1. Wide receiver

This team needs a true No. 1 receiver more than anything. There hasn't been a true elite receiver threat for the Giants since Odell Beckham Jr. got traded to Cleveland. Quarterback and offensive line are two of the most important spots in football, but in the Giants case, they need another playmaker.

That's why receiver is No. 1 on this list. Having an elite outside guy could make up for the rush the line gives up and make Jones maybe look serviceable. The Giants will have their chance to take whoever they think is the second best receiver in the whole draft with the No. 6 pick and they need to pull the trigger. Right now, the wide receiver room in Big Blue is filled with a whole bunch of slot guys.

Wan'Dale Robinson was awesome down the stretch and Jaylin Hyatt can have some Mike Wallace potential with his speed, but they aren't the complete package NY needs. Rome Odunze and Malik Nabers will be up for grabs when it's the Giants turn to pick and one of them needs to be in the Meadowlands in 2024. Either of those guys will make life easier for everyone in the building.
