1. The NY Giants will make a trade in the first round

With the trade market seemingly heating up like it usually does before the draft, the odds of the NY Giants potentially trading their first-round pick may be higher than you'd think. The best part about this is that there are so many things the Giants can do with this pick, whether they trade up to guarantee one of the top four receivers, or even trade this pick for a star.

New York is currently sitting at the 25th overall pick in the first round, but the top four receivers in Jordan Addison, Quentin Johnson, Zay Flowers, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba very well could be gone by the time the Giants get to pick. This could potentially open the door for a trade-up depending on how aggressive Schoen wants to be about selecting one of these four studs.

Alongside this, the option for the Giants to trade their pick for a star is also on the table. While it may be a long shot, Stefon Diggs has made some questionable tweets that could relate to him potentially wanting out of Buffalo. If this becomes a reality, it wouldn't be surprising to see Schoen attempt to reunite with an old friend.

This all revolves around just how aggressive Schoen and the front office want to be in this draft. While they will more likely than not just select the best player available regardless of position, the option to trade the pick is still a tantalizing one that could reap some awesome benefits.
