Leave it to NY Giants first-round pick Malik Nabers and Washington's No. 2 overall pick Jayden Daniels to already have people counting down the days for Week 1 to get here. That's because the two former LSU standouts are going to have more than braggings rights on the line in '24.

That's because Daniels and Nabers are both looking to make such a big impact for their respective teams, that the two are eyeing Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. Should Nabers end up taking home the award, Daniels will have to send him $10,000, as the two have that kind of dough on the line.

It goes without saying, but Giants fans are hoping that Daniels ends up paying his former teammate. The hope is that Nabers, taken with the No. 6 overall pick, will become a superstar in this league from the first moment he takes the field in September.

Nabers and Daniels formed incredible chemistry at LSU and the numbers back that up. In 2023 for the Tigers, Nabers posted 89 receptions for 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns. As for Daniels, he was a stud himself, tossing for 3,812 yards and 40 touchdowns, while only throwing four interceptions.

Both fan bases are hyped about these two playmakers, with Daniels looking to be the QB savior for the Commanders and Giants Nation is hoping Nabers can post the first 1,000-yard season for a New York wideout since Odell Beckham Jr. was in town.

Nabers is a big play waiting to happen, which should benefit Daniel Jones, if he's the starter in '24. There's been growing buzz that perhaps Drew Lock will be able to push for the starting job, which has a lot of people talking.

Regardless of who runs the offense, though, it won't matter for Nabers, as he's going to be ready to post huge numbers no matter what. We have a feeling it's going to be a memorable rookie campaign for the speedster and if all goes according to plan, Daniels will be sending him a $10,000 check next winter.
