With so many quarterback options in the 2024 NFL Draft, countless NY Giants fans are hoping that general manager Joe Schoen will use the team's upcoming top pick on a new QB1 for the future. The days of Daniel Jones running the offense could be over?

Not so fast. Danny Dimes has been attacking his rehab from a torn ACL like a mad man and he's poised to get back on the field sooner rather than later. According to NFL insider Mike Garafolo, the expectation is not only that he'll be ready for Week 1 next season, but that he'll be the starter too. How do Big Blue supporters feel about this?

NY Giants QB Daniel Jones is expected to be the Week 1 starter in 2024

Last offseason, Schoen and the front office made the questionable decision to give Jones a four-year, $160 million extension. People were bashing Schoen for that call back in March and he's only received even more hate thanks to the terrible season Jones was having before injuring his knee.

With the Giants at 5-11 entering the season finale vs. the Eagles, they currently hold the No. 5 overall pick in the NFL Draft, but could move up depending on how things go on Sunday. If they're in the Top 5, there will be several QB options for them. The list includes Jayden Daniels, Michael Penix Jr. and more.

Caleb Williams and Drake Maye are expected to be the top two quarterbacks taken next April, but whether or not the Chicago Bears decide to go all in on Justin Fields or not will impact how things shake out with the first few picks.

There's been a lot of buzz that Daniels, the Heisman Trophy winner, could make a ton of sense for the G-Men in the first round. However, if Schoen sticks with Jones for the long haul, then New York could focus on an offensive tackle or star wideout in Round 1. No one knows what will happen, but if Schoen indeed trusts Jones, then people hoping for a QB in the first round could end up being majorly disappointed this offseason.
