    2019 Redraft: A Better Option for Giants at No. 6?

    The New York Giants' decision to draft Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick in 2019 seemed to immediately cause a divide among fans who were hoping for either outside linebacker Josh Allen or, well, anyone other than the former Duke signal caller. Jones went on to have a decent rookie campaign but then went through a lot of ups and downs (mostly downs) since then which have also included durability issues. Alas, there are no mulligans for the Giants or any team for that matter to re-do past draft picks, but if such a do-over system did exist, Kristopher Knox of Bleacher Report believes the Giants should have selected receiver Deebo Samuel, who ultimately went to the 49ers.

    San Francisco 49ers' Day 3 pick, Year 1 starter: WR Jacob Cowing

    The 49ers come into the 2024 season with an interesting first-world problem: They have two top receivers in Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel who present different and pressing financial issues. For Samuel, it's that he's entering the big-money part of the three-year, $71.55 million contract extension he signed in 2022 -- a pact that has him with a 2024 salary cap charge of nearly $29 million. For Aiyuk, it's the need to get paid like the top-tier receiver he has become; he's currently in the final year of the four-year, $12,531,350 contract he signed in 2020 as the 25th overall draft pick out of Arizona State. The 49ers don't really have an alpha dog receiver in the Justin Jefferson or Ja'Marr Chase sense; as gifted as both Samuel and Aiyuk are, they're more elite cogs in Kyle Shanahan's masterful system than scheme-transcendent players.
