The only surprise with former LSU wideout Malik Nabers will come if he doesn’t make an instant impact. The Giants have long lacked a legitimate No. 1 receiver, and Nabers has the traits needed to be exactly that.

At 6’0″ and 200 pounds, Nabers has enough size to be a regular threat on the perimeter. His straight-line speed (4.35-second 40-yard dash) will make him a big-play threat both before and after the catch.

“it’s easy to see how Nabers could make an instant impact in the NFL,” Derrik Klassen of the Bleacher Report Scouting Department wrote. “His combination of speed, quickness and yards-after-the-catch skills will translate into explosive plays right away.”

Last season, Nabers racked up an impressive 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns on only 89 receptions. His yardage production was more than twice that of Giants receiver Darius Slayton, who led the team with 770 yards.

Nabers may see a drop in production as a rookie, depending on what kind of QB play New York provides. However, he should step in as the Giants’ new top target and top the coveted 1,000-yard mark as a rookie.

New York hasn’t had a 1,000-yard receiver since Odell Beckham Jr. hit the mark in 2018.
