The 5 O'Clock Club: What will the Giants do?

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere…

The 5 o’clock club aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.

Here’s Albert Breer’s take on things in an article recently published by Sports Illustrated:

When I heard Giants GM Dave Gettleman say he wanted a Hall-of-Fame type with the draft’s second pick, I couldn’t help but think of the last time New York was drafting in the Top 5, in 2004. Back then, Ernie Accorsi said he didn’t plan on picking that high again, and that belief led them to strike on the opportunity to find a franchise quarterback. This will come down to Gettleman’s evaluation of this year’s quarterbacks, but it’s hard to imagine he’d pass on someone he sees as a potential Hall-of-Famer at the most important position. Gettleman, by the way, was working for Accorsi in 2004.
