Most Significant Rookie Addition: WR

The Footballguys staff examines the significant rookie additions at wide receiver

The Footballguys staff was asked to mention their most significant rookie wide receiver for the upcoming season. Most significant can have a lot of meaning, so - in this case - it means we just asked our guys to pick the rookie wide receiver they most wanted to write about. Here are the results.

Player Receiving 6 Votes

Sterling Shepard, NY Giants

Alexander: Corey Coleman has the highest ceiling of any rookie receiver, but Sterling Shephard has the safest floor. Shephard's role in two-receiver sets looks secure regardless of Victor Cruz's health. Rueben Randle leaves behind 90 targets in a Giants passing attack that's finished top-10 in pass attempts and passing touchdowns in both seasons Ben McAdoo has been responsible for calling plays. The book on Shephard is that he's an advanced route runner, tremendous athlete, and has great hands. With Odell Beckham demanding double coverage on the outside, Shephard should see favorable coverage regardless of where the Giants decide to line him up. Look for him to flirt with WR3 numbers as a rookie.
