1. WR Rome Odunze

If the Giants aren't going to make a move for a new QB, Rome Odunze needs to be the pick at No. 6. He will give the Giants that true No. 1 receiver/downfield threat they have been missing. Odunze can do it all. He had two straight seasons with over 1,100 receiving yards and saved his best season for last as he accumulated 92 receptions, over 1,600 yards and 13 touchdowns in his final campaign.

Not only does Odunze show it on the field, but he's also got the prototypical size you want your outside receiver to be at 6-3, 200 pounds. A big reason for Michael Penix Jr.'s success in 2023 was because he got to throw to Odunze. This is a receiver who makes a QB's life easier and the college football world got to see that for the past two years.

If the biggest complaint is that he just needs to gain a little more muscle, Giants fans should be banging down Schoen's door to draft this guy. In a dream world, the Giants take Odunze at No. 6 and trade back late into the first round to take Penix (or he could be available in the second round). Schoen made a splash last year in landing Deonte Banks at No. 24 overall. We hope another brilliant decision is made in his second draft too.
