EAST RUTHERFORD Julian Love NFL Draft , N.J. (AP) — When the New York Giants report to training camp next month, two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning is going to be the No. 1 quarterback for coach Pat Shurmur.Shurmur reiterated his support for the 38-year-old veteran as his starter Tuesday. He also said heir apparent Daniel Jones, the No. 6 overall pick in the draft, is getting ready to play in the regular-season opener at Dallas.While that may sound clear, Shurmur faced a number of questions about Jones’ status during his final media availability at organized team activities.— When the whole team reports on July 24 will there be an open competition at quarterback?— What would Jones have to do to win the job?— How close is Jones to being ready to play?Shurmur insisted he would play his best player.“I know we are dancing around the words there,” Shurmur said “Right now, Eli is getting ready to have a great year and Daniel is getting ready to play. You see what happens with it. We feel good about where Eli is. He is our starting quarterback and we have a young player that we think is going to be an outstanding player, getting himself ready to play.”Manning has been the Giants’ starting quarterback since the middle of the 2004 season. He led the team to Super Bowl titles in the 2007 and ’11 seasons. However, New York has made the playoffs only once (2016) in the last seven years.There has been a lot of hype about Jones since the draft. He is young, athletic Julian Love Buffalo Bills Jersey , has a strong arm and can run, something that has never been a part of Manning’s game. He also has looked good in practices.“He is on track with the goal to be ready to play Day 1,” Shurmur said. “That is really what all the players need to be thinking. The quarterback stuff will be on the front burner for everyone. I get that. He is on track.”Jones believes he has made progress in the workouts. The Duke product also has much to learn.“I think I have certainly made progress and am a lot closer than I was the first week of OTAs,” Jones said. “I think that is positive. As far as am I ready ready? I am not sure, I have never played. I am improving and making progress. That is positive.”The quarterback position is crowded. Besides Manning and Jones, Alex Tanney and Kyle Lauletta, a fourth-round draft choice last year, are back.Neither got much of a chance to play last year. It’s doubtful they will this year with Manning and Jones on the roster.Lauletta said his goal in the offseason is to throw with some Giants receivers at game speed. He also intends to work on his throwing mechanics with Adam Behrends, who was his quarterback coach at the combine.“One of the cool things about this offense is we have so many different routes, so many different guys who can run it from different splits Authentic Christopher Slayton Jersey , and there are so many throws on the field that you need to be able to make,” Lauletta said. “If you don’t get reps throwing all those throws, you somehow have to get yourself ready.”That’s the advantage Manning has entering training camp. He has 15 years of experience to call upon.“I kind of take it as a challenge to improve,” Lauletta said of his own situation. “Last year is done with. I just have to show improvement. I already feel more comfortable.”NOTES: The Giants had planned to attend the Yankees-Mets game on Monday night, but it was rained out. … The veterans finish the OTAs this week. The rookies have one more week. Rookies report to training camp on July 22, two days before the veterans.

The bad news is that they need help Christopher Slayton Jersey Boys , and a “ifs” to break their way, at the most important position on the defense -- pass rusher. But the good news is that the 2019 NFL Draft happens to be a phenomenal one for pass rushers.The Giants hold both the sixth and seventeenth picks in the first round, which gives them options and flexibility in how they approach their draft. It is entirely possible -- perhaps even likely -- that an elite prospect will fall to the Giants at at sixth overall. However, they might opt to address another position there, such as quarterback. If they do, they could look to their second first round pick to try and fill the hole at pass rusher. About best case scenario the Giants could hope for would be for Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell to fall to them there. MeasurablesProsGreat length and size for an NFL EDGE. Very good hand usage.

If they want them going downhill on nearly every rush, then the 6-foot-4 3/8, 264-pound Ferrell should be able to transition to the position well enough. There are enough similarities between a 4-3 defense and a 1-gap 3-4 front that his position would basically be the same in both alignments. If the Giants want a player who can help drop into coverage and assist in disguising blitzes, they might want to look elsewhere. As a prospect, independent of scheme Youth Eli Manning Jerseys , it is difficult to find much wrong in Ferrell’s game. He has a good first step and is one of the most polished pass rushers -- defenders -- in the entire draft when it comes to using his technique. Ferrell seems to approach every rep with a plan of how to attack the offense, and generally executes that plan well. He has fantastic hand usage, constantly battling for leverage and to keep offensive linemen from even being able to think about locking in on him, then uses his length well to extend, create space, and finish his rush. Ferrell might not have the athletic upside of some of the other pass rushers in this class, but he has matches that with a high floor thanks to solid athleticism and his polished technique. Ferrell might have been one of the first defenders off the board in many drafts, but the depth of talent at the position this year likely means that while Ferrell might become a solid value in the middle of the first round.
