UDFA Rookie WR #1: Binjimen Victor
If there’s one thing the NY Giants receivers lack, it’s their glaring issue of size and height at the receiver position.
Binjimen Victor now enters the conversation.
The Giants have struggled to find a consistent red-zone option on the outside since OBJ left in 2019. Before Odell, it was guys like Plaxico Burress, Hakeem Nicks, and Victor Cruz doing damage in the red zone for the Giants’ offense in the late 2000s and early 2010s.
Binjimen Victor will look to become the next Victor Cruz instead of Corey Washington as the next sleeper receiver that went undrafted. Big Blue appeared to strike gold with Slayton last year in the 5th, can they hit on two unassuming receivers two years in a row?
Victor stands at an intimidating 6’4, 200 pounds. He uses his long body well and it helps him greatly to make contested catches and bring down jump ball throws.
Binjimen was a 4-star recruit entering Ohio State from Pompano Beach in Florida. While never a game wrecking receiver, he was a consistent option who made his presence felt over four years as a Buckeye.
Victor improved throughout his four years and had his best season as a senior, bringing in 35 catches for 573 yards and 6 touchdowns. He is a steady and solid option that shows up to play every game.
Binjimen provided Ohio State with a great, imposing target in the red zone. The Giants don’t have anyone with Victor’s size or height and he can develop into the team’s new red-zone target.
The Giants would be smart to give Victor extended looks in camp and in preseason games. He has the ability to produce as shown by his big game history and putting up consistently solid numbers in college despite seeing limited minutes. Look for him to be an undrafted rookie the Giants try to keep on the roster or place on the practice squad for 2020.
