Mock Draft Tracker 7.0: Pre-combine picks for Giants

MOCK-DRAFT-TRACKER-7

Indianapolis is the center of the football universe this week.

Each year at this time, hundreds of draft prospects gather there for the ultimate job interview known as the NFL Scouting Combine. What happens in Indy will surely shake up draft boards around the league. For now, here's a look at the latest projections for the Giants, who hold the sixth overall pick:

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah released his updated ranking of the top 50 prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Pick: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Analysis: "I wouldn't rule out the Giants trying to move up for a quarterback, but in this scenario, Daniels falls into their lap."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "They have too many Nos. 2 and 3 receivers. Odunze, who caught 92 passes for 1,640 yards and 13 touchdowns last season, could be their No. 1 guy."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "With his size/speed profile and ability to play through contact, Odunze is a quarterback-friendly target with the tools to be a legitimate No. 1 option. The Giants haven't had a 1,000-yard receiver since 2018, but Odunze might change that as a rookie."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "The Giants can land the most explosive player in the draft with Nabers, the former LSU star who plays at a warp speed that no defender can match. This would provide a huge boost to a Giants offense that had the second-fewest passing yards in the NFL last season and just 44 passing plays of 20-plus yards (better than just six other teams in the league). Nabers is a massive play waiting to happen, both with his vertical speed to stretch the field on deep shots and with his run-after-catch ability. He averaged 120.7 yards per game last season and caught 14 TDs."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "At 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, Odunze is a physical and aggressive player before and after the catch. He's a dominant option on both back-shoulder fades and breaking routes. No matter who is throwing the ball, Odunze would immediately boost the Giants' offense."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "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."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "The Giants must surround Daniel Jones with more playmakers in order for the well-compensated quarterback to thrive in a make-or-break year."

Pick: Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

Analysis: "Fuaga is one of the finest pass protectors in the draft and some see him as a guard/tackle. He gives the Giants flexibility with where they'll play Evan Neal."

Pick: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

Analysis: "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."

Pick: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

Analysis: "Alt played only left tackle for Notre Dame but is a very natural athlete who possesses the coordination to play on the other side."

Pick: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Analysis: "No player did more for their draft stock in the fall than Jayden Daniels, who went from possible Day 3 pick to first-round prospect."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Malik Nabers adds much-needed explosiveness, reliability and big-play ability for a group that has lacked all of those traits from a wide receiver in some time."

Pick: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Analysis: "Daniels is a true dual-threat quarterback who throws one of the best deep balls in the entire draft. With this selection, there should be fireworks in New York."

Pick: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Analysis: "[Whoever] is under center would have two of the most athletic specimens at the tight end position and they can share the field along with Brian Daboll's play-calling."

Pick: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Analysis: "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."

Pick: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Analysis: "The Giants simply go best player available, and in Bowers they get a three-down tight end who has a direct positive impact on the quarterback for the Giants."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Upgrading the offense has to be a priority this offseason."

Pick: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Analysis: "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."

Pick: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Analysis: "We're already seeing Marvin Harrison Jr.'s draft stock drop a little bit with more people supporting guys like Rome Odunze and Keon Coleman, but New York's fine with that. Whether you think Harrison is the best receiver or not, one thing's for sure: the kid can ball."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "The speedy Malik Nabers would be a great addition to an offense that is in major need of playmakers."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Nabers' raw speed is still an understated part of his game, but don't be surprised to see a 40 time around 4.40 seconds or faster."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "[Jayden] Daniels' primary target the past two seasons in Baton Rouge, Nabers really blossomed during a 2023 All-American campaign when he caught 89 balls for 1,569 yards and 14 TDs."

Pick: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Analysis: "He played through injuries in 2023 and still flashed dominance. Even with Darren Waller on the roster, Bowers makes so much sense in New York."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "Odunze is my WR2 by the slimmest of margins. In fact, his contested-catch ability, as well as his body control, ranks in the top 20 percentile in a 10-season sample. I also cannot believe my models didn't choose an O-lineman here either, as it is an area of big need. That should tell you how much my evaluations love Odunze."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Nabers doesn't have the route tree of Marvin Harrison or Rome Odunze, but he's lightning-fast, has excellent hands, and is just as effective on the outside as in the slot."

Pick: Jared Verse, Edge, Florida State

Analysis: "Will Anderson Jr.'s production dropped in his final year at Alabama (34.5 tackles for loss, 17.5 sacks to 17 and 10) but he proved his combination of power and speed was NFL-ready. I expect to see the same from Verse, who was no less of a problem for offensive lines in 2023 than he was in the previous season, even if his numbers were slightly less impressive in '23 (17 TFL, 9 sacks in '22; 12.5 and 9 in '23)."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "If the Giants are going to run it back with Daniel Jones, they might as well give him a true No. 1 wide receiver for the first time in his career. Nabers has the talent to give the G-Men an element they have missed since Odell Beckham Jr.'s heyday."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "In most drafts, Malik Nabers would be the clear-cut No. 1 WR and a lock to be a top-five pick. But in this draft, he's not even the second pass-catcher off the board. But the New York Giants get a steal at No. 6 with Nabers, who isn't that far off from Marvin Harrison Jr. in the class. Nabers can be a bonafide No. 1 receiver for New York, which it has been missing since trading away Odell Beckham Jr."
