1. QB Daniel Jones
Forget whether or not Daniel Jones is a franchise quarterback or not – there are so many reasons as to why letting Jones go this offseason is not wise. For starters, the Giants are currently set to pick 23rd overall, meaning there is a good chance that no QB will be worth picking in that range.
While there are some potential studs like Anthony Richardson, is it really worth gambling the future of the team when there are so many other needs to be filled? The Giants have possibly the worst LB core in the NFL, putrid receivers, and a weak secondary. We really don’t think it would be wise to draft a QB with how solid Jones has played this season.
Jones has been playing rather well this season considering how dreadful everything is around him. Imagine if the Giants use the cap space and draft picks they have to put a competent offense around him?
Maybe the Giants can let Jones go for a cheaper option like Teddy Bridgewater, but he is really the only feasible option this offseason that would cost less than Jones. It really wouldn’t make any sense at all to let Jones go to bring in a free agent that would likely be worse than the 25 year old.
To put it simply, there are far too many issues on the Giants to worry about other than QB. There’s no reason to jeopardize the structure of the team to draft a rookie who may or may not pan out. In our eyes, the G-Men and Schoen should stick with Danny Dimes.
