That’s it, we’ve seen more than enough to hop aboard the Jaxon Smith-Njigba hype train. After a strong showing at the NFL Combine, the 6-1, 200-pounder turned even more heads at the Ohio State Pro Day. This came a day after NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll had dinner with him.

When speaking to the media on Wednesday, Smith-Njigba had nothing but good things to say about how his meeting went with Schoen and Coach Dabes. Not only that, but he said it would be a ‘dream come true’ to play for the Giants starting next season.

WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba would love to play for the NY Giants

As you can see from the video above, the Ohio State speedster not only enjoyed meeting with the Giants, but he’s also excited about the future for this team. So many people assumed NY would win 4-5 games in the first year with Daboll running the show in East Rutherford, but Big Blue went 9-7-1 and reached the postseason.

That playoff berth stuck out to Smith-Njigba, as did the upset win over the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card Round. With the future looking bright for this team, it really does feel like Smith-Njigba wants to be part of things.

However, it’s up in the air if that will happen or not. If the WR is still on the board at No. 25 overall, then we think there’s a good chance that Schoen will send his name in. However, there’s plenty of WR-needy teams picking ahead of the Giants, including the Ravens and the Patriots.

They could end up grabbing Smith-Njigba before Schoen has the chance to make the call. If everything falls into place, the thought of the stud pass-catcher making plays for Daniel Jones is enough to make Big Blue supporters smile. This is also something Smith-Njigba would love to see happen as well.
