New York Giants sign top key players with  North Carolina, Michigan ahead of 2024 April season…

Top NFL prospects are being evaluated by the Giants ahead of the April draft.

The Giants watched quarterback Michael Penix Jr. at his Washington Pro Day with a group that included general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll. In the next few days, the team is reportedly planning to watch J.J. McCarthy of Michigan and Drake Maye of North Carolina.

The Giants, who were still in North Carolina on Thursday, are scheduled to meet and work out with Maye in the “coming days,” according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

According to Art Stapleton of The Record, McCarthy and Big Blue will work out in private this weekend. McCarthy is the 2023 College Football Playoff national champion.

According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, both Maye and McCarthy had earlier in March visited the Giants in New Jersey.

All of this activity occurred after the Giants witnessed an exciting game in Baton Rouge on Wednesday between 2023 Heisman Trophy winner quarterback Jayden Daniels and outstanding wide receiver Malik Nabers of LSU. One day before to the workout, the Giants and Nabers shared a meal, as Ryan Dunleavy of The Post reported.

The Giants, who were 31st in passing (169.8 yards per game) and 30th in scoring offense (15.6 points per game), are likely to use their first draft pick to acquire a wide receiver or quarterback who can make plays.

On Wednesday, Schoen stated he would not be against selecting a talented player from the latter position. Schoen agreed that having a top receiver would be ideal. “With that, I believe every team would sign on, especially with an offensive head coach.”

This week, Daboll stated that although evaluating players and selecting who to take when it’s time to make “It’s not exactly a science,” Daboll declared. The fact that there isn’t is evident. You exert all of your effort. I enjoy carrying it out. I enjoy analyzing quarterbacks a lot. Meeting the quarterbacks is something I adore. It’s a really enjoyable position to evaluate and a great position to work with.

Daniel Jones, who just underwent reconstructive knee surgery, is still with the Giants. Drew Lock was signed to a one-year contract to replace third-stringer Tommy DeVito as the backup.
