Giants Find Daniel Jones Replacement in ‘Super Early’

A ‘Super Early’ 2025 mock draft finds the Giants a Daniel Jones replacement.

The New York Giants select Georgia quarterback Carson Beck in the 2025 mock draft.

In Jordan Reid’s “extremely early” 2025 mock draft, the New York Giants adopt one of their rivals’ most tried-and-true tactics.

Reid instructs the Giants to adopt the Philadelphia Eagles’ strategy and choose quarterback Carson Beck of the Georgia Bulldogs with their first pick in the upcoming spring draft. The Giants passed on a thrower in the first round of the draft, choosing to give aerial assistance for incumbent Daniel Jons, which made waves.
Reid claims that the Giants won’t be as understanding the next time.

“The Giants showed some faith in Daniel Jones recapturing his 2022 form off his torn ACL this season by passing on the quarterbacks still on the board at No. 6 last week,” noted Reid. “But things could change by this time next year, especially since there will be no more guaranteed money on Jones’ contract.”

“Beck is one of the most talented QBs in the country, as he finished the 2023 season with a 72.4% completion rate (fourth-best in FBS) and an 86 QBR (fifth).”

Beck was a backup on the Bulldogs’ back-to-back national champion groups in 2021-22 behind Stetson Bennett but impressed in his first tour as a starter last season. He’s expected to reprise his role as Georgia’s starting quarterback when the season opens against Clemson in Atlanta this August. Beck was a highly-touted prospect out of his native Jacksonville and put up 24 touchdown passes while guiding Georgia to a 13-1 record.

In this early mock draft, Reid has the Giants trade with the Carolina Panthers for the first choice in order to acquire Beck. The order was established by flipping Super Bowl odds for the 2024–25 season from ESPN Bet. Though Carolina had already given up its 2023 first-round pick to the Chicago Bears, it would have had the first pick in this year’s selection.

“We don’t know which team will actually have the No. 1 pick next year, but I could certainly see the Giants making a call to whoever it is to try to get there,” said Reid. “The Giants would have to package something in the ballpark of a second-rounder and their 2026 first-rounder — but it’s too early to map all of that out.”

It is obvious to anyone who follows Giants football in the slightest that Jones has a lot of pressure to establish himself as the team’s starting quarterback going forward. Reid’s very early mockery won’t likely be the last of its like unless Jones demonstrates the kind of consistency that his first five seasons have all too sadly lacked.
