We are officially less than a month away from finding out who the NY Giants take with the No. 25 overall pick. Goodness me, April 27 can't get here soon enough. While several guys have been linked with the G-Men, it'd be a surprise if Joe Schoen doesn't go with a star wide receiver.

In their latest NFL Mock Draft, ESPN's Jordan Reid has the Giants going with Boston College wide receiver Zay Flowers late in the first round. However, he also has two top NY targets hearing their names called only a few picks earlier. Indeed, Reid has TCU's Quentin Johnson going to the Ravens at No. 22, and USC's Jordan Addison heading to the Vikings at No. 23.

ESPN has the NY Giants taking Zay Flowers with the No. 25 overall pick

Let's be clear about something, Flowers is a playmaker and we'd obviously love to see him suit up for the Giants to catch balls from Daniel Jones. However, both Addison and Johnston are ranked higher than Flowers for a reason: they've got bigger potential.

From our chair, we'd love for either of those two to make their way to East Rutherford. However, it looks like Schoen and Co. are going to have to try and trade up to make that happen. Another player Big Blue supporters would love to see in blue would be Ohio State superstar WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba.

However, Reid has him going early on draft night, with the Houston Texans giving him a call when they're up with the No. 12 overall pick. Smith-Njigba had nothing but good things to say about his meeting with Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen. He even said it would be a dream to play in New York for the Giants.

There's a very slim chance that he falls all the way down to No. 25, though. Flowers is a great wide receiver and he'd be able to make quite the impact next fall if he does end up joining the Giants. Still, it'd be pretty sweet if a miracle arrives and either Smith-Njigba, Johnston or Addison is still available when it's Schoen's turn to send his pick in.
