2011 NFL Draft, Round 3: Giants Select Jerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy

The New York Giants selected Jerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy, with their third-round selection (83rd overall) in the 2011 NFL Draft. I can hear those of you insisting that the Giants absolutely had to draft a linebacker or a center screaming already, even though we know little to nothing about this guy.

Jernigan is a 5-foot-8, 185-pound receiver/return man. Here is a quick scouting report from Draft Countdown:

Best fit at the next level might come as a slot receiver and return specialist who can also be utilized in the Wildcat and on reverses --- Dynamic all-purpose playmaker who is a threat to score every time he touches the ball from anywhere on the field --- Just may be a bigger, much faster version of Dexter McCluster.

Still would be nice to get a linebacker and a center, but let's just see what happens. Your thoughts?
