We have said multiple times throughout the offseason that the New York Giants have openings at the bottom of the roster for one or more young, unproven wide receivers. Can Binjimen Victor earn one of those spots?
Let’s take a closer look at the former Ohio State Buckeye.
Position: Wide receiver
Contract: Year 1 of three-year, $2.295 million undrafted free agent deal | Guaranteed: $40,000
How he got here
Victor had an unspectacular career at Ohio State, catching 83 passes. He caught 23, 21, and 35 in his final three seasons, and averaged a solid 16.1 yards per catch over his career with 18 touchdowns.
In a scouting report, The Draft Network said:
Ohio State wide receiver Binjimen Victor enters the NFL with modest production as a Buckeye but his flashes of big play potential are exciting. Victor offers a massive catch radius with good ball skills and a surprising amount of post-catch ability. With that said, Victor is built like a pencil with disappointing play strength and poor route running skills. Victor has appealing physical upside but he’s underdeveloped in critical areas so patience is required.
Nick Falato recently broke down the Giants’ fourth wide receiver competition. Victor, Austin Mack, and Derrick Dillon are all undrafted free agents who are competing for backup receiver roles.
Of Victor, Falato wrote that his “catch radius intrigues me, but his lack of athletic ability and physicality may be a problem.”
I will agree with Falato that Victor has some intriguing skills and measurables, but that the practice squad is the likely place for hm to land whenever the 2020 season begins.
