Trade rumors are heating up, and it sounds as if the Giants are the team most interested in acquiring this pick for Manning. Our sources tell us the Chargers would gladly make the deal for a second-round pick this year and another second-round pick in 2005. If that's the case, the Chargers would move down to the No. 4 pick overall and probably wind up with Miami- Ohio's Ben Roethlisberger, who we hear coach Marty Schottenheimer is most intrigued with, anyway. However, if the Chargers wind up selecting first overall, there would be too much pressure after the Ryan Leaf disaster for them not to draft Manning, widely considered the safest of the three elite quarterback prospects in this year's class.
