Giants Need No. 2 Receiver
The New York Giants have essentially one wide receiver on their roster. Odell Beckham Jr. Victor Cruz recently restructured his deal to stay with the team, but has not played since October of 2014 and isn't a certainty due to his injury history. So what do the Giants need to do in order to get another receiver to pair with Beckham Jr.?
The Giants clearly need to add another weapon on the offensive side of the ball after swinging and missing on free agents Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu who they looked to pair alongside Beckham Jr. Now they have a few options left.
Option one is to sign a veteran. Anquan Boldin and Nate Washington are available and on the Giants radar. Boldin's production has been quite steady in his 30's thus far and with the Giants seemingly in a 'win now' mode, would be a great fit to an offense that is expected to pass the ball a lot. Washington is more of a possession receiver who is a decent blocker as well, but note quite the threat that Boldin poses. Washington will have the better price tag, but Boldin will give them better production. We'll see if the Giants decide to go that route.
The other obvious option is the draft. With the 10th-pick the giants will not go after a wide receiver. Unless LaQuon Treadwell runs a ridiculous 40-yard-dash at his pro day, the Giants may not look to address this position until the second round. TCU prospect Josh Doctson would be the perfect fit for the Giants should he fall to them in the second round. Doctson is 6'4", 190 pounds and has a great set of hands and a knack for getting in the end-zone. A tall receiver is exactly what QB Eli Manning likes (remember Plaxico Burress?) and would make the Giants offense even more potent.
What do you think the Giants should do with the wide receiver position?
