Right after nailing their future quarterback, the Giants find themselves in another great scenario to land their pick of a handful of solid second-round wide receivers to bolster their offense with another dangerous playmaker. They run with one of the notable names from the Michigan Wolverines title team in Roman Wilson. 

The ninth-ranked wide receiver on PFF’s big board, Wilson was one of J.J. McCarthy’s biggest weapons during their national title run and will offer the Giants a versatile receiving threat that can play alongside the likes of Darius Slayton, Wan’Dale Robinson and Jalin Hyatt. The senior is coming off a team-leading campaign with 48 receptions for 789 yards and 12 touchdowns, all surpassing his prior stats with the Wolverines. 

Wilson can serve as a true vertical threat alongside Slayton in the Giants offense. He averaged a whopping 16.4 yards per catch in 2023, a contested catch rate of 37.5%, and was targeted at an average of 13.9 yards. Yet, he can also take on some work in the slot and in screen looks, pending the Giants can get their blocking straight after an abysmal showing last season. 

The Giants have to surround Daniel Jones with the right playmakers this fall, and Wilson is one player they trust and who knows how to get separation and secure the catch.
