Despite there being five games left in the season for the NY Giants, 4-8 on the campaign, plenty of Big Blue supporters are already looking ahead to the 2024 NFL Draft. With the way the fall has gone, the Giants are looking at a Top 10 pick.
If the draft was today, general manager Joe Schoen would be picking at No. 7 overall. That of course means NY would miss out on Caleb Williams and Drake Maye, but there will still be a ton of talent left for the G-Men to take a look at. Receiver has been mentioned several times, but Pro Football Network has a new name for fans to keep in mind moving forward: Keon Coleman.
PFN has the Giants selection Keon Coleman with the No. 7 overall pick
"Florida State continues reeling from being left out of the College Football Playoff, but they can look back on the season that was and be proud of what they accomplished. Getting Keon Coleman to come to campus is one of them. Coleman showed off his athleticism frequently for the Seminoles. From acrobatic catches to creating space in the open field, Coleman upgraded the Florida State passing attack. He now can do that with the Giants, and New York will love their new weapon."- Joe Broback
In their latest mock, PFN actually has Schoen selecting Coleman with the No. 7 overall spot. Coleman is a big-bodied wideout - the kind of WR this team has been missing for quite some time. Checking in at 6-4, 215 pounds, Coleman has posted in 50 receptions for 658 yards and 11 touchdowns.
He's got fantastic hands, there's no doubt about that. However, this is the first time we've seen Coleman linked to New York. Other wideouts of intrigue no question include Malik Nabers and Rome Odunze. In this mock draft, PFN has Odunze going to the Saints at No. 9 and Nabers to the Bengals at No. 13.
This team is in serious need of offensive playmakers for Daniel Jones, if he returns as the starting quarterback in 2024 following his torn ACL that is. There are obviously going to be other positions for Schoen to focus on leading up to the draft, but Coleman sure would be an interesting move.
