With just over 72 hours to go until commissioner Roger Goodell begins announcing the NFL draft election, there is plenty of speculation as to what some teams are seeing about their first-round pick.

According to ESPN, the San Francisco 49ers have two first-round picks – the 13th and the 31st overall – and are open to business for either or both.

According to Adam of ESPN, the defending NFC champions have no pick in the second, third or fourth rounds – with no picks from the 31st to the fifth round after their selection – and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter is trying to pick more.

The New York Giants have an overall fifth pick in the draft and are theoretically already a quarterback since picking Daniel Jones with the sixth pick a year ago, but they are still reportedly interested in Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert in the first round.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Giants had a FaceTime conversation with first-year coach Joe Jazz Herbert, and New York is doing extensive research on the Senior Bowl MVP of 2021.

However, it could be a little bit of a gameplay for the Giants, as there were several teams behind them in the draft – the Miami Dolphins at No. 5 and No. 1 overall. LOS ANGELES Chargers – Need quarterbacks, and New York is potentially seeing their pick prices and business prices rise.

Jose had an inconsistent rookie season, leading the Jets to a pair of starts in his first two starts but went only 1-10 as a starter in the remainder. He finished with 61,277 yards, 26 passing touchdowns, and 61.5 percent passing in 12 interceptions.

Herbert was exciting as a senior last season, passing 66.6 percent of his passes with 5 touchdowns and 5 touchdowns to the Oregon team that beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl and in the final AP poll. Ranked number one.
