2. WR Malik Nabers

Since Odell Beckham Jr. was traded to Cleveland, the Giants haven't had a true outside threat at receiver. We hoped to get that with Kenny Galloday, but we all know how that turned out. Jaylin Hyatt showed flashes with his limited snaps this year, but he seems to be more of a Mike Wallace-type who just burns downfield. The Giants need a true No. 1 receiver and the phenom out of LSU could be the answer.

At 6-1, 188 pounds, Malik Nabers has the size needed to be a team's No. 1 guy and he also has the skill. In his final college season with the Tigers, he had 89 catches for more than 1,500 yards. Those are impressive numbers in any conference, even more so when you consider some of the SEC defenses he had to go up against.

When you look at Nabers' game as a whole, there are pretty few, if any, weaknesses. There's a big reason he's considered the No. 2 receiver to go behind Marvin Harrison Jr. and you can see it when you watch him play. If Nabers is still available when the Giants need to send a pick in, it could be too tough for Schoen to pass up on him.
