Mock Draft Tracker 8.0: Post-Combine Edition

MOCK-DRAFT-TRACKER-8

The 2024 NFL Scouting Combine is in the books.

Hundreds of draft prospects made the annual trek to Indianapolis in the hopes of showcasing their skills in front of NFL coaches, general managers, and scouts. It is key stop in the pre-draft process as their performances inevitably shake up the draft boards.

With that in mind, 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: 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: "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 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: "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: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

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

Pick: J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Analysis: "In a slight surprise, the Giants grab McCarthy to eventually start over again at QB. He might very well sit behind Daniel Jones in 2024 before getting the ball in 2025."

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: 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: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Analysis: "Offensive line could be a consideration here, but the Giants opt for Nabers, a big-play receiver who is a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball."

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: "The Giants find themselves in the best position possible as they were able to stay patient, didn't give up any draft capital to move up, and drafted their quarterback of the future in Jayden Daniels. Daniels is a true dual-threat quarterback that I believe Brian Daboll will be able to develop and be creative with his play-calling, finally making this Giants offense an exciting one to watch."

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: J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Analysis: "I can't see Joe Schoen leaving this first round without a quarterback. McCarthy has sky-high upside."

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: 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: 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 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."
