WR5: David Sills V
If you somehow haven’t picked up on it by now, this unit needs height and we add more of it in the form of David Sills V here. Acquired off waivers by the NY Giants at the beginning of last season, Sills V has quite the story, and during that story, he at one time led the entire NCAA in touchdown receptions.
He did that in large part by being 6’5”, towering over smaller defensive backs and dominating in single coverage – something he’ll get a lot of if he makes the active roster as a backup. What makes Sills V so interesting is that he was a former quarterback that signed a national letter of intent to play for USC when he was in the 7th grade.
However, he switched his allegiance to West Virginia University years later, played QB for one year, and then later in his career caught 18 touchdown passes at a position he never played before, leading the nation.
Listen, there’s a reason he went undrafted — he’s raw, and a bit slow with a 4.57 40 time. But still, there could be so much untapped potential that the NY Giants should try to find out about. I think they will, as he spent a little time on the active roster in 2019.
