While most people will be at home on Easter Sunday enjoying the Holiday the Giants will be busy scouting. The Giants are headed to Ann Arbor to see Michigan quarterback JJ McCarthy in a private workout as Pat Leonard revealed on his show.

The speculation that the Giants will select their successor for Daniel Jones continues to grow after John Mara's quotes at the Owner's meeting.

"Everybody in the building wants Daniel Jones to succeed, but you can never let that get in the way if you make a judgement that there are people coming out in the draft who have a chance to be really good franchise-type players."

The Giants appear to be zeroing in on JJ McCarthy as their long-term plan at quarterback with the sixth overall pick. The Giants have also traveled to the Pro-Day's of Jayden Daniels, Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, and several others that are coming up.

If the Giants select a quarterback in the first round, it'll signal that this is Daniel Jones last season in New York. At the same time, we may see Jones start at quarterback to bridge the gap, or Jones may not play at all to ensure that he won't get hurt, which would keep the team from being able to release him without a bigger cap hit.

Giants Draft getting tough to predict

In most years you can clearly tell where most teams will go with their first-round pick, but this year it's nearly impossible with New York. The team has significant needs at quarterback, cornerback, and wide receiver while no one would be shocked if they drafted a tackle moving on from Evan Neal.

The thing that makes the Giants even harder to get a read on is holding the sixth pick, where a quarterback-hungry team can easily jump the Giants to land McCarthy or another quarterback.
