2012 NFL Draft Round 2: Giants Select Rueben Randle, WR, LSU

Well, New York Giants fans, there is your wide receiver. The Giants selected Rueben Randle with the final pick of the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft Friday night.

Here is on Randle, a 6-foot-3, 207-pound junior:

Randle is a big-play receiver who watched his game take off the past two seasons. He offers the size, pass-catching skill and speed to develop into a No. 1 wideout at the next level. Randle comes with a lot of upside, and his next-level skills are underrated as we move toward the draft.

The way offensive linemen were dropping I thought the Giants might go there, particularly with Bobby Massie. The Giants also passed on Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen. But, another weapon for Eli Manning and a guy who will join the competition with Jerrel Jernigan, Ramses Barden and Domenik Hixon to be the defending Super Bowl champions third wide receiver.
