Like that guy in your local gym who hasn't done leg day in years, the Giants' depth chart at wide receiver is top heavy: There's Odell Beckham, and then there's basically everyone else.
Victor Cruz has had a nice career, but he missed the entire 2015 campaign because of injury. Rueben Randle, who had just under 800 yards and eight touchdowns last year, switched teams but stayed in the division and is now an Eagle. The other six pass catchers on the roster have a combined 90 NFL receptions.
Needless to say, Eli Manning is going to need another target to throw to, and with NFL free agency's hot period now in the rearview mirror, New York may be looking toward the draft to find that new option.
With that in mind, Evan Silva of Rotoworld.com lists wideout as the team's biggest need. His colleague Josh Norris, however, thinks they won't address that position until the second round of the league's wildly popular and pivotal offseason event, where he projects them taking Oklahoma WR Sterling Shepard after selecting Georgia defender Leonard Floyd at No. 10:
"Shepard’s game is awesome, and he would be great in a yards after catch type situation. He creates separation with footwork, little wasted movement and quickness. Shepard also flashes winning contested situations. I still think Laquon Treadwell (or another receiver) should be considered at No. 10, but others don’t."
Even though Norris is predicting the Giants' decision-makers will choose defensive line help over a playmaker in the draft's opening round, he acknowledges in his explanation that, while others are discounting the likes of Treadwell or other prospects like Michael Thomas and Josh Doctson hearing their name called when Big Blue turns in their card, he's not a part of that crowd.
The team that finished third in the division in 2015 will likely go on the clock with all of the receivers still available: Our Ben Standig doesn't have one coming off the board until No. 15. If things do shake down like that, they'll have the opportunity to take whichever outside threat they prefer.
Eli Manning would probably enjoy the Giants going in that direction. Redskins corners, meanwhile, are a different story.
