If you read mock drafts at all, it shouldn’t take long before you see some trends emerge. One of the strongest is the New York Giants being projected to select a wide receiver at eleventh overall. The exact receiver selected changes depending on the drafter and how the first ten picks fall, but a top pass catcher to the Giants is almost a given.

And it really makes sense given how the Giants’ offense has played recently. Their lack of a true “number one” receiver who can man the X position and draw double teams has held the offense back and limited the receivers they do have.

We’ve talked about various receivers quite a bit already, and we will continue to do so, but it’s time for The Chris and Joe Show to take our first look at the wide receiver class as a whole.

In this podcast

  • What kind of receiver should the Giants look for?
  • What about the pass catchers at the top of the draft?
  • Should the Giants target day two for a wide receiver?
  • Could they double-dip at the position and select multiple receivers?
