Worth the wait? It's finally feeling that way. Everyone knows the NY Giants have been missing a superstar wide receiver since the days of Odell Beckham Jr. Ever since the G-Men traded OBJ to Cleveland, no one has been able to step into his massive shoes for the Big Blue offense.

The Giants have tried on several occasions to bring in a replacement, but nothing has worked out. That's not going to be the case for former No. 6 overall pick Malik Nabers, as countless people think this kid will be a special talent for Brian Daboll. Thus far at OTAs, Nabers is no question living up to the hype and the reports out of East Rutherford of late have been amazing to see:

That video from ESPN's Jordan Raanan has fans jacked up. Art Stapleton adding that he has not seen a receiver practice the way Nabers did since the days of OBJ is another reason to be excited about this kid's monstrous potential.

Nabers is going to look to keep his quality play going at mandatory minicamp and then of course when training camp gets here in July too. He still has football heads everywhere talking thanks to his unreal, leaping touchdown grab from Drew Lock at OTAs.

There are already countless comparisons to Beckham arriving, which is easy since they're both LSU products who ended up getting drafted by the G-Men. With his unreal confidence and swagger, it's easy to see a bit of Beckham in Nabers too.

We don't want to get too high on Nabers before Week 1 gets here, but it's hard not to. Giants fans have seen NY bring in Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay to try and be the lead playmakers for the aerial attack, but both moves could not have gone any worse (thanks Dave Gettleman!). Despite those two providing rough memories, the same won't be the case with Nabers - we're confident of that.
