#1 – Roger Lewis
The New York Giants focused heavily on acquiring wide receivers this offseason. Cody Latimer and Russell Shepard are among the new additions.
Second-year player Roger Lewis had to unexpectedly take over No. 1 wide-receiver duties when injuries hit the receivers room last season. In 15 total games and eight starts, Lewis hauled in 36 receptions for 416 yards and two touchdowns.
His drops, however, are a cause for concern.
The team, as a whole, led the league in dropped passes in 2017 with an astounding 45, and if Lewis wants any chance at making the depth chart, he’ll have to clean up that part of his game.
Also, Hunter Sharp is surging and looking to earn his keep, so the pressure will be dialed up for Lewis.
The Giants overhaul this offseason was necessary to rid the negativity left by McAdoo’s reign. New coach Pat Shurmur may have his hands full getting the roster’s formula adjusted. If he can do it, then the team’s potential will be limitless.
