Giants 2024 Mock Draft Roundup: A playmaking WR the consensus for Big Blue

The Giants had high expectations heading into the 2023 season. But behind a battered offensive line, Big Blue ran headlong into a season of big disappointments, including losing quarterback Daniel Jones to an ACL tear in November.

New York went on to finish the year 6-11 and they now own the sixth overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

While Jones is expected to be ready for the start of training camp and the regular season, GM Joe Schoen is expected to still look to add a quarterback this offseason. Some fans want to use the top-10 pick on a young passer, but early predictions have Big Blue targeting a WR to improve the offense and give Jones a true top target. 

Here’s who some of the experts have the G-Men selecting in their latest mock drafts…

Odunze is my WR2 by the slimmest of margins. In fact, his contested-catch ability, as well as his body control, ranks in the top 20 percentile in a 10-season sample. I also cannot believe my models didn’t choose an O-lineman here either, as it is an area of big need. That should tell you how much my evaluations love Odunze.

TE Brock Bowers (Georgia)

As New York begins identifying young skill talent to build around, running back Saquon Barkley and Bowers are two of those tent poles. There is not a lot of sense in building around an almost 32-year-old tight end making $14 million+ over the next three years when you are multiple years away from contention.
