The 2024 NFL Draft has concluded, and the New York Giants have been busy addressing important issues as they attempt to rebound from a 6-11 record in 2023. There was a lot of speculation that the G-Men might trade up for a new quarterback, perhaps Drake Maybe, but that did not materialize. Instead, NY signed Mailk Nabers at No. 6 overall.

The Giants also went defensive in Rounds 2-3, picking Minnesota safety Tyler Nubin and Kentucky cornerback Dru Phillips. Despite this great draft class, one big takeaway was that the Giants’ QB situation remains undetermined in the future. Could a first-round quarterback be on the way next spring?

PFF has the Giants selecting Georgia QB Carson Beck at No. 5 overall in 2025

Pro Football Focus wasted little time predicting next year’s draft, with Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Carson Beck going little. 5 overall to New York. While this is a bold prediction, the Giants would be wise to make this move if Jones has another poor season, which is probably probable.

This season, there were high hopes that Jones would be able to live up to his $160 million contract, but 2023 was really difficult for him. Jones missed multiple games with a neck issue before tearing his ACL in Week 9. He struggled with the ball in his hands before to his season-ending injury, and turnovers were once again an issue.

Beck had a grade of 91.5 from PFF in 2023, placing him fourth among college football quarterbacks. According to PFF, the Giants chose Beck because of his excellent timing and accuracy. Beck also had a successful first full season as the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback, passing for nearly 4,000 yards, 24 touchdowns, and just six interceptions.

If he performs similarly or better in 2024, he will be considered a top quarterback for the 2025 NFL Draft. It remains to be seen whether Jones can recoup in 2024, but if he and the Giants continue to fail despite acquiring quality to their roster, particularly on the offensive side of the ball, moving the QB route in Round 1 should be a focus for Schoen and the front office.

Jones, along with Saquon Barkley, led the Giants to the playoffs in 2022, but his lengthy and troubling injury history has to be a worry for Schoen. He nearly traded up in this draft for Drake Maye, but he didn’t make a strong enough offer to New England. If Jones isn’t his guy in the next round, it’ll be time to move on and take someone like Beck instead.
