      But they already have the great Josh Freeman.  ;Dhttp://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000347804/article/report-giants-seriously-considering-johnny-manziel"NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock predicts Johnny Manziel will tumble down the draft board to the Dallas Cowboys at No. 16, but at least one NFC East team might not let the Texas A&M quarterback get that far.If he falls to them at No. 12, the New York Giants reportedly would "seriously consider" drafting Manziel on Thursday night, a source told NJ.com.That's an intriguing and partially mystifying landing spot for Johnny Football, with two-time Super Bowl winner Eli Manning firmly entrenched as New York's franchise arm.Coming off ankle surgery, Eli has embarked on "some light throwing," according to his brother Peyton. With the Giants signal-caller determined to bounce back from a disastrous season that saw him toss a league-high 27 picks, Big Blue has been targeted as a team more likely to draft help at tight end, wide receiver or along the defensive line -- not under center.The Giants, under general manager Jerry Reese, have made a habit of sticking to their board and drafting the player they deem as the top talent available. Manziel doesn't fit an immediate need, but New York reportedly has spent the offseason pondering if Manning, at 33, has waltzed into the decline phase of his long career."It's also possible the Giants are floating this information out there to trigger a potential trade in the case that Manziel, indeed, falls. Fear not, friends, all this draft-buzz malarkey will soon give way to the truth on Thursday night.

      Manziel to the Giants is what I thought made most sense out of any team. Its New York but they are a more stable franchise than the Jets.  They are on the down swing and need a change. Manziel can sit behind Eli for this year. Then Eli and Coughlin will be run out of town by another bad season and its Manziel time as the face of New York. Manziel followed by Olineman would be a good plan for the Giants.

      Bad fit. IF he had to sub in for a injured eli, the system wouldn’t fit.They literally would have to change the scheme midgame or midseason.
