3. Jayden Daniels, LSU

The floor may not be as high as some would like to admit, but when it comes to potential ceiling in the NFL, Jayden Daniels could very well have the highest in his class. Whether it be his out-of-this-world arm, or elite athleticism, Daniels has so many aspects of his game that make him a perfect fit in the modern NFL. That is, at least, if he can fix some of the kinks in his technique.

For the Giants, there may not be a better prospect available to them at No. 6, and considering how good of a QB coach Brian Daboll is, he and Daniels could be a match made in heaven. The Giants have never had anything close to the upside Daniels possesses, and with Daboll at the helm, we could see the Heisman winner break out into a star with Big Blue.

During his final season at LSU, Daniels completed 72.2 percent of his passes for 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns, and four interceptions. While he has some issues in terms of consistency with his throwing technique, and his ability to consistently hit intermediate routes, these can easily be fixed with the right coach.

Alongside his potential as a thrower, Daniels is also absurdly good on the ground, running the ball 135 times for 1,134 yards and 10 touchdowns. The dual-threat ability he brings on the field could absolutely tear apart NFL defenses. Unfortunately, though, we aren't the only ones so high on Daniels, and it could take a miracle for him to fall to the G-Men.
