GM Ernie Accorsi said that it shouldn't be difficult to find four players among the entire draft. Here's the first of our top five, one of which will all but definitely become a New York Football Giant by the end of the weekend.
Eli Manning is regarded as the best player in the Draft in most circles. What remains to be seen is whether the Giants also share that school of thought. Yes, the Giants did contact the Chargers about acquiring the top selection. No, it wasn't necessarily for Manning. Don't forget about Robert Gallery and Ben Roethlisberger. The Giants certainly haven't.
Besides the obvious pedigree – and apparent New York need since the club has yet to extend Kerry Collins' pact – Manning brings a fundamentally sound approach to the QB position.
However, he doesn't have tremendous arm strength and isn't exactly John Elway on the deep ball. Some scouts even believe that his game is somewhat limited, and that he needs to be involved in a certain type of offense to be successful. Others state that his stock is rising primarily because of his last name. Obviously, his older brother Peyton is one's of the game's best QBs, but isn't regarded as one of the game's best winners.
In TGI's crystal ball, Eli Manning will not be holding up Giants blue this weekend.
