Jerrell Jernigan

While many Giants fans bemoan the lack of activity by the front office, Osi?s distracting antics, and crippling injuries, there is one thing that most fans can take comfort in. That is a corps of young receivers who will be back for the team.

While there may be some issues regarding depth with this unit (hence the need to get Steve Smith back in the fold), the Giants do boast a veritable receiving duo in Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham, who are both coming off career years. As a unit, the team finished 10th in the NFL in receiving yards (242.8)

Nicks is the primary target. Nicks is coming off a season in which he caught 79 passes for 1,052 yards and 11 touchdowns, and that was only in 13 games. Manningham, meanwhile, also posted career bests with 60 receptions for 944 yards and nine touchdowns.
