Remember when NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen tried and failed to move up for a new star quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft? Don't expect him to make the same mistake once next April gets here. That's what the team over at Pro Football Network has in mind.

In a new 2025 NFL Mock Draft from writer Ian Cummings, he has the Giants taking home the No. 2 overall pick next spring. This would obviously mean another disaster season will be on the way and Daniel Jones will surely be released. However, Cummings doesn't have the G-Men staying at No. 2. Instead, he has NY and Schoen trading up with Carolina for the No. 1 spot to draft Georgia signal-caller Carson Beck.

"In this 2025 NFL Mock Draft, the Giants make a slight trade-up to block other quarterback-needy teams and ensure they get the preliminary QB1 of the 2025 class. Carson Beck‘s ability to win inside the pocket with anticipation, pace, touch, and layering is unmatched."

Ian Cummings

Plenty of people are riding high on Beck and for good reason. He has been incredible to watch for Georgia and he's got tremendous potential. With that said, will he be the answer for the Giants after this upcoming season?

Cummings doesn't have the Giants giving up as much as you might have guessed for the No. 1 pick - he has NY sending its No. 2 pick, plus a 2025 third-round pick and a 2026 third-rounder. Yeah, that's not too bad and something Schoen would probably love to get done.

Hey, we'd be up for it too, but it's just hard to imagine the Giants' season will go so poorly once again that they'll end up owning the No. 2 pick once the campaign wraps up. With some even thinking that Brian Daboll could be on the hot seat, another rough year could spell trouble for him. We hope that won't be the case, but should the season go south, a new QB of the future will 100 percent be on his way to town. That much we do know.
