Michael Eisen:
This will be my 30th Giants draft and it's a rare occurrence that surprises me on draft day. The Giants selecting a wide receiver in the first three rounds would not be one of those occurrences.

Jerry Reese has spoken many times of his desire to acquire as many weapons as possible. In today's NFL, there is no better or more lethal weapon than a productive wide receiver.

If the Giants brought one in to team with Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle, it wouldn't surprise me at all.

John Schmeelk:
Absolutely not. With the Giants' best-player-available philosophy, if a wide receiver on the board is by far the best player on their board in any of the top three rounds, they'll likely take that player.

**Even with Odell Beckham Jr.'s great year and Rueben Randle's late season emergence, the Giants could use help at the wide receiver position, especially with Victor Cruz still recovering from his knee injury.

Dan Salomone:
Not at all. Aside from the talent in this year's class and the success we saw from the 2014 group, the Giants have taken a wide receiver in the first three rounds in seven of the last nine drafts.

You need playmakers in this league, you need as many as you can get, and you can never have too many on the roster. I wouldn't even be surprised if they take one in the first round if that's the way the dominos fall.
