Via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the knowledge of the top of their draft board was limited to CEO Christopher Johnson, General Manager Mike Maccagnan and Bowles, and the team went to extraordinary measures to keep it that way.
Maccagnan said the night of the draft he wouldn鈥檛 reveal where he had guys ranked, and ultimately it doesn鈥檛 matter, as Darnold was clearly no worse than second, and fell into his lap when the Giants took running back Saquon Barkley.

I was surprised when they took a quarterback because I thought that, maybe in the third round, you know you can get some really good football players that can help this team now, Roethlisberger said. And nothing against Mason. I think he鈥檚 a great football player. I don鈥檛 know him personally, but I鈥檓 sure he鈥檚 a great kid. I just don鈥檛 know how backing up or being the third guy, well, who knows where he鈥檚 going to fall on the depth chart, helps us win now.
But, you know, that鈥檚 not my decision to make. That鈥檚 on the coaches and the G.M. and the owner and those kind of things. So if they feel like he can help our team so be it. But I was a little surprised.
