The New York Giants were always going to take Saxon Barkley to No. 2 in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Despite the other teams' efforts to trade up to No. 2 overall,

2 overall and selected the Penn State star.

According to a recent report, the Giants got calls for the top pick, and they could possibly get something for it, but they ignored them.

Asked McCagan this once. No way to answer. The NYJ knew that NYG was going to Barkley and only Barkley.

Only MM panicked when Baker 1 was gone. He loved Elway, knew Darnold.

Thought he would offer moon and stars to NYG for 2. It is possible Gettleman never answered the phone. Just took Barkley," wrote Connor Hughes.

One fan wrote, "I didn't think anyone could be as bad as McKegan, but Gettleman's tenure definitely comes close."

One fan said, "Basically the Giants would have gotten several firsts, Von Miller, and more and we would be in heaven."

"Dave Gettleman should go to jail for what he did to the Giants organization.

Run it on the ground and still good performance from their side. I'm sick," said one fan.

"The Dave Gettleman era will live on in infamy," wrote another fan.

The Giants are hoping to build up a contender going forward, but the past few years have been tough.
