Going into the draft on Thursday night, Giants’ fans felt pretty good about their outlook.
They had three total picks in the first round, including the sixth overall pick. With the exception of the Raiders selecting Clelin Ferrell with the fourth pick, things were proceeding as planners for Big Blue. Then their turn came at sixth, and everyone and their mama, and Lee Corso, knew who the Giants should pick. It was completely set up to be a victory for all of their fans, so nothing could ruin the moment they waited for.
“With the sixth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select….Daniel Jones from Duke University.”
Welcome to the @Giants, @Daniel_Jones10! #NFLDraft
Yep. The Giants blew it and went with a typical Giants prototype QB, completly fumbling the obvious pick, Dwayne Haskins from Ohio State.
In response, the team was shredded all night on Twitter. Here are some of the best responses to the Giants suspect selection.
Listen to the Giants’ fans at Met Life Stadium when they passed on Dwayne Haskins and took Daniel Jones 😂 (📽 @BleacherReport via BigBlueVCR) https://t.co/oHSJPoChJO

The most vicious venom was saved for this tweet from the team itself in regards to their new QB’s combine. The replies are absolutely hilarious.
