NY Giants need to avoid this TE prospect at all costs after 2024 NFL Combine

The Giants have other needs they need to focus on

This is not a diss on his talent at all. For the NY Giants, they need to improve the offense and go all-in for playmakers if they're planning to build around Daniel Jones. For the aerial attack, grabbing a speedy wideout makes the most sense for No. 6 overall, if Joe Schoen stands pat.

That's why even if superstar tight end Brock Bowers is still on the board when it's Schoen's turn to send in his pick, the Giants need to stay away. Bowers impressed when speaking to the media at the NFL Combine and people are even more excited for his potential moving forward. Still, should the Giants focus elsewhere?

Brock Bowers doesn't make sense for the Giants in the 2024 NFL Draft

Checking in at 6-4, 240 pounds, Bowers already has the looks of a stud tight end and he made defenders look silly throughout his college career at Georgia. Last season for Kirby Smart, Bowers posted 56 receptions for 714 yards and six touchdowns.

No one can question how good this kid is and his potential could not be higher. He'd be an incredible addition for the Giants, but the timing just isn't right. Tight end simply is not the answer for Big Blue this spring, especially if Schoen is planning to bring back Darren Waller.

Waller had his issues staying healthy last season, but Schoen is ready to give him another shot proving that he can get back to his Pro-Bowl level. Why invest a No. 6 pick in Bowers if the plan is to let Waller do his thing for Jones and Co.?

Rome Odunze and Malik Nabers would completely open up the field for Jones and be the No. 1 wideout this team has needed since Odell Beckham Jr. was traded to the Cleveland Browns. Both players have been featured as Schoen's go-to guy in several Mock Drafts thus far.

With how terrible the offensive line has been, we'd even prefer Schoen to rock with Olu Fashanu or Joe Alt at No. 6. Either of those guys would be able to replace the struggling Evan Neal, while also allowing Neal to move to guard. Again, Bowers is a tremendous talent and he's going to make a GM very happy in the first round. However, we just don't want that happy GM to be Schoen.
