Giants coach Tom Coughlin stated at the Combine that he sees rising third-year QB Ryan Nassib as an eventual NFL starter.
The 110th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Nassib completed his second preseason with a 59.5 completion rate, 7.9 YPA, and 5:0 TD-to-INT ratio, easily winning the Giants' backup quarterback job. Eli Manning is among the most durable players in football, so Nassib hasn't gotten any meaningful real-game chances. Turning 25 in March, Nassib is an intriguing QB3/4 stash in Dynasty.

Ryan Nassib was the No. 2 quarterback in Friday's regular-season dress rehearsal, completing 8-of-12 passes for 103 yards and three touchdowns.

That should put him ahead of Curtis Painter for good in the battle to back up Eli Manning. Painter didn't play this evening. Nassib is now 38-of-60 for 481 yards (8.01 YPA), five touchdowns and zero interceptions through four preseason games.

Ryan Nassib received the majority of reps with the second-team offense in practice this week.

Nassib played with the third-string offense in last week's preseason game, but his strong performance has him back ahead of Curtis Painter. He's competed 30-of-48 passes (62.5 percent) for 378 yards with two touchdowns and a fumble through three preseason games. Nassib needs to hold off Painter to make the Giants' 53-man roster.

The Newark Star-Ledger believes Giants second-year QB Ryan Nassib is in danger of not making the 53-man roster.

Just last April, he was being talked up as a potential top-ten draft pick. Nassib ended up lasting to the fourth round. He was then believed to be in line to succeed Eli Manning. Now, he may lose his roster spot to Curtis Painter -- the same Painter that has an 0-8 career record and 57.6 passer rating.

The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan said Giants QB Ryan Nassib "was a train wreck during Friday's practice."

"One 8-yard throw to the far side probably missed his receiver by eight yards," Raanan said. "Nassib needs to get it together." The Giants will give every opportunity to a player they spent a fourth-round pick on just one year ago, but Nassib may not have the talent to capitalize. With New York traditionally only keeping two quarterbacks, Nassib is staring into the very real possibility he is cut.

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.

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.
Mon, Apr 29, 2013 10:03:00 AM

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.
