The countdown keeps shrinking for the 2023 NFL Draft and people can’t wait to see who the NY Giants end up taking in the first round. There’s a lot of pressure on general manager Joe Schoen to get things right this season. No one can argue he killed it in the draft last spring, bringing in Kavyon Thibodeaux and Evan Neal in the first round.
Now, Schoen is focused on bringing in even more help on both sides of the ball. With the first-round selection, the Giants hold the No. 26 overall pick, but they’ll actually be calling in 25th thanks to Miami losing it’s top selection this year.
So, who will Schoen rock with when NY is on the clock? We think he’ll end up going with a stud wideout:
NY Giants Mock Draft Round 1: Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt
As you might have been able to guess, we’ve got the New York Giants going with Jalin Hyatt in the first round, and other mocks out there agree. The fact of the matter here is that the Giants need a young wideout to step in a be a playmaker for this offense.
The expectation is that he’ll still be on the board when it’s time for the G-Men to send in their selection. There’s several other top wide receiver targets that fans would love to see make their way to East Rutherford, but they may not be available. Those prospects include Quentin Johnston, Jordan Addison and Jaxon Smith-Njigba.
Hyatt would still be a great addition, and he put up some impressive numbers last season for the Tennessee Volunteers. Hyatt, a 6-0, 175-pounder, hauled in 67 balls for 1,267 yards and 15 touchdowns. He may not be the biggest WR, but he has great hands and speed. We’ve love to see him join New York.
