Giants roster outlook: Wide receivers | #TogetherBlue

We're doing a series to provide an outlook on the Giants' roster until training camp arrives. Episode 3, wide receivers

At least there's something for New York fans to smile about on the offense, and that's their wide receiver group. There's enough talent to compete with basically all teams and there's also good depth in case anyone goes down.

The starting trio of Darius Slayton, Kenny Golladay and Sterling Shepard has three interesting and different options. Shepard is as sure-handed as it gets as a slot receiver, Golladay is the athletic guy who works best when using his strength to make catches and Slayton can create separation through a variety of ways, whether it's his quickness to make cuts or his speed to beat defenders vertically.

First-round pick Kadarius Toney didn't have the best of the rookie seasons, but he figures to be an important part of Brian Daboll's offense with a fresh start. He's a big play machine but he needs to be more consistent: when healthy and with the right state of mind, Toney can be a starter in the league.

Depth is not a concern as well, with Toney leading the pack but second-round rookie Wan'Dale Robinson also set to take an important role on the offense. Richie James is in the lead for the final WR spot on the roster as he can be a returner on special teams, but this spot is still wide open.

Wide receiver room grade: 5/5. There are some very talented guys and also a lot of depth. It's difficult to get better.
