2024 New York Giants Mock Draft: Amarius Mims, Xavier Legette Give Offensive Help

A month out from the draft, the New York Giants get more athletic and add offensive playmakers in our latest 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft.

The 2024 NFL Draft could be pivotal for the New York Giants, with question marks at several positions.

Could the Giants move up or trade down to maximize their opportunity? We put together a full 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft using the Pro Football Network Mock Draft Simulator multi-user experience, competing against and collaborating with several other PFN staff.

Multiple Trades To Start the Giants’ NFL Draft

With quarterbacks going in the first three picks and receivers being drafted at picks 4 and 5, the Giants decided to cash in on a desperate Denver Broncos team looking to trade up.

The Giants received pick 12 and 2025 first and third-round picks from Denver. Given the situation the Broncos find themselves in, these could be high selections.

Furthermore, although J.J. McCarthy was sitting there, if the Giants don’t love a QB in this class, they shouldn’t pull the trigger. They can’t make the same mistake they made with Daniel Jones. Instead, building up the roster and banking future capital becomes a priority in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft.

Then, ready to draft at No. 12 after moving back, the Giants were presented with another trade offer from the Las Vegas Raiders at No. 13.

The Raiders offered pick 13 and a 2025 second-round selection in exchange for picks 12 and 166 in the 2024 NFL Draft. This felt like good value because it’s only moving back one spot while converting a 2024 fifth-round selection into a 2025 second-round selection.

That means the Giants secured first, second, and third-round picks in 2025 by trading back. It arms New York with two first-round, two second-round, and two third-round picks that can be used to their advantage next season or make the most of the trade market.

Round 1, Pick 13 (From LV): Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

Finally, after much wheeling and dealing, the Giants made a selection in the first round of this 2024 NFL Mock Draft, using the 13th overall pick on Georgia OT Amarius Mims.

At 6’8” and 340 pounds, Mims is a monstrous tackle prospect who carries weight better than any player in the 2024 NFL Draft. A superb athlete with incredible movement skills, effortless power, and bend, if Mims can reach his ceiling, he can be the right tackle that New York has been missing.

Round 2, Pick 47 (From SEA): Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

There are plenty of opportunities to improve the wide receiver room in New York. Xavier Legette has the athletic upside to be the dominant force in the Giants’ passing attack.

Legette is an explosive receiver who plays with speed and physicality to create separation and neutralize opponents at the catch point. At 6’1” and 221 pounds, the former Gamecocks receiver has the NFL build, and with an RAS of 9.89, has the athletic traits to match.

Round 3, Pick 71 (From ARI): Cam Hart, CB, Notre Dame

The Giants traded the 70th and 183rd picks to the Arizona Cardinals for picks 71 and 138. New York essentially converts their sixth-round pick into an early fifth-round pick by moving back one spot.

Cam Hart can be the Giants’ starting corner opposite to 2023 NFL Draft selection Deonte Banks. The Notre Dame CB is a name the NFL seems to be higher on than the media consensus, and at 6’3” and 202 pounds, he has the physical profile to match.

A physical corner, Hart can jam routes and contest at the catch point. He also has smooth transitions and build-up speed to compete in all phases of the game.

Round 4, Pick 107: Cole Bishop, S, Utah

Cole Bishop has been a considerable riser through the pre-draft process, and grabbing him in Round 4 is an absolute steal, considering he’s highly likely to be a Day 2 pick.

The former Utah safety is extremely adaptable and has the size and athleticism to be scheme-versatile. At 6’2” and 205 pounds, Bishop ran a 4.45-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, and a RAS of 9.87 makes him one of the most athletic DBs in the class.

With Xavier McKinney leaving in free agency, the Giants are crying out for a young, athletic, high-motor prospect to play safety. Bishop would be a great answer.

Round 5, Pick 138: Jaylen Wright, RB, Tennessee

New York may have signed Devin Singletary in free agency, but he’s not the answer to the Saquon Barkley-shaped hole on the roster. While Singletary can be productive, he doesn’t possess the game-breaking twitch, speed, or athleticism Jaylen Wright offers from this 2024 NFL Draft class.

Wright would be the perfect complement to Singletary, forming a thunder-and-lightning combination. With his aggressive running style, great explosive speed, change of direction, and vision, Wright could eventually be the lead back in this rotation.
