By Michael Stewart@TheTruthNYG The 2024 NFL draft will be GM Joe Schoen’s 3rd draft and arguably his most important one due to the speculation that the Giants could be looking for Daniel Jones replacement. Jones will be entering his 2nd year of a 4-year deal that does allow the Giants to move on from him after the 2024 season. The Giants will be selecting at #6. in RD1 and they could look to trade up or back or just stay at #6. There will be no trades in this mock draft as it’s nearly impossible to predict. Here is my mock draft for the Giants in the 2024 NFL draft.

Round 1(6): Rome Odunze (WR-Washington) 6’3/216: With Malik Nabers going to the Chargers in my mock draft (no trades) I believe that Rome Odunze would be the pick for the Giants. Odunze has all the bells and whistles NFL team’s want in an alpha WR1. Odunze has elite size and speed with the ability to catch anything within reach. Odunze is not only a vertical threat, but he excelled in short/medium catches for yards after the catch (YAC).

Round 2 (47): Cooper Beebe (OG-Kansas State) 6’3/322: GM Joe Schoen added several offensive linemen in free agency, but adding another young interior lineman like Beebe would give the Giants three young linemen to build around. Beebe is an exceptional pass protector and not too shabby as a run blocker.

Round 3 (70): Jalen Hicks (S-Washington State) 6’2/211: Hickshas a long and tall athletic frame that was dominant against press man coverage! Hicks is a physical player who likes to get hands on receivers early in press and then hand fight through the route. Also, Hicks is lethal in the box and can excel in blitzes packages.

Round 4(107): Elijah Jones (CB-Boston College) 6’2/185: Jones has a long frame and utilizes it well in both man and zone coverage. Jones plays the run with physicality and is a solid tackler. Jones has excellent body control to be an exceptional ball hawk and has above average speed (4.44) to stay with most WR in the NFL.

Round 5 (166): Isaac Guerendo (RB-Louisville) 6’0/225: Guerendo has a compact frame with that rare combination of power and speed (4.33) and does a great job with his elusiveness and gaining yards after first contact. Guerendo is also a reliable receiver out of the backfield and would complement newly free agent signee Devin Singletary.

Round 6 (183): Gabe Hall (DT-Baylor) 6’6/295: GM Joe Schoen bold move in trading for Brian Burns has solidified the Giants edge position with Burns teaming up with Kayvon Thibodeaux. Schoen has drafted DT on Day 3 in his first two drafts, so why not go for the trifecta with the selection of Gabe Hall. Hall would be a solid addition with his high motor and run stuffing ability as a 3-tech defensive tackle. Hall is quick off the snap and is very athletic for his size and could develop into a reliable inside pass rusher.

This mock draft might not sit well with a large portion of Giant fans as I didn’t mock a quarterback in any round. I went with the best player on the board, which happen to also fit a need. I believe it’s more likely that Joe Schoen would trade back (any round) than trade up for additional picks. Of course, all options are on the table and Schoen has been known to do the unexpected. Therefore, for the sake of argument in this mock draft, Schoen stands pat in all rounds and will eventually go BPA at #6.
