Wide receiver/tight end

Wide receiver:

  • Malik Nabers
  • Darius Slayton
  • Jalin Hyatt
  • Wan’Dale Robinson
  • Isaiah Hodgins
  • Miles Boykin
  • Bryce Ford-Wheaton
  • Chase Cota
  • Dennis Houston

Depending on which part of the fan base you asked, this was the most important area of focus for the Giants to target and address with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. The Giants haven’t had a 1,000-yard receiver since Odell Beckham Jr. back in 2018, so of course, the Giants went and got another wide receiver from LSU in Malik Nabers, who already on paper, is the No. 1 receiver for this team.

The Giants are hopeful for a better second season out of Jalin Hyatt, who didn’t quite have the rookie campaign everyone was hoping for. Wan’Dale Robinson showed flashes of being really good, but he also needs to show he can be more consistent, which can also fall back on the quarterback being better.

The Giants also have Darius Slayton, who didn’t get traded during the draft. He didn’t report to the team’s voluntary offseason program due to wanting a new contract. Some wonder if he will factor into the team’s plans, as he isn’t expected to be the lead receiver anymore and the Giants could look to go with the younger players over him in the offense, even if he has been the team’s leading receiver in four of the the last five years.

Tight end

  • (Darren Waller)
  • Theo Johnson
  • Daniel Bellinger
  • Lawrence Cager
  • Chris Manhertz
  • Jack Stoll
  • Tyree Jackson

We have Darren Waller listed in a bubble because there’s a good chance that he is either retiring at some point or the Giants decide enough is enough and release him. There’s a very good chance that Waller has played in his last game with the Giants and potentially, as a professional. But for now, he has a roster spot.

However, the Giants very much are looking and operating like a team not expecting Waller to play, which is why the tight end position was addressed very heavily in free agency and in the draft. The biggest addition to the spot was the Giants using a fourth-round pick on Theo Johnson, who probably becomes the top tight end if Waller hangs up his cleats.

Daniel Bellinger will get more opportunities to be the No. 2 tight end and be both a pass-catching option as well as a blocking tight end. The other tight ends will be battling it out for the third spot, which Lawrence Cager has been over the last few seasons.
