It’s been a couple of months, but fans are still not over the New York Giants trading away their best player, Odell Beckham, Jr.  It’s was a massive loss, that Big Blue will have to find a way to fill.

It’s tough to imagine any single player can recreate what Odell Beckham Jr. did for the New York Giants. it’s to believe to this team knows what it’s doing after the now infamous “We didn’t sign him to trade him” line blew up in GM Dave Gettleman’s face.

Post draft, the New York Giants have a young and inexperienced receiving corps with Sterling Shepard being the longest-tenured Big Blue receiver.  It is likely the team will also find ways to continue to incorporate tight end Evan Engram and running back Saquon Barkley in the passing game. Shepard along with newly signed Golden Tate are guaranteed to start right away, but the third receiver slot still remains wide open.

Former Cleveland Browns first-round pick Corey Coleman is looking to finally have a breakout season in the NFL and this could be the opportunity. The 2015 Biletnikoff Award winner, as the nations best college receiver, has not been able to find that success in the league, but the team fully supports him and knows that he has the skills to be great.

Another holdover that will compete for that this spot is Cody Latimer. Latimer was with the team last season but only played in six games due to injury. He played in the season finale and had his best game with New York, which is something he can hopefully build on. Latimer is also versatile enough to return punts which is another way the team can keep him involved if he can stay healthy.

Here is a look at some other receivers the Giants picked up this offseason.
