Ten most exciting new QB-pass catcher combos for 2021

5. New York Giants
Daniel Jones and Kenny Golladay

Zach Wilson isn't the only Big Apple quarterback whose new pass-catchers should have him smiling. Kenny Golladay was the top receiver on the free-agent market, and he was paid as such, landing a contract for four years and $72 million. For their money, the Giants were able to give Daniel Jones the first bona fide No. 1 receiver of his NFL career. Yes, Golladay struggled to stay healthy in 2020, but he also has a pair of 1,000-yard seasons on his resume, including his 2019 Pro Bowl campaign, when he led the NFL with 11 TD catches, and you can't underestimate the importance of a trustworthy, difference-making target in a QB's development. Between Golladay, explosive rookie playmaker Kadarius Toney, veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph and the return to health of running back Saquon Barkley, Jones' supporting cast will be as good as it's ever been -- which means the Giants will have a clear idea of whether the 2019 first-round pick is a franchise QB by season's end. (For the record, I think the answer to that question is yes.)

James Bradberry
CB · 27 years old

With 474 snaps on the left and 396 on the right in 2020, per NGS, Bradberry traveled more than most CBs. In fact, he was one of just two corners to play 350-plus snaps on each side last season. Measuring his computer vision-derived coverage ability (passes defensed, targets resulting in no catch, interceptions and allowing fewer than 1 yard of YAC per catch), Bradberry had his best season to date. PFF agrees with my data, showing that Bradberry allowed just a career-low 70.1 passer rating last season.
