The New York Giants selected Saquon Barkley, a versatile running back who will take pressure off quarterback Eli Manning, with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

"It was just insane I was in the same room as him", Hernandez said on seeing Manning in his official visit with the Giants. NY switched to the defense in the third round, taking edge-rushing linebacker Lorenzo Carter of Georgia and bullish tackle B.J. Hill of North Carolina State.

The Giants grabbed mammoth guard Will Hernandez of UTEP with the second pick of the second round on Friday night, a 345-pounder who moved into the Miners starting lineup as a redshirt freshman and started all 49 games at left guard.

Darnold is a New York Jet after Gang Green scooped him up at third overall, and their careers will forever be compared. His availability could be too enticing for the Giants to pass up, especially after trading Jason Pierre-Paul to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. General manager Dave Gettleman is not going to force the issue just to select a player at one of those positions. That's something the Giants desperately needed coming off a 3-13 season.

"Once Cleveland took Baker, I was taking Saquon no matter what", said Gettleman. "It taught me a lot".

Senate Panel Votes to Protect Special Counsel From Arbitrary Dismissal
But Cornyn, the number two Republican in the senate, made a stark prediction "This bill will not be taken up on the Senate floor". Some senators voted against the bill because they thought it was an unconstitutional infringement on executive branch power.

The New York Giants got themselves a true hog mollie in the second-round of the NFL Draft.

If Barkley was gone, the Giants were ready to stay at No. 2 and pivot to the player they liked second-best on their draft board. "He can run. He played very smart". He's strong and has a solid base for the running game, and he's athletic enough for pulling and strong enough in pass protection.

Gettleman has been hard at work this offseason improving the Giants' offensive line, signing left tackle Nate Solder and interior lineman Patrick Omameh in free agency.

Hernandez comes from a smaller school that failed to secure even a single win in 2017; National Football League teams may have had a lower grade on the big gaurd than anticipated.
