NY had been linked to the dynamic running back throughout the pre-draft process.
And when Gettleman makes that pick shortly after 8 p.m. on Thursday night, he won't just be making his first pick as the new Giants general manager, he'll be making the franchise's most important pick since the Eli Manning draft in 2004. Giants GM Dave Gettleman didn't want Eli Manning's replacement; he wanted "the unanimous best player in the draft".
"And obviously I know it's not going to happen tomorrow and it's not going to happen in one year". The Giants struggles in many areas during their dismal 2017 campaign, in part due to the team's lack of a running attack. He will turn 38 in January. If the two-time Super Bowl MVP experiences a poor 2018, there will be no arrows left in the quiver of his ardent defenders.
They now will be going back to Eli Manning - unless something insane happens - who as anyone who has seen knows, is no longer even an average QB.
McCown, the starter last season who'll turn 39 in July, was re-signed last month and is expected to enter training camp running the first-team offense.
That would give the Lions their best draft since 2007 when offensive tackle Levi Brown was taken fifth overall by Arizona and linebacker Paul Posluszny was picked in the second round by Buffalo.
To put it simply, Barkley fits like a glove on the New York Giants, who went 3-13 last season.

Meanwhile, Tesla Director of AI and Autopilot Vision will have "overall responsibility" for Autopilot software, Tesla said. First, this marks the second time in less than a year that Tesla has seen its Autopilot chief leave for another company.
There has been a lot of speculation over the Cleveland Browns number one pick and if they should take a quarterback, running back or even possibly trade the pick to garner more draft picks.
"What's the long-term plan with the quarterback?".
"I think that the devaluing of the running back is really a myth", Gettleman said.
"I had to be patient behind Saquon", Sanders said. He's our quarterback. We believe in him.
Starting quarterbacks in many cases are productive well into their 30s and beyond, evidenced by the ongoing success of the New England Patriots' Tom Brady, 40, the New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees, 39, the Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger, 36, and the Los Angeles Chargers' Phillip Rivers, also 36.
TheKnightReport.Net talked to some of the Scarlet Knights class of 2018 signees to see who they think might get drafted number one overall and why. "Similarly, the Eagles" decision to pursue and acquire Wentz in 2016 shifted the balance of power in the division again.
But with the Jets, Darnold will get a chance to bring his "it" factor to a franchise and fanbase that will be immediately energized by his selection. I think that Giants fans and National Football League fans need to really start looking at Saquon Barkley as more than a traditional running back.
