Robbins/Getty ImagesThe NFL is often called a copycat league. Someone comes up
with an idea — a play, a scheme, a formation, a style — that works and other
teams try to implement their own versions. Thus, the success of the New Orleans
Saints in taking an athletic college quarterback, Taysom Hill, and turning him
into a multi-faceted offensive weapon who can be used running B.J. Hill Jersey , receiving and throwing is something other teams would like to duplicate.The New York Giants, with undrafted former Syracuse quarterback
Eric Dungey in the hybrid role, are one of the teams trying to find their own
version of Hill. Let’s look closer at Dungey as we continue profiling the 90
players the Giants will bring to training camp.The basicsHeight: 6-foot-3Weight:
220Age: 22Position: QB/TEExperience: 0How he got hereIn a year considered to be
a down one for the overall quarterback class, Dungey was not one of the 11
quarterbacks deemed draft-worthy by NFL teams. The Giants, though, wanted Dungey
badly enough that head coach Pat Shurmur got on the phone to try and entice him
to choose the Giants.“He was a key guy, a guy that we targeted Womens Kyle Lauletta Jersey ,” Shurmur said.The pitch worked:For what it’s worth, here is a statistical comparison of the college careers of Dungey and
Hill.Passing Dungey Year School G Cmp Att Pct Yds TD Int

outlook So, now the question is can Dungey make the transition?“He is a very
accomplished quarterback and made a lot of plays with his feet,” Shurmur said.
“We will see. I think he is a good football player. Usually there is a place on
the field for good football players. We will see what happens.”At just 220
pounds and never having blocked before, a traditional tight end role is likely
out of the question for Dungey. To be honest, it’s probably unrealistic to
expect Dungey to push for a spot on the 53-man roster initially. Hill took a
full year in New Orleans to learn the role, and was an impact player in his
second season.Perhaps that should be the template for Dungey. If he shows
promise in the hybrid role Alec Ogletree Jersey , a practice squad spot in 2019 would seem logical as he learns the finer points of what the Giants are asking him to do.
Quarterback Kyler Murray is so committed to football that he’s committed to
embracing whichever team selects him in the 2019 draft.“At the end of this, it’s
an opportunity to go play football,” Murray told reporters on Friday. “Wherever
I land, they’re getting a guy that loves this game and is ready to go. I’m a
winner. I think that’s where my mind’s at.”He said that his mind isn’t on being
the first quarterback drafted.“I’m not going into it with any expectations of if
this guy goes before me, I’m going to be upset,” Murray said. “No, I’m going to
be happy wherever I go.”Murray apparently would be extra happy to go to the
Giants http://www.giantslockerroom.com/authentic-jonathan-stewart-jersey , the team that holds the sixth pick in the draft and that keeps referring to the
Kansas City model, a reference to the decision to draft a quarterback now, ride
with the veteran starter for one more year, and then flip the switch to the new
guy.“If that was the case, I would love to be in that situation,” Murray said
regarding the possibility of being drafted by the Giants. “I’d love to be in New
York. But at the end of the day, like I said Youth Carl Banks Jerseys , I don’t pick myself.”That’s a reality common to all incoming NFL draft picks. The difference for Murray, however, comes from the
fact that he has a very real option: He can choose to play baseball, regardless
of whether he’s currently saying that he has closed that door for good.
