New York Teams

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets traded their second pick in the third round (to the Bucs), ending their night. That sets up a big day on Saturday, as they have six choices: One in the fourth round (125), two in the fifth (150, 160), two in the sixth (191, 204) and one in the seventh (224). They wound up trading down twice on Day 2 -- a smart strategy. They need picks to plug holes.

Ben McAdoo has never met Davis Webb. His evaluation was based off film study.

The Giants called Eli Manning to tell him they were selecting a quarterback. A sort of courtesy call.

Giants add QB Davis Webb

Will he be Eli Manning's backup or eventual replacement? Mel Kiper Jr. says the Cal signal-caller has ideal size and arm strength, but also has some accuracy issues.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

This is a good spot for the Giants to look at the quarterback position with Davis Webb. Think development in a pro offense. Webb played in a Air Raid system at Cal and he won't be forced on to the field with Eli Manning as the No.1 in New York.

Davis Webb had to wait for four other quarterbacks to go before getting picked, but his production speaks for itself. Few put up the numbers he did in 2016, though nobody in the country threw it more.

Jerry Reese says Davis Webb has the "best arm in the draft." He has all the tools, a high ceiling and will be a caddie to Eli Manning for a few seasons.

Mike Sando ESPN Senior Writer 

Know an OC who thought highly of Davis Webb for his knowledge of the game, understanding of defenses and pocket ability. Had someone else say Webb and Jared Goff are basically the same as prospects. A GM said he'd probably take Webb over AJ McCarron if given the choice but that pre-draft talk of Webb possibly jumping into the first round was overblown.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Giants add QB Davis Webb, potentially setting themselves up for their post-Eli Manning future. Webb will get a couple or three years, at least, to develop under Ben McAdoo and with the help of Manning.

The Giants found their quarterback in the third round. They selected Cal's Davis Webb with the 87th pick. Webb has all the tools. Some inside the league thought he might go late first round.

Castro's homer ties O's at 11 (0:30)

Yankees 2B Starlin Castro launched a 412-foot homer to left in the ninth inning Friday vs. the Orioles, his third game-tying home run in the ninth inning or later.

The Nationals lost more than a game. In the 9th inning of their 7-5 loss to the Mets, center fielder and leadoff man Adam Eaton had to be carried off the field after appearing to roll his ankle at first base on infield single. Acquired from the White Sox in a December blockbuster trade, Eaton (.291 avg, .392 obp) has been a major spark for the first-place Nats.

ArDarius Stewart led Alabama last season in receiving yards (864), yards per catch (16) and receiving TDs (8) – all of which should be welcome on a Jets offense that ranked 27th in the NFL in passing yards per game (216.6) in 2016.

Some QBs still on the board as well. Davis Webb and Nathan Peterman not selected yet. Worth watching.

Jets get a speedster in ArDarius Stewart
NFL 

Gang Green added some speed with Alabama's Stewart, who is a tough competitor with the burst, determination and top-end speed to produce after the catch.

NFL 

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Stunner: The Jets didn't pick a safety. With the first of two third-round picks, they selected Alabama WR ArDarius Stewart. This is a solid value and it adds another potential weapon to their young receiving corps. Stewart has excellent run-after-the-catch ability, which makes him a nice fit in a West Coast offense.

NFL 

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Some names on the board for the Giants in the third round include OT Antonio Garcia, RBs Wayne Gallman, John Conner and Samaje Perine and DE Derek Rivers. O-line would be nice at 87.

NFL 

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets will be on the clock shortly with the 79th pick after trading down with the Vikings. Another safety? Kidding. There are a couple of interesting quarterbacks on the board – Davis Webb and Nathan Peterman. Don't do it! Don't be surprised if they go wide receiver. Also keep an eye on San Diego State CB Damonte Kazee, who took a pre-draft visit.
