It's hard to believe that the 2024 NFL Draft is almost here, but the time is coming for general manager Joe Schoen to let the world know what the NY Giants will be doing in the first round. Will he stand pat at No. 6 overall or trade up/down?

April 25 simply can't come fast enough, as Giants fans are waiting anxiously to find out which playmaker will be brought in on draft night. Plenty of NFL Mock Drafts continue to make their way to our laptops/mobile devices. In our latest roundup, it's clear offense will be a focus for Schoen and Co.

Will the Giants take Malik Nabers in the first round of the NFL Draft?

Eric Edholm, LSU WR Malik Nabers

Quarterback Daniel Jones spoke to the media at the start of the voluntary offseason program and he sounded confident that he has had no setbacks in his rehab. All signs are pointing to him starting Week 1. That is why Eric Edholm has New York selecting LSU phenom Malik Nabers with the No. 6 overall pick. The Giants have not had a receiver with a 1,000-yard season since 2018 (Odell Beckham Jr.) and that could change if the Giants take Nabers.

Nabers had an incredible three-year run with the Tigers, with this past season being his best year. He set career highs in receptions with 82 as well as receiving yards with over 1,500 and touchdowns with 14. He's not only the best wideout coming out of the SEC, but also arguably the entire country.

Peter Schrager, NFL Network: Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy

Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy has been linked to the Giants for quite some time and many believe that the Giants could not only draft him, but trade up for him. Peter Schrager sure thinks so and he has Big Blue taking McCarthy to move on from Jones. In his mock draft, he has Schoen trading up to No. 4 to get him.

Though the move may not be a popular one for some Giants fans, McCarthy did have a strong career for Michigan, which finished off with him winning a National Championship. He threw for over 20 touchdown passes in 2022 and 2023, had over 2,500 yards through the air in both seasons as well, and only threw a combined nine interceptions in both seasons. He's still young, but his potential is through the roof.

Paul Schwartz, New York Post: Washington WR Rome Odunze

If not Nabers, star Washington Huskies wide receiver Rome Odunze may also be in play for the Giants. That's what Paul Schwartz has the G-Men doing, as he sees Odunze heading to East Rutherford to join the Giants offense via the No. 6 overall pick. Just like Nabers, Odunze can also become an immediate No. 1 receiving target for Jones and the Big Blue offense.

Odunze had an elite 2023 season for the Huskies, as he posted 92 receptions for 1,640 yards and 13 touchdowns, which were all career highs for him. This draft is filled with generational talents at WR. Schoen can't go wrong with either Nabers or Odunze.
