Report Card: 2014 NFL Draft

Superstar Receiver Found

The Giants hit a home run with Beckham who was the rookie of the year in 2014. He has the potential to be one of the all time greats.

Drafted Starters The Team Needed Bad

In addition to Beckham, the Giants got a lot out of this rookie class in 2014. Richburg helped the offensive line when injuries to others gave him an opportunity. Williams gained experience as a starter, because of the injury troubles of Rashad Jennings. Kennard was a standout rookie at the linebacker position and Berhe may be put into a starting role in 2015.

Draft Grade: A

The 2014 Giants team struggled last season. Who knows how much worse it could have been if he did not do such a good job in the draft that year.
