Jaylen Waddle would be a great go to target for Daniel Jones
In ESPN Mel Kiper’ Jr.’s first mock draft last month, he had the New York Giants selecting University of Florida tight end Kyle Pitts.
Kiper has now released his second mock and has the Giants taking Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle. Here’s what he wrote:
Can the Giants get Daniel Jones a No. 1 receiver? He has had Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and tight end Evan Engram as his top targets the past two seasons, and they’ve struggled with inconsistency and staying on the field. Now is the time to get a full evaluation of Jones. If they don’t wade into the free-agent waters, Waddle is the best option at No. 11. He is the top deep threat in this class and is electric with the ball in his hands.
If the Giants can get Waddle or any of the top three wide receivers in this year’s class it would be a huge victory because right now getting a number one target for quarterback Daniel Jones has to be their top priority.
I honestly like Waddle more than Ja’Marr Chase and Devonta Smith because of his explosiveness and I do believe he has the best chance of falling to the out of all three players.
