Giants GM Dave Gettleman told reporters at the Combine on Tuesday that they’re “open for business” at No. 4 overall in this year’s draft.
“Absolutely we’re open for business,” Gettleman said, via ESPN.com. “Again, whatever we do is going to be in our best interest. Trading back has its danger. What happens if … we’re at four. Let’s say we trade back to eight. There are only four players that we like. What if they’re all gone? Now what are you going to do? Trade back again? You can trade yourself back out of good players.
“But, to answer your question, we’re open.”
Gettleman has never traded back as a GM, so this would be a departure from how he has approached the draft in years past.
However, the Giants are an interesting position, as teams could be looking to trade up for a quarterback, depending on how the first three picks play out.
“Everything is on the table as far as options,” Gettleman said. “We’ll listen to everybody.”
Gettleman added that they have a number of highly graded prospects this year, which could lead to them seriously considering a move down the board to acquire more draft picks.
“There are a lot of high-graded players,” Gettleman said. “I’ll tell you that right up front. I’m excited to see where the board ends up. It’s a pretty strong draft. It really is.”
