Speculation about the New York Giants' starting quarterback won't end anytime soon, especially after one NFL analyst claimed Drew Lock looks like the favorite to take that spot next season, even if Daniel Jones is fully healthy.

Even beyond next season, the Giants are expected to make some moves at QB. According to ESPN's Jordan Reid, the Giants could give up on Jones after next season if he's unable to recover his best form. The veteran quarterback is currently rehabbing his ACL and the team hopes to see his best version again.

However, Reid believes the Giants will try to move up to draft Georgia QB Carson Beck in his latest mock draft. This situation would see the Giants trading up from No. 4 to No. 1 to put their hands on Beck, apparently the best quarterback of the 2025 class.

After a notable 2022 season, where he led the Giants to the divisional round in the NFL playoffs, he was a shell of himself last campaign. After struggling with injuries, he was ruled out for the season in November, raising some eyebrows within the Giants organization and around the NFL.

Next year, Jones will have the chance to prove himself again and send a message to his doubters. Otherwise, Drew Lock will be more than ready to take over from him. Moreover, the team could move on from him altogether, especially without any more guaranteed money on his current deal.

Carson Beck is one of the most talented quarterbacks in his class, set to compete with Colorado's Shedeur Sanders and Texas' Quin Ewers to become the No. 1 overall pick next year. The Bulldogs play-caller has stood out in a class that isn't as stacked as this year's, but he can make enough noise to catch the attention of QB-needy teams like the Giants.
