The Buffalo News examines the bumper crop of receivers in the 2014 NFL Draft. This could end up being a record year for the number of wide receivers drafted. The News' post includes an interesting quote from Giants' coach Tom Coughlin:
"There isn’t any question those guys have got to come in and play. Are they ready to play? You can’t push them out there unless they’re ready to contribute," New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "They’re going to make errors, but hopefully those errors are eliminated as you go along and they become more professional and more thorough in how they play."
