Experts grade Giants pick of WR Geremy Davis

Read rapid reactions on the Giants' sixth-round (186th overall) draft choice Geremy Davis, a senior wide receiver out of the University of Connecticut.

"Good size and is a really skilled receiver, particularly in the middle of the field. Lacks the speed to make an impact on the outside but an underrated prospect."

"This is a big (6-foot-2, 216 pounds) and strong (23 bench-press reps, tied for most his position, at the combine) wide receiver who does a decent job of using his size to his advantage in traffic. He's not known for his speed or his separation or his hands, but that's why he's in the sixth round, right? When you take guys in this round, you're looking for people who have some skills and physical traits and can try to work their way up on special teams, and Davis is one of those team-captain types the Giants have been trying to scoop up in these past couple of drafts. Best-case scenario, he develops sometime down the road as a red zone target or maybe converts to tight end. Worst-case scenario, he's scary as heck on coverage units."

"Good height and bulk with average hand span and slightly above average arm length. Three-cone and short shuttle times are both quicker than five-year Combine average for receivers. Ran well at pro day. Voted 2014 team captains by teammates. Takes care of himself and hard worker in the weight room."

"The [Giants] took Geremy Davis? Awesome. Love him and that pick."
