Lev said: This was the game plan for Big Blue … If Dom took anyone other than Sam Darnold with the first pick, we would snatch him. If Dom took Darnold, we would pivot to North Carolina State edge rusher Bradley Chubb — not Barkley. With Barkley going first, Darnold became the pick and the heir apparent to Eli Manning, who’s 37 years old and in the twilight of his career.
