In his second year, Beckham will look to play a full 16-game season and continue to succeed against what will likely be even more attention put on him by opposing defenses.

Victor Cruz is rehabbing his torn patellar tendon, and according to Cruz and Tom Coughlin, the hope is that he will be ready to work with the team when training camp begins in August.

Cruz has proven himself to be one of the best receivers in football, and he is working extremely hard at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center to return to full strength.

Rueben Randle came on at the end of his third season and showed flashes of ability to be a consistent weapon in Ben McAdoo's offense.

In his last two games of the year, Randle caught a combined 12 passes for 290 yards and a touchdown. If he continues to mature and improve, he could be a top weapon outside with the size and speed to make big plays.

Preston Parker went from building tiki huts in 2013 to being a fairly consistent third wide receiver for the Giants in 2014. He caught 36 passes for more than 400 yards and two touchdowns and provided a gritty toughness that allowed him to succeed in the middle of the field out of the slot.

Dwayne Harris is a new addition this offseason, and while his major contributions for the Cowboys were on special teams, he could factor into the Giants offense as a receiver and a blocker in the running game. He was often put on the field in short yardage situations for the Cowboys due to his willingness and ability to block.

Corey Washington wowed Giants fans in the preseason last year but spent most of his rookie year learning valuable skills and lessons on the practice field and in the meeting room. At 6-4, he has a ton of potential if he can continue to hone his wide receiver skills.

The Giants also opted to bring back Kevin Ogletree this offseason, a veteran that has played for four different teams over seven seasons in the NFL. Other players like Juron Criner, Marcus Harris, Chris Harper and Julian Talley will also have a chance to compete for a spot on the roster.
