One of the most questionable positions on the NY Giants roster entering the 2024 season is wide receiver. This is a spot New York has struggled to fill since trading Odell Beckham Jr. away back in 2019. Now, after drafting Malik Nabers, it seems like they might have their WR1, but the depth is looking a little rough.

While some guys on the roster could surpass their expectations, like Isaiah Hodgins or Bryce Ford-Wheaton, adding a more guaranteed veteran to the receiver room could bring some big-time rewards.

These four receivers are a little lower than they arguably should be on their respective teams' depth chart, meaning they could get acquired for little value. If this is the case, Joe Schoen should hop on the phone as soon as possible to get a deal done.

4. Laviska Shenault Jr., Seattle Seahawks

While it's been a couple of seasons since Laviska Shenault Jr. has been productive, it could be worth taking a swing at the former second-round pick. The lack of a real role over the last two seasons is certainly concerning, but considering he was playing for the Panthers, one of the biggest dumpster fires in the NFL, a change of scenery could turn his career around.

Shenault recently signed with the Seahawks, which could make trading for him tough. However, nothing is impossible, and there's even a real chance that Shenault gets cut before the season starts, so the Giants could end up adding him through free agency.

Regardless of how they do it, it may be in New York's best interest to bring Shenault in. The last time he played a healthy season, he racked up 63 catches and 619 yards. It's doubtful he would bring that level of production to the Giants, but we're sure Shenault can find some sort of role on a team so devout of consistent receivers.

According to ESPN, Shenault is the Seahawks' WR5, so if the Giants want to add him via trade, it won't cost anything significant. It all depends on if Seattle wants to give up on the 25-year-old WR just over a month after signing him.
