Which Would You Prefer to See Happen?

I posted this on Twitter, but let's see what you folks think as well.

If the Giants traded away one of their first-round picks but got a bounty of picks in return, would you be happy they’re preparing for the future or upset that they didn’t cash in on grabbing two potential top playmakers?

With lowered expectations for the coming year, I wouldn't mind seeing the Giants load up on draft choices this year. Of course, they would need to really have an excellent draft. With the possibility of having a lot of cap space next year, giving the 2022 draft class a year to grow into professionals, then adding a few proven vets (not vets on the downside of their careers) , would seem to be the best course of action. I'd like to see the Giants set themselves up for sustained success, and if it means growing pains for the coming season, so be it. What's discouraging is when you experience growing pains with no hope of growing (see recent seasons). Although it may seem as though I'm giving up on the coming season, I'm not. I believe the new management team is doing things the correct way, and the Giants will see improvement from the past few years (admittedly, the bar has not been set too high). Expecting the new GM and coaches to completely turn around the mess they inherited in one year is just not being realistic. I do think that with a strong draft class this year and next, major improvement will be seen quicker than we're used to seeing it.

I would not mind if they kept one of their first-rounders and traded back or traded for a future first-rounder (and more) for their second first this year. Acquire picks and build for the future.
Just make sure you nail that first-round pick!

Surely trading out of either 5 or 7 should include a swap of 2022 firsts. So, for example, if there's a trade with Pittsburgh, the Giants, almost assuredly will get the Steelers pick at 20, in addition to a slew of other picks.

Personally, I think we've seen enough of Danny Dimes. Not every QB gets an ideal situation. I'm tired of the OL excuses for his mediocre play. So, I'm all for trading back as long as the trade down includes a 2023 1st round pick to lay the groundwork for Danny's replacement.
