By the end of the 2022 season, arguably the weakest point of the New York Giants offense was the wide receiver room. With season-ending injuries to both Sterling Shepard and Wan'Dale Robinson, the team was forced to rely heavily on the duo of Isaiah Hodgins and Darius Slayton.

Now heading into the 2023 campaign, the Giants wide receiver room has been re-tooled. With the additions of pass-catchers such as Parris Campbell, and the return of Slayton, Shepard, and Hodgins, this group has a legitimate chance to be a threat in the near future. In addition, tight end Darren Waller will be added to the mix.

With the draft quickly approaching, many expect the Giants to add a wide receiver early. In the first round, they could have their pick of elite options. But with other needs, they could also choose to wait until Day 2 to add another pass-catcher to the offense. If the Giants do wait until the second or third round of the draft, here are four wide receivers they could target:

4. Marvin Mims Jr., Oklahoma

During his time at Oklahoma, Marvin Mims Jr. produced three strong seasons. Over 37 games, the Sooners wide receiver hauled in 123 receptions for 2,398 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns while averaging 19.5 yards per reception.

In his third and final season at Oklahoma, Sims delivered his most productive campaign. Over 13 games, he recorded career-highs in both receptions and receiving yards. In total, he hauled in 54 receptions for 1,054 receiving yards and six touchdowns. On the way to his best season, he recorded four games with 100-plus receiving yards.

Mims has also managed to shine in workouts leading up to the draft. While his speed on the field was clear, he also recorded a 4.38 40-yard dash. While at Oklahoma, Mims showed that he can impact the offense anywhere on the field. Through his elite speed, he can win down the field, regularly beating opposing defenders.

For a Giants offense that has leaned heavily on the deep ball at times. Mims could be an intriguing addition. Coming in at 5-11 and 183 pounds, Mims isn't the biggest pass-catcher, but he still has an elite ability to get open, which appears to be what this team is looking for in their wideouts.
