Giants News: New GM Joe Schoen Is Quietly Showing a Severe Lack of Faith in Daniel Jones

After several seasons of mediocrity, the New York Giants are finally attempting to turn a new page. They hired a new general manager (Joe Schoen) and a new head coach (Brian Daboll) this offseason, both hailing from the highly successful Buffalo Bills organization.

The hope is that this new duo will be good enough to transform the Giants into a consistent winner moving forward through a combination of intelligent front office moves and good coaching.

This is all very exciting for most Giants fans. They’ve been begging for change to occur recently. However, it’s not all that exciting to some of the team’s current players, who are likely to be replaced over the next year.

The Giants aren’t committing to Daniel Jones

The most critical question the Giants’ new brain trust has to answer revolves around quarterback Daniel Jones. A top-10 pick in 2019, Jones has shown flashes of elite talent before. However, he’s yet to put it all together. His performances are filled with poor turnovers, ill-timed throws, and a general lack of confidence.

For Jones supporters, the hope is that Schoen and Daboll will build up the offensive line around Jones and help him succeed. However, that logic isn’t based on much reality. The New York front office has yet to formally commit to Jones as their starting quarterback of the future. In fact, most of their moves this offseason seem to suggest they plan to move off the young QB sooner rather than later.

They declined to pick up Jones’ fifth-year option and signed Tyrod Taylor. Many expect Taylor to push Jones for the starting job during training camp. Should Jones struggle early in the year, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Taylor quickly replace him.

The Giants are reportedly looking to move draft picks into 2023

In this year’s draft, the Giants have two first-round picks, No. 5 and No. 7. It’s an excellent spot for a team looking to build up a new system. Many New York fans want the team to use both picks on players on the offensive side of the ball, in an attempt to surround Jones with talent.

However, according to a recent report by SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, that isn’t what the Giants’ new-look front office has in mind. Vacchiano is reporting they want to move one of these first-rounders back into 2023 — a draft class with more elite quarterback prospects.

According to multiple NFL sources, the Giants have signaled they are open to trading either the 5th or 7th overall pick in this years draft for a package that includes a first-rounder in 2023. And the more teams that are seeking quarterbacks, the more likely it is that they can.

It looks like New York is stockpiling picks for a 2023 QB

Maybe this is reading too deep into things, but it certainly appears the Giants are gearing up for a run at one of the blue-chip quarterback prospects set to be in the 2023 NFL Draft. Many analysts view Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud as legitimate franchise-caliber QBs.

Obviously, this spells trouble for Daniel Jones. On the outside looking in, it appears the Giants are setting a plan in place to find his replacement next offseason.

Maybe Jones has a stellar 2022 season and plays himself into another year with the Giants. However, as things currently stand, I wouldn’t bank on him being in Giants blue next year.
