4. QB Daniel Jones

Yes, Jones had a short-lived season due to a neck injury followed by a season-ending ACL tear, but that is exactly why 2023 was such a disappointment for him. Since he arrived to the NFL in 2019, Jones has only played one full season healthy, which is a problem especially after the Giants gave him a $160 million extension. Even when on the field in '23, Jones looked rough.

In his shortened season, Jones had just two touchdown passes and six interceptions. Even though a few of those interceptions were throws that were tipped by Giants receivers and weren't necessarily Jones' fault, he just did not look sharp at all. Plus, in the six games that he did start in 2023, Jones did not have a single touchdown pass in five of those contests. The Giants invested so much in Jones this season and after a strong 2022 campaign, the Giants had high hopes for him to play even better in 2023, but that was not the case.

The Giants are set to pick at No. 6 overall in the NFL Draft and with this class filled with many talented quarterbacks, does Schoen think about drafting a quarterback? There's a lot of buzz that Schoen/Daboll could look to draft 'their own QB' this spring. After how bad Jones played this past fall, it won't be a surprise if it happens.
