3. WR Brian Thomas Jr. - LSU

While Brian Thomas Jr. may not be the best LSU wide receiver in this year's NFL Draft, he is a prospect the Giants and many other teams should be calling about. Last season, Thomas had 68 receptions, 1,177 yards, 17 touchdowns, and an average of 17.3 yards per catch. Some of his best games this year were against Ole Miss, Army, Florida, and a win over Wisconsin in the Reliaquest Bowl, where he had eight receptions, 98 yards, and two touchdowns.

At the NFL Combine, Thomas ran a 4.33 in the 40-yard dash and jumped 38.5 inches in the vertical. The LSU wideout was picked to go 28th to the Bills in Kiper's most recent mock draft, but I could also see him land in Indianapolis with the Colts, who occupy the No. 15 pick. Still, theGiants should be all in on Thomas if they pass on a receiver at No. 6 or trade down in the first round. 

As we mentioned above, the Giants are in need of a new WR1. We don't think Thomas will be in the coversation at No. 6 overal, but we like his abilities enough where if the G-Men to fall back in the draft order, we'd like to see the front office consider him to be an option for this offense.
