With veteran quarterback Eli Manning in his 15th season with the Giants, many have called on the franchise's front office to consider using their first-round 2019 draft pick to select a young quarterback who will be ready to take over in New York whenever the 37-year-old relinquishes his spot under center.
According to Chris Trapasso's latest 2019 NFL mock draft for CBS Sports, New York will target Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the ninth overall pick, making him the first quarterback of the class to come off the board.
A lot can change between now and the NFL Draft in April, but if Jones winds up in the Giants' hands, it's more than reasonable to expect that their two-time Super Bowl MVP would take Cutcliffe's latest protégé under his wing and groom him for success in the pros.
Six weeks into the season and things are exponentially worse for the Bills, so much so that the team is now turning to 35-year-old career backup Derek Anderson as their starter after signing him just days ago.
First, while many thought Allen would start the year under center for the Bills, head coach Sean McDermott gave the first team duties to Nathan Peterman.
Opening the 2018 season, Peterman completed just 5-of-18 in the Bills first game, prompting McDermott to hand the reins over the Allen almost immediately.
With Allen now feared to be out for multiple weeks, McDermott announced on Wednesday that this Sunday, the Bills will turn to Derek Anderson as their starting quarterback, despite the fact that he's been with the team for just 10 days.
