QB Ryan Nassib the best pick of 2013 Draft?

Posted by Dan Salomone on April 30, 2013 – 9:00 am

When Ryan Nassib was still available after 109 picks in this year’s draft, Jerry Reese and the Giants traded up for the Syracuse quarterback and took him with the 110th overall selection.  After the draft, Reese, the Giants’ general manager, said the value was too high to pass up, and Bill Polian agreed.

The former six-time NFL Executive of the Year and current ESPN analyst placed the decision to draft Nassib at the top of his list of best moves from the weekend. Here’s his analysis:

nassibblitzAs I mentioned before the draft, there were no quarterbacks that I believed warranted an early selection. But that doesn’t mean the position is devoid of talent. Just that these prospects need time to develop and make use of some of their tools and ability. With Nassib, he’s going to get precisely that.

Playing behind Eli Manning, there will be no rush in his development. He can sit back, watch and learn, all while providing the Giants with a terrific safety net in the event of an injury to Eli and perhaps even proving to be Manning’s successor.

By Nassib’s third year in the pros, Manning will be 35, an age at which statistics have shown QBs usually start to break down physically. Their skills may not have diminished, but the accumulation of the punishment they’ve endured starts to take its toll and injury becomes far more common. By the time that starts to impact Eli, Nassib should be experienced to the point where the Giants will feel comfortable inserting him into a game and still feeling they have better than a 50-percent chance to win.

It may have seemed like a strange pick because quarterback isn’t an immediate need for the Giants. But this pick was made with the long view in mind. And I think it was a very savvy selection.

    I was disgusted with the way we took a second round pick in Pugh and let good DEs and LB s go by. Pugh would have been there to grab in the second round.
    However, at 109 to take Nassib was OK. In fact, it was a good choice.

    Pugh would definitely not have gotten out of the first round if the giants did not take him. He was the next highest OL prospect on the board when the giants picked and after the giants picked Pugh, two more OL players were taken in the first round (Chicago or Dallas). Pugh would have been picked by one of those teams in the first if the Giants did not pick him. I am very glad the Gmen picked him instead of Dallas

    I defer to Jerry on this. However, I find it hard, at this point, to see how any of the things suggested about Nassib’s inherent value, are really likely to come to pass. Speculating on what “might” happen to Eli, considering that nothing has so far (and it has been a considerable period of time) is merely that. Perhaps, as I think people might imply from the foregoing, that Jerry knows something he is not sharing with us; mainly in order to not lose competitive advantage. At least I hope so.

    Once the smoke clears, there will be plenty of linebackers and corners out there…We have always done well grooming late round picks into starters…Jacobs ,Bradshaw
    etc…Players want to come to this organization and we’ll be fine…Nassib /good… Pugh will start on our line..rest of them will be taught

    The Pugh pick was once that initially left me wondering but as the draft unfolded and I considered it it made more sense to me. As far Nassib goes it was a very good pick if he does eventually succeed Eli. Given the Giants history at QB I don’t see him getting much playing time so his value as trade bait probably won’t materialize. At worst this pick (a QB) may have been a couple of years early but how often does the opportunity arise?

    The backup qb is the second most important player on the team. I’m serious. If your first qb goes down and your second qb can’t play, your season is over. Phil Simms once broke his finger when he followed through on a pass and hit has hand on a helmet. Who knows what could happen to Manning on any given play. I applaud any and all attempts to have a fine backup.

    I dont know how people could be against the Nassib pick. He is a strong leader, and is a very tough QB. He got a 41 on the Wonderlic, the highest scores of the QB’s the rest were in the 20’s, and he broke passing records at Syracuse. Even though they were mainly and option team prior to 2000….

    And to add, Eli has 2 or 3 good years left and we may see Nassib before that time if Eli continues to struggle and choke away games in October and November.
