The Giants will take a closer look at Michigan national champion QB J.J. McCarthy after a busy week of NFL Draft prep and quarterback scouting.

A Giants contingent is scheduled to descend on Ann Arbor, Mich., on Easter Sunday for a private workout with McCarthy, according to a source, .

McCarthy, 21, who went 27-1 as a college starter, already took a Top 30 visit to the Giants in East Rutherford, N.J. And Giants assistant GM Brandon Brown and QB coach Shea Tierney attended Michigan’s pro day.

Now GM Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll are digging deeper into the quarterbacks on this week’s pro day circuit, including their highly-anticipated stop in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Thursday, though, Schoen and Daboll first attended Washington’s pro day to see Huskies QB Michael Penix Jr. and a deep, talented roster that includes wide receivers Rome Odunze, Ja’Lynn Polk and Jalen McMillan.

Daboll, Schoen, offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, Tierney and wide receivers coach Mike Groh all were at Washington’s pro day, according to Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy.

That came after Wednesday’s LSU pro day to see Tigers QB Jayden Daniels and wide receiver Malik Nabers. The Giants had dinner with Nabers on Tuesday night prior to his workout, too, per NFL Network.

Thursday, meanwhile, the Giants also had people at North Carolina’s pro day for QB Drake Maye’s workout. But they also have plans to meet with Maye and work him out in the coming days to take a closer look, per NFL Network.

Schoen holds six picks in April’s NFL Draft, including the No. 6 overall selection. And the Giants are doing diligent work on the quarterbacks at the top.

Co-owner John Mara said he endorses selecting a QB at No. 6, or even in a trade up, if Schoen and Daboll fall in love with a passer and have conviction about his talent and fit. And Mara said his GM and coach told him this is the best group of quarterbacks they have seen in years.
