| and the Giants are thin at WR. I'm surprised drafting a WR isn't getting more play around here.
Why surprised? They have a great #1. They have a solid #2, who's an awesome asset in the running game vis a vis his blocking. They have a solid pass catching specialist type of TE with WR deep speed and good RAC who's just beginning to tap his potential. They have a great pass catching RB and a 2nd RB or two (if Perkins gets healthy) who are both solid receivers out of the backfield. Heck, their FB Penny can catch. They need to re-sign one or two of their FA WRs, but whom among them is going to receive a huge offer? Lattimer - nope, can't stay in the field. Coleman- nope bust at WR to this point, mostly, certainly relative to his draft position. Shepard II, Fowler?
Yeah in a deep WR class they will find someone to nab in the fifth round that has upside, at least.
Right now I'm betting Emmanuel Hall out of Mizzou won't go in the first 4 rounds - he hasn't produced much in terms of quantity in college, missed a bunch of time as a true JR last year, and skipped out on the Senior bowl (apparently without offering any excuse or reason) where his buddy and teammate QB Lock was shining.
He's got as many or more red flags than Stephon Diggs did coming out, and he maybe a faster, quicker version of Diggs if someone screws his head on straight. Watch him blow up the combine...
But with all the other dreadful needs the giants have - pass rush, LBs, free safety, another corner, OL, OL, OL, why would people focus on a 3rd WR who would be the team's 5th receiving option?
