Eli: Barkley pick showed Giants' faith in me


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Eli Manning noticed when the New York Giants opted against drafting a quarterback with the No. 2 pick and instead took running back Saquon Barkley.

That decision meant something to the 14-year veteran.

After a down year where Manning’s consecutive games streak was snapped and ego dented, this was a gigantic show of faith. The Giants could have drafted Sam Darnold, Josh Allen or Josh Rosen, all of whom went in the top 10. They could’ve looked to go in other directions as well.
