Through the first four weeks of the 2023 NFL season, the NY Giants are 1-3, suffering losses to the Dallas Cowboys, San Fransisco 49ers, and recently the Seattle Seahawks. It's pretty clear Big Blue's most significant weaknesses come from their offense, specifically the lack of depth for the offensive line and at wide receiver.
It's too early to tell if the Giants will be contenders or pretenders in January, but if they want a shot, they need to clean up a few things with a demanding schedule ahead. General manager Joe Schoen will have to utilize free agency or the trade market to improve this roster right now. However, it's never too early to start thinking about the franchise's future.
With that said, let's take a look at four potential first-round picks in the 2024 NFL Draft that Giants fans can already start thinking about:
4. Florida State WR Keon Coleman
Although the Giants addressed their wide receiver need this past offseason through free agency and the NFL Draft, the results still need to pay off. The G-Men still need more options that quarterback Daniel Jones can rely on in the passing game. With their poor performance through four weeks, Giants fans have focused on the upcoming draft to correct these reoccurring issues.
One name the G-Men could pursue is Florida State wideout Keon Coleman, who has amassed 17 receptions for 256 yards and six touchdowns in four games with the Seminoles. The Michigan State transfer is a wideout whose size and ability to create after the catch presents a lot of upside of becoming a legitimate option for Danny Dimes in the future.
In Pro Football Focus' quarter-season mock draft, the Giants selected Coleman with the No. 10 overall pick as the second wideout taken off the board behind Ohio State's Marvin Harrison Jr. This would be the first time Big Blue has selected a wide receiver in the first-round since 2021 when they took Kadarius Toney out of Florida.
Coleman would be a stellar pick up for the Giants, who would complement Isaiah Hodgins and Darren Waller very well for this offense. We will have to wait and see if the Schoen and the Giants' front office roll the dice on this Florida State wideout.
