Jayden Daniels

Jayden Daniels is an awesome college quarterback. If not for a terrible defense and three losses, Daniels would be toward the front of the Heisman race. Unfortunately, his ceiling is probably starring at the collegiate level.

Daniels has spent five years in college and has improved every year with arguably his best coming during his swan song. He'll get to enjoy the fruits of his labor being a late-first/early-second round pick. But he's likely to struggle in the NFL and won't be able to prove himself to be "the guy" for a franchise. Like McCarthy, Daniels would without a doubt be considered a reach if the Giants were to take him with one of their top picks.

They would have to trade down quite a bit to justify a Daniels pick, but given the top of this QB class and where the Giants are as a franchise, Schoen may be fired on the spot if he traded down. Risks aren't always worth it and Daniels would be one this team can't afford. The front office, players and fans wouldn't want this franchise set back another half-decade. The popular picks are usually popular for a reason.
