Joe Schoen has countless people guessing what he might end up doing with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Will the NY Giants trade up for a new star quarterback, stand pat and bring in Malik Nabers, or trade down and add more capital? Your guess is as good as ours!

With the buzz growing that the G-Men could make a move for either Drake Maye, J.J. McCarthy or Jayden Daniels, one former general manager thinks Schoen should bring in more talent for Danny Dimes instead. That's right, former Vikings GM Rick Spielman spoke with The 33rd Team's Ari Meirov and said Schoen and Co. can't bring in a new QB with their top pick. Do fans agree?

Is someone going to tell Spielman that John Mara has already given Schoen and head man Brian Daboll the green light to bring in a new QB early on in the draft if they're high enough on a prospect? Mara indeed said he's not going to get in the way of Schoen bringing in a Jones replacement.

If you ask Spielman, though, he thinks the Giants must back Jones with some talent instead of giving up on him one year after giving him his $160 million extension. With the Giants holding the No. 6 pick, they're expected to have their pick of Nabers or Rome Odunze.

At the same time, it would not be a total shocker if Ohio State wideout Marvin Harrison Jr. ends up falling to the G-Men either - it really depends what the Cardinals and Chargers end up doing at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.

The Giants went 6-11 last season and Jones somehow only finished with two touchdown passes during his limited time on the field. He suffered his neck injury against the Dolphins and then tore his ACL vs. Las Vegas. From the moment he went down in Sin City, countless fans have been calling for Schoen to bring in a long-term replacement.

This could end up happening come draft night, but again, Spielman thinks that'd be a major mistake, as he thinks Big Blue should give Danny Dimes one more chance to prove he can live up to his contract. Will that happen? With the draft around the corner, we're about to find out.
