ESPN’s Jordan Raanan said he’s been told by “multiple sources” that “if the situation presents itself correctly,” the Giants would be open to drafting a QB in the first round.
As Raanan points out, the Giants have the No. 6 overall pick in this year’s draft, along with two second-round picks. In addition to the draft capital, there are also questions over whether or not the team wants to move forward with Jones’ given his recent injury history (neck/torn ACL). Jones signed a four-year, $160 million deal last offseason, which the Giants almost instantly regretted after a 40-0 Week 1 loss to the Cowboys in which Jones threw for 104 yards and one touchdown. It was only one game, but the struggles looked eerily familiar. Jones later suffered a neck injury that sidelined him for a few weeks and then a torn ACL, which kept him out for the remainder of the year. Already holding a high pick in the draft, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Giants take a shot on a top quarterback come April, as Jones has struggled to look like a franchise quarterback for much of his career.
