There are reports that the New York Giants are not currently looking at QB Dwayne Haskins with the No. 6 selection in the 2019 NFL Draft.
With April 25 rapidly approaching, the New York Giants are already going against the grain.
The much-speculated Giants first-round draft pick has now become more confusing. Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State is the second best QB available in this upcoming draft. He could very well drop to the sixth position and be right there for the taking by the Giants.
However, according to Dianna Russini, who spoke on Jordan Raanan’s Breaking Big Blue podcast for ESPN, Haskins isn’t getting much of a look.
No Dwayne Haskins. A QB with their second first-round pick? A must-listen podcast with @diannaESPN yesterday dropping in. Don’t miss it!

Quarterback Eli Manning will likely be the go-to guy once again next season, but it could very well be his last. The Giants have already stripped this roster into a rebuilding phase that will last years. They have lost star players like Odell Beckham Jr. and Landon Collins already this offseason, and there is still room for more moves.
Not giving a look to Haskins leaves that sixth overall selection wide open. After improving the vastly deteriorating QB position, there are still a lot of holes to fill. The defensive line could arguably be the second biggest problem for the Giants and then comes the O-Line.
Also, the Giants not being interested in Haskins leaves there second first-round pick, at No. 17 via Cleveland, up in the air. There is still the possibility of acquiring Drew Lock from Missouri with the mid-first-round pick.
The New York Giants front office is claiming to have a plan going into this upcoming season. What that plan could be is anyone’s guess, but one thing is set in stone: the Giants are rebuilding. The severed ties and unexpected strategy going into the NFL Draft are just the beginning of bringing Big Blue back on top.
