If the New York Giants do not re-sign star running back Saquon Barkley, they’ll need to put a lot of resources into their wide receiver unit this offseason. Many mock drafts expect New York to use their first-round pick on a wide receiver (Malik Nabers or Rome Odunze), but that will not be enough.

The Giants must sign a competent veteran wide receiver that starting quarterback Daniel Jones can lean on next season. CBS Sports Cody Benjamin put together a free agency mock draft and has the Giants signing wide receiver Gabe Davis.

Davis would give them a premier speed threat on the outside, and he’s familiar with Giants head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen, who was in Buffalo with the 24-year-old wide receiver.

If Davis were to sign with New York, it would be the perfect addition as he gives them another speed threat on the perimeter outside of Darius Slayton and Jaylin Hyatt.  Slayton recorded 50 receptions (79 targets) for 770 yards and four touchdowns in 2023. Meanwhile, Hyatt produced 23 receptions (40 targets) for 373 yards.

The 6-foot-2 wide receiver had a solid 2023 season in Buffalo, playing alongside star wideout Stefon Diggs. Davis recorded 45 receptions (81 targets) for 746 yards and seven touchdowns. He has scored 27 receiving touchdowns in his four years with the Bills and averaged 16.7 yards per catch.

The Giants are projected to have at least $30 million in cap space, so they should have enough to pursue Davis in free agency. Spotrac projects Davis to get a four-year, $54 million deal in free agency, which is about right for a wide receiver of his caliber.
