Round 3, pick No. 69: Terrace Marshall Jr., WR – LSU
If the Giants are truly committed to Daniel Jones as the quarterback beyond this season, and miss out on the chance to choose either Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence or Ohio State’s Justin Fields, adding explosive weapons to Jones’ arsenal must be a top priority.
Marshall, 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds is a long and explosive receiver with a knack for getting open in the red zone, has caught 31 passes for 540 yards and nine touchdowns this season, while averaging 17.4 yards per reception.
The combination of Marshall’s high-end speed and his excellent ability of tracking the football on routes downfield give him the chance to be a legitimate deep threat at the NFL level. It’s easy to envision the Giants pairing Marshall opposite Darius Slayton as Jones’ outside receivers with Sterling Shepard in the slot, creating a receiving corps that forces secondaries to respect Jones’ ability to push the ball downfield.
