3. Washington QB Michael Penix Jr.

Assuming the Giants prioritize selecting a quarterback in this upcoming draft, a great option could be Washington's Michael Penix Jr. While there's a chance Penix does not get picked in the first round, he could make sense for the Giants if they choose to wait until the second round to draft a quarterback.

The senior out of Tampa, Fla., is in his sixth collegiate season this year after playing his first four years at Indiana. Penix has made a name for himself the last two years at Washington, where he's broken out, and his draft stock has quickly risen. Last year, he posted 4,641 yards and 31 touchdowns, which led the Huskies to a second-place finish in the Pac-12.

Penix has posted 3,533 yards and 28 touchdowns this season and has an 85.1 quarterback rating. His dominant performance has led to 10 straight wins and an undefeated record throughout the season. This past week against Utah, Penix played exceptionally well, throwing for 332 yards, two touchdowns, and a 57.1 completion percentage.
