OTA Preview: Giants wide receiver depth

Posted May 19, 2015

Giants.com spotlights the Giants' wide receivers heading into OTAs

Despite a solid core at the WR position, the Giants added another in the draft by taking Geremy Davis out of UConn.

The senior stands at 6’2 and 215 pounds and had 1,000 receiving yards as a junior, but Big Blue hopes his size will allow him to have an immediate impact on special teams as a gunner, much like teammate Dwayne Harris.

With Victor Cruz, Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle set to get most of the reps at wide receiver with Harris as the fourth option, there will be great competition for that fifth spot between Davis; Preston Parker, who thrived last year as a third option; Marcus Harris, who had a good camp last year before getting hurt; 2014 preseason standout Corey Washington; Julian Talley; Juron Criner; and undrafted free agent Ben Edwards.

If one or more of those receivers stand out, the Giants may keep six wide receivers, but only if they can get special teams contributions from those players.

Playing on coverage teams will be just as important as catching the football to be the last receiver onto the final 53.
