The New York Giants are reportedly doing due diligence on their quarterback class ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft. New York is in deep negotiations with QB Daniel Jones, looking to extend the 25-year-old’s life and solidify him as a starting quarterback. However, negotiations with Jones have been difficult, according to reports, and the Giants are conducting research on this week’s Joint Scouting quarterback prospects, apparently as a contingency plan.

It was reported last week that the Giants were one of five teams to meet “wide” with Hendon Hooker, a verified Tennessee QB, in the 2023 Senior Bowl. Hooker, 25, is coming off a season-ending anterior cruciate ligament injury in 2022, but could be a potential second-round pick in this year’s draft.

It’s now reported that the Giants have met potential first-round draft pick Anthony Richardson at the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine this week (Jordan Schultz from the score).

Richardson is making headlines at the Scouting Combine this week, getting interest from every corner of the league. The Florida Gators producer reportedly crushed his interviews at the Combine (On The Pat McAfee Show).

“I spoke to a bunch of scouts last night… every one of them said ‘Anthony Richardson is the best QB interview they’ve had this year. ‘” “

In all likelihood, the Giants would give up any chance of drafting a quarterback prospect with one of their top picks. However, if they find a developmental prospect in the middle rounds, New York could venture into a quarterback for this year.

The Giants are confident that Daniel Jones will be their starting quarterback for 2023. But Joe Schoen has the right mindset to do due diligence on this year’s quarterback class in case the team needs to come up with a contingency plan if negotiations with Jones fail.

Whether it’s Anthony Richardson in the first round, Hendon Hooker in the second, or a wild CJ Stroud swap scenario proposed by CBS Sports, there are plenty of opportunities for the Giants to draft a starting quarterback this spring.
