For someone who is ready to go all-in on supporting NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, Joe Schoen sure seems to be extra busy meeting with potential replacements. Schoen is at the NFL Combine, working overtime as he inches closer to making picks in the NFL Draft.

In Indianapolis, news has already dropped that the young GM is meeting with Caleb Williams and Jayden Daniels, two of the top quarterbacks for the 2024 class. You've got to assume Schoen will meet with Drake Maye too. So, is he trying to tell us something?

Yes, this could be a case of Schoen just doing research on these playmakers, but as much as he claims he believes in Danny Dimes, analysts appear to be convinced that a new QB1 is on the way in late April.

At the Combine, Mike Garafolo put a 76.9 percent chance on Schoen drafting a new stud quarterback in the first round. If Schoen stays at No. 6 overall, there's just no way that Williams, Daniels or Maye will still be available for the G-Men. With the latest update on Williams and Daniels, people are even more convinced a blockbuster trade will be on the way. Others aren't feeling too optimistic:

If Schoen and Brian Daboll are serious about replacing Jones, then they're going to have to move into the Top 3 to land one of the top QB targets. The Bears could be open to sticking with Justin Fields as their signal-caller, but trading the No. 1 overall pick is a rumor flying around as well.

With it being assumed that Williams will hear his name called first, the Giants, or any other team, would have to give up a MASSIVE haul for that spot. The belief is that multiple first-round picks for the future will be needed to get things across the line.

Is that something Schoen would be willing to get rid of? Or, maybe the Patriots would take some second-rounders for the Giants to move up to No. 3? Schoen and Daboll are doing their homework on young QBs and this will be the case for the next two months. All options must be explored.
