New York Giants Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft, we will update our New York Giants Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the New York Giants from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Giants:

The Draft Network - Ryan Fowler (1/14)

6. Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

The quicker New York moves on from Daniel Jones, the quicker they'll get back on the track toward relevancy. Jayden Daniels is an electric dual-threat talent with the processing ability to dissect defenses at multiple levels and the linear speed to outrun NFL secondary defenders. He expands a playbook and will keep defensive coordinators up late at night.

San Diego Union-Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/12)

6. Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

The G-Men will definitely be in the quarterback discussion leading up to the draft, but if they decide to give Daniel Jones another shot, they'll need to find him a true No. 1 receiver. Nabers' body control and route-running are top-notch, plus he's elite after the catch and a terror in the open field.

The 33rd Team - Marcus Mosher (1/12)

6. Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

The New York Giants had a lot of success with a certain first-round receiver from LSU before, so why not do it again?

In most drafts, Nabers would be the first receiver off the board. But with Harrison in this class, Nabers "falls" to No. 6. He would give the Giants the bonafide No. 1 receiver they've desperately lacked since trading away Odell Beckham Jr.

NBC Sports - Connor Rogers (1/11)

6. Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

The Giants are only tied to Daniel Jones from a financial perspective for one more season. If they are picking this high again in 2025, there's a chance general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll aren't making that selection.

The point I'm making is there should be some urgency to find an upgrade under center. Daniels' electric running ability and vertical passing is a great fit with Daboll, who unlocked both of those aspects while working with Josh Allen a few years ago in Buffalo.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (1/10)

6. Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

This is a nightmare scenario for the Giants, with all three of the top quarterbacks and both of the top two receivers off the board. Offensive tackle could be an option here, but I don't think GM Joe Schoen is ready to throw in the towel on Evan Neal at right tackle just yet, even though the early returns haven't been promising. Plus, the top two tackles in this class have played only on the left side, where Andrew Thomas lines up for New York.

That leads me to Odunze, who dictates his own route tempos and can make catches in any situation, as evidenced by his FBS-high 1,640 receiving yards this season. He tied for the most contested receptions (24) in the country and had the third-most touchdowns (eight) in those situations. If things play out this way, it would be the first time in the common draft era that three receivers went in the top six picks, per ESPN Stats & Information data.

The Athletic - Nick Baumgardner (1/10)

6. Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

As tempting as this WR class is, the Giants have to give Daniel Jones (or any quarterback who stands back there) more help — again. Alt (6-7, 322) will be OT1 on some boards after a fantastic junior season with the Irish. He still moves like the 220-pound tight end he was in high school.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/9)

6. Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

It's been a rough go for Evan Neal, the No. 7 pick in 2022 who has floundered at right tackle. Maybe Joe Schoen isn't ready to cut bait just yet, but he also shouldn't be dissuaded from looking to make serious improvements to a front as Daniel Jones prepares to return as the starting quarterback in 2024. Alt is about as steady as offensive line prospects come, and he could make for a fine pairing with Andrew Thomas if he can handle flipping to the other side.
