1. Missing out on a top QB to stay committed to Daniel Jones

While Schoen and Daboll committed to Daniel Jones in a huge way after their first year on the job, their second season in New York proved one thing: their current quarterback can’t block them from finding their future quarterback.

Of course, Jones could still fill both roles, but his regression in 2023 has the jury leaning towards a new signal-caller in New York. With the No. 6 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, ironically the selection the Giants used to pick Jones in 2019, his successor could fall into the team’s lap.

Caleb Williams, Drake Maye and Jayden Daniels represent an extremely strong top of the class for the 2024 NFL Draft. If the Giants fall in love with either of them, they must do everything in their power to get them in blue next season, whether that’s trading up or being fortunate with one of them falling to No. 6.

Even if the Giants aren’t able to draft a quarterback, it’s possible they could look into trading for one brimming with potential. Justin Fields comes to mind if the Chicago Bears opt to move on from the former Ohio State star. 

Jones has battled long odds before, and who knows, if he returns healthy and looking like his 2022 self, he could keep his replacement on the bench for the foreseeable future. Still, the Giants can’t count on that. It’s a recipe for disaster, and it’s time for them to bolster their QBs room for the future.
