Daniel Jeremiah changes Giants’ pick in latest mock draft

The NFL offseason is progressing, and in less than a week, the 2024 Combine festivities will begin in Indianapolis.

NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah issued his second mock draft of the year, switching his pick for the Giants at No. 6 to LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels, before the NFL world gathered in Indianapolis.

“I don’t make trade projections in mock drafts this early in the process, which is why Daniels is still available at No. 6,” Jeremiah stated. “I wouldn’t rule out the Giants trying to move up for a quarterback, but in this scenario, Daniels falls into their lap.”

Daniels had a fantastic redshirt senior year at LSU, which resulted in him winning

The 23-year-old gained 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns, and only four interceptions by successfully completing more than 72% of his throws. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound quarterback was a potent weapon in the run game as well, averaging 8.4 yards per rush to complete the season with 1,134 yards and 10 touchdowns gained on the ground.

Daniels’ 2023 honors include the Johnny United Golden Arm Award, the Davey O’Brien Award, AP College Football Player of the Year, SEC Offensive Player of the Year, Consensus All-American, and first-team All-SEC in addition to his Heisman victory.

In his list of the top 50 prospects, Jeremiah described Daniels as a tall/lean quarterback with great accuracy, decision-making, and quickness. “He is quite composed and at ease in the pocket. At the top of his drop, he likes to use a rhythm bounce before planting his feet and elegantly shifting his weight to throw. His throwing motion is exquisite and he releases the ball really quickly. He tosses with accuracy, touch, and anticipation. He shows off his ability to use his eyes to manipulate safeties in order to generate separation downfield.

“He doesn’t think twice to pop out of the pocket under pressure. His suddenness is elite. Rather than being a break-down or make-you-miss kind of ball carrier, he is more of a linear/speed runner. He has to guard the area more effectively.

With 1,569 receiving yards at the end of the 2023 season, Nabers recorded his second consecutive 1,000-yard campaign. During his sophomore season the previous year, the 6-foot-0, 200-pound wide receiver caught 72 catches for 1,017 yards and three touchdowns. He then had a standout season, finishing second in receiving touchdowns and leading the FBS in receiving yards at the end of the regular season with 89 receptions.
