Chad Reuter 7-round mock draft: Giants take the J.J. McCarthy plunge

The 2024 NFL Draft promises to be wild, with teams moving all over the draft board to get the players they want. So, it’s fitting that’s Chad Reuter released a wild seven-round mock draft that sees the New York Giants moving up in the first round for a quarterback.

Here’s how it went.

Round 1 (No. 4) – JJ McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Yes, Reuter is making a decision that could easily become reality next Thursday evening. He writes:

The Daniel Jones era could be coming to an end in New York. Remember, he wasn’t this administration’s pick, and the Giants signed Drew Lock in March in the kind of deal a team often gives a veteran before selecting a quarterback. first round. McCarthy didn’t have to throw the ball 40 times a game at Michigan thanks to the team’s efficient ground game, but he showed himself capable of throwing passes into tight windows, moving effectively in the pocket and running for big wins when given the chance. The Giants trade a second-round pick this year and next year (while possibly receiving a 2024 Day 3 selection in return) to move up two spots, surpassing other potential suitors looking to take the Cardinals’ spot.

Valentine’s Day view: I have no problem with this, as you might guess. It doesn’t matter what any of us think of McCarthy, or whether you think a team should “protect the quarterback” of a roster before choosing a QB. If the Giants LIKE McCarthy, they should go get him. It certainly feels like 2024 could end the Daniel Jones era.

The rest of the project:

Round 3 (n°70) —Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon
Round 4 (n°107) —Braelon Allen, RB, Wisconsin
Round 5 (No. 138) —Beau Brade, S, Maryland
(This pick was gained in the McCarthy trade)
Round 5 (n°166) — Justin Eboigbe, DT, Alabama
Round 6 (n°183) — Deantre Prince, BC, Mississippi
