New ESPN Mock Draft has the NY Giants hitting almost every need possible

It's hard to believe we are less than one month away from the 2024 NFL Draft getting here. What will Joe Schoen and the NY Giants do in the first round? We just got off the phone with Joe and have the answer for you - we wish.

It's unknown if Schoen will trade up for a quarterback, bring in a wide receiver or stun us all by targeting Notre Dame offensive tackle Joe Alt. If you ask ESPN's Matt Miller, though, he has the Giants rocking with Malik Nabers in the first round. In his new seven-round mock draft, Miller also has Schoen landing quarterback Michael Penix Jr. in the second round. That's not all:

Malik Nabers to the Giants in the first round continues to gain momentum

In Miller's mock, he has Nabers and Penix getting picked by Schoen in the first two rounds and then he also has offensive guard Christian Haynes (third round), running back MarShawn Lloyd (fourth round), defensive tackle Tyler Davis (fifth round) and cornerback Willie Drew (sixth round) joining Brian Daboll's squad.

For those of you keeping track at home, that's a QB, WR, OG, RB, DT and CB for the G-Men to work with. Outside of a safety to replace Xavier McKinney - we'd love Jaden Hicks in the second round for the Giants - this feels like an unreal draft for the Giants if things go down this way.

At cornerback, the Giants have missed out on some key free agent targets, including Darious Williams and Tre'Davious White, both who ended up signing with the Rams. Added depth is needed, especially with it looking like Adoree' Jackson won't be back.

The big debate here is what to do at quarterback. If Penix is available at No. 47, Schoen has to take him, no doubt. Nabers at No. 6 would be a home-run pick, as there's debate he may be the best wideout in this class. Haynes would add depth/competition at guard, while Lloyd could help Devin Singletary and the ground game now that Saquon Barkley is in Philly.

Lastly, Davis at DT will help out Dexter Lawrence and Co. up front, while Drew will be a boost for the CBs room too. Again, all we're missing here is a safety, but we like where Miller's head is at. Who knows, Schoen could still pull off a surprising move in free agency to make us feel even better about this mock from ESPN.
