Report: Giants could draft Will Grier if they miss out on other QBs
The New York Giants appear to be committed to finding their quarterback of the future before the start of the 2019 season, and they likely have several contingency plans in place if they don’t land their top option.
The Giants have been linked to just about every top QB prospect in the draft, and ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio reported on Thursday that they are eyeing Duke’s Daniel Jones or Missouri’s Drew Lock. They have two first-round picks (No. 6 and No. 17), so they should have a good shot at landing one of the two. However, they may end up trading back for West Virginia’s Will Grier if they miss out on their first choices.
Another "contingency plan" would be dealing for Josh Rosen on day two, per Sal Pal.

Grier is kind of the forgotten QB prospect in this year’s draft class, as most of the talk has been around Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Jones and Lock. However, the Giants are not the only team that has expressed interest in him, and it would not be a surprise if he doesn’t make it past the first round.
