Here we go:

 

The Giants and Colts have a whopping 21 combined picks in this year's draft.  As evidenced by the OBJ trade, no option is off the table for NY.

 

Before proceeding, I'd like to ask the main question driving this thread: 

"HOW LIKELY IS IT THAT GIANTS AND COLTS BRASS WILL HAVE SOME TRADE OPTIONS/SCENARIOS IN PLACE PRIOR TO THE DRAFT?"   

 

Rationale:  To the casual onlooker and most football analysts, nobody is sure what the Giants' plan is or if they even have one.  I'm sure that they do, but once the draft begins things could change in a mighty hurry and the Giants may have to resort to plan B, C, or even D.  Ballard, always in search of value and opportunity, may well move up or down if the conditions are favorable.

 

Interest:  If the Cards draft Murray and NY misses out on Haskins, they could get put into a position where they need a 1-year stop-gap other than Manning to get through 2019.  This is where Brissett comes into play.  There's no guarantee the Giants love Drew Lock or Daniel Jones, so things could go south in short order.  On the flip side, Sterling Shepard's name has come up in trade rumors.  With Tate the new slot guy in NY, Shepard could indeed be on the block.  He could be a perfect add as a proven commodity to round out the WR corps in Indy.  T.Y. is #1, Funchess the possession/red zone target, Shepard in the slot, and Cain as the wild card/deep threat.  Brissett and Shepard would have similar trade value, with Brissett and Ballard holding positional leverage.

 

Equitability:  With so many collective picks, it wouldn't be hard to make moves at any point in the draft with our without the Brissett/Shepard dynamics.  As a short value guide, here are some of the early round picks and values available for both teams:

 

GIANTS:  Rnd 1, Pick 17 (17) = 950               COLTS:  Rnd 1, Pick 27 (27) = 700

                 Rnd 2, Pick 05 (35) = 550                              Rnd 2, Pick 04 (34) = 560

                 Rnd 3, Pick 31 (63) = 276                              Rnd 2, Pick 27 (59) = 310

                 Rnd 4, Pick 06 (102) = 92                              Rnd 3, Pick 25 (89) = 145

                 Rnd 4, Pick 30 (126) = 46                              Rnd 4, Pick 27 (123) = 49

                 

Considering the picks, players, and options available I wouldn't be surprised to see one or more trades between NY and Indy as both teams attempt to build through this draft.  I'd be even less surprised to hear that they've discussed progressions and compensation packages based on how the draft unfolds.  Last year saw an unprecedented number of first round trades.  Food for thought.

One thing that is predictable about Gsttleman is that he never trades.   Look at his draft history with Carolina and New York.

So much attention on Jacoby Brissett, but I continue to wonder why people think he's in high demand as a starting QB.

 

I like Brissett, I think he has tools and upside, but I don't see any team going out of their way to acquire him right now. Especially the Giants. They're evidently content to let Eli finish his contract as their starter, and he wasn't as bad as people think he was last year. And if they really like someone in this year's draft, they're within range to get anyone they want (outside of Murray, assuming the Cardinals want him at #1). 

 

I feel like trading for Brissett this year would be something like their 8th option, out of ten. I think they'd sooner commit to a tank job in 2019 and get another high draft pick in 2020 so they can go after one of the three guys presumed to be at the top of next year's draft.

This. . . I don't see Brissett on anyone's radar as a future starter.

I think given the opportunity, Brissett is a starter in this league, but highly doubt anyone is seriously looking at him as an option.

Simply put, he'd be too expensive for us to let him go. Can't see a deal that's worth it for both us and another team pursuing him.

I would trade our #1 this year which is the 26th pick and Brissett for Barkley. Ballard would never do that but I would.

 

We would still have 8 picks and arguably the best RB in the league who is young.

This has a chance of happening that ranges from somewhere between zero and less than zero.  They seem very set on Eli this year. So why would they invest in Brissett, a guy with one year left on his deal, now?  If they want to develop a QB, why not draft one that they will have at a cheap rate for 4 years?

If we had Barkley we would win the SB IMO, he and Mack would be deadly together.

Forget that Ballard would never do it.  The Giants are the team that would never do it.   They wouldn’t be getting anything close to enough.   It would be a non-starter.

Oh I know, I was in fantasy land haha . We would have to give up way more than that.

I agree but I would still do that trade. Giants would not though as NCF pointed out.

I think we drastically over-value Brissett.

If we were getting legitimate offers, Ballard would move or we'd at least hear whispers.

  I also feel he's more valuable to us this year than a weak offer.

i like Brissett, but logic tells me he'd be a hotter commodity if the league saw him the way i do.

100% Agree

100% Agree again. Any GM would take a 2nd Rd pick for a backup QB on the final year of rookie deal period.  It hasn't happened.

He's a great locker room guy, but does he give the team an edge backing up Luck? And does JB really fit F. Reich offense???

Other than being a great locker room guy, I don't see anything other than a fringe starter/backup with Brissett. The past 2 weeks basically determined his market is not that high.

Agree on all fronts.

it would be interesting to see what he could do behind this OL tho.  He had no chance when he started and was lucky to have finished the year NOT on IR.  I think there is potential there.

I might even prefer him to a couple of the 32 starters.

I just think it is what it is.

 

If we can get a pick 3rd rounder or better, we probably would take it?

 

If not you let him play it out as a back up with at least a chance to get a good comp pick(depending on other moves). Maybe not? He could resign here at that point as well. 

 

If you can only get a 4th or worse draft pick for him, he is worth more to keep. 

 

Just my opinion.

The Giants just drafted Barkley and he's the offensive ROY.  Why would they even want to part ways with him?  Shepherd on the other hand would be an obtainable target.

They really want him to be so they can imagine high returns in trade for him.

Especially the second half of last year when their O line started to perform better.  Eli can still sling it given a little time in the pocket.  That is Gettelman's job, like it was for Ballard.

Brissett would only be a 1 year rental, with a potential monster deal waiting on the doorstep.  Hard to give up anything of value for that scenario.

    • Just avoid this website for about 30 seconds leading up to the pick. Not that hard to avoid this type of spoiler.
    • Fact - Dorsey put KC in a hole from a cap perspective Fact - Dorsey told Maclin via email that he was being released.  Fact - Dorsey was fired from KC Fact - KC went from ranked in the 20s offensively to the top 5 immediately after Dorsey was fired   Simply put, Dorsey didn't work out in KC. And firing someone via email is just *ic and cowardly. That is black and white.
    • You have a singularly unique viewpoint.   If only the real world was as black and white as you seem to think it is....   If only....  
    • If all are there, I take Wilkins 99% of the time and Simmons 1%. Like you've stated its unlikely though, so I'll go with Simmons (provided Dr's reports are good).  
    • I already pointed to 2 teams who got far more hosed this year than the Colts.  The Buccaneers and the Raiders.  Even the NFL came out and ADMITTED it was not a fair schedule.  So tell me, did they really care? Nope.  They had plenty of opportunity to pour over the schedules before they became public and make some adjustments.  They did not.  They have proven my point.  They do not care if schedules are unfair.   When I say to whine, just play your schedule, that refers to the difficulty this year of the teams we play and the locations of the games which are hard wired in and known to everyone the second the schedule comes out.  I am also not whining when I pointed to the schedule's order being particularly difficult with those three divisional games coming down the road.   Those are simply the teams hard wired in and the order, though not preferential, is not worth whining about.   It's a known reality you have to play all those teams in all those locations.     BUT.. and here is the massive distinction: The late night games and the nationally featured games are entirely and intentionally created all season.  Nobody denies this.   So for 10 of 13 seasons, they have INTENTIONALLY given us a horrendously unbalanced disadvantages, and they do not care.  The idea that they DO care at all about things like CTE is only because they don't want the lawsuits and they don't want the gravy train to be legislated by government to stop.  They don't want the PEOPLE to demand it.  Or for Moms to stop letting their hyper athletic kids to play football and instead guide them into other sports.  Of course soccer leads to more overall concussions per player worldwide at all levels, but the media simply doesn't care because the "world" game is off limits and the NFL is a big fat target to be taken down by a line of special interests in the USA.  It is a game that important to men and boys and often teaches them to work together for something bigger than themselves, to have discipline and focus, to stay out of trouble and put some effort into grades and it often gives kids without fathers in the home exposure to many father figures in the game, not just a head coach, but assistant positional coaches and coordinators, weight lifting/fitness coaches and team captains/leaders as well as peers who are more often doing the right things instead of the wrong things.  For whatever reason some would prefer to theorize, there are major forces out to destroy that lifeline for boys, young men and even full grown men.  But the NFL doesn't care about the health or those issues.  They only care that the supply of super freak athletes continues unabated and they don't care about fairness, equality or safety, they care about TV ratings (#1 show on every involved network) so those nearly insane rates keep growing and to keep butts in seats, gambling growing and thriving (wait til you see what is coming in that arena) and merchandise sales humming along.  If they have to screw the Colts and other teams along the way, it's no big deal to them.  If the refs just happen to screw the smaller markets at key moments of specific games to change who advances, well, that's just a happy coincidence that rings up a higher ticket on the cash machine.   And based on attitudes like "small markets like Indianapolis should be happy to just have a team" they have those people just where they want them.  Docile and willing to take any scraps they care to toss out.  That's how they con cities into terrible stadium deals (thank God Indianapolis representative are brilliant and have connected our convention business to the stadium literally to the stadium making us one of the top convention destinations in the world, but I digress).     Pointing out TRUTHS is not whining.  Pointing out and listing undeniable facts is not whining.  Whining about me doing that is whining.  Whining about me pointing out when your faux facts and belief in them as being naive is whining.   Not being able to tell the difference is also naive.  But alas.
