New York Giants Draft: 5 Potential Odell Beckham Jr. Complements

De’Runnya Wilson, Mississippi State

For those not familiar with Wilson, you’ll see him at the next level soon. His 6’4 and 215lb frame is ideal for an NFL wideout, making him an intriguing prospect.

Wilson’s quarterback (Dak Prescott) received most of the publicity in Starkville (and nationally, for that matter), but that didn’t deter him from putting together an impressive college career. His 918 yards and 10 touchdowns were enough for him to forego his senior season and declare for the pro level.

Wilson’s size makes him an immediate red zone threat. He’s not going to blow by corners or shred safeties, but his impressive catch radius should allow him to win most of his 1 on 1 match-ups. Wilson is a bit of a project but one worth gambling on, “Blessed with undeniable traits and with refining of technique Wilson could be just scratching the surface of his potential,” notes CBS draft analyst Rob Rang.

It is worth noting that a marijuana arrest in March of 2015 is sure to raise red flags regarding his character.

Bottom line: Wilson is probably a day two pick, oozing with raw natural ability, be it rather unrefined. The New York Giants could use his playmaking ability in the red zone and he’d have a chance to win the starting job opposite Beckham during preseason. If the G-men decide to wait on taking a receiver, keep an eye on Wilson in the third round.
