Ryan Nassib will get the majority of second-team reps in training camp.
Nassib worked with the second-team throughout OTAs, so it confirms he'll enter camp ahead of Curtis Painter. A 2013 fourth-round pick, Nassib hasn't shown much in terms of development to this point. The Giants typically only keep two quarterbacks. Nassib will need to win the backup job to avoid getting cut. Jun 27 - 6:53 PM

Second-year QB Ryan Nassib opened OTAs as the Giants' second-string quarterback, behind Eli Manning.

Eli quarterbacked the ones, Nassib the twos, and Josh Freeman and Curtis Painter handled the rest. The 110th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Nassib completed 7-of-19 throws for 114 yards in his rookie preseason, absorbing five sacks. He's going to have to show improvement to hold off Freeman behind Eli.

ESPN New York believes Ryan Nassib will have to win the No. 2 quarterback job to keep his roster spot.

The Giants only like to keep two quarterbacks, so Nassib will have to hold off Curtis Painter and Josh Freeman. If he loses out, Nassib isn't going to be worth keeping as a developmental third-stringer. Nassib struggled in three preseason games last year and needs to perform well in training camp to avoid getting cut.

GM Jerry Reese wouldn't rule out trading QB Ryan Nassib during next week's draft.

The Giants haven't been bashful about adding to their quarterback stable this offseason. They typically only carry two on their final 53-man roster, yet they currently have five (Eli Manning, Josh Freeman, Curtis Painter, Rusty Smith, Nassib). Of course, Nassib isn't going to attract any real attention on the trade market. His most likely destination is battling to be Eli's backup in August.

The Star-Ledger suggests the Giants could assess Ryan Nassib's trade value ahead of the draft.

Nassib failed to move past Curtis Painter as a rookie and now the Giants have added Josh Freeman. They're not showing a ton of faith in his development. That said, if Ryan Mallett and Kirk Cousins can't fetch much on the trade market, the Giants will likely find crickets if they try to shop Nassib. Perhaps they'll carry three quarterbacks on the final roster for the first time in recent memory.

The New York Daily News reports the Giants are "committed to giving" Ryan Nassib a chance to win the No. 2 quarterback job.

The Giants have been mentioned as a potential landing spot for Mark Sanchez. GM Jerry Reese used a fourth-round pick on Nassib last April and isn't ready to throw in the towel on him so quickly like Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie did with Tyler Wilson. Nassib doesn't have a plus arm by any means, but offers a lightning-quick release and can make short-to-intermediate throws with precision.

Giants signed fourth-round QB Ryan Nassib to a four-year contract.

Nassib, the 110th pick, went after Matt Barkley and before Tyler Wilson in the fourth round of April's draft. A three-year starter at Syracuse, Nassib has mediocre arm strength but possesses a quick release and impressive short-to-intermediate accuracy. He's a borderline starting-caliber NFL talent.

Giants GM Jerry Reese believes fourth-round pick Ryan Nassib has similar traits to Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.

Like Dalton, Nassib has mediocre arm strength and is probably a borderline starting-caliber NFL talent. "We like the accuracy about him," said Reese. "We like that 'it' factor on him. When I first watched him he reminded me of the QB at Cincinnati that played at TCU." Reese confirmed the Giants selected Nassib at No. 110 overall because "we pick the highest guy on the board."

SI's Peter King reports new Giants QB Ryan Nassib was "wounded" by the Bills' decision not to draft him.

The Bills touted new coach Doug Marrone's college quarterback through back channels for months, only to spurn him in favor of E.J. Manuel. It was the most believable pre-draft smokescreen in an offseason full of them. It was the right approach from a football standpoint, but highly regrettable from a human one.

Giants GM Jerry Reese said he hopes new quarterback Ryan Nassib "never plays."

Reese considers 32-year-old Eli Manning to be in his prime. He hopes to develop Nassib as a long-term backup that could yield some trade fruit down the line. "We've been thinking about developing a quarterback behind Eli for a while now," Reese said. "We think this is a perfect opportunity for us to get a young quarterback with a lot of talent. The value was too high for us." Nassib has a great shot to beat out David Carr for the backup job as a rookie.

Giants traded up to select Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib with the No. 110 overall pick, sending Nos. 116 and 187 to the Cardinals.

Projected by many to come off the board at No. 8 overall, Nassib settles for a competition with David Carr to be Eli Manning's backup. Nassib (6-foot-2 1/8, 227) was a three-year starter in Doug Marrone's shotgun-heavy, up-tempo Syracuse offense, completing 60.3 percent of his passes with a 70:28 TD-to-INT ratio. Rated the No. 1 quarterback in this class by draft gurus Russ Lande and Greg Cosell, Nassib flashes NFL-quality anticipation and can drive the ball at the intermediate level. He is the draft's most accurate passer, and has the quickest release. Nassib's big negatives are his tendency to become frenetic in the pocket and let his deep ball sail.

The Patriots will enter Friday night's portion of the NFL Draft with a league-high four second-day draft picks.

The draft's "second day" now encompasses rounds two and three, with compensatory selections at the end of the third round. The Patriots entered the draft with just five overall selections, but expanded their pocketbook to eight after trading down with the Vikings, who selected Cordarrelle Patterson toward the end of round one. Our day-two mock draft is accessible at the link below.

While text messaging with NFL executives, Yahoo's Jason Cole received three conflicting responses regarding what the Bills will do at the No. 8 overall pick.

It's more confirmation that no one knows what's happening in the draft -- not even the teams themselves. "Trade down to right spot for (Geno) Smith," one executive texted. "They want (Ryan) Nassib," said another. "Hearing (Matt) Barkley in Buffalo," added a third. We feel somewhat confident Buffalo's true target is Nassib, but nothing is certain. We'll find out in less than six hours.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Total Access the Jaguars "are taking" Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib if he's available at No. 33.

We previously mentioned whispers of this. Rapport believes -- maybe more accurately knows -- Nassib would be Jacksonville's selection at the top of round two. Nassib isn't going to make it there, though, and rookie GM Dave Caldwell is unlikely to trade up for him while working with just seven picks. The Jags are obviously high on Nassib. They're simply not going to get him.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on NFL 32 that the Bills are "more likely than not" to select Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib at No. 8 overall.

"I think the speculation is on the mark," said Mort. "I think the Buffalo Bills at No. 8 could make Nassib the first quarterback chosen in this draft. ... I think that has a better chance of happening than not." Although some smoke blew recently that the Bills might have a better grade on Matt Barkley than Nassib, the college coaching staff connection is going to be hard for Doug Marrone to resist.
