Giants GM ‘comfortable’ with QB situation

When the New York Giants came on the clock with the No. 6 pick in the NFL draft, plenty of speculation suggested the club could choose a quarterback.

Instead, the Giants selected wide receiver Malik Nabers, adding a legitimate weapon for incumbent quarterback Daniel Jones. General manager Joe Schoen explained the Giants are content with Jones leading the offense next season.

“I’m comfortable with where we’re at,” Schoen said when asked if he views quarterback as a high-priority position for the remainder of the draft.

The Giants and Minnesota Vikings reportedly made a last-ditch effort to acquire the No. 3 selection from the New England Patriots, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. New England kept the pick and selected quarterback Drake Maye to be the next face of the franchise.

Other talented passers such as Michael Penix Jr. and J.J. McCarthy were still available at No. 6, but the club got the player it coveted.

“Malik was our guy,” Schoen said. “He was the guy we targeted. And we took him. There were other players on the board, and we took him.”

Jones appears set to remain the Giants’ starter as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL that ended his 2023 season. He’s optimistic he’ll be ready in time for training camp. With Drew Lock projected to serve as Jones’ backup, the Giants appear to be prioritizing improving at other positions.

“We’ll look at all positions across the board,” Schoen added. “I said last week that we have multiple needs across the board and the team, and we’ll continue to try to fill those throughout the draft.”
