The New York Giants have officially kickstarted their rebuild in earnest with the trading of Odell Beckham Jr. The question is how long with it last.

Well, the good news is GM Dave Gettleman has positioned his team to truly build for the future. New York has a staggering 12 draft picks ready for 2019 include four in the first three rounds. This presents a major opportunity for them to stockpile some serious young talent they can start building the next foundation with.

Will that foundation including a new quarterback? Only Gettleman can answer that and he’s stated again and again that the team remains committed to Eli Manning. For how much longer, nobody knows. One thing is clear. This front office isn’t deviating from what they believe to be right.

Montez Sweat

EDGE,Texas A&M

Dave Gettleman is a man set in his ways. He believes football teams must be built a certain way, and it always starts up from. One thing he tends to covet above most things is size. He believes this is a game for big men so he likes to zero in on those traits before anything else. There’s no question he’ll have taken major notice of Texas A&M edge rusher Montez Sweat.

The kid is every bit of 6’6 and over 260 lbs with a chiseled frame. He’s long, plays with strength and showcased at the scouting combine that he’s a freak athlete who can play in any defense. The Giants are in desperate need of help at the edge rusher position after trading Olivier Vernon. Sweat has the chops to be a foundational piece for the future who can deliver 10 sacks a year.
