Podcast: Was this a franchise-altering draft for the Jets and Giants?
Joe Douglas and Joe Schoen delivered this past weekend at the top of the 2022 NFL Draft. Podcast co-host Jim Monos scouted alongside both GMs of both teams in the southeast. We discuss the long term.
The temptation to rush to conclusions is very real this week. Just about every fan base can talk themselves into a newfound sense of hope out of the NFL Draft. That being said, both the New York Jets and New York Giants entered the weekend with premium picks — and both franchises have every right to be psyched about the future.
What a wild four months it’s been for the Giants since crash-landing at rock bottom.
On this episode of the Go Long Podcast, longtime personnel man Jim Monos and myself recap the draft with a heavy focus on those Jets and Giants. Back in his days as an area scout in the southeast, Monos worked alongside Jets GM Joe Douglas and Giants GM Joe Schoen. He shares stories from those days on the trail.
There is a ton to love about both teams’ drafts. But let’s not forget it’s always about the quarterback in the NFL.
The Jets are doubling down on Zach Wilson. The Giants are giving Daniel Jones a one-year trial run.
Also, is Kaiir Elam as allergic to tackling as scouts claim? It’s hard to imagine Sean McDermott adding a cornerback he doesn’t fully believe in.
