3 Receivers Who Could Be Draft Steals:

  • Phillip Dorsett (76th Overall): Dorsett is a speed demon. He can burn by any cornerback. If he can develop into a great overall receiver and not just a deep threat, he could be better than the 3rd round grade I gave him indicates.
  • Stefon Diggs: (83rd Overall): I saw how special Diggs can be, as I watch a good bit of Terps football. If it were not for two season ending injuries, this receiver would be talked about in the first two rounds. He has big play potential, if he can stay on the field.
  • Justin Hardy (90th Overall): This could be a Wes Welker like player. He is undersized but productive. In 2014 he had an incredible 121 receptions, 1,494 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Big Jump To the NFL, Are they Ready:

More from NY Giants Draft

  • Ali Marpet (77th Overall): Marpet is from Hobart, a small school where he was the only NFL player caliber player around. He has the physical tool set to be a great guard but it will be a big transition. He looked great at the Senior Bowl, which really helped his stock with me.
  • D’Joun Smith (98th Overall): Smith is a speedy corner who is overly qualified from a athletic ability standpoint. The Florida Atlantic cornerback has the ability but the NFL game is such a big jump from the level he played on in college.

The Other Kevin White:

White (94th overall) was a physical man corner at TCU. When TCU played West Virginia, he got to play against the other Kevin White, a top 10 selection in this draft for sure. The TCU cornerback played really well and limited the mega star receiver to 3 receptions for 28 yards. This showed me that he can be a disruptive cornerback, that the Giants should take if he is there in the 4th round.
