You know how bad a draft pick has to be for the Game of Thrones author to rip you for it?
“Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin recently took some time out of his very busy schedule to deliver instant 2019 NFL Draft analysis on his two favorite teams: the Jets and Giants.
“Lots of analysts had ranked him as the best player in the entire draft, so he seems a good get,” wrote Martin.”Still… if it had been me, I would have taken Josh Allen, the edge rusher… They already had a monster defensive tackle named Williams (Leonard). Now they have two. I hope it works out. The main thing is to give Tom Brady nightmares.”
Not bad analysis there, but now it was time to take on the New York Giants and what they did.
Martin wasn’t too happy with what Gettleman did with the #6 pick in the draft.
Wrote Martin: “Daniel Jones from Duke at number six? (General manager) Dave Gettleman must have seen something in Jones that no one else could see. But even if you accept that, taking him at six seems insane. He would have been there at 17.”
Martin wasn’t the only Giants fan who was highly upset with the pick as many videos flooded social media showing fans losing their minds immediately after the selection was announced.
