Slayton - TDs since week 5 of 2019

BestFeature : 9/16/2020 8:59 pm
Just this on the Giants FB page. Darius Slayton has 10 TDs since week 5 of 2019, the most in the NFL since that time.

Not bad for a #2 receiver.
Like this guy a lot

Eli hooked up with him too in his final two swan song games.

That deep post on Monday was real nice. Great throw too.

Looks like a play-maker. Just going about his business too, no antics.

Every time I see an interview with him it seems like he has a good head on his shoulders. Breath of fresh air after OBJ. Now hopefully he doesn't have some life altering catch.
Obviously not as talented

and completely different player but he’s got a Larry Fitz vibe to him the way he goes about his business

I tell you what today in his current form I'm not sure I'd take OBJ over him, even without the antics. I think OBJ is not the same player he once was.
Loved Slayton in college.

Thought it was a steal when we got him in the 5th round. He's a player.

What confused me is that it seemed like his one big negative were his drops. But I don't think that should be enough to drop someone to the 5th round. I remember that was a big negative for Julio Jones too. I guess he wasn't super productive, but who was throwing him the ball?

It wasn't the only reason he dropped. He played for an offense that was extremely run oriented. There was a ton of projection with him. It's understandable that he was drafted where he was. He was an upside type player with unknowns.
Ever since his first TD as a Giant

I have kept an eye on him. And loved what I saw.

I am all in on Slayton.

And he hasn't even reached his potential yet.

He’s a #1

receiver imo
I remember reading on here  
JB_in_DC : 9/17/2020 8:37 am : link
during camp last year that someone was sitting next to his father. At that point he had been banged up and even making the team wasn't a 100% given. He's come a long way from then - and now a big part of the future here.
Best pick by far during Gettleman years

taking into account the round chosen.

Agree!
He is a #1 receiver and he is the Giants #1 receiver.
I’ll admit it. I wasn’t high on him  
rasbutant : 9/17/2020 2:57 pm : link
The videos I watched of him I saw drop after drop, uncontested drops and stopped watching, said this isn’t an NFL receiver.

Glad I was wrong. I can’t think of a single drop in the NFL. Could probably look that stat up, wonder if he has any.
He seems like a legit #1 WR to me  
ShockNRoll : 9/17/2020 5:30 pm : link
I'm no scout or anything, but I've watched a ton of football, and he runs good routes, creates separation, has good hands, he's fast, quick, makes contested catches, has good body control, just an all around very good WR. The fact that he has such a good rapport with Jones is encouraging as well. I think we could be looking at an 1100-1200 yard, 10-12 TD season from him.
Love him already.  
Dave in Hoboken : 9/17/2020 5:33 pm : link
Very happy to have purchased his jersey a couple of weeks ago. Already even further proves that he's the real deal with that 41 yard TD in Week 1. (Great pass from Jones, too)>
