Round Six: WR Geremy Davis
So Reese decided to stick to what he said after all. I guess he never ruled out taking a receiver. Geremy Davis is a high upside, low risk draft choice. It is pivotal that the Giants’ drafted a receiver in the wake of the Victor Cruz injury.
Davis is a UCONN product and managed to really shine in the program their. In 2013, Davis caught 71 passes for 1,085 yards. However, he really went on the decline the season after catching 44 passes for 521 yards. He managed to get these kind of numbers on a very shaky UCONN team.
Davis has the potential to really shine in Ben McAdoo’s offense. He has fantastic hands and get where he needs to be. He does need some polishing up though and who better to guide him than Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham.
A lot of impactful players over history were taken in the sixth round of the draft and the Giants can only hope that Davis becomes one of those players. Davis will not have an impact out of the gate, he is a work in progress.
