3. Giants wide receiver Collin Johnson
We must remember Collin Johnson's name when discussing the Giants wide receivers room. The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Johnson in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft after being a star at the University of Texas. Johnson, a 6-6, 220-pounder could provide the Giants something their wide receiver core lacks: basketball height.
Johnson is three inches taller than the next closest Giants wideout. He excels in contested catch situations and has shown off that ability this summer.
The Giants had a subpar receiving core last summer, but Johnson likely would have been the Giants No. 2 receiver behind Sterling Shepard to start the season had he not gotten hurt. Johnson suffered a torn Achilles last August that knocked him out for the season.
Johnson was a preseason superstar for New York last year and could provide the role the Giants hoped Kenny Golladay signed when they gave the ex-Detriot wideout a monstrous contract in 2021. Johnson will likely play quite a bit on Friday, which provides a significant opportunity to show the coaches they need to include him on the roster.
