NFL: NFL Draft Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

In the months before the NFL Draft, Dwayne Haskins and the New York Giants seemed like a perfect fit. The Giants were looking for a new quarterback as Eli Manning enters possibly his final season, and Haskins fits the size model that the Giants typically covet out of their players (in addition to being a really freaking good quarterback.)

As we got closer to the draft though, it became apparent that the Giants were looking in a different, more hilarious direction to fill their QB need:

Ultimately, the Giants stayed true to their board, set their fanbase ablaze, and left division rival Washington to snatch Haskins with the 15th pick. That surely won’t haunt them for the next decade-plus.

On this episode of the Hangout in the Holy Land, Patrick Mayhorn and I have a good laugh at the Giants’ expense, and talk about the best fits for other Buckeyes selected over the weekend. (Hello, Mike Weber in Dallas.) We also discuss the addition of QB transfer Gunnar Hoak, and what he brings to the Buckeyes.
