Who will the Giants pick No. 2 overall? Vote here!

New, comments

We’ve seen “experts” mock out the first round. Time to do the first nine picks for ourselves.

The 2018 NFL Draft is less than three weeks away, which means the mock drafts are flying fast and furious as everybody offers their “expert” opinion. Plenty of people will get a handful of picks right, but it’s mostly guess work this year.

We’ll continue checking out mock drafts, but I thought we’d try something different as well. Everybody has their opinion on who each team should pick in the draft, so why not put together a vote on who will pick which players? This will go through the San Francisco 49ers pick at No. 9. With a couple days for each vote, this will carry us pretty close to the start of the draft.

In voting on this, I’d like people to vote on who they think each team will end up drafting, not necessarily who you think they “should” draft. We are not in the draft rooms, so we don’t know how each team values certain players. So who you think they will draft could very well end up being who you think they should draft. This is entirely non-scientific, so I don’t think we need to get too much into our heads.

We started with the Cleveland Browns, and 57 percent of voters picked USC quarterback Sam Darnold. The next closest vote getter was Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, with 17 percent of the vote. A lot of people think Allen might be the guy at No. 1, but Darnold remains the regular choice.

1. Cleveland Browns - Sam Darnold, QB, USC

Now, we move on to the New York Giants at No. 2. We’ll keep this open for a couple days and then open things up for the New York Jets. Here are the candidates at No. 2.

QB Josh Rosen
QB Josh Allen
QB Baker Mayfield
RB Saquon Barkley
OG Quenton Nelson
DE Bradley Chubb
DB Minkah Fitzpatrick

Some might make an argument for a couple other players to be included, but I think this is a fair list to get things started. The Giants have been mentioned quite a bit as a potential trade-back candidate with the Buffalo Bills. However, for our purposes we will not include trades in the poll.

We’ll have the remaining names on the next poll, but if you have any suggestions you think make sense for the Jets poll, let me know in the comments.
