2. LSU WR Malik Nabers

If the Giants do go all-in on Jones as the starter for 2024, then goodness, it's time for Schoen and Co. to bring in some superstar talent at receiver for him. That's why a speedy pass-catcher at No. 6 is something to monitor moving forward and plenty of draft analysts agree. LSU's Malik Nabers is a guy you've probably heard about several times in recent weeks and he's a primetime talent.

Nabers has been mocked to the Giants at No. 6 overall quite a bit and it wouldn't be a stunner at all for him to be the guy who Schoen rocks with. The 6-0, 200-pounder is coming off another strong season for the Tigers, finishing 2023 with 89 receptions for 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns. He averaged 17.6 yards per receptions, which was fantastic. Nabers and Daniels were rockstars in the SEC together.

The Giants haven't had a phenomenal WR1 on the team since the days of Odell Beckham Jr. Everyone was hoping that Kenny Golladay would fill that void, but his $72 million deal proved to be one of the worst decisions from the nightmare Dave Gettleman era. Nabers is oozing with potential and he'd be able to make an immediate impact for this team and Jones.
