A lot of people are going to make the case that J.J. McCarthy has boosted his stock the most this offseason, but you can't forget about LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers either. Plenty of analysts have him as their top wideout for the 2024 NFL Draft class - yes, above Marvin Harrison Jr.

The NY Giants are quite interested in the youngster and they were surely impressed with what he was able to get done at his LSU Pro Day. The Giants had dinner with Nabers the night before he took the field and that interest we mentioned? It's mutual, as Nabers is clearly quite high on the G-Men himself.

Those are the words of a young man who seems to like the idea of being taken off the board at No. 6 overall. There are plenty of Odell Beckham Jr. comparisons being thrown around, and it's pretty easy to see why. Both were stars for LSU, making countless acrobatic plays.

OBJ was the last true No. 1 wideout the Giants had. They've tried to replace him since he was traded to the Browns, but no high-profile WR has panned out for John Mara. Kenny Golladay was one of the worst signings of the past decade. We also don't want to talk about using a first-round pick on Kadarius Toney.

Nabers is the kind of speedster who could make people forget about the rough WR play over the years and have fans excited about the future instead. This past season for the Tigers, Nabers, a 6-0, 200-pounder, finished with 89 receptions for 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns.

There are plenty of different options for Schoen in the first round. A lot of Big Blue supporters want to see him bring in a new QB1, but with the improvements on the offensive line and a stud like Nabers on the way, perhaps Daniel Jones will be put in a better situation for 2024. Regardless, if Nabers is still on the board at No. 6 and the Giants stand pat, he'll surely have a smile on his face if Roger Goodell presents him with an NY jersey on stage.
