The New York Giants had a pretty successful and smart draft this past weekend.  I really liked their first and second round pick selections.  The one big surprise was that they did not draft a quarterback at all with their six picks in the 2024 NFL Draft.  Joe Schoen, Brian Daboll, and company clearly still trust and want their guy to be Daniel Jones at quarterback.  Below is my quick take on this as seen in The Times Union:

New York Giants got it right when they selected Wide Receiver Malik Nabers from LSU with the No.6 overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft. If the Giants believe in quarterback Daniel Jones, then taking Nabers makes perfect sense because Nabers gives Jones the go to receiver he lacks on the roster. The quarterback the Giants liked the most was Drake Maye, and he went to New England with the third pick. JJ McCarthy from Michigan was never the quarterback the Giants were targeting. Nabers will be a game changer and the if Jones can stay heathy the Giants will be much better offensively next season.

I do believe that Nabers will make an immediate impact on this Giants offense as Daniel Jones has not had a true number one wide receiver yet in his career.  LSU wide receivers taken in the first round have had a very good track record as well.  It will be a slow rebuild but Giants fans need to have faith in the front office and this team will be back to being competitive again in a few years for sure.
