With the 186th pick in the 6th Round of the 2015 NFL Draft, the New York Giants have selected wide receiver Geremy Davis from the University of Connecticut. Davis had an undrafted grade by many and it definitely puts this pick into question.
He brings size -at 6’2″ and 216 pounds- to the position, but doesn’t have the necessary speed to be much of a difference maker at the next level. I see this pick more of a special teams player than a real contributor on the offensive side of the football.

What makes me question this pick even more is that the Giants already have guys like Kevin Ogletree, Corey Washington and Marcus Harris fighting for that 4th and 5th receiver spot. Why bring another 4th or 5th guy onto the roster?
The only way this pick makes much sense is if he makes the transition to the tight end position. If he can add some extra weight than I understand considering the Giants lack of depth at the position.
At Connecticut, Davis caught 165 passes for 2,287 yards and 7 touchdowns. So, there was some production, but the knock on Davis was that he lost some snaps to younger players during his senior year.
Could he be just a camp body? It’s way to early to tell. To grade any draft at this point is way to premature because we have no idea what the future holds. Victor Cruz is coming back from a major injury as is Harris. The Giants might feel as though the status for both are in question going into 2015.
This pick could be very much an insurance policy, which isn’t a bad idea considering the Giants have been decimated by injuries to just about every position over the past 2 seasons. Including their iron man quarterback, Eli Manning. This choice sounds like a pick drenched in adding depth and competition in camp to me.
