgun most of the time. He puts the ball where only the receiver has a chance.
HE NEEDS TO INCREASE HIS RELEASE POINT. Balls batted at the line because he has a low release. That needs to be cleaned up.
Can’t disagree with you and think he’s got some great upside . Seems to have a good arm and he runs a 4.7 . Honestly though at this point I don’t see us taking a QB at all . Way too many holes to fill to waste a pick on a guy that will sit and not contribute , unless of course Eli is going . There is just something very unappealing about this whole QB class.
He's just as good as herbert IMO. His incompletes aren't incomplete at the next level. Haskins has two receivers in the draft, I don't see any WR's from Mizzou or OL. ** Mizzou has a good WR in Emmanuel Hall.
I thought Daniel Jones was the front runner going into this draft but his game at the Senior Bowl was really poor to say the least. Mvp or not.
He had a deer in the headlights look to him and was highly inaccurate for the time he played.
I thought Drew Locks stock went up but I see Dwayne Haskins as the first QB taken in the draft now.
I thought Jones was decent enough in the game, word was he had a terrible week of prep though.
Agreed. He took mvp and went 8/11 for 115 and a score in pretty much a quarter of play. His combine performance was a little underwhelming but I’m interested in watching his pro day. For me, I’d rather get a sack monster and pass rush at 6 then maybe look for Lock or Jones at 17.

I’m starting to agree. If DG could somehow do some “pickology” to get a top DL at 6 and Lock also, that would seem a great day 1 of draft.Lock is the exact QB that I think would do well behind Eli for a bit (not predicting how long!).
Peter Schrager now has Lock going to us ahead of Haskins.....Couple of months ago, people thought I was crazy, but I didn't listen to the analysts, I just watched the film. Now the smoke screen is being removed
By this point in the lead-up to the NFL Draft, it's no secret the Giants have been linked to selecting a quarterback with the sixth overall selection.
Most of that speculation, if general manager Dave Gettleman does opt to address the future of the quarterback position with the pick, has revolved around the Giants drafting Dwayne Haskins. But on Tuesday, NFL Network's Peter Schrager released a new mock draft with the Giants selecting a different signal-caller.
Schrager has the Giants taking former Missouri quarterback Drew Lock at that spot, with Haskins falling to the Broncos at No. 10 (and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray going first overall to the Cardinals).
Against Alabama. Started ff with the INT and came back out slinging. I like his confidence. alabma bullied his receivers and he likes throwing in tight windows. Balls batted at the line again. Defensive coordinators know his weakness. He also needs to feel pressure and learn to step up in the pocket to avoid the pass rush. Eli could teach him a lot.
He competed against a great Alabama defense, but it take 22 to win. Team was outmatched but his film still shows a confident accurate QB not scared of big games..
on a side note: Chad kelly amost beat these guys twice.
I don't think he is the best QB in the draft though I think he will be a good quarterback in the NFL. I think Kyler Murray is the best QB in the NFL draft because he has the best mobility and one of the best arms. His only weakness is his decision making, though it is good it could still be better. He is not too short. Others NFL QBs his size have had success. People say he can't see over his O-line but QBs don't see over their o-line, they look through the holes between the lineman. I think Lock is the second or third best QB in the NFL draft. Maybe Haskins is better. Also I want the Giants to trade for Josh Rosen so they don't have to draft a QB.
IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IT OR DON'T GET IT, I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO TRY TO CONVINCE YOU, SORRY.
The New York Giants are said to be leaning towards taking a top defensive player with the sixth overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. At one point, it seemed a certainty that they would select a quarterback with that pick, perhaps Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins.
Haskins appears to have fallen out of their plans the past few weeks. Strong pro days by Duke’s Daniel Jones, West Virginia’s Will Grier and Drew Lock of Missouri have steered them away from Haskins. The name that is popping up more than the others now is Lock.
Lock is scheduled to visit the Giants this week. He will also meet with the Washington Redskins, who are also seeking a long-term solution at quarterback.
