3. WR Collin Johnson

Similar to Ford-Wheaton, Collin Johnson is another impressive physical specimen. However, he hasn't been healthy enough to show it. This is unfortunate because with how bad the Giants' receiving core was last season - it really seemed like Johnson could have been a huge game-changer for the Giants.

Johnson is 6-6, 222 pounds, and possesses a skill set that would have been very useful for the Giants last season. However, a torn achilles would cut his season short before it even began. Johnson tore up the preseason and it truly seemed like he was ready to contribute. Instead, Johnson has to restart toward the bottom of the depth chart.

The good thing, though, is that both Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka know what Johnson can do. He may start off low in the depth chart, but a strong training camp could quickly shoot him up into potentially a WR4/5.

Hopefully, Johnson can remain healthy. If so, the Giants could have an absolute monster on the outside. Having this sort of threat could be the game-changer New York needs offensively. You can't teach the height and size Johnson has, let alone the other skills he has for his size.
