One 2024 Draft Target For Every NFC East Team

Despite the AFC North having a decent argument for the crown, the NFC East is easily the most intensely contested division in the NFL. Between the Cowboys being contenders, the Eagles making the Superbowl last year, the Giants winning a playoff game in 2023, and the Commanders being the Commanders, each team is looking for a leg up.

To get better, you have to target the specific needs that your opponents exploit. Here is the main prospect that each team in the NFC East should target.

Get ready for the NFL Draft with!

New York Giants: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

While the Giants could look to go quarterback here, it doesn't make much sense. Between the likelihood that the very high-quality quarterbacks are gone by pick six and Daniel Jones being under contract for three more seasons, it would not be the best use of the pick.

Instead, with the potential likelihood of your primary weapon, Saquon Barkley, leaving, you give your struggling quarterback another elite target who has everything they need to succeed. Nabers' speed is incredible, and in an offense with Wan'Dale Robinson and Darren Waller, they could open up and stretch the field for a lackluster Giants offense.

Washington Commanders: Drake Maye, QB, UNC

The Commanders have been nothing short of a dumpster fire the past few seasons, and after trading the 2020 second overall pick in Chase Young at the trade deadline, you need consistency and to see someone stay long-term.

Maye is incredibly consistent and a very safe selection. With a new head coach and offensive coordinator, they will likely want to draft their guy to run the offense rather than return to Sam Howell. Howell was less than impressive after leading the NFL in interceptions this past year. Maye makes the most sense, and with Williams likely taken at number one, it is the best option on the board.

Philadelphia Eagles: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

The Eagles love pro-ready, SEC defenders. Demonstrated by their love for the Georgia front seven, it makes sense they would trust Alabama for the defensive backs. The Eagles' secondary looked like Swiss cheese this past year, getting torched left and right by quarterbacks regardless of talent.

McKinstry is incredibly pro-ready and intelligent for his position. He will also serve a valuable spot as he takes over the role of James Bradberry, who shouldn't return after his final few weeks of the season. McKinstry would be a beneficial acquisition and a day-one starter for the Eagles if they could snag him in the first round.

Dallas Cowboys: Quinton Mitchell, CB, Toledo

Mitchell is a freak athlete who will be needed if the Cowboys want to stop the lightning-quick receivers in their division. At 6'0, 195 pounds, Mitchell already has good size and length for the position.

This gets even better when you throw the fact that he runs a 4.35 40-yard dash into the mix. If Nabers goes to New York, the Cowboys will have to worry about guarding AJ Brown, Terry McLaurin, and Malik Nabers/Wan'Dale Robinson six times a year. Mitchell would spark this secondary, replace Gilmore, and partner with Daron Bland and Trevon Diggs in a few years.
