  • Giants' Position Review: Receivers

    http://insidefootball.com/blog/archives/6313

    Excerpt: "Our weekend look at the units continues with the receivers.

    The Candidates:
    Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Louis Murphy, Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan, Ramses Barden, Kris Adams, Jeremy Horne, Brandon Collins, Kevin Hardy, Keith Carlos

    Key Injuries:
    Nicks is recovering from knee surgery and could be limited early on in training camp. Jernigan fought through a hamstring issue in the spring, his status for camp unknown.

    Battles to Watch:
    Spots one and two will be set with Nicks and Cruz, though it will be interesting to see just how much of Cruz’s snaps are given to Randle, whom offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said has earned the right to play, and will play on first and second down, as well as from the slot.

    With Randle having made such progress, we’re curious to see how Murphy, a deep vertical threat, factors into the mix. Murphy, who signed as an unrestricted free agent, who’s looked as though he’s been working with quarterback Eli Manning for years, and who has done a nice job of stretching the field in the spring practices."

    Interesting to see what Randle can do from the slot. He is a big target and can catch the ball in traffic. We know that. I just don't know if he has that signature quickness that the top slot guys have. No matter what, this has a chance to be our finest WR group ever.
    No one remembers who came in second.

      +1 I envision a lot of 3WR sets in our immediate future

        On paper they look great. Can't wait for the season to start.

          Nicks and Cruz only look great on paper?

            Why only mention them? Is this about the WR's meaning all of them?

              It is, but I suspect we can give Nicks and Cruz credit for past performance.

                          a nice core of receivers to say the least especially Nicks, Cruz, Randle and Murphy.

                          it sounds as if they should take the pressure off each other.

                          JJ will be poised to break out throwing another wrench into opposing defenses.
