Last season we saw a run of games where the offense just clicked. The Giants proved near unstoppable when they had the ball. For five games straight we were a juggernaut. Then things quickly started going downhill as several injuries to our top WR severely impacted our chances. Cruz was placed on IR too early. Losing Barden to IR and Smith and Hakeem in bunches destroyed our offensive continuity. We did see Manningham step up. Eli would surely like to have another weapon to groom. AJ Green and Julio Jones are out of the question since they will be taken earlier. The Giants are not drafting a WR in the first round, however there are 6 other rounds to address another target for Eli. You know the Gunslinger wants another toy in that toolbox he has. Now sure Kyle Rudolph could be an option in round one, but I don't think the Giants will gamble on him. Since Kevin Gilbride doesn't utilize the TE anyway I will take a look at a WR in rounds 2-4. The Giants love selecting WR in top 3 rounds. Go look it up if you don't believe me. I personally think the trend will continue.
Possible receivers available in rounds 2-4. Anyone is subject to slip due to injury/character concerns.
Torrey Smith - 6'1" 205 lbs (Maryland) This guy can run a sub 4.4 40 and is explosive in the return game. 41" vertical A good place for rookies to learn on the Giants.
Leonard Hankerson 6"2' 210 lbs (Miami) kind of reminds me of our very own Hakeem Nicks. Clocked at 4.45 in the 40. vertical 36" Should be a fringe 2nd rounder.
Jonathan Baldwin- 6'4" 230 lbs (Pitt) Ran a 4.45 with a 42" vertical. May slip due to character concerns. This guy is a huge target and he's actually got some wheels.
Jerrel Jernigan 5"9" 185 lbs (Troy) Lighting fast multiple sub 4.4 40 times posted. 38" vertical. Explosive in traffic, this is one guy I'm hoping the Giants target in round 3
Titus Young 5-11 175 lbs (Boise State) 4.43 4o time 35" vertical this guy is going to make big plays in the passing game.
Randall Cobb 5"10" 190 lbs (Kentucky) 4.43 40 time vertical 34" Cobb is an all purpose type player who the Giants could use in the return game.
Edmund Gates 6'0" 190 lbs (Abilene Christian) 4.35 40 time vertical 40" excellent talent from small school whos projected to go in the 3rd.
