Teams Inquiring About Giants’ No. 6 Pick; Team Asserts Confidence in Daniel Jones

Published on


This draft could have a significant impact on the future of the Giants, particularly in terms of the partnership between Joe Schoen and Brian Daboll. The team has been diligently evaluating quarterbacks, with extensive meetings with Drake Maye, J.J. McCarthy, and Jayden Daniels.

Rumors have linked the Giants to Maye and McCarthy, but the team maintains that Daniel Jones is on track to return as the starting quarterback. However, a potential move up in the draft for a quarterback could complicate matters, as other teams like the Vikings, Broncos, and Raiders are also exploring similar options. Moving up from the No. 6 overall pick would likely signal the end of Jones’ tenure as the starter, as the team could easily part ways with him in 2025.

Internal concerns about Jones’ health have been raised, but Schoen denies reports of buyer’s remorse regarding Jones’ contract. As the draft approaches, Jones’ future as the Giants’ starter remains uncertain.

There is an expectation in the NFL that four quarterbacks could be selected within the top four picks for the first time. With the Giants potentially needing to move up for Maye or McCarthy due to other teams’ interests, the upcoming draft could be crucial for the team.

Recent reports suggest that Maye is the more likely target for the Giants, but any potential trade may depend on the Commanders’ decision regarding Daniels. The Patriots and Cardinals are open to trading down in the draft, but no imminent moves have been reported.

I don’t think anyone is ready to move right now,” Schoen stated. “I know people are listening. We’ll all do that, from teams behind us or moving up. Those exploratory talks and conversations will happen here shortly. … Those conversations will happen, over the next 42 or 78 hours those will start happening. You’ll get a feel for who is open to moving and who is no.

Surprisingly, there has been interest in the Giants’ No. 6 pick from other teams. If the Giants choose not to trade up for a quarterback, they could address their receiver needs and potentially select a player like Marvin Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers, or Rome Odunze. Despite calls to trade down, the Giants are considering their options for the draft.

Surprisingly at 6, we’ve gotten a lot of calls from people behind us,” Schoen mentioned. “I didn’t think I would have as much as activity from 6 from people behind me as we’ve gotten. So those are options too as we look at: If we go back, how far back do we want to go?

Selecting a wide receiver at No. 6 could alleviate pressure on Jones, who has not had a 1,000-yard receiver since Odell Beckham Jr. in 2018. The Giants have also considered quarterbacks like Bo Nix and Spencer Rattler, with the possibility of drafting one in the second round.

Regardless of the draft outcome, Jones will face competition from newly drafted quarterbacks. His status as the starter and his future with the Giants might depend on the decisions made in the upcoming draft.
