If the NY Giants and general manager Joe Schoen hang on to their No. 6 overall pick and don't move up or down in the order, it feels like wide receiver would make the most sense for them. If either Jayden Daniels or J.J. McCarthy falls to No. 6, then yes, go with a quarterback.

However, it seems like both those guys will be off the board and Schoen will have to move to Plan B. That doesn't mean he won't be able to land a playmaker, as both stud receivers Malik Nabers and Rome Odunze should be there for the taking. In his latest mock draft, The Athletic's Bruce Feldman has made the call, as he has the Giants rockin' with Odunze over Nabers.

"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."

Odunze is a certified baller and he's going to make a fanbase very happy once he hears his name called on April 25. Will it be the Giants who bring him to town? That move would make sense for a ton of reasons, of course including the fact that this team needs a WR1.

Daniel Jones would be elated if Odunze dons a Giants jersey next season, as he'd finally have a stud WR to throw to. Odunze would immediately become a top target for Jones, assuming he's healthy enough to start the season following his torn ACL in Week 9 vs. the Raiders.

Nabers' buzz has grown this offseason, especially after he looked fantastic at his LSU Pro Day. Similar to Odunze, he's a beast with the ball in his hands - this past season, Nabers posted 89 receptions for 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns.

The Giants and Schoen really can't go wrong with either of these guys. People are going back and forth on who the G-Men should take if they stay put at No. 6 overall. It won't be an easy decision, but Feldman likes the UW's standout over Nabers in this case. Hard to argue with him there.
