Will NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen end up trading up in the NFL Draft to get 'his guy' at quarterback? That's something that can't be ruled out, even if reports state that he might prefer to go after a veteran QB to push Daniel Jones leading up to Week 1.

However, from our chair, it seems like Schoen may need to be aggressive once late April rolls around to bring in a new QB1 for this team. If that ends up happening, a blockbuster trade will need to be recorded come draft night. So, how about the G-Men climbing up three spots to No. 3 overall?

The Giants trading up to No. 3 overall could end up happening

In this case, we have the Giants making a deal with the New England Patriots, grabbing their No. 3 overall pick. In return, the Pats would receive the No. 6 overall pick, a second-round pick, a fourth-round pick and a 2025 second-rounder as well.

In this scenario, the Giants wouldn't give up a future first-round selection and they'd still have a leftover second-round selection this spring - remember the Giants have two second-rounders in '24 thanks to the Leonard Williams trade with Seattle.

So, with NY now in the Top 3 in this case, who would they go with? Despite there being buzz that Jayden Daniels is starting to look like the QB2 behind Caleb Williams, we still think it will be Williams off the board at No. 1 and Drake Maye gone at No. 2.

That would leave the Heisman Trophy winner on the board for Schoen to go after. Daniels has all the tools to be a great signal-caller in this league. He has a rocket for an arm, which was showcased throughout the 2023 campaign with LSU. He's also got impressive wheels. The NY front office may be hesitant in giving up on the $160 million investment on Jones this early, but if Daniels is there for the taking, Schoen and Co. will have to pounce.
