Buckle up, New York Giants fans. An NFL insider believes the team could be targeting a certain quarterback in the third round later this evening.

The Giants have made it clear they're not committing to Daniel Jones for the longterm. The team announced earlier this week it's not picking up his fifth-year option. That means 2022 could be his last season with the NFC East franchise.

It'd be wise for the Giants to take a chance on a quarterback in the remaining rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft. An insider thinks that's exactly what could happen.

If Sam Howell slides to the first round, NFL insider Ralph Vacchiano believes the Giants could take him.

"Would they do it? Would they take a developmental QB and add it to their list of options for 2023? The 6-1, 218-pound Howell is the one who seemingly got their attention the most the last few months," he said, via SNY. "He can run and he’s got a strong arm, but he lacks consistency and needs time to develop. Hard to imagine the Giants would take a QB in Round 2, but don’t rule him out if he’s still available in Round 3."

Howell has high upside, but is still considered a project. That's a good scenario for a team like the Giants, who'd still like to give Jones a shot.

The Giants will make three picks tonight, starting with the 36th overall in the second round.
