3. Ohio State WR Emeka Egbuka

Another wideout who could emerge as a favorite to land in East Rutherford this offseason is Ohio State's Emeka Egbuka. The junior is already off to a hot start in 2023, totaling 19 receptions for 263 yards and three touchdowns through four games. He's complemented Harrison Jr. very well this season and should continue to perform.

Last season, Egbuka was a starter with the Buckeyes for the first time in his collegiate career. He caught 74 passes from CJ Stroud, which totaled 1,151 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was crucial to leading Ohio State to an 11-2 record and a run to the Peach Bowl, where the Buckeyes lost 42-41 to the Georgia Bulldogs.

The Washington native ranks among the best wide receivers in this upcoming draft class and would make a great addition to any team he joins with his ability to play both slot and outside. His flexibility makes him an exciting prospect; however, one of Egbuka's best traits is his ability to stay consistent on third downs.

The 6-1 pass catcher could fit in exceptionally well with the Giants in 2024 and in Brian Daboll's system. If the speedster is still on the board when the Giants are on the clock next April, fans will surely be hoping Schoen sends his name in.
