We are still more than three months away from the 2024 NFL Draft getting here, but speculation continues to grow on who the NY Giants will take with their No. 6 overall pick. There are several different directions Joe Schoen can go in, while we also can't rule out him trading up to No. 1.

However, if the Giants stay put at No. 6, there are plenty of top targets for Schoen to focus on. Unfortunately, both Caleb Williams and Drake Maye should be off the board. Having said that, these three names keep popping up in mock drafts and fans sure would love seeing one of these guys make their way to East Rutherford this spring:

3. LSU QB Jayden Daniels

Will a replacement for Daniels Jones be on the way? This is something that countless Big Blue supporters are hoping for, as Danny Dimes didn't live up to the hype during the 2023 season after signing a four-year, $160 million extension. He also suffered a torn ACL in the Week 9 loss to the Raiders, making things worse.

Because of that, Jayden Daniels, the 2023 Heisman Trophy winner, could make a ton of sense for the Giants in the first round. However, will the LSU standout still be on the clock by the time it's Schoen's turn to send his top pick in? That's the hope, but that may not be the case because of how needy some teams are for a new leader for their offense.

At the top of the draft, the Bears, Cardinals AND Patriots all could look to take a new signal-caller. There's been more buzz of late that the Pats could rock with Daniels at No. 3 overall. However, who knows how things will end up going. If Daniels is still on the clock at No. 6, it could be way too tough for Schoen to pass on him.
