[quote user="DavenIII"]mostly agree with the OP.
Rookies rarely contribute much their first years in the NFL, yeah I know we had a couple good years there in a row where they did, it is impossible for that to ALWAYS happen, I think it's unlikely that any of our draft picks this year will contribute a significant amount "This" year.
I hope I'm wrong though, because we need someone to step into the #1 WR spot ASAP.
Sorry Bro, but rookies contribute all the time. Making a blanket statement that THESE picks won't contribute is very short sighted. Adopting a wait and see attitude makes more sense. Reese certainly has earned the benefit of the doubt.</P>
Lawl already got this for me, but Rookie WR's in particular don't.
especially not as a #1 type WR, occasionally one jumps into the Slot and has a decent year, but it is incredibly rare for a rookie WR to step up and be a #1.
and IMHO Hixon is not a #1, and noone else is even close to it on our team.
Totally agree. Hixon is NOT a #1, and no one we have is. I was on the Edwards train since it left the station, but I'm not so egotistical to think I know better than JR. He deserves the benefit of the doubt. So I will wait and see and NOT throw out blanket statements regarding our draft picks.</P>
Question is, will any of the current receivers be #1s in the next few years? I say yes. Who says they need to be stars this year? I think the Giants have enough to win now, but they are a young team and should be building for the future, not signing a WR with a history of drops to a 10 million/year deal that will limit them in the future.</P>
Based on last year, I disagree that we have what it takes already. Maybe on defense, but we lack a #1. But, instead of writing this year off, I'm hoping Nicks can step in, but I just don't know.</P>
I think it will be interesting to see. As has been said before on this board, it is very different ot lose a star player mid season, than to be prepared for life without him going into the next year. I don't think it is impossibel for the Giant's to win with what they have. Are they the clear favorite, no. With an unquestioned #1 WR, I think they would have to be. There's a chance one of the young fellas steps up to fill the role, but more likely the Giant's will need to find another way to win next year. I don't think the last several games accurately represent what will happen this year.</P>
