Marquess Wilson and the NFL: New York Giants


Marquess Wilson Profile

NY Giants

Stacked Against the Pick:

A pretty solid young corps of receivers lie in New York. Kind of unknowns by and large, but that’s just how the Giants like it. Eli Manning is a quarterback that can make a lot of young receivers better, so maybe they don’t need to stretch it with more in the draft.

In addition, the Giants’ defense is lacking depth and/or playmakers at every level. Addressing the defense will be a high priority for the Giants early and often in the draft. On top of all that, not sure coach and player make the best combo in this case. As you know, Tom Coughlin demands things out of his players publicly and is very aggressive. Mike Leach is less of that, Wilson couldn’t handle that at Wazzu.

The Perfect Storm:

Marquess’ perfect storm to become a Giant is to drop out of the first four rounds. It’s not as if the Giants are stacked at receiver and with Eli Manning,Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks there to mentor him, Wilson could become a productive ‘behind-the-scenes’ receiver. Not sure he would be the most popular pick in New York, but if he’s a value (and he would be at 5th round or later) he may be worth the risk there.

Likelihood of Getting Drafted by Giants:

C- (Not much too this, I don’t think he’ll end up here, but if he drops his chances increase to a C+/B- in my opinion)
