NFL Draft Rumors: Giants, Herbert, Tua

Will the Giants actually consider quarterback Justin Herbert with the No. 4 overall pick, even though they already have Daniel Jones under center? The answer is no, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network, though GM Dave Gettleman has been eyeing him for quite some time. Had Herbert entered last year, he would have been Gettleman’s top choice, Pauline hears.

Here’s a look at the latest draft rumblings from around the NFL:

  • In private conversations, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has indicated that Herbert is not actually in consideration for the No. 5 pick, a source close to Ross tells Pauline. That same source says the pick will either be used on Tua Tagovailoa or a position player, with Jordan Love being selected sometime later. If it’s a non-QB at No. 5, Pauline hears that tackle Andrew Thomas is the most likely choice.
  • Multiple NFL execs tell ESPN.com’s Jeremy Fowler that the Vikings are looking to move back. The Vikings own Nos. 22 and 25, but they could fill their needs at cornerback and wide receiver later on. In the second round, they should be able to land one of this year’s second-tier corners such as Utah’s Jaylon Johnson, LSU’s Kristian Fulton, or Alabama’s Trevon Diggs – the brother of former Vikes receiver Stefon Diggs.
  • Based on what we’ve heard, Washington’s Jacob Eason profiles as a Day 2 pick for QB-needy teams like the Patriots. He could also be a fit for teams looking to groom their next signal caller. One AFC exec pondered the possibility of Eason going to the Buccaneers, where the pure passer serve as the heir to Tom Brady. The Bucs own the No. 45 overall pick in the second round and Eason could be there for them, provided that teams like the Colts (No. 34) don’t pounce first.

    All three of Fulton Diggs and Johnson may be gone in round 1. Dantzler Hall and Noah I would be more like it

    Nobody is trading up for Tua or Herbert.

    The fact the Giants had to leak info saying they’re interested in him pretty much proves nobody is interested in moving up. If they’re not interested in moving up to 4 they sure aren’t interested in moving up to 3.

    Dolphins either take Tua or take a tackle at 5 and target Love like at 18 or trade up with the 49ers at 13 or Bucs at 14 by swapping the 18th pick and a 3rd or something.

    Also, Bucs should invest in a RB or two for Brady instead of looking for an heir. Why waste an early pick on a QB, without the 5th year option, when it could be used on a player to help push for a championship.

    With their 2nd bucs should look into Clyde Edwards from LSU, Can Akers out of Fsu, or JK Dobbins out of OSU.

    Later on they should look at Anthony McFarland out of Maryland or Darrynton Evana out of Appalachian as change of pace backs.

        The Bucs have had 2 playoff appearances (both losses) in the past 17 years so naturally they should be organizing a championship parade this season.
