Predicting 5 big NY Giants moves after giving Daniel Jones his mega-deal
3. Use the 2023 first-round pick on a WR1 for the future
For a while now, you’ve probably seen countless wide receivers linked with the Giants for the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft. At this point, it’d feel like a bit of a stunner if Schoen didn’t use his No. 25 overall pick on a speed wideout, especially after signing Jones to his mega-deal. Jones needs help with some new WRs to play with.
Outside of Isaiah Hodgins last year – a player added in early November – there was no consistent play from the NY WRs in 2022. Darius Slayton still recorded some untimely drops, Kadarius Toney was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs, Kenny Golladay will be released on March 15, Wan’Dale Robinson tore his ACL… the list goes on.
Luckily in the draft, there are several first-round options for Schoen to consider. From our chair, we would absolutely love to see TCU’s Quentin Johnston make his way to Big Blue. He’s a 6-4, 215-pounder with an insane amount of potential. However, he may not be available when Schoen is on the clock.
The same can be said for Jordan Addison. With that said, guys like Zay Flowers, Jalin Hyatt and even Rashee Rice could be there for the taking. Of those three, Flowers could be the most intriguing.
