Giants WR Malik Nabers won't let the huge expectations for him get to his head

The No. 6 overall pick is staying level-headed this offseason.

With all the hype and excitement surrounding his name, it's easy to forget that NY Giants wideout Malik Nabers is yet to make his pro debut. Taken with the No. 6 overall pick, Nabers has already won over countless people in New York.

People are dreaming of this kid posting 1,000 yards for the G-Men this campaign. Let's not jump the gun there, though. Nabers himself knows that this is a process. While he's humbled over the love he's getting from so many people, he also understands he still has a lot to learn. He made that much clear when asked how much of an impact he expects to make as a first-year playmaker.

Malik Nabers is facing plenty of rookie pressure for the NY Giants

"I'm not sure. I can only be a great teammate to the guys here, help my team win some football games, do anything Coach Daboll wants me to do in the offense."

Nabers plays the game with a ton of confidence and swagger, but at the same time, he's also showing plenty of maturity and saying all the right things while speaking with the media. During mandatory minicamp, Nabers acknowledged that he brings 'the juice' when on the field, but again, he also knows there's a long road ahead for him.

Despite Nabers being level-headed, we can't help but be fired up for the youngster's potential in 2024 and beyond. We saw at OTAs and minicamp how electric he can be with the ball in his hands. Next up at training camp in late July, Nabers is surely going to turn even more heads.

He's the kind of talent the offense has been begging for in recent years. With a healthy Daniel Jones set to play this fall too, plus an improved offensive line, it feels like the entire offense could be exciting to watch. That wasn't the case last season, but largely in part thanks to Nabers, we don't think that will be the case again in '24.
