1. NY Giants WR Bryce Ford-Wheaton

The man you've been waiting for: Bryce Ford Wheaton. Plenty of people were shocked that Ford-Wheaton didn't hear his name called during the NFL Draft. Multiple analysts predicted him to be a mid-round selection, but seven rounds went by without his name getting called. The Giants won out on signing him as an UDFA.

Ford-Wheaton put on a show at the NFL Combine, posting a 4.38 40-yard dash, while posting a 41-inch vertical leap. The wideout also had a decent senior season at West Virginia, hauling in 62 receptions for 675 yards and seven touchdowns. Ford-Wheaton will hope to be a surprise addition to the 53-man roster, but even if he doesn't make the Week 1 squad, having him on the practice squad will be key.

We predict the Giants to keep 6-7 wideouts for the 53-man roster. As things stand, there are 14 WRs listed on the official team website. However, you already know that number is going to start dropping once cuts start to roll in.

With Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins, Wan'Dale Robinson, Parris Campbell, Sterling Shepard, Jalin Hyatt and others in the mix, Daboll must feel good about his options at WR. Ford-Wheaton will look to make a name for himself as well. With his 6-4 size, he could be a matchup problem for opposing DBs. We have high hopes for him.
