Jaylen Waddle is what the Giants need
Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus has released his latest 2021 NFL Mock Draft and has the New York Giants using the 11th overall pick on Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle.
Here’s what Palazzolo wrote:
Waddle is the first Alabama wide receiver off the board in part due to the deep speed that showed up in his averaging 18.9 yards per reception over his three-year career. Waddle was actually the highest-graded Alabama receiver on their loaded 2018 team. He adds a vertical weapon for QB Daniel Jones, who was quietly one of the best downfield passers in the league a year ago.
If the Giants can grab Waddle and pair him with wide receivers Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and even tight end Evan Engram, who has the ability to make plays despite an up and down season in 2020, it could help quarterback Daniel Jones take his game to the next level.
Of course the Giants could go in many different direction with their first round pick, but receiver or edge rusher make the most sense.
