NY has the second-overall pick in this year's draft.
Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, and Wyoming's Josh Allen are among the top quarterback prospects in the draft, but if the Giants are looking for a first-round quarterback, they might not get their choice of the field.
Manning is optimistic, and believes there is no reason the Giants can't be successful this season with new general manager Dave Gettleman rebuilding the roster, Shurmur as coach and him at quarterback.
Informed he might be breaking those rules, Manning quickly interjected: "No, I'll do everything by the book".
"Had it with the plays written on the screen to learn some of the terminology and put it all together and see the speed you have to run it, " Manning said. "I'd be grateful for any organization that would give me a chance to lead them to Ws".
Tottenham Hotspur complete signing of winger Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain
The Argentine had been looking to sign the Brazilian for a number of weeks and finally got the deal over the line on deadline day. Moura has been capped 34 times for Brazil and won the 2013 Confederations Cup and a silver medal at the London Olympics in 2012.
The team's decision-makers have indicated that they want Eli Manning to return as quarterback for 2018, but they have not ruled out drafting a quarterback with that No. 2 pick to eventually take his place. "It's about doing your job but also helping the other guys around you and having great communication in the quarterback room has always been important to me". My job is to play quarterback.
"It's not your job to mentor somebody, but I wouldn't look at it as that role". "I've got to go out there and compete and win games".
Eli Manning is well aware that he's inching closer toward the end of his career. He threw just 19 touchdown passes and had 18 turnovers as the Giants finished 3-13.
