With the 2018 NFL Combine drawing to a close on Monday, it looks as though the New York Giants have a clear preference of who they would want to take with the No. 2 selection of the draft this spring.
Penn State running back prospect Saquon Barkley dazzled during his time in Indianapolis as he put on a show for pro scouts. The problem is, he might have impressed so much that the Cleveland Browns, who hold the No. 1 pick, might snap him up to make him the first rusher to be taken first overall since 1995.
That means the Giants will have to have a backup plan, whether they want to draft Eli Manning's successor, the best possible talent available regardless of position or an offensive lineman to shore up the weakest part of the roster.
