Taking a closer look at the New York Giants 2018 NFL Draft

Other players ranked higher during the pre-draft process-such as Texas offensive lineman Connor Williams and LSU running back Derrius Guice-also landed in the second round. He will have a unique offensive talent in the backfield behind him in Barkley that could quickly become a franchise cornerstone that as a huge part in helping lead the team to success in 2018 and well beyond that.

"I think this league and our game is about good quarterback play and I think it's about development of the quarterbacks", Shurmur said. Everything they've done this offseason has been built toward winning now and making a push for the playoffs with Eli Manning in 2018.

Overall, the Giants have turned the culture around in just one offseason and added several key pieces to the puzzle. Lauletta will probably battle second-year QB Davis Webb - a 2017 3rd round pick - for the backup QB job in training camp. "Yeah, you have to", Giants GM Dave Gettleman said on Saturday after the Giants took Lauletta. He makes our defense better because he has the much stronger ability to hold the ball.

They're not far off.

By the time Barkley spoke to reporters in New Jersey in a conference call, he had received welcoming texts from Manning and receiver Odell Beckham Jr., whom he had recently trained with in Los Angeles.

The clock seems to be set at two years for that development, and it's already ticking.

Lombardo: Jordan Howard and Allen Robinson in Chicago is one that's up there. But with the combination of speed and explosiveness both from Barkley and from Beckham. "McIntosh builds depth on the defensive line, but the team will need to find additional talent at wide receiver and cornerback after the draft to bolster those positions". "I can tell you with the four picks, we have gotten a lot better".

Giants fans were clearly excited about the addition of Barkley, and they showed it with their wallets.

Since the glory days of Joe Namath almost 50 years ago, the Jets have been searching for a homegrown QB to deliver a similar type of sustained success as the face of the franchise.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah graded Barkley as the best running prospect of the past three draft classes (including Leonard Fournette and Ezekiel Elliott), and one team even had a flawless grade on him. In the arms race of the NFC East, the Giants just took a pretty big leap forward toward catching the Eagles in 2018 and beyond.
