Mock Draft Tracker 12.0: Draft month is here

MOCK-DRAFT-TRACKER-12

The first wave of free agency has passed, and now the NFL has entered the home stretch of this year's draft preparation.

The Giants rang in the new league year by obtaining two-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker Brian Burns in a trade with the Panthers, sending them a 2024 second-round draft choice (No. 39) and a 2025 fifth-round selection and agreeing to a swap of fifth rounders this year (the Giants getting No. 166 and sending No. 141 to Carolina).

Because of that deal and others across the league, the 2024 NFL Draft order had to be adjusted accordingly. The Giants now hold six picks heading into annual selection meeting, which is scheduled for April 25-27 in Detroit.

Below is the Giants' full 2024 NFL Draft order:

  • Round 1 – No. 6
  • Round 2 – No. 47 (from SEA)
  • Round 3 – No. 70
  • Round 4 – No. 107
  • Round 5 – No. 166 (from SF through CAR)
  • Round 6 – No. 183

Now here's a look at the latest projections as they come in:

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

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "I wouldn't rule out the Giants trading up for a quarterback this year. If they stick and pick at No. 6, adding Nabers' playmaking ability would be a good move."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "This would make back-to-back-to-back quarterbacks at the top of the board, and then back-to-back-to-back wideouts right after that. That's how loaded these groups are."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "General manager Joe Schoen won't be able to hide his smile if Nabers is still available at No. 6. Regardless of who's playing quarterback for the Giants, this offense drastically needs a true X receiver who changes how defenses game plan against it. Nabers is that, and more."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Nabers is the best YAC weapon in the class and could pair well with Wan'Dale Robinson, Jalin Hyatt, Darren Waller (possibly) and the rest of Big Blue's pass-catching group."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Nabers averaged 17.6 yards per catch (10th among FBS receivers with at least 50 catches) and forced 27 missed tackles (sixth overall) last season; he can beat defenders with his vertical speed down the field or take a short throw and turn it into a massive gain in a hurry. The Giants have worked hard this offseason to fortify the offensive line, but a game-altering wideout is still very much needed."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "His 120.7 yards per game led the nation, and his 3.7 yards per route run were second best among all FBS pass-catchers."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "He is sure-handed and can beat coverage in multiple ways. His aggressive "my ball" mentality helped him tie for the most contested catches (24) in the FBS last season, routinely hauling in passes in tight coverage."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Nabers is a catch-and-run specialist who can score from anywhere on the field."

Pick: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

Analysis: "Latham is my top tackle in this draft."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "I still feel that this is a prime spot for Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy, but after acquiring Drew Lock to provide insurance behind Daniel Jones, the Giants opt for the WR1 they desperately need."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "There isn't an area on the field where Odunze doesn't win, and he can beat corners with every tool in the toolbox—speed, size, quickness, technique, and physicality. He's the total package who would be the first wide receiver off the board in any other draft."

Pick: Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

Analysis: "Despite Penix's injury history, the Giants feel good about the Heisman runner-up's arm strength, vision and ability to get through his progressions."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "The 6-foot-3, 212-pound Odunze isn't quite as fast as Nabers, but he is really explosive. The former track standout from Las Vegas clocked a 4.45 40 at the combine with a 1.52 10-yard split, a 39-inch vertical and a 4.03 shuttle time. His film is even more impressive than his workout numbers. Last season, he had 92 catches for 1,640 yards and 13 touchdowns. Everyone who has been around him comes away impressed. His ball skills are truly elite."

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: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "Odunze rounds out a three-quarterback, three-receiver start to this mock draft, giving the Giants a potential true No. 1 wide receiver. Odunze dropped just 3.2% of the catchable passes thrown his way this past season, while his 2.93 yards per route run average ranked eighth among his classmates."

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "The Giants will be in the trade-up market for a quarterback, but if they stick at No. 6, I think it's a receiver over an offensive lineman since they brought in a few veterans in free agency to give them good flexibility at tackle and guard. From what I have heard, Odunze has been acing interviews on top of his excellent NFL scouting combine performance. His size would add something new to the Giants' starting receiver lineup."

Pick: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Analysis: "If the Giants miss out on the top QBs, this is the next-best scenario."

Pick: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Analysis: "Best-case scenario for the Giants, who stand pat and have Marvin Harrison Jr. fall in their laps."

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 player who has some high-end athletic traits that should get Brian Daboll excited to work with and get this New York offense headed in the right direction."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "OT or WR? With four QBs selected in front of them, the Giants must select an impact player to help elevate Daniel Jones. Malik Nabers will give him a dynamic and explosive run-after-catch threat to pair with Darren Waller and the rest of their weapons. A new potential WR1–OBJ 2.0?"

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: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

Analysis: "Alt is a tall, highly athletic blocker with multiple years of steady production at the offensive line factory that is Notre Dame. Smart move here by New York."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

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

Pick: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Analysis: "New York has to figure out their future at QB, but Rome Odunze would immediately provide a WR1 for either Daniel Jones or Drew Lock. He sits hip-to-hip with Marvin Harrison Jr. on a few teams' boards."

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: J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Analysis: "Yes, despite his relatively low usage in the passing game at Ann Arbor – where he was surrounded by a tremendous supporting cast on both sides of the ball – his stock seems to continue skyrocketing. Why? Demeanor, accuracy, leadership, athleticism, high ceiling, good decision-making. And he's a winner (27-1 record with the Wolverines)."

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: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

Analysis: "Alt is a franchise cornerstone left tackle who will benefit the entire offense for a decade."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Nabers' game is quite similar to that of former Bayou Bengal Odell Beckham Jr., so Giants fans should appreciate his toughness, strong hands and top-notch route running."

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 nearly any other draft class, Malik Nabers would be the first receiver drafted and a lock to be a top-five pick. But because of Harrison Jr., he "slides" to No. 6. It's very reminiscent of when Julio Jones fell to No. 6 in the 2011 NFL Draft because A.J. Green was selected at No. 4 by the Bengals."

Pick: Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State

Analysis: "The Giants could easily go and get Malik Nabers and add a true playmaking WR here to help Daniel Jones on the outside. Instead, they take OT2 and add more help in the trenches. You can't throw the ball if you can't protect, and the Giants understand that with the selection of Olu Fashanu in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Nabers combines his big-play ability with a physicality needed in the Giants' receiving room."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Nabers averaged 17.6 yards on 89 receptions in his final season with the Tigers."

Pick: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "The Giants aren't trying to hide their potential interest in this quarterback class, but we're going to fade the noise there and have them take an elite wide receiver prospect who would be touted as the WR1 in about 95% of draft classes. The Giants have needed a player with Nabers' skill set for almost a decade."

Pick: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Analysis: "Giants may have interest in a quarterback, but getting one of the top receivers to play alongside Darius Slayton and Jalin Hyatt would be a major win for Brian Daboll. Whether Daniel Jones is the long-term answer or not, the quarterback of the Giants in 2025 will be set up very nicely."
