There's only one way you can look at this pick and say it was a good fit, and it's if you're a Giants fan and realize that you got another first round quarterback on your roster.Eli Manning was the first overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft and backup quarterback David Carr was the first overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft.Ryan Nassib was projected to be a first round selection but dropped all the way down to the fourth round.There are a couple of reasons why this is bad for Ryan Nassib.Reason No. 1: No Playing TimeLet's face it, Eli Manning hasn't missed a start since 2004 and even if he were out, David Carr is going to be the first player to replace him. Carr understands the playbook and has been backing up Manning for years. It's horrible thinking about how this young kid had the chance to live out his dream to start in the NFL, but now he's just going to sit on the bench until his contract expires. Even if David Carr and the New York Giants can't come up with a deal at the end of this season, Ryan Nassib will only be the replacement backup quarterback. Nassib has to hope that Carr leaves the Giants so he can play second fiddle.Don't get me wrong, you have more chances at seeing game time as the second string quarterback instead of the third string, but Carr has been backup for five seasons and has only played in 11 games. In the past two seasons, Carr has played two games and thrown three passes. If you're Nassib, you are not excited about that much playing time.Also, every NFL fan knows that a young, new athlete needs plenty of playing time to develop, but Nassib is now robbed of that. He's not going to get a shot until Manning is injured and Carr is either off the roster or injured as well. Reason No. 2: Bad Chances of Moving Before Contract ExpiresNot many trades are pulled off in the NFL for starting quarterbacks, and even if they are, the Giants aren't usually the type of team to participate in those types of transactions. The Giants moved up in the draft specifically to get Nassib as their long-term backup, so it's unlikely that they'll entertain too many trade proposals anyway. It's a good move for the Giants, but it's a pretty bad when you consider how Nassib's career will go from this point out.Reason No. 3: Broken DreamsIf you look at this pick from Nassib's point of view, you can see how it's not hard to understand why he wouldn't be excited about this. He does have a good chance of getting a Super Bowl ring with the Giants, but these NFL quarterbacks have always dreamt of being the ones to hold up the Lombardi Trophy if front of thousands of screaming fans and being the main focus in the parade.Also, this time last week he probably expected first-round pick type of money, but it's obviously not what he's going to make now.He also has to deal with the fact that he was told all offseason that he'll probably be off the board before most teams get a chance to pick but instead, most teams got to pass on him three times over two days. I think it'll be hard to get a kid motivated who has just gone through all of this within a couple of days.For more NFL updates and insight, follow me on twitter @AnoopKat  or check out my other articles on Football Nation
