The Giants have a glaring requirement at the pass receiver position and the company is doing their due diligence to see if they can fill it at this year’s draft.
Nine agents for the Giants remained in presence at Ohio State on Wednesday for the program’s Pro Day. Aside from possible No. 1 general choice, quarterback C.J. Stroud wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba was getting involved and it’s clear the Giants are interested.
In reality, the 21-year-old currently met Giants brass Tuesday night for a get-to-know-you supper.
“Great dinner, great conversation, great people and great coaches,” Smith-Njigba informed press reporters after Ohio State’s Pro Day was over. “I feel they are on the come-up. You saw it last year with them making the playoffs and doing their thing. I definitely loved meeting with them, had a great conversation. A great time.”
The 9 Giants agents consisted of GM Joe Schoen, head coach Brian Daboll. The group had the second-most agents at the occasion to see the Ohio State potential customers, according to Reese’s Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy.
The Giants have the No. 25 general choice at this year’s draft and might attempt and snag the Ohio State standout.
After an unbelievable 2021 season where he captured 95 passes for 1606 backyards and 9 goals together with Jets pass receiver Garrett Wilson and Saints wideout Chris Olave, Smith-Njigba had an injury-plagued season in 2022.
A hamstring injury minimal Smith-Njigba to simply 3 video games where he captured 5 passes for simply 43 backyards.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Texas native is hoping he can impress in the pre-draft displays and did enough in college to amass a sought after first-round choice. And if the Giants come requiring his services, he’ll be more than pleased to reveal what he can do.
“I would love to be in the Big Apple in New York,” he stated. “It would be a blessing. A dream come true.”
The 2023 NFL Draft starts April 27.
