1. Giants could look to add plenty of WR help in the next NFL Draft

Instead of a wideout in his 30s on a mega-deal, what about some youth for the wide receivers room? A healthy Wan’Dale Robinson will be back in 2023, but the Giants have already been linked to several potential first-round picks for the next NFL Draft this spring. One guy in particular has caught our attention: Jordan Addison.

Several Mock Drafts have the USC playmaker heading to East Rutherford starting next campaign. A former Biletnikoff Trophy winner, Addison would be a welcome addition for the Giants offense. If Mike Kafka remains in town – he has interview requests from the Texans and Panthers – he could really make an impact on Addison in his first year in NY, if the Giants end up taking him.

The Giants have other needs they need to address, but Addison would be a big-time get for this offense and he’d have a bright future from the start with the Giants. With Hopkins, there’s his injury history to worry about and the fact that he’s probably only got 1-2 more good years of action left in him.

For the price tag, there are much better ways for the Giants to use their money. This isn’t saying Hopkins won’t be a stud in ’23, but for the future of this team as a whole, we think it’d be wise for Schoen and the Giants to focus investing elsewhere.
