Rumored asking price for a Giants-Patriots draft trade would be a no-brainer for NY

Joe Schoen would simply have to make this move

Will the NY Giants end up trading up in the first round to bring in a new star quarterback? That's something that people are going to be wondering heavily all the way until draft night. Recent buzz sure makes it feel like Joe Schoen is going to go after his 'own guy' under center.

While landing the No. 1 overall pick to take Caleb Williams would be a dream come true, it doesn't feel likely at this point. However, getting the No. 3 spot and drafting either Drake Maye or Jayden Daniels - depending on who's off the board first - is in the cards. So, how much would it cost to move up three picks? Not as much as you might have originally thought.

A Giants-Patriots NFL Draft trade will be something to watch

The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy asked the NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah what it would take for the Giants to grab the No. 3 overall pick and Jeremiah said the No. 6 pick, plus three second-rounders. Again, not as much as you might have imagined, right?

The Great thing for the Giants this spring is that they have two second-round picks thanks to the trade they made with the Seahawks for Leonard Williams. So, they'd send those two, plus the No. 6 overall pick and a 2025 second-rounder to grab Daniels/Maye. That's not bad at all.

Schoen has said he's going to rock with Daniel Jones as his Week 1 starter, but with his poor play and torn ACL injury in 2023, we very well could end up seeing the Danny Dimes era in East Rutherford end after the upcoming season. It's hard to imagine that after he just signed his $160 million extension last March.

However, Schoen and Brian Daboll know there's going to be pressure on them to try and bounce back from the embarrassing 6-11 showing in '23. This organization needs something to spice things up and Maye/Daniels could be the answer. There's always a chance NY stands pat in Round 1 and brings in Malik Nabers or Rome Odunze, but a primetime addition at QB could prove to be what ends up going down.
