2. Daniel Jones, New York Giants

The New York Giants could have a serious problem on their hands. In the first season after handing Daniel Jones a 4-year, $160 million contract, the Giants' offense is a mess and Jones is out for the season. Now, after backup Tyrod Taylor went down to injury, it's undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito who gets a shot and came away with his first NFL win this past week.

The Giants have a whole lot of issues, and Jones looked to regress this year before he got hurt. Now, the Giants' offensive line is also not good, and their wide receiving core is one of the worst situations in the league. Just last season, Jones had his best year as a pro and truly proved he could take care of the football.

Maybe, with the right weapons around him, Jones still has a future. But, it might not be in New York, as the Giants could be pacing for a top-5 pick and a shot at one of the best quarterbacks in the 2024 class. If the Bucs dealt for Jones and he didn't end up panning out, Tampa Bay could get out of that contract in 2025 and save $19 million in doing so.

We're not sure if New York plans to move on just yet, so this is a situation that is worth monitoring until that final draft order is set.
