What Jets, Giants might do on Day 3 of 2024 NFL Draft



The first three rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft are in the rearview, and the Giants and Jets still have plenty of work to do. Here’s what The Post’s Brian Costello and Paul Schwartz see as their remaining holes to fill in Rounds 4-7:

The Jets’ biggest needs entering Day 3 are on defense after taking offensive players with their first two picks.

The Jets need help at safety and on the interior of the defensive line.

The other position to watch on Day 3 is quarterback.

The Jets need a third-string, developmental quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers and Tyrod Taylor. Tulane’s Michael Pratt or Florida State’s Jordan Travis could be the guy.

The Jets’ final pick is the last pick in the draft, aka Mr. Irrelevant.

What Giants might do on Day 3 of 2024 NFL Draft

The Giants selected a wide receiver, safety and cornerback in the first three rounds of the draft and they certainly could look to add a running back Saturday on Day 3.

“We won’t rule that out,’’ GM Joe Schoen said.

The Giants have just three picks on Day 3, one selection in Round 4 (No. 107 overall) five (No. 166), six (No. 183) and none in the seventh round.

In addition to running back — Bucky Irving (Oregon), Jaylen Wright (Tennessee) and Isaac Guerendo (Louisville) are still out there — the Giants could look to find a defensive tackle and there is always a possibility they try to find a quarterback to add to a room that includes Daniel Jones, Drew Lock and Tommy DeVito.

Spencer Rattler (South Carolina) and Michael Pratt (Tulane) remain on the board after going undrafted in the first three rounds.
