He is 5th right now and if Barden comes back to camp to try and make the roster he will be 6th. He could drop lower depending on where we draft a WR. He better show something this year, for his sake. I wouldn't call him a bust. He hasn't got the PT.
He's not a bust, just made redundant by Cruz.
That said, I did notice later on last season that the Giants were using a lot more 4 WR sets with Jernigan opposite Cruz... we could run something similar to an air raid offense, if only our OL was beefier so we didn't have to contribute max protection...
I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.
He's been invisible for several years -- best case is he becomes a usable 3rd receiver. I doubt it though.
Iv supported him since hes been here and really wanted to see what the kid can do, but I dont see how he sees the field with Cruz, Randle and possibly Murphy in front of him. We are really loaded at WR
With his increased work load toward the end of last season I believe the Giants want to get him on the field more. He has obvious skills that should result in production. With the depth we have I don't really see him getting enough playing time to show out. If Cruz goes down JJ will get his opportunity. If not I see JJ breaking out with another team when his rookie contract is up.
The fact that we went out and got Murphy tells me we've moved on. He's nothing but injury depth, if he makes the team at all.
Can a player that is relegated to be a backup player even qualify to be a bust or a breakout?
