Wide Receivers

The Giants are still looking for someone to replace Odell Beckham Jr.’s production on the field. They have tried to do it by committee, but they’re still missing a true number one receiver. Sterling Shepard has performed well but missed multiple games due to concussions last season.

Golden Tate is entering his eleventh season and he missed the first four games of the 2019 season due to suspension and only posted 676 yards on the year.

Darius Slayton showed promise in his rookie season as he quickly established a connection with Daniel Jones, but it still wasn’t nearly the production of Beckham Jr. However, the Giants chose not to use any of their draft picks on pass catchers.

The Giants did however sign three undrafted receivers who could potentially help the Giants out In the near future. All three went to big schools but failed to make a big enough impact during their time.

Two receivers; Binjimen Victor and Austin Mack went to Ohio State, while Derrick Dillon played for the champion LSU Tigers. Stuck playing behind some big-name receivers last season, Dillon started three games for LSU and scored two touchdowns for the national champs. All will have a chance to compete for a roster spot.
