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. Apr 17 - 9:01 AM

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.

According to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, the Jets will consider a quarterback with an "early choice."

Pauline is presumably referring to the Jets' first-round choices, at No. 9 and 13. ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reported earlier Wednesday that new Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg is "very high" on Syracuse's Ryan Nassib. It could very well be legitimate interest on behalf of a QB-needy team, or a ploy to scare division-rival Buffalo into pulling the trigger on Nassib at No. 8.
Wed, Apr 24, 2013 03:49:00 PM has heard the Bills fear the Jaguars selecting Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib if he slips to the 33rd overall pick.

There have been whispers of Jacksonville's interest in Nassib throughout the pre-draft process, even dating back to January. PFT's intimation is the Bills won't be willing to test their luck and let Nassib last into day two. There is also some fear the Jets will poach Nassib from their division rivals. Ultimately, we tentatively believe Nassib will be Buffalo's selection at No. 8 overall.

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reported on SportsCenter Wednesday that Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg is "very high" on Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib, and the Bills are worried the Jets will poach him.

As Sal Pal alluded to, the Jets "control the first round" to some extent with the Nos. 9 and 13 selections, either or even both of which could be used as trade bait for a coveted player such as Tavon Austin or if a top-five player surprisingly falls. Both the Jets and Bills have QB needs and are very high on Nassib. "I know one thing for sure in talking to people around the league," Paolantonio reported. "The Buffalo Bills want Ryan Nassib. But they're very concerned the Jets will take him later in the first round. So the Bills may be forced to take him at No. 8."
Wed, Apr 24, 2013 09:14:00 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib is "definitely in play" for the Bills at No. 8.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Sunday there was a "growing belief" the Bills would target Doug Marrone's college quarterback in the first round, but that they would prefer to do so via a trade down. Regardless, it's clear the Bills are ready to pull the trigger at No. 8 if they can't engineer a move to a more sensible part of the first round. There are no "sure things" in this year's muddled draft, but Nassib-to-Buffalo is shaping up as one of the surer things.
