Unless, of course, something unforeseen happens to Eli Manning — who has never missed an NFL game due to injury.Still, offensive coordinator Mike Shula said Wednesday he felt Jones could do that if he had to.“I think he’d be ready to go. That’s my personal opinion,” Shula said. “I would say this: times have changed. In the years past, whenever you draft a guy, even if it was that early, those guys would traditionally not play until their second or third year. But probably ever since six or seven years ago, you started seeing more guys playing early. But I think he has that capability. “Obviously with any young guy, whether it is Daniel or whoever you have, I think you have to make sure that those guys Youth Julian Love Jersey , you find out what they can do best and get them on the field doing that to start with and then go from there. I think he’s got that capability.”A few other takeaways from Shula’s meeting with media Wednesday:On what he saw when he attended Jones’ Pro Day ...“I think he had a great pro day. Of course, we liked him all along. You know, when you see a guy throw the ball in person, I was down there at the Combine as well, but just another exposure. He throws the ball very well; he’s got a quick release; good touch. And then when he got here I thought everything was actually a little bit better. His arm was even stronger than I had remembered. His release was even quicker I remembered.”On what he has learned about Jones ...“He’s a solid person. He’s really smart. The way you tell that is not necessarily by, alone, how he is picking things up, but by the questions that he asks. ... The things that he was new to [at rookie mini-camp], you could kind of see how quickly he picked them up. Maybe the first day it wasn’t quite as sharp, but the next day it was like he had done it for a long time.”On Eli Manning and his readiness for 2019 ...“This time last year was my first time with Eli, you know, and seeing him in the offseason, I thought he was in really good shape. I think he’s in better shape now than he was. “I just think that he’s moving around pretty good. His arm looks fresh. And maybe even with him, it is kind of maybe the comfort level of being a year in a system and kind of knowing more of what we want. I think he’s throwing the ball well and moving around good.”On Manning’s reaction to the drafting of Jones ...“Most of you guys probably know Eli better than I do; been around him a lot longer. You can imagine Womens Julian Love Jersey , it’s like another day at work. I can remember when we were getting ready to draft Daniel and I called him. I could barely hear him because he’s got his youngest in his arms, the baby. He might’ve been changing a diaper. ‘Oh yeah, coach. Great. See you tomorrow.” That’s how he is. That’s how his approach is.” To trade or not to trade assets — that is the question posed by BBV reader David Whitford. Let’s explore the possibilities."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections New York Giants NewsGiants Training Camp 2016Giants vs. Eagles 2015, Week 17New York Giants NewsBBV mailbag outtake: How the Giants should manage their draft capital toward getting a franchise quarterback New,134commentsTo trade or not to trade assets — that is the question posed by BBV reader David Whitford. Let’s explore the possibilities.EDTShareTweetShareShareBBV mailbag outtake: How the Giants should manage their draft capital toward getting a franchise quarterback NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWOREach week, BBV editor Ed Valentine sorts through his mailbag and picks out a reader-submitted question for me to develop into a longer post. This week’s post is in response to a letter from David Whitford, as follows:David, I think you are definitely on to something. If the Giants do not draft their next franchise quarterback in this draft — and I would be absolutely stunned if that were the case — I think the plan is to fill as many holes as possible on both sides of the ball which would then put them into a situation where come next year, they will have at least two extra comp picks (projected by Over the Cap’s Nick Korte as a third for Landon Collins and a seventh). With a tentative count of nine picks in the 2020 draft, if the Giants draft well this year and plug a lot of those holes, then next year, they can afford to give up the farm to move up to get their franchise quarterback if there is someone they feel is worth going up to get. It’s a long-term strategy and it’s a risky one, and certainly it would help the Giants if they end up drafting in the Top 10 again (or at the very least, the top half of the draft in 2020). But again Authentic Julian Love Jersey , if you draft well in 2019 and those picks prove to plug the holes you have, now you’re pretty much set for 2020, which is a point newest BBV writer Matt Williamson made in his debut column.There is one other facet worth exploring here that I think offers up a clue, and that is the Giants unrestricted free-agent list for 2020. With the team having extended receiver Sterling Shepard, who probably would have been their top UFA next year, the rest of the list largely consists of players whom the Giants will likely either move on from or re-sign for very reasonable extensions. If you prescribe to the theory of using free agency to set up your draft, those players you lose in free agency next year are probably depth/role players that you can replace with Day 3 picks in the 2020 draft.This in turn frees up your premium picks to where if you need to package something together to move up to get your next franchise quarterback, you can do so provided, again, that you have the majority of your holes plugged.And to your point about if Eli Manning doesn’t return for 2020, would they sign a veteran, I think that’s definitely the scenario. The Giants, remember, signed Kurt Warner back in 2004 after Kerry Collins was said to have declined wanting to hang around knowing that he wasn’t assured of being the full-year starter. I would think with there being 36 quarterbacks set to be UFAs next year (and yes Julian Love Jersey Boys , I’m sure that number will decrease, though probably not by a lot), there might be a quarterback or two interested in extending his career to where he would be willing to come in and start for the Giants, be it for a full season or part of the season, while a rookie gets up to speed.I would think in an ideal scenario, the Giants would prefer to have Manning as that guy, which of course would mean extending his contract one year, something I know won’t sit well with a lot of Giants fans. As I noted in this article for Forbes, such an extension could contain a per-game roster bonus to where if the youngster is ready to start, the Giants could make the transition and save a little something on their cap in the process by not having to pay Manning a per-game roster bonus.NOTE: There will be a full mailbag on Saturday.
