Anything can happen for the NY Giants leading up to draft night in late April. There seems to be a split among the fanbase on what to do at quarterback. On one side of things, people want Daniel Jones to be the starter for the long haul, while others want a new face of the franchise to come in.

Once the NFL Draft gets here, the belief is that the G-Men and general manager Joe Schoen will have to trade up to land a top prospect and not reach for someone else. However, in his latest Mock Draft for NFL.com, insider Daniel Jeremiah has made a lot of people happy: he has LSU's Jayden Daniels falling to No. 6 overall to the Giants.

Jayden Daniels landing with the NY Giants in the draft would be incredible

"As noted above, I don’t make trade projections in mock drafts this early in the process, which is why Daniels is still available at No. 6. I wouldn’t rule out the Giants trying to move up for a quarterback, but in this scenario, Daniels falls into their lap. "

It's interesting to see Jeremiah say he wouldn't rule out Schoen moving up for a top QB talent, but if Daniels indeed falls to No. 6 and the Giants don't have to pay through the roof to move up, then it'd be amazing news for the Big Blue front office. Daniels is a certified stud with the ball in his hands.

His stock has skyrocketed in recent months, especially after he was named the 2023 Heisman Trophy winner. This past season for the Tigers, the 6-4, 210-pound Daniels tossed for 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns and only four interceptions. While Caleb Williams is considered the QB1 for the class, there's plenty of debate on QB2 between Drake Maye and Daniels.

If Daniels somehow falls to No. 6, people in New York and New Jersey will be screaming at their televisions for Schoen to take the star out of LSU. There's been recent buzz about J.J. McCarthy potentially being the pick if the other QBs are off the board, but come on, that'd be absurd.

Daniels has all the tools to be an electric signal-caller in the NFL. Jones signed his $160 million extension last offseason, but the idea of Schoen taking his own guy could be too enticing for him to pass up on. And if Daniels is available when it's Schoen's turn to make a pick, it would be a total stunner if he doesn't send his name in.
